I was walking early one morning when it was so dark I still needed a flashlight. Off in the distance I saw a pair of eyes shining back at me. It was a deer (I think? I hope?) but it scooted away before I got close. However, I was able to see the eyes shining back in a green color. This got me thinking about nature and creation and evolution and all that stuff, kind of deep for the wee hours of the morning!
This little moment reminds me there IS a creator. I just can’t believe in evolution and here’s a small example of why. Those deer eyes. They aren’t different (or at least not drastically different) than yours or mine. They’re probably very similar to my dogs’ eyes. Speaking of which, one has brown eyes and the other has blue eyes.
When I shine a light and my dogs look towards it, their eyes don’t light up with the same color as each other. All I can think is that if evolution was a real thing, why would there be diversity in any one species? I think nature, as a matter of science, would consolidate the features of all dogs and just make everything as uniform as possible. In fact, it would most likely keep things as simple as possible so those deer eyes would be just like the eyes of my dogs, and the bear, and an eagle, and a newborn baby.
Science might be able to explain how the light-reflecting colors are different, but it cannot explain why. Only a real and living creator would come up with something so seemingly minute, a detail that has a small role in the big picture, and choose to make it so.
This is just one little example that shows the complexity of all these creatures, including humans. Side note: This complexity in humans is part of why I’m pro-life. Just check out this post I wrote awhile back. Animals, mammals and nature itself is so complex that I HAVE to believe there’s a mad scientist behind it all. Well, “mad scientist” who can also be described as an unbelievable artist with an imagination that’s literally out of this world. I mean, just look at this photo from the gulf coast. There’s water and sand in the lower portion of the image, and then BAM the Milky Way, a few thousand stars, and beauty that cannot be matched.
So you have this breathtaking and gigantic galaxy, just a portion caught in a photograph, then something as tiny and seemingly simple as this.
To wrap up by going back to the eyes of the deer and the eyes of my dogs, wouldn’t nature just make all dogs (and even all animals) eyes the same when reflected in a light? That little detail is enough for me to, at the very least, wonder.
I go beyond wondering, though. More often than not, it turns into a situation where I’m noticing the creation and marveling at the creator.
