The Mind of Man

Why I Believe in God

Lastly, we might mention the incredible mind of man. Sir Henry Fairfield Osborn, the noted modern anthropologist, said: ‘To my mind, the human brain is the most marvellous and mysterious object in the whole universe.’ Weighing but 1.5 kilograms, it can perform what 500 tons of electrical and electronic equipment cannot do. Containing 10 to 15 billion neurons, each a living unit itself, it performs feats that absolutely boggle the mind. Dr. H. M. Morris said: ‘Therefore men who reject or ignore God do so, not because science or reason requires them to, but purely and simply because they want to!’

The Scripture says, ‘And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind’ (Romans 1:28).
