A Case for Creation - Adam the Ant

       Once upon a time there lived an Ant whose name was Adam. Adam was the best at what he did; he built a great kingdom of luxurious tunnels to dwell in. On the 7th day of every week, food crystals and water drops would fall from the sky. With these blessings Adam had just enough to stay alive and healthy so he could continue building his great kingdom. 
      A long time had passed and Adam grew very lonely, he was the only of his kind and longed for someone to share his kingdom with. He hoped and wished someone would fall from the sky to join him in his land.

         Then  on a certain 7th day when the crystals fell, so came another, a beautiful female who he called Eve. The two Ants eventually learned to love each other and spent the rest of their days in perfect peace and  harmony.                                                                                         The End

This portrayal is really as simple as it gets. The non believer thinks they're the center of their own universe. How could anything else be out there? They refuse to believe in a God because they can't see him.  They need physical hard evidence, they have no faith.  These people couldn't possibly imagine someone so great to control all things.... A simple story that could be understood by a child is all it takes to see the Kingdom of God. Jesus said; "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven".

You see, Adam the ant lived in an ant farm.  When the 7th day came, a boy put sugar and drops of water into his cage. He ate, he drank, but he didn't know where it was coming from. When the female was given to him, he didn't know that he wasn't the only ant in the universe, he only knew what he could see. Could an ant imagine the brain power or capability of a human being? Of course NOT! As a boy can manipulate all things in the world of an ant without him seeing, knowing, or understanding how, so can God in the lives of humans. The typical human is said to use 2% of their brain, imagine if we could use 50% or 100% even, it makes perfect sense thet were created for far beyond what we can see today. It's not our job to try and figure out how God works, its unfathomable to us. You can rest assure he is there and you can trust him.

Psalm 24
Of David. A psalm.
 1 The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it,
       the world, and all who live in it;
 2 for he founded it upon the seas
       and established it upon the waters.

Isaiah 55

8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
       neither are your ways my ways,"
       declares the LORD.

 9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
       so are my ways higher than your ways
       and my thoughts than your thoughts.
