If you look at a Porsche and a Volkswagen, you might notice how similar they are. Because they are very similar in many ways, you might think that the same manufacturer made both cars, you would be wrong.
Now, transfer this idea to similar people. Some people look similar, but this does not mean they have the same parents. What does it mean? It means that the shape of a human is determined by a common plan.
The Porsche and the Volkswagen were made by two different manufacturers, but the plan for a car was the same. They all have a chassis, wheels, motor, lights, brakes, etc.
Cars may be similar but be based on a common plan. All cars use the same basic plan. In the same way, all animals and plants share a common plan, a code called DNA.
The question is, who wrote the DNA code?
Yes, there are similarities. Both apes and humans have eyes, noses, hands, mouths, hair, and ears. Do they have a common Designer or common ancestor?
Do apes write books? Do any pray before dinner?
One might think that true scientists would say, “Yes, that’s a good question,” but sadly, evolutionists forbid even remotely thinking there could be a common Designer.
It’s like going to a musical hall, listening to an orchestra, and thinking, “It all just happened.” No, each violinist is an individual and intends to follow the conductor. Same for trumpeters.
The notion that a Big Bang (chaos) could bring out harmony and skill undirected is nonsense to the highest degree. Many people want to be deluded—want to believe nonsense. Why? It gets them off the moral hook, but only in their minds.
They will have to give an account for preferring lies to truth, hate to love, and death to life.
Is there any hope? Yes, talk to Jesus in humble prayer Now.
