Structure Demands a Builder
You know that structure requires someone to structure it. The rectangular solids like a brick require an equal spacing of the piles require a hand to space them in such a structure, neat piles require someone to pile them neatly. The bricks demand a brick maker who gave them all their uniform rectangular solid shape. The spacing of the brick piles ten feet apart would demand a mind to measure and space them. Someone stacked the neat piles. Structure demands a builder. The structured trail demands a builder who made this trail.
Numbers demand a God-given mind
Furthermore, we realize that someone had to count out the bricks in order for each pile. Numerical sequence demands a mind that can count (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) and that is rational and not random. You would know that someone had been there! Such bricks and their arrangement in sequences and patterns could NOT have evolved from the mindless process known as the THEORY of evolution! Only a fool could be convinced they just happened into that numerical configuration over millions of years.
The Atomic Chart
Most all of the civilized world today receives some instruction on the structure of matter, in many cases even before high school. In many large dictionaries under the word "element,” you will find a page showing the Atomic Elements. This chart shows what puts the world together. The chart, called the Periodic Table of the Elements, shows each element and its atomic number. If you have an advanced science book, a chemistry book, or physics book, it should also have a Periodic Chart.
Hydrogen, the smallest of all atoms, is atomic number 1. Its symbol is H. You will see in the upper part of the Periodic Chart a box with an H and a 1 in it. This is the symbol for this simplest atom, hydrogen, which has one proton in the nucleus (center) and one electron orbiting the nucleus. It is atomic number 1: 1 proton, 1 electron.
In analogy, let us consider a proton like earth and the electron like the moon in orbit around it. The atomic number is always the number of protons (earths) in the nucleus. As you go across the chart to the upper right, the next box has "He" and 2 in it. "He" is the symbol for Helium. Helium has 2 protons in the nucleus and 2 electrons orbiting. Therefore, number two goes to Helium. We could think of the protons as stuck together in the nucleus. In our analogy, this would be as two earths stuck together like a "peanut cluster" and electrons in orbit like two separate moons around the two-earth cluster.
As we continue through the chart, we see Lithium, Li, has an atomic number of 3, for it has three protons in the nucleus and 3 electrons in orbit. Therefore, it is with Beryllium, symbol Be, atomic number 4 with four protons in a peanut-like cluster nucleus and 4 four moon-like electrons in orbit.
Matter in its elemental form is structured and numbered. Number after number has its atom with that number of protons in the nucleus and that number of electrons orbiting them. Aluminum is number 13 (it is lightweight), Lead (Pb) is number 82, and Uranium is 92, as some examples. In addition, of course the atoms are not living, so how can they have evolved by any stretch of the imagination.
A further study of atoms will find even more detail of the structural attributes of the Designer (electrons in certain structured orbit levels, a discussion of which is beyond the scope of this article).
The Creator God left a trail in his creation work, structured and numbered, undeniable except by the fool. No wonder scripture declares of those who would deny that God does exist:
"The FOOL has said in his heart, 'There is no God.'" (Psalm 53:1, NKJV)
Atheists may say God does not exist and even try to taunt him to show himself. However, God does not answer their demands. Why he is hiding away and letting us live our lives with or without him is part of what the scripture calls:
". . . the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations . . ." (Colossians 1:26)
This mystery explains why God is not answering much of the world now.
