Wonders of Creation
Humans are a Special Creation
God’s Wondrous Works
Life does not come from non-life and there has never been a scientific experiment that has proved otherwise. And there never will be.
Modern genetics and molecular biology have provided ample evidence of the highly complex and interdependent relationships between DNA, RNA, and protein. These findings imply that life depends on having all these elements simultaneously. Thus, life could never have come about spontaneously by chance.
The only reasonable explanation is that a supremely intelligent Creator coded the instructions in DNA and simultaneously made the fully formed proteins. The interaction between them was so well devised that once begun, this process would ensure that proteins would continue to copy DNA to make more genes, while other proteins would decode genes to make more proteins.
For the first life-form to continue, it had to be able to reproduce, to make copies of itself. One professor of chemistry said that among the things needed would be
(1) a protective membrane,
(2) the ability to get and process energy,
(3) information in the genes, and
(4) the ability to make copies of that information.
“One is struck by the complexity of even the simplest form of life.”

Scientists have concluded the neuron is a communications device.
All of these things are oversimplified by various images used in education.
The soul is a result of brain/whole body communication.
We are designed a certain way because our Father is excellent.
Two Sets of Nerves
About us imperfect humans. We are born and have learned behaviors. We have intellect far above the animals’ instinctive wisdom. We also have two sets of nerves unlike animals.
Humans are a special creation.
Humans are endowed with a special nervous system to sense love and tenderness, reports the German scientific journal Bild der Wissenschaft. Swedish scientists discovered that a woman who had lost her main touch receptors still felt a pleasant sensation when stroked with a soft paintbrush. This sense of pleasure, they found, was evoked by a second nerve network in the skin, consisting of slow-conducting fibers called tactile C fibers. The network only responds to a gentle touch and activates those brain areas dealing with emotions. Commenting on why humans might have two different sets of nerves, the International Herald Tribune states: “The slow fibers function from the earliest hours of life, perhaps even in the womb, while the fast fibers develop slowly after birth. Newborns might be able to feel the love in a parent’s touch before they can feel the touch itself.”
One important reason is so we can have emotional love with our mate in complete privacy. (Complete privacy means God is not watching) The Bible is explicit about what not to do sexually. Nothing else is required but the Bible’s clear instructions. (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
Tonsils and Appendix
It has been scientifically proven that both the Tonsils and Appendix are used by the body’s immune system. Click the included PDF links to read about it. They should not be casually removed. Every effort should be made to retain these organs. Every single part of the human body is needed to function perfectly but not at this time due to imperfection passed on from the first created man, Adam. Romans 5:12 Even if every single item in the human body was corrected to 100%, without holy spirit the lifespan would not be eternal. It would be a maximum of just under 1000 years, like Adam and Eve after they sinned.
Psalms 104:29 When you hide your face, they are disturbed. If you take away their spirit, they die and return to the dust.
That is what happened to Adam and Eve, they returned to the dust.
Holy spirit is needed to live forever and the body will never wear out.
The Difference Between Man and Animals
When man was created, he was made in God’s image, according to his likeness. (Ge 1:26, 27) This, of course, did not mean physical image or appearance, for God is a Spirit, and man is flesh. (Ge 6:3; Joh 4:24) It meant that man, different from the “unreasoning animals” (2Pe 2:12), had reasoning power; he had attributes like those of God, such as love, a sense of justice, wisdom, and power. (Compare Col 3:10.) He had the ability to understand why he existed and his Creator’s purpose toward him. Hence he, unlike the animals, was given the capacity for spirituality. He could appreciate and worship his Creator. This capacity created a need in Adam. He needed more than literal food; he had to have spiritual sustenance; his spirituality had to be exercised for his mental and physical welfare.
Consequently, apart from Yahweh God and his spiritual provisions there can be no indefinite continuance of life. As to living forever, Jesus said: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.”—Joh 17:3.
We are not Creationists
Use your reasoning power.
Was all physical creation accomplished in just six days sometime within the past 6,000 to 10,000 years?
The facts disagree with such a conclusion: (1) Light from the Andromeda nebula can be seen on a clear night in the northern hemisphere. It takes about 2,000,000 years for that light to reach the earth, indicating that the universe must be at least millions of years old. (2) End products of radioactive decay in rocks in the earth testify that some rock formations have been undisturbed for billions of years.
Genesis 1:3-31 is not discussing the original creation of matter or of the heavenly bodies. It describes the preparation of the already existing earth for human habitation. This included creation of the basic kinds of vegetation, marine life, flying creatures, land animals, and the first human pair. All of this is said to have been done within a period of six “days.” However, the Hebrew word translated “day” has a variety of meanings, including ‘a long time; the time covering an extraordinary event.’ (Old Testament Word Studies, Grand Rapids, Mich.; 1978, W. Wilson, p. 109) The term used allows for the thought that each “day” could have been thousands of years in length.
Use the word “epochs” for creative days.
Genesis 1:26-27 26 Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.” 27 And God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.
The meaning of Genesis 1:26
Let “us” make man “in our image”. God and the Master Worker. We can only surmise that Yahweh designed the human body and gave the Master Worker all of the information to build the body. It was a male person who looked like the people in Heaven but with a physical body not a spirit body.
The meaning of Genesis 1:27
Genesis 1:27 changes from “in our image” to “in his image”. How did God create the man in his image then? He gave the man holy spirit which gave him God’s qualities. Truly, in his image.
The woman was created from the genetic material of one of the man’s ribs. She also was given holy spirit and therefore had God’s qualities but did not resemble him or the Master Worker.
Genesis 2:21,22 22 And Yahweh God built the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman, and he brought her to the man.
