"Designed to Succeed
One of my favorite sources for evidence of creation and a creator is, "I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist," by Norman L. Geisler and Frank Turek.
In their book they speak of such things as "specified complexity," for instance the message found in the DNA of a one-celled amoeba; even staunch Darwinist Richard Dawkins admits that message is more than all the 30 volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica. The nitrogen-based genetic alphabet A,T,C,G and the way they are arranged in a living cell communicates the specified complexity of that cell. Does that sound random to anyone?
They also list four "anthropic constants" or those atmospheric conditions that make life possible for us here on earth: the exact percentage of oxygen in the air we breathe, the nitrogen level, carbon dioxide level. Consider also the gravity we are subject to. If it were altered 0.(37 zeroes)1 percent we would not exist. Wow.
Does that sound like precision? Does that sound like design? Design requires a designer.
