We have a very good friend here who has the opportunity to come and walk around their fields and you want to find a place to talk in the middle of a lush vegetation and I can’t think of a better place Do it here I agree. Stuart, you’ve done so many great things. You’ve done a lot of great designs, even spacecraft, right? Yes, I’ve been designing for almost thirty years and I think spacecraft will be one of my favorite areas. Definitely one of the most difficult due to the very serious work found in space. Purposeful design and beauty.
Yes. Wheat would be an example that was part of a construction designed for humans, but whatever I see, whether it’s a bird, a tree, or a plant. But on the other hand, there are no six seconds, but six days, because God wants to show that man’s creation process is at the center of his purposes, on the earth and in the universe. And I also think that God has set up a great model in the form of a seven-day week, six-day work, and one-day rest.
I think it’s very humble for God to create the universe in a way that helps with a working week model. And interestingly, wherever you go around the world, people only have seven days a week. But if the Bible is correct, this is perfectly logical. Okay, you also see a lot of compositional systems. Let’s go over it. What is the big system you see? For example, the first law of thermodynamics says that you cannot create or destroy energy. But accordingly, you can only keep this world around us if a God makes it.
Thus, the first law of thermodynamics is fully compatible with six days of construction. And then there is the second law of thermodynamics, which is that entropy and disorder in the universe are always increasing, and therefore you need a supreme power, you need God so we can feel this universe. And interestingly, we see a separation occurring in the first three days of creation. On the first day you have a separation of light and dark, on the second day, on the third day in the universe, the bottom and top water separation because engineers often perceive the mixture as a process of disorder. For this reason, it is interesting to see that every day of creation, God brings matter and order to the universe. So, Stuart, these are the working days that we see God go through in each of those days. Can you take such a step towards what you did with me in each of those days? Therefore, one day we see God, who is the basis of creation, the world. Start with the foundation. Light and water, and we now know that these two elements are very fundamental to life. We can feel the heat of the sun above us, it feels good, but it’s amazing when you consider that the heat travels millions of miles through space. Therefore, light is very important. . Because light includes all the colors of the rainbow, and one of the wonders of the world we live in is that it has a beautiful color scheme. We’re looking at the blue sky that contrasts with the green earth. It would be very strange if both the sky and the ground were blue. But we have a nice color scheme with contrast, but not just blue and green colors, unlike red for example, it raises blood pressure. So it is, we have a good color scheme and I think this is a better explanation for designing it. So there is light, but you are also talking about water that day. Yes, water is one of these most important aspects of creation. It has this large oxygen atom and two small hydrogen atoms. It looks simple but water is like a miracle substance. This is great for making life possible. For example, water has an ideal specific heat capacity, which is a measure of how much energy is required to change the temperature of the water. But it also keeps lakes and sea temperatures stable and helps in a balanced weather system, so the water is very well designed. However, this is not the only specific heating capacity. In lakes and oceans, water also freezes up and down because the way ice floats on water is a very unusual property for liquid. So it freezes from top to bottom.
Yes. Wheat would be one exampleof the part of creation which is designed for man, but whichever partof creation I look at, whether it’s birds,or trees, or plants. But on the other hand, it makes sensethat it’s not six seconds, that it’s six days, because God wanted to show manthrough the order of creation, through the process of creation, that the earth and manwere at the center of his purposes in the universe. And I think in addition to that, God sets a wonderful patternof a seven-day week, six days of working, and one day as a day of rest.
I think it’s very humbling that God would build the universe in such a way that it would help the pattern of a working week. And it’s interesting that, wherever you go around the whole world, people have the same seven-day week. But it makes complete sense if the Bible is true. Well, you also see a lot of systems associated with the creation. Let’s kind of walk through this. What is those big system that you see? For example, the first law of thermodynamics says you cannot create or destroy energy. But according to that, you can only have this world around us if there were some God to bring it into being.
So that first law of thermodynamics is completely compatible with six-day creation. And then you have the second law of thermodynamics, which says that entropy and disorder are always increasing in the universe, and therefore you need an almighty power, you required God, to put order we can feel this universe. And interestingly, in the first three days of creation, we see a separation taking place. On the first day, you have the separation of light and darkness, on the second day, you have separation of the waters below and the waters above, on the third day into the universe, because engineers often think of mixing as a disordering process. So it’s interesting that on each day of creation, you see God bringing matter into the universe, and bringing order into the universe.
So, Stuart, these are like workdays that we see God going through in each one of those days. So can you kind of step that through with me, what is he doing on each of those days? So, on day one of creation, we see God creating the foundations of the earth. You start with the foundations. Light, and water, and we now know that those two elements are very fundamental to life itself. we can feel the warmth of the sun on us, it feels nice, but when you think that warmth has traveled millions of miles through space, it’s incredible. So light is very important.
Because light contains all of the colors of the rainbow, and one of the wonderful things about the world we live in is that it has a very ideal color scheme. We see the blue sky, which contrasts with the green land. It’d be very strange if the sky and the land were both blues. But we have this lovely color scheme, where you have contrast, but not only that but blue and green are both restful colors, unlike red, for example, which raises the blood pressure. So it just so happens, we have a good color scheme, and I think it’s a much better explanation to say it’s been designed. So there’s light, but you’re also talking about water on that first day. Yes, water is another one of these really important aspects of creation. It’s got this big oxygen atom and two little hydrogen atoms. Looks simple, but water is like a miracle substance.
It’s so fine-tuned for making life possible. For example, water has an ideal specific heat capacity that’s a measure of how much energy it takes to change the temperature of the water. But also it keeps the temperature of the lakes, and the sea, stable as well, and that helps a stable weather system, so the water’s very well designed. But it’s not just the specific heat capacity. Water also freezes top-down in lakes and seas, because of the way ice floats on water, which is a very unusual property for a liquid to have. So, it freezes from the top down.
