Isaiah 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?
Have you ever stopped to think how ridiculous it is to question God? It isn't that these scientific data aren't interesting - they are. It isn't that we don't have a mandate to master the earth and subdue it - which must include measuring it, or at least trying to - because we have. The ridiculous part is the attitude we have to the whole thing, the way we go about it. The more we find out, the more obvious it becomes that it is designed and made exactly so. The more we do the arithmetic, the shorter the odds become that it happened by chance.
Speaking originally to the doubters and naysayers of his day, Isaiah puts his finger on the nub of the problem. Even if you can offer an explanation of how else it might have happened, have you done it? Can you do it? In a million years?
The words are still just as relevant today. Just who do you think you are, God says to man. Could you do this; were you around when I did it? Then get over it and let's talk!
