Today is the Fourth of July, Independence Day in the United States of America.
Here is a portion of the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The signers of this document state that rights come from the Creator. It is no longer fashionable, and sometimes not even permissible, for somebody in government to claim that there is a Creator, much less speak about a Creator in public documents.
In my humble opinion, it is more difficult to believe that there is no creator than it is to believe in a creator.
If one believes that there is no creator, one must believe that all life, including human life, came about by a process of time and chance.
Bill Gates once said:
Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created. (Gates, The Road Ahead, Penguin: London, Revised, 1996 p. 228)
Human DNA is more complex than computer software. Think about it – Would anybody believe that computer programs come about be a process of time and chance? No, of course not. Computer programs need a programmer — and DNA needed a Creator.
