Nobody Made It
Many years ago Sir Isaac Newton had an exact replica of our solar system
made in miniature. At its center was a large golden ball representing the
sun, and revolving around it were small spheres attached at the ends of rods
of varying lengths. They represented Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and the
other planets. These were all geared together by cogs and belts to make
them move around the "sun" in perfect harmony.
One day as Newton was studying the model, a friend who did not believe in
the biblical account of creation stopped by for a visit. Marveling at the
device and watching as the scientist made the heavenly bodies move on their
orbits, the man exclaimed, "My, Newton, what an exquisite thing! Who made
it for you?" Without looking up, Sir Isaac replied, "Nobody." "Nobody?"
his friend asked. "That's right! I said nobody! All of these balls and
cogs and belts and gears just happened to come together, and wonder of
wonders, by chance they began revolving in their set orbits and with perfect
The unbeliever got the message! It was foolish to suppose that the model
merely happened. But it was even more senseless to accept the theory that
the earth and the vast universe came into being by chance. How much more
logical to believe what the Bible says, "In the beginning, God created the
heaven and the earth." The Word also declares, "The fool hath said in his
