The article linked to the picture below goes into detail on how the physical body is built when starting with just a few cells. The article describes this process as "the astonishing innerworkings of how embryos are physically constructed". The article describes the process by stating "Cells coordinate by exchanging biochemical signals, but they also hold to and push on each other to build the body structures we need to live, such as the eyes, lungs and heart. And, as it turns out, sculpting the embryo is not far from glass molding or 3D printing". The study goes on to "reveal that cell collectives switch from fluid to solid states in a controlled manner to build the vertebrate embryo, in a way similar to how we mold glass into vases or 3D print our favorite items. Or, if you like, we 3D print ourselves, from the inside.
How did this Advanced Construction Process come about?
Everyone would agree that this process is driven by genetic programming in the cells, but the question is how did the genetic programming that drives this "astonishing" process come to be? It is undeniably complex! More complex than anything humans have been able to program by far! One theory states this came about over millions of years through chance mutations. Both mathematical analysis, observations on how mutations destroy and degrade and never create, and of course common sense all point to this being impossible. The other theory is that this very astonishing complex system came about from an astonishingly intelligent creator.
It is interesting that the Bible equates us to being unformed in a mother's womb and we are molded and stitched together by His hand. While the strictest of observation would show that indeed we are molded (as this article indicates) and stitched (DNA double helix) together by an amazing natural process, who was the one that created and programmed this process? It was God!
Isaiah 64:8 states, "But now, O Lord, You are out Father; we are the clay, and You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand".
Psalm 139:13 states, "For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb"
Why does it matter?
It should be comforting to every one of us that we were created by God and He loves us as our Father. While this life can be difficult, He has promised a restored Earth without death, disease or suffering so long as we accept His gift to us. This is the acceptance that Christ took the punishment we deserve for the sins we committed.
