Introduction

Imagine a machine comprised of over 10 trillion (10,000,000,000,000) parts.  Each of those 10+ trillion parts is made up of 100’s of smaller parts including its own mini processor.  The 10+ trillion parts are intricately woven into larger collective groups and those collective groups into even larger collective systems and these systems into one well designed sophisticated machine that has a built in repair mechanism.  All of the systems and their various parts are run by a central processor capable of millions of interactions at the same time.

This machine not only functions internally to maintain itself but is also capable of responding to and altering its external environment.  It can communicate and interact with numerous other similar machines.  This machine can process random thoughts and actions as well as organized and coordinated ones.  More amazing yet is that this machine is capable of aesthetic creations such as music, poetry, novels, paintings, sculptures and various other forms of artwork.

However the most unique and important aspects of this machine involve self awareness and the awareness of who created it.  Yes, there are other machines that may have a sense of self awareness, but none of those are conscious of its origins.

The human body is by far the most complex and sophisticate thing – living or machine – ever created.  There are so many aspects of the human body that we have yet to discover and understand them all.  No man made machine comes close to the overall complexity or efficiency of the human body.

Yet evolutionists want you to believe this complexity and sophistication is the process of millions of years of random processes built upon mistakes or mutations.  In a universe where everything has the tendency to run down, decay, go from complex to simple, from order to disorder, we are suppose to believe that living organisms did the exact opposite and went from simple to complex.

Last week we concluded the series on the Simple Cell.  This week we want to introduce the new series on the amazingly designed human body.  Starting next week we will look at the various systems  – skeletal, circulatory, musculature, nervous, endocrine, digestive, reproductive, respiratory,  integument, immune, lymphatic, urinary, endocannabinoid, and vestibular.  Within those systems we will look at the various organs, tissues and specialized cells that play key roles.

As we progress through this series, our goal is to show the overwhelming evidence that man was created by an all knowing and intelligent designer God.  The theme for this series is taken from Psalm 139:13-15:

For you formed my inward parts:
You knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

When does life begin?

Take a journey from conception to birth with Dr. David Menton, former professor of anatomy at the prestigious Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Menton provides both a biblical and scientific answer to the question of when life begins.

Taken from one of Dr. Menton’s lectures, this video will reveal the wondrous design of the womb along with the numerous miracles involved along every step of the development of the unborn child.

Following the tragic starvation induced death of Terry Schiavo, Dr. Menton clearly shows the value and sanctity of human life.

With grace and sensitivity Dr. Menton concludes with a salvation message and explanation of the second birth process as described in John 3.
