Although people can tell that God exists, because it is obvious that a super intelligence made the universe, they will still deny His existence. They will proclaim their own wisdom, but watch what they start to embrace,

Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things (Romans 1.22–23). 

If God does not exist, they have to find an explanation for why we exist. They embrace the exaltation of animals, either worshiping them as gods, or claiming that we have descended from them, so that in some way, they see animals as the responsible ones for our existence.

Questions:

  • Have you seen people’s lives change for the worse when they embraced evolution?
  • What do you think is the best evidence for the existence of God?
