The Teleological argument

I have always been the type of person who wonders why things work they way they do. The more complex the machine is, the more there is to wonder about. The Greek word for the cosmos is kosmos! The word literally means order. 1 Corinthians 14:33 says God is not a God of disorder... with this being the case, we should expect to see order in the things that God created! I mean since He is a God of order, and not disorder we should see this played out in the things of God. Do we??? The Bible makes no bones about it, in Genesis 1:1 the Bible says in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now either we believe this or we do not. Yet is there evidence that supports the Biblical account of creation. The answer is a resounding yes!!! Now keep in mind evolution says that the world in which we live came about by random chance, and dumb luck if you will (even though they would not use that phrase.) Yet is this what we see when we look at the world in which we find ourselves inhabiting? The heavens when you look at the evidence (without presuppositions) do indeed declare the glory of God the Great Creator. The world in which we live is so fine tuned that it is mathematically impossible that it could have arisen from chance. It is impossible for Darwinian evolution to account for the complex system of the universe. 

If one was to drop a nuclear bomb on a plane junkyard, when the dust cleared what would be the odds that a 747 with full working instrumentation would be sitting ready for take off? This is insanity, an explosion does not create kosmos (order) but the very opposite chaos. Well then explain the universe to me that way!! Yet many do. So how can I say that the universe in which we live is so finely tuned?? Well the galaxy which we find ourselves in, is the perfect size in fact if it were too large, the infusion of gas and stars would disturb the suns orbit and ignite too many galactic eruptions, if it were too small insufficient infusion of gas to sustain star formation for long enough time. In layman's terms life could not exist. And on and on I could go yet you can read all the evidence yourself at
