By Design… Psalm 139:14-15 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Law of Teleology Where there is design, there must be a designer
100000000000000000 000000000000000000 0000000000000000 Sir Fred Hoyle, prominent British scientist…
WOW 100 TRILLIONThe body contains 100 TRILLION cells Cells are on average are less than 1000 th of an inch in length 1 MILLIONThere are about 1 MILLION cells in every square inch of our skin 30 BILLIONThere are about 30 BILLION cells in our brains 40,000Some 40,000 red blood cells would fit in the letter “O” 186 million miles400 timesAll the DNA in an adult if tied end-to-end would reach the sun and back (186 million miles) 400 times 400x186 million=7.44e+10
Hair Hair – eyelashes warn the eyes to close – body hairs squeeze oil glands – nose and ear hairs filter NO WAY… Bone Bone – when they break they immediately begin to repair themselves 4 TONS – A cube of bone 1 sq. inch in surface will bear w/o being crushed 4 TONS (ounce for ounce bone is stronger than steel, but 10 times more flexible)
SkinSkin size of a quarter –skin area the size of a quarter= 1 yd. of blood vessels, 4 yds. of nerves, 25 nerve ends, 100 sweat glands, and more than 3,000,000 cells constantly being replaced –upper layers are dead and constantly being replaced friction surfaces –hands and feet are friction surfaces for gripping –little hair…touch=emotion REALLY?? ? MusclesMuscles ¼ of a million –28 muscles in the face allow humans to make ¼ of a million expressions –Only humans can smile…
Digestive SystemDigestive System –incisors, canines, premolars, and molars… –Tongue: sense organ, manipulates food, fashions food, assists in swallowing, and tastes (9,000+ taste buds) –swallowing is a highly orchestrated arrangement of muscles…how’d man not die while evolving??? –Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself??? –small intestines are 20-25 feet long when uncoiled –multiple other organs help in digestion (liver, gall bladder, and pancreas) by providing digestive juices HMMM…
Circulatory SystemCirculatory System –heart weighs only 11 ounces, but is the strongest muscle in the body –heart beats 70-80 times per minute –can beat 150-180 times per minute (automatically regulates) –blood rushes where it needs to go>>> eating…rushes to the stomach exercising…to lungs reading…to the brain 100,000 times per day, 40,000,000 time per year1,800 gallons of blood a day –Heart beats 100,000 times per day, 40,000,000 time per year; it pumps 1,800 gallons of blood a day!!! WHOA…
Nervous SystemNervous System –regulates all the other organs (liver, kidneys, muscles, etc…) –monitors the senses (seeing, hearing, feeling, etc…) –controls thinking, learning, and memory –Nerve receptors 3 to 4 million3 to 4 million structures in the skin sensitive to pain ½ million½ million touch detectors 200,000200,000 temperature gauges 300 mph!!!Info. transmitted to the brain at speeds of 300 mph!!! Think about it… AMAZING!!!
Nervous SystemNervous System 500 milesof book shelves –It would take 500 miles (Atlanta to Norfolk, VA) of book shelves to store the info. the brain is capable of storing Think about it… AMAZING!!! SENSORY ORGANS -Eyes186,000 mph 137 million nerve endings1.5 million simultaneous messages80% -Eyes: light enters at 186,000 mph, images picked up by 137 million nerve endings, the eye handles 1.5 million simultaneous messages, and gathers 80% of all the knowledge absorbed by the brain…
Think about it… AMAZING!!! SENSORY ORGANS Ears 25,00025,000 audio receptors 30,00030,000 nerve fibers 25,000 per secondBrain receives sound vibrations up to 25,000 per second Brain interprets as voice, thunder, music, etc… as many circuits as a good sized city’s telephone systemThe inner ear, no bigger than a hazelnut contains as many circuits as a good sized city’s telephone system…
This isn’t even all… What about… The Respiratory System The Respiratory System The Excretory System The Excretory System The Endocrine System The Endocrine System The Reproductive System The Reproductive System
The Spiritual is also by design… Genesis 3:6Genesis 3:6 Genesis 3:15 (1 st “Gospel Sermon”)Genesis 3:15 (1 st “Gospel Sermon”) Romans 3:23Romans 3:23 Genesis 12:3 (2 nd “Gospel Sermon”)Genesis 12:3 (2 nd “Gospel Sermon”) Matthew 1:1-17—Genealogy of JesusMatthew 1:1-17—Genealogy of Jesus John 3:16John 3:16 Romans 6:23Romans 6:23
The spiritual is SUPREME… Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
The spiritual is SUPREME… II Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
The BIGGEST decision of all… Its got a DESIGN HearHear…Romans 10:17—for faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God BelieveBelieve…John 8:24—if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins RepentRepent…Luke 13:3—but unless you repent you will all likewise perish ConfessConfess…Matthew 10:32-33—whoever confesses Me before men, him I will confess before My Father who is in heaven… Be baptizedBe baptized…Mark 16:16—he who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
