Works of Technology and Art Are All Examples of Design
In our day-to-day lives, we come across wonders of design. For example, the bridge we walk across, the skyscraper we work in, elevators, knives and forks, a crocheted tablecloth, our clothing, car, briefcase and eyeglasses, newspapers, television and the pictures on our wall—each of these things was planned, designed and produced by someone of intelligence, knowledge and skill.
No one in his right mind would claim that these finely crafted objects in our streets and houses brought themselves into existence by a natural happenstance.
Most likely you don't personally know which engineers, technicians, and workers constructed the bridge you walk across every day, but you are certain that there had to be such people as these. When you see a late model car that you like, you appreciate its designers—even if you never meet them.
So, anywhere we find a product of a planned design, we can always be sure that somewhere, there has been a designer who brought that product into being. But in this matter, Darwinists are prejudiced. Some people, although they are not scientists, maintain that all the superior designs we see in nature, much more wonderful than the ordinary artificial constructions we encounter in everyday life, were formed by chance. They have been conditioned—if not instructed—not to believe in Almighty God, the Creator of all the designs found in the universe.
As God says in the Qur'an (7: 179): "... They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with."
Darwinism's formula is: Time + Mud + Chance = A human being
According to evolutionists, human existence is the end result of millions of years of progress, up from muddy water with the help of chance. They believe that the combination of these random forces gave shape to the human brain, intelligence, cognitive ability, judgment and memory. So it is that evolutionists regard these three forces—time, mud, and chance—as their gods, and believe that over the course of time, these false gods created the human intelligence that can examine the heavens with a telescope, produce fiber-optic cables, use computers, construct high-tech robots, develop holograms and invent cellular telephones. The power they impute to this threesome is actually enough to elevate them into a trinity.
Holding tightly to their deviant ideas, Darwinists do not forsake the crushing defeat of their logic which they suffer, only to deny the existence of Almighty God.
Paul Davies, a well-known professor of mathematical physics at Australia's University of Adelaide, writes,
If the world's finest minds can unravel only with difficulty the deeper workings of nature, how could it be supposed that those workings are merely a mindless accident, a product of blind chance?26
According to Darwinism, designers, architects, engineers, scientists all came to be, after eons, from a puddle of muddy water with the help of chance. These claims are like suggesting that the architectural wonder of a palace by the sea came to be by chance over the course of time, thanks to waves beating on a beach's sand and pebbles.
Human beings have intelligence, awareness, and will; are capable of making intricate calculations according to the laws of physics whereby they can design massive tons of steel to float on the water or fly through the air. Quite clearly, they couldn't have come to be by the operation of chance over time. But evolutionists, hypnotized by their theory, cannot see the illogicality.
To believe in Darwinism means the total abandonment of thought, intelligence and logic. No rational person could declare that stones can line up, all by themselves, and construct a skyscraper with all its features, by chance. But Darwinists claim something even more nonsensical than that: they claim that a puddle of water on the ground engendered life and, with the help of chance and endless millennia, eventually formed human beings with the awareness and intelligence to build towns, discover the light bulb, produce thousands of kilowatts of energy to light the cities they built, and perform the intricate calculations necessary to construct bridges and skyscrapers.
Evolutionists believe that five billion years ago, a few atoms came together and formed a perfect plan. According to this fantastic scenario, lifeless, unconscious atoms came together with the help of wind, storms, lightening, ultraviolet rays and earthquakes, to form living things. To claim that the individuals who made the architectural works you see in this photograph arose by chance is even more illogical than believing that masses of stone quarried themselves and became perfect architectural masterpieces, through the effect of wind-erosion over the course of centuries.
Darwinism's purpose is to persuade people to deny the clear and certain fact of creation. To do this, Darwinists try to make everyone believe that living things' wonderful and excellent systems came to be through a long series of chance events. All the scientific proofs and evident facts displayed in front of their eyes can't change their minds. Those who espouse this deviant view would find ridiculous the claim that the pyramids—whose incomparable design even modern technology cannot explain or duplicate—came into being randomly over the course of time. But they display an even more serious logical flaw in resorting to every means to prove that the human intelligence and skill that brought about the pyramids resulted from the formula:
When someone walks into an art gallery and views a show of pictures, he immediately understands that they were painted by a talented, experienced, knowledgeable artist. Even if he cannot see the painter, he would never doubt that the artist exists. No one would claim that these works were formed by the chance spilling of paint on canvas. And someone who liked one of the paintings wouldn't praise the pigments that formed the paint, or the linen that was woven into the canvas but rather, the individual who conceived and painted it.
All the beautiful things we see around us belong to God, the Creator of everything. The only One Who deserves praise and thanksgiving is our Lord God, Who made everything He created with consummate perfection.
If we cannot believe that the static, two-dimensional, inanimate scene in a picture is the result of pure chance, how can anyone think that the three-dimensional, living, incomparable perfection of the painting's subject matter is the work of blind chance?
The cushions, fabrics and curtains you see in this picture are all the products of design. Several artisans worked on each one of them. People who clearly see that the designs in this picture could not have been accidental, nevertheless believe that the living things that the material comes from and the people, who make the designs, came to be by chance.
This illogic is only one of the innumerable proofs that demonstrate how the trance of Darwinism affects the minds of some individuals.
