In keeping Monday’s scientific, I thought I would start a new series on the amazing design involved with creating a human being in the womb. My husband works in the NICU, and my favorite text to get when he’s at work is “going in for a delivery” because I know he’ll once again be witnessing the miracle of life.
Jesus connected the miracle of salvation with the miracle of childbirth when he was speaking to Nicodemus. It’s a beautiful comparison, we had no part in our first birth, neither do we have a part in our second. Both the creation of our little bodies in our mother’s womb and the creation of a new creature during salvation is evidence of His sovereign power. Glory to God on the highest, He is worthy of all honor, and glory, and praise!
I’m going to write this series a lot like the last series on the Solar System, with points, refutations of evolutionism, and then finally Gods sovereign purpose. Let’s take this slow, and work our way up from the tiny little egg to a 7-8 pound miracle.
The first, and only point, I want to make today (other than introducing the subject) is that a woman’s body is designed to target and destroy foreign entities. The man’s body is same, it’s called our immune system. When a virus makes its way into our body we have defense mechanisms set up to defend ourselves from it. I highly recommend immunology studies to anyone who wants to see the glory of God on the tiniest levels! The ones I’ve attached here are some of my daughter’s favorites.
Ordinarily, our bodies defenses work to our advantage, especially around flu season. During pregnancy, however, the woman’s body sees these tiny cells as foreign and dangerous. It sends the attack cells out just like it would against cancer. How then is this tiny human being that hasn’t even developed a brain yet to defend itself? Its molecular makeup comes equipped with information ready to settle the attack cells down. Imagine these tiny cells saying ‘don’t shoot, we’re on your side’ or ‘relax we’re just here to make her throw up for a few months then it’ll get better’ or even ‘I promise one day we’ll be her whole world’. That’s the Hollywood version, the real action of turning the attack cells away is not well known, some scientists feel the mother has proteins that shut down the cells, others feel the baby does. Either way, the information is there to stop the mother’s immune system from destroying the tiny life growing inside her. My way would make an excellent television series though! *Cue the intense theme music* ‘It’s a dangerous world out there’ Mike Rowe narrating ‘It’s also a dangerous world in here’.
It’s pretty spectacular isn’t it? There is an estimated 37 trillion cells in the human body. All those cells are going to start with the same information on day one, in the womb. Evolutionists claim natural selection is how we’ve gotten where we are, but natural selection can’t occur without first having cells. Cells can’t form without the DNA information to tell it what to be. DNA can’t form without proteins from the cell. It’s far worse then the chicken and the egg conundrum. A person can’t be created without those cells, and no amount of monkeying around with statistics can change that. I have found that Evolutionists do not like to address the origins debate, in recent years they’ve begun saying it’s not apart of evolution (even though it was for the purpose of explaining how we got here, our origins, that evolutionism was first suggested) but they can’t escape this problem, there’s no way to back track all the way to the first cell without running into major roadblocks.
Why did God design the body this way? He knew the end from the beginning, and had all the information within Adams DNA to defend a body against the diseases which would surely arise after the fall. That information included the babies cellular makeup, which can stop a full on attack from the immune system. What a beautiful, miraculous, design! Beloved brethren, God is sovereign, you can take Him at His Word. So be good Bereans, friends, and study to show yourselves approved.
