The Almighty Artist
|Created by P dv on 04-11-2006 Category: Evolution related|
How often do you look at a beautiful painting and say, “I wonder how this one evolved?” Or do you ever look at a beautiful house, car or sculpture and say, I wonder how this evolved? No. You know they were designed. You know this because you have common-sense! You think.
Artists go further - they not only look at these beautiful things, but really appreciate it and often try to determine how it was created. They want to learn because they need that to be more creative in their own creations. So when I look at nature, the clouds, the trees, plants, animals and people, I can only appreciate the design, because it is impossibly complex. The variety is beyond the imagination of a human mind.
I have tried to imagine how they were made, and how I would do it, but it is far beyond any human to create it. But one thing is true: they were created. A complex nature filled with a perfect food-chain and inter-reliant systems cannot happen or evolve. For one system or animal to rely on another, the first has to be there. Timing has to be perfect. Evolution is only an idea - far from logical knowledge. Artists know that beauty does not happen, it is made - often by hard work and lots of skill.
Take 20 minutes and study the clouds. You will realise that something so beautiful cannot happen by chance. Now take 5 minutes every day and look at the clouds, the variety and beauty is beyond us.
I don’t know how He did it - but I know one thing - God is an artist!
