As it's been mentioned, many in the world today do not believe there is a Creator. Much of mankind has this thinking that it all just happened from something else. The Earth, sun, moon, stars, and all the other heavenly bodies or objects must have formed from some kind of a cosmic accident that was originally formed from something else in the second heaven. Even if it was formed from some kind of a cosmic accident, could there be a reason for it? Is it possible that these things were created from nothing? Could Earth just have appeared from zilch? Because of the way we are taught, I can truly understand why it would be assumed by many that Earth came from the heart of nowhere.
The first verse in the Bible is a passage of scripture which many people are familiar with. As I had mentioned, it tells us where our universe and our world came from. There is a great company of people who believe that this account is simply a myth, along with most of the other stories found in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. However, these chapters are widely quoted throughout the rest of the Bible in other ways. Either the information in Genesis is factual, or the entire Bible cannot be trusted to be true. It's really your call, as the Creator did give us all separate minds and a free will. Actually, there is no logical reason to doubt the facts presented in Genesis, but there are many reasons to be wary or skeptical about the doubters or unbelievers. There are so many who don't want to believe that our universe was created by an extremely higher intelligence or authority. However they must, but won't, explain how this world came to be without a Creator. Maybe they don't really care one way or the other. If you are one that cares, then perhaps we can look at the fact of how well this Earth runs in accordance with the rest of the second heaven. I wrote about a similar subject concerning the universe earlier in this book. There are too many facts that all fit together in a perfect manner to say that it all just came from something else,
that in turn, came from something else again, and that it happened to come together and finalize from some sort of a cosmic blast. It would be like saying that a word factory exploded, and this book came into being. Suppose you were walking down the street and you stumbled across a laptop computer lying on the side of the road. Would you come to the conclusion that the elements just happened to shape and form the laptop at that particular spot, or would you conclude that a computer company did the assembly, and someone lost it? I'm sure you would assume a computer company made the laptop because we know that for a fact and can see that elements rarely shape things into modern-day tools. The natural process tends to tear most things down, not build things up. Only when some intelligence is applied do we get complex function. When we look at Earth and its complex function, the natural conclusion is that there must have been some intelligence at work to put the second heaven into operation. Doesn't this imply that there must be a Creator? The only alternative to a Creator is to believe that the universe came into existence through random events. In my view, for what it's worth, there are far too many deep rivers to cross without bridges, to think that way.
