fact that the Creator has made man as something special in this universe, with dominion over every other living thing on the earth, just as the Genesis record tells us.

In addition, mankind seems to "have a "built-in” sense of worship towards the Creator. Throughout the whole history of man, we find every tribe of the earth worshiping something. In olden days, and even today, man has worshiped animals, objects and images, his own ancestors, etc. Man wants to worship something. Now when you find a plug, or something that gives you the idea that it should plug into something else, you look around for the socket that the plug will fit. Since man has a built-in sense of worship, this calls for a search for the One whom he should worship. And it is in this search that man has often stopped short to worship idols instead of the Living God. But, for this worship of idols Paul in the book of Romans says mankind is without excuse and will reap the wrath of the Living God.

The realm of reason points us toward the fact of the Living God. This is the beginning of our faith which "then motivates us to a further search. And when we begin to search God meets us with the revelation that is in His book, the Bible. We have reasoned that the earth and the universe and all that is in them had to have been created by a supreme power. God then reveals to us Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Despite all the theories that have been put forward by
