You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Daniel 2: 34 & 35
Would you rather know the Truth, or simply have a Theory? In the world of particle physics & such lofty pursuits as string theory, there seems to be a lot of, well, theory, floating around out there! Many scientist, especially those who are to damn smart for their own PhD, seem to be full of theories! Because they believe that truth is relative, they have no way to gauge it ( it doesn't register ), so therefore, all they can do is theorize about the foundation of the Universe & hope to come up with a TOE ( Theory of Everything ) before their own gets stubbed!
The Universe is very obviously the product of Intelligent Design; Chance could never be this beautiful! Many people prefer to call this Intelligence 'Life', as the mathematician in the first Jurassic Park movie, 'Life finds a way' & while that may be a fair representation of things, it does not explain where Life got its beginnings, or genesis! The one-celled organism that crawled out of the primordial ooze & evolved into the complicated biology that we know so little about just doesn't cut it!
Evolution, or more correctly, adaption, is a scientifically provable fact, as far as we understand it, but in order to evolve or adapt, there must be a beginning! Something usually doesn't come from nothing! Infinity, on the other hand, allows for the Eternal Existence of....................Something! If Life always existed, with no beginning or end, then the theories that scientists like to elaborate on might find some basis; maybe there was some preexistent matter floating around out there in some preexistent space/time vacuum that collided with another bit of preexistent matter at speeds approaching that of preexistent Light & Big Bang Theory, there was a beginning!
Over millions & billions of years, individual planets were formed & became habitable, plants grew & succored Life, Biology climbed out of the aforementioned primordial ooze& evolved into all the wonderful creatures that we enjoy today! Whether or not this is a verifiably factual scenario, it had to start somewhere! Even given that the Universe is Infinite, Chance could never engineer the wonders that we witness every day!
The Simple Truth is, there IS a Creator; One so far beyond anything the intelligence of man can contrive that it is laughably wondrous! Scientists & people of all ages have tried to mimic what only the Creator of the Universe could do & have failed miserably! We HAVE adopted the ability to more or less successfully clone biology, though not human to my knowledge, but that is only a crass mimicry of what is already existent! Mankind will never be able, like their Creator, actually create, as out of nothing; we can only procreate, in essence, work with preexistent materials!
Since we know the Truth, we have no use for a Theory Of Everything! Although we have an Eternity before us & will never get to the point where we understand fully, much less comprehend this wondrous Creation, there is Assurance that what Exists IS Created & that it was Created & IS upheld in all its mysterious wonder by an Intelligent Designer!
