Der Atlantik Wall Gets Heavy Duty

As we proceed on our traveloguish journey through the Nazi propaganda filmstrip, Der Atlantik Wall, we start to see signs of more heavy duty defenses.  Both of the photos below appear to show obstacles designed to slow or stop vehicles such as tanks or amphibious landing craft.

Is accepting as fact that God created the heavens and the earth strictly a faith alone concept? Is it not logical that an intelligent designer had to be involved in the creation process?

FAITH: Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

I accept the Genesis account to be true because of faith. Why? Because I trust the Bible to be the infallible word of God.

LOGIC: Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen , being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

I accept the words in Romans 1:20 not only by faith, but by logic as well. I can see clearly God's hand in creation.


If you were shopping for a house and you walked into a housing development you had never been to before, and saw a house you wanted to purchase, would you not have to to accept the existence of that house by faith and logic?

FAITH: Since you did not see anyone build the house, you would have to accept by faith it was built by an intelligent designer. How many years do you think it would take for wood, brick and mortar to evolve into a house?

Logic: Since the house is in your sight, is it not logical that someone built the house?

Everyone agrees that billions of years would not be long enough for brick, wood, and mortar to evolve into a house.

To believe the theory of evolution you not only have to contradict logic, but you have to forsake reason.

Those who deny that God exists and is the creator of all things, are truly without excuse!

THE DEFINITION OF FAITH IN THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION: Faith in evolution is to believe that, nothing accidentally created the heavens and the earth over billions of years.
