Can you believe that?

Yoji Ookata, a deep-sea photographer and diver who has been documenting the deep sea for more than 50 years, discovered an amazing circular pattern of rippling sand about 80 feet below sea level and 6 feet in diameter on the ocean floor.

Baffled by the design he decided to capture by TV camera the designer behind the sculpture.

To his surprise, he found that a single puffer fish, no more than few inches long, had done the design by just one fin. Why work day and night to create such a beautiful sculpture?

This was all to attract the female fish to deposit their eggs in the ridges of the sand. The more ridges a design have the more likely it will attract the fish. I just can’t believe this happening by chance.

Where there is design, there must be a designer. The existence of design throughout the universe leads to the conclusion that there must be a universal designer.

Why must we believe that all design implies a designer? Because everyone admits this principle in life. For instance, suppose you came upon a deserted island and found “S.O.S.” written in the sand on the beach. You would not think the wind or the waves had written it by chance but that someone had been there, someone intelligent enough to write the message.

When the first moon rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, two U.S. scientists stood watching it. One was a believer, the other was not. The believer said, “Isn’t it wonderful that our rocket is going to hit the moon by chance?” The unbeliever objected, “What do you mean, chance? We put millions of man hours of design into that rocket.” “Oh,” said the believer, “you don’t think chance is a good explanation for the rocket? Then why do you think it’s a good explanation for the universe?

The human brain is the most complex piece of design in the known universe. So, could the design that exists in the human brain come from something with less or no design? Such an explanation violates the principle of causality, which states that you can’t get more in the effect than you had in the cause.

If there is intelligence in the effect (man), there must be intelligence in the cause. But a universe ruled by blind chance has no intelligence. Therefore there must be a cause for human intelligence that is beyond the universe: a mind behind the physical universe.
