|God the Father 16 (Photo credit: Waiting For The Word)|
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
New King James Version (NKJV)
Faith is required to believe such a story as the creation of man by God. Yet is it any more outlandish than to believe that life went through billions of years of gradual changes through numerous organisms and species until a human came into being. Believing in that takes a great deal of faith from my point of view. They are theories and suppositions from the incredible human mind.
This mind of man--is it the product of evolutionary process that began with cells brought to life by a force like lightening and then gradually evolving into various creatures and culminating in the appearance of humans? The balance and interconnectivity of a complex universe and our biosphere Earth is difficult to conceive as an act of randomness--even if it took trillions of years. The intelligence of the way everything falls into place begs for a theory of Intelligent Design.
There is a history before the coming of humankind that no man knows in detail. According to the Bible, the history of humankind begins with one man. That man is known as Adam.
