I have always had a problem with the theory of evolution. Even when I learnt about it at school I can remember having serious doubts. It is cold, detached, far-fetched and simplistic. And should it really be presented as absolute truth when none of us knows for sure?
There is a great deal to advocate the presence of intelligent design in the world. Ever heard of something called ‘The Golden Ratio’? It is one of the strongest pieces of evidence to suggest that the universe was formed by a creator rather than chance. The Golden Ratio is a precise measurement/angle/spiral which repeatedly appears in nature. It is in the swirl of a snail’s shell, a pine cone and a pineapple. Even the human umbilical cord follows the exact same measurement. As does the DNA double helix.
Our whole physical form is worked out by The Golden Ratio; the spaces between our eyes, the lengths of our arms and the positioning of our mouths. These are a hell of a lot of coincidences to ignore if you believe in evolution.
I see nature as perfection; the only time it is polluted is when man interferes. We bleed to clean our wounds, our eyes water to wash away dirt and we heal when we are injured. The human body is an amazing piece of machinery. It is difficult to believe it is so cleverly constructed by what amounts to a freak accident.
If you don’t want to believe in God then that’s fine; just have it about you to question the nuts and bolts of things. Remember that the theory of evolution is only an idea which Darwin came up with. Even if the majority of people believed in evolution then it would not make it the truth.
