Our four youngest grandkids on a recent camping trip.

Recently, I came across a quote from a well-known, well-respected secular developmental biology text written by Dr. Scott Gilbert.

In his text, when describing the embryo, he writes of the amazing and seemingly miraculous biological developments that need to happen in order for that embryo to fully develop.

Gilbert writes…

“To become an embryo, you had to build yourself from a single cell. You had to respire before you had lungs, digest before you had a gut… form orderly arrays of neurons before you knew how to think…”
(Scott Gilbert – Developmental Biology)
Think about it:

The embryo had to…

Build itself from a single cell.
Respire before it had lungs.
Digest before it had a gut.
Form orderly arrays of neurons before it knew how to think.

The intricacy and design of the human body is nothing short of astounding.

“For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.”
(Psalm 139:13-14 ESV)

When I teach on worldviews, I share that I believe:

Theism is the best explanation of the observable universe.
Christianity is the best explanation of theism.
Design or chance?
