"Nobody Made It"

This is an anecdote I read recently.

Sir Isaac Newton had a replica of our solar system made in miniature. In the centre was the sun with its retinue of planets revolving around it.  A scientist entered Newton's study one day and exclaimed, "My! What an exquisite thing this is!  Who made it?"   "Nobody!" replied Newton to the questioner who was not a believer.  ' You must think I am a fool!  Of course somebody made it and he's a genius."

Laying his book aside, Newton arose and laid a hand on his friend's shoulder and said: "This thing is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you and I know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer or maker; yet you profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken, has come into being without a designer or maker.  Now tell me, by what sort of reasoning do you reach such  incongruous conclusions?"

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

 **1 The heavens declare the glory of God;

       the skies proclaim the work of his hands.              **

**2 Day after day they pour forth speech;

       night after night they display knowledge.    **

詩 篇 19

  1 ( 大 衛 的 詩 , 交 與 伶 長 。 ) 諸 天 述 說 神 的 榮 耀 ; 穹 蒼 傳 揚 他 的 手 段 。  2 這 日 到 那 日 發 出 言 語 ; 這 夜 到 那 夜 傳 出 知 識 。
