Mother Nature and Father God

Who are you?

You are an intelligent person. You have your own will. You also have your own emotions. Additionally, you also own a physical body somewhat like you own a vehicle. As I mentioned in an earlier blog "The GOD I believe in", you are not your body. Alternately, your body is not you. Any one taking a space flight will need a space suit, to survive in space, which is hostile to your physical body. After returning from space, the space suit is put aside. Similarly, your body is your earth suit, designed for you to live in this physical world. With your mind, will and emotion you make changes to the world in which you live through your body.

How did you get your body? We do not have human body shops to order one. Your mother produced it for you. What will happen to your body when you put it aside? It will decay and turn into earthly materials it is composed of. It is the life in you that keeps your body living.

Mother Nature

A mother is a living person with a mind, will and emotion of her own. From time to time we keep on hearing about Mother Nature. Who is this Mother Nature? Where is the residence of Mother Nature? Does this Mother Nature have a personality? There is a two way relationship between a mother and her child. How do you have a relationship with Mother Nature? Wikipedia defines Mother Nature as '... personification of nature that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature by embodying it in the form of mother ...'. Your mother gave your life and nurtured you. Since nature is impersonal, personification of nature leads to lot of wrong assumptions in the mind of people.

Father God

I guess the people who personify Mother Nature are the people who are looking for an alternate to Father God. In an earlier blog I had shared about the God I believe in. Father God of The Bible has personality and has mind, will and emotion. God of The Bible in Exodus 3:14 says about Him, "I AM WHO I AM". One of the important characteristics of a mother is her love for her child. Can Mother Nature love? The God of the Bible is a loving God. John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life".

Next time whenever you see the term 'Mother Nature', please examine if the statement can literally be true. Try to substitute 'Father God' instead of 'Mother Nature' and see if it makes sense.

Your body

In The Bible Psalm 139:14 says "Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it". You have a wonderful body. Did you or your parents do anything to make it the way it is? Each and every part of your body is so complex and purposefully designed. Yet evolutionists attribute the complexity of an intelligent work to non-intelligent Mother Nature.

According to a National Geographic article the human body is estimated to have anywhere between 5 billion to 200 million trillion cells. The following image of human cell is taken from here.

See how complex a single cell is. How numerous they are in a human body carrying out many different functions. Do you think a non-intelligent impersonal mother nature could evolve into this level of complexity without intelligent design?

The following image is taken from here. This structure shows the signalling mechanism that cells use for communication.

Some of our complex systems are designed using computers and intelligent software. Who designed and implemented this complex cell pathway signalling without computers and software?
