Q: Is the Earth a special creation of God or just a “hunk of rock”?
A: When you read the creation account in Genesis, you find that the Earth is very special—actually it is really center stage. In fact, all the other heavenly bodies, the sun, moon and stars, were made for signs and seasons for the Earth. The Earth is the center of God’s attention—it’s not just an ordinary hunk of rock.
Evolutionist Quote of the Week
“Atheism is the philosophy, both moral and ethical, most perfectly suited for a scientific civilization. If we work for the American Atheists today, Atheism will be ready to fill the void of Christianity’s demise when science and evolution triumph.
“Without a doubt, humans and civilization are in sore need of the intellectual cleanness and mental health of Atheism.”
– G. Richard Bozarth, The Meaning of Evolution, American Atheist, p. 30, September 20, 1979
But the influence of evolutionary ideas has indoctrinated many people into believing the Earth is not special.
One of the most influential evolutionists, the late Carl Sagan, said this to the world just before he died:
“We live on a hunk of rock and metal that circles a humdrum star that is one of 400 billion other stars that make up the Milky Way Galaxy, which is one of billions of other galaxies which make up a universe, which may be one of a very large number, perhaps infinite number, of other universes. That is a perspective on human life and culture that is well worth pondering.”
What hopelessness there is in that statement! But what purpose and meaning there is in the statement from Genesis: “In the Beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” To learn more about special features of our planet, see The earth: how old does it look?
