It Flows! It Floats! It Flies! – Wonderful Water and Its Amazing Abilities!
Job 38:28-30 “Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew? Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.” What does your grocery cart look like? I would suppose that something in your grocery cart contains vitamins and minerals. From breakfast cereal to vegetables to the meat we put on our table, each of these food items contains some. We often supplement these naturally occurring elements with a tablet or liquid form. Life requires a certain amount of vitamins and minerals, at minimum, to survive, and at best, to thrive. But have you ever considered from where these vitamins and minerals come?
Most probably get their vitamins and minerals from H.E.B., Wal-Mart, or some nutrition store. They arrive there by truck via a manufacturer. Where does the manufacturer get these items? Minerals come from the earth. Vitamins are extracted from living things that absorb and compound minerals with organic material. But how do minerals get transported, naturally, to the living things that need them?
The transport system for minerals is water. Life requires minerals, but if there were no water on the planet, life would have no mechanism by which to obtain and process those minerals. Water is needed to erode minerals out of the earth and transport them to the areas where living things can take advantage of them. Water is also needed within those living things as a solution by which the minerals may be assimilated.
That water, however, cannot be in just any form. Planets where water exists in only one state cannot provide an environment conducive to the sustenance of life. Water needs to be able to flow, float, and fly for life to exist. It just so happens (as by design) that the temperature of the earth is perfectly suited for water to be found in all three states: solid, liquid, and gas.
Ecclesiastes 1:7 “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”
Each of these states is helpful to life in providing the necessary transportation of minerals. In its liquid state, water flows, bringing minerals from the mountains to the valleys and oceans where life lives. In its solid state, water floats on the top of rivers, lakes, and the ocean giving space for the living things underneath to survive instead of crushing them with its weight. In its vaporous form, water flies across the skies moving from the oceans back to the land and restarting the cycle all over again.
When we look at our artificial transportation systems that run from the manufacturers to the distributors and from the distributors to the retailers, we wouldn’t even begin to suggest that such a system was not designed. Yet how is it that evolutionists can look at water, the greatest transport system the Universe has to offer, and suggest that it is not part of a grand design? The evidence is simply too great. Of all the elements, only water fits the bill; no other element can take its place and its unique existence in three forms at just the right temperature on earth defies the odds of its presence simply by chance.
