The Human Body
It Destroys the Theory of Evolution
Simple Difference
• Darwin’s Evolution – Gradually
Evolved Into Existence
• By Chance and Circumstance
• Intelligent Design – Happened All At
Gen 1:24, 27
Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth
living creatures after their kind: cattle and
creeping things and beasts of the earth after
their kind”; and it was so…And God created
man in His own image, in the image of God
He created him; male and female He created
Gen 1:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there
was light.
Goals of the Lesson
Understand and Believe:
1. The Human Body Is a Complex Machine.
2. The Human Body Is Made Up of Many Parts
That Work Together Perfectly and In Incredible
3. Every Part Has to Be Present For Life to be
Psalm 139:14
“I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully
and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your
works, And my soul knows it very well.”
The Limitation of Science
"Yet understanding how something works is
not the same as understanding how it came
to be" (Preface).
Taking Darwin To Task
"Darwin's idea might explain horse hoofs, but
can it explain life's foundation" (4)?
In Other Words, Darwin Might Have Been Able
To Explain How Animals Obtain Certain
Characteristics, But He Couldn't Explain How
Those Characteristics Came Into Existence (The
material that made that horse hoof).
Ps 111:2
“Great are the works of the Lord; They are
studied by all who delight in them.”
Behe's Examples
Blood Clotting
What Happens When You Cut Yourself? It
May Seem Simple From The Outside, But
Inside It Is Complex.
Blood Clotting
What Must Happen?
The Clotting Must Begin Quickly (Trigger).
The Clotting Must Cover The Whole Cut.
The Clotting Must Be Confined To The Cut.
It Must Know When To Stop Or It Will Clot
The Whole Body.
How Does It Happen?
When You Get Cut, A Protein Called
Fibrinogen Is Put Into Action.
Another Protein Slices Off Small Pieces of
the Fibrinogen.
These Small Pieces of Fibrinogen Interact
With Each Other. They Combine In Such A
Way As To Make A "Fish Net" Structure
That Catches Blood Cells.
How Does It Happen?
Then, Another Protein Attaches Itself To
Another Protein Which Can Cleave To The
Fibrinogen Which Then Forms The Blood
Clot. (Got That?)
The Truth Is That We Have Made This Too
Simple. In This Whole Process, Proteins
Interact, Connect, Divide, Cut, And Much
More To Control Timing, Speed, Activation,
Stoppage, and Interaction.
Ps 119:73
“Thy hands made me and fashioned me; Give
me understanding, that I may learn Thy
We Must Breathe to Live
How Does It Work?
We Take a Breath. We Inhale Oxygen and
Carbon Dioxide.
This “Air” Travels Through the Trachea to
the Lungs.
There Is Another Body Part That Makes Sure
It Doesn’t Go to the Stomach
The “Air” Then Enters the Lungs.
The Lungs Then Separate the Oxygen and
Send It to the Blood.
At the Same Time, the Lungs Remove the
Carbon Dioxide.
There are Several Muscles and Processes
That are Needed to Make the Lungs Pump.
Oxygen Then Travels Through the Blood to
the Body Carrying Needed Supplies to
Sustain Life.
In Reverse Order, Carbon Dioxide and Cell
Waste Pass from Tissue Cells Through
Capillaries to the Blood.
The Oxygen Stays in the Body and, As You
Breathe Out, the Carbon Dioxide Leaves.
When Something
Goes Wrong
A Signal (Trigger) Is Sent
to the Brain Telling It What Is
The Brain Computes the Information and
Sends Signals to Other Parts of the Body in
an Attempt to Fix the Problem or
Job 38:3-5
“Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will ask
you, and you instruct Me! Where were you when I
laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have
understanding, Who set its measurements, since you
know? Or who stretched the line on it?”
We Don’t Have Time
to Talk About
All That Has to Happen:
To Conceive and Give Birth
For the Body to Heal Itself
For the Body to Protect Itself From Heat,
Cold, and Much More.
Rom 1:20,25
“For since the creation of the world His invisible
attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have
been clearly seen, being understood through what has
been made, so that they are without excuse…For
they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and
worshiped and served the creature rather than the
The Take Away
The Human Body Is A Complex Machine
That Could Not Happen By Chance.
It Works With Incredible Order, Timing, and
All Parts are Needed to Sustain Life. If One
Is Missing, There Is No Life.
