How did life begin here on our planet? Did God create all life in the manner reported in the Bible? Or did life crawl out of the oceans and gradually evolve into higher life forms over billions of years? Or was mankind transported here from a planet in another part of our galaxy in order to colonize the earth? Let's take a look at all three of these theories.
First, let's examine evolution. According to this theory, life began by accident. Those original early life forms gradually became more sophisticated, also by accident (or through survival of the fittest). To believe in evolution, one needs to believe there is no God, or one needs to believe in a weak god (not capable of creating life instantaneously by design ... only slowly by accident). To believe in evolution, one has to believe that a one-celled creature gradually changed into a two celled creature. And then the two cells became three, and so on. At some point, the cells decided to divide up their work, so organs were created. And then to support the organs, a skeletal system was grown. And to move the skeleton, a muscular system was attached to it. And to control this form, a brain was grown. And to help the brain make good decisions, ears were grown so that hearing could take place, eyes were grown so seeing could occur, and a nose was grown so smell could be detected. How did this simple blind, deaf creature know that it needed to see? Or hear? Or smell? And how did it know how to grow these organs when they didn't exist before? And how is it that most mammals (man, horses, dogs, kangaroos, etc.) all have the same organs (two eyes, two ears, and one nose)? Sure is a convenient accident. Personally speaking, I have a problem believing in the simultaneous occurrence of all these accidents. However, I don't mind if other people chose to believe in this theory. A lot of people believe in things for which there is no scientific or intellectual support. They believe in them just because they want to, or because they aren't aware of any other reasonable alternatives.
Next, let's consider colonization. Intelligent beings (our forefathers from somewhere out in the galaxy) decided to colonize the earth. So they brought us here, and then abandoned us. They left us with no machines. They gave us no education or special training. They just left us here to fend for ourselves in whatever caves we could find. They let us discover fire. And after aeons of years, electricity. That's just what we would do if were going to colonize another planet, isn't it? We would dump some people there, and go off and leave them. Maybe as an experiment? So thousands (or millions) of years from now our ancestors could find out how the experiment turned out. To support this theory, one also has to be able to explain where our galaxian forefathers originally came from. Did they evolve? If the theory of evolution is unacceptable for life here on earth, it is also unacceptable for the development of life forms on other planets in remote parts of the galaxy.
Finally, let's consider creation. The Bible tells us that God created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. There is no proof to support the Bible. But there is also no evidence to contradict it. The earth is the perfect distance from the sun to support and sustain life. Our atmosphere is ideal for life to thrive and prosper. And nature is in perfect balance, where the refuse of one system is the life blood of another system. For example, we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. On the other hand, green plants take in the carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. I believe this beautifully balanced system was created on purpose by the God of the Bible, in just the way He says He did it in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. I can't believe it's the result of one accident after another, with billions of accidents happening to create the perfect conditions for life to exist.
In conclusion, it is easier for me to believe in the God of the Bible than to believe in the accident theory or the colonization theory. The reason is simple. I have taken the time to think it through very carefully, and the other two theories just don't appeal to my normal good common sense.
