Who knoweth not?

NATURE

“But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?” Job 12:7-9

I love nature, all aspects of nature, whether it is the bright light of the sun shining on the leaves, or in the darkness of night, with a full moon, that brings a unique beauty to the clouds – like tonight, I just love nature.
Be it in beholding rich verdure of the a botanical garden, or the dryness of the veld in winter, I love spending time in God’s creation.
The above verse came to mind as I was outside, and saw the beauty of the sky, I wish I had a good camera to capture the moment – actually want to buy one to be able to snap up these moments. As I stood their, taking in the beauty of the moon, the fresh air and the beauty of clouds as they aglow with moon-light, I could not help but sense the greatness of the sight, and thought of Him that created all this. “Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?”
WHO DOES NOT KNOW?
That is the question Job asked, almost saying – “its so obvious that God exists, that it would be remarkable for anyone to question that”. But here is the thing – many do not see the handiwork of God in creation, they would rather suppose the laws of nature are to be credited for our existence.
You know what? As much as I do not believe in the theory of evolution, I just think it is an irrational theory, for which there is not any evidence. But that is not what annoys me about the theory, what annoys me is the fact that, many believe simply because “scientists” have said it, and have to questioned for themselves its validity. If Bible skeptics would put even half the effort in questioning the theory of evolution as they do in poking at the Bible, I believe they would have cause to doubt evolution’s claims.
Recently had a small talk with someone about evolution, and she stated their is so much evidence for evolution, one thing I forgot to do is ask for this evidence. I have yet to see it, I may be blind, but when you tell me one creature evolved into another, without showing the links inbetween, that should call for questioning; but it is not, why? Because evolution is a propaganda spooned to people till they eventually believe it to be true as that the sky is blue. Ray Comfort here did a good job of showing, how ignorant people are about the theory – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0u3-2CGOMQ.
I said to a friend, if Darwin was leaving in our day, where we understand so much more about the complexity of a “simple” thing like a cell, he might have left off the theory of evolution, just as Antony Flew did.
At the end evolution is a means of persuading men, that there is no God to whom we shall have to give a reckoning of our lives to, but at the end, sadly – men shall see the folly that they embraced, and the sad reality thus of what they lost.
