The atheist believes that nothing times nobody equals everything—that it all just happened. But the Bible says it is clearly seen. "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse" (Romans 1:20).
What does that mean, “being understood by the things that are made"? Well, if you have things that are made, you have to have a maker. If you have creation, you have to have a creator. That’s the reason the Psalmist said, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun" (Psalm 19:1-4).
What if I wore a watch that first started out as a bunch of parts in a box, and I told you that all I did was shake the parts around and it was formed? First, I put some random parts in a box. Then, I shook them around and the parts became a button. Then, after awhile I shook the box some more and the parts became a compass. And then after a few more shakes they become a watch. You would say I was lying. And yet, to think that creation just happened by blind chance is just as plausible. The Bible says, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God" (Psalm 14:1a).
