One of the most basic questions every person is confronted with is, “Where did I come from?” A sense that the universe and our world was designed is an intuitive awareness that is found in virtually all cultures around the world. Colossians 1:16 says, “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through Him and for Him.” Students in our schools, however, are taught that chance and time brought about this highly complex world we live in.
