Origins: Where Did I Come From?

In Psalm 139:14, David wrote, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” The miracle that is the human body filled David with wonder and awe. Andhe had never heard of a microscope!

The origin of life is a mystery that continues to challenge science. The more we learn of the intricacies of life, the more complicated we find it is. One particularly complex area of study is sexual reproduction.

The gene responsible for sperm production, known as the boule, is so vital that evolutionists believe its function has remained unchanged throughout evolutionary history. The boule seems to be unique and absolutely necessary to produce sperm. It had to exist and function correctly from the beginning.

David also wrote, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. . . . Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Ps. 139:13, 16, NIV).

In some aspects, the human body resembles an automatic assembly line that required someone very intelligent to program everything. Take a look at these examples:

Proverbs says, “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both” (Prov. 20:12). Like all of creation, their intricacy and complexity testify to a Master Designer, and not to random mutation and natural selection.
