How can you say there is no evidence of a creator?

by Shmair Face:

And no miraculous happenings being seen today?? I’m seriously dumbfounded by this. Look around you… The planets and stars are hanging upon nothing – yet they are staying fixed in a never changing orbit. There is a burning ball of energy and heat in the sky – at the perfect distance from earth in order for life to exist. If a human was able to take fire and make a ball out of it and make it float in the sky period you would say it’s magic or something!
If this can be explained only by absence of gravity and by magnetic force , then why when humans and satellites go out into space do they float all over the place?

If you came to beautifully organized and manicured garden out in the middle of nowhere, would you really conclude that it was just naturally that way, not that someone was taking care of it and designed the layout?

What about how the body heals itself. Though it’s a slow process, if a human touched a wound and it healed instantly you would say it’s a supernatural ability. But our body’s ability to heal itself over time isn’t?

The only reason these phenomenons don’t seem miraculous is because we were raised seeing them. But lets say all your life the ocean was flat and no waves ever formed. Then suddenly one day they started forming…. Wouldn’t you wonder who caused that?

You don’t have to answer all my questions, just, in a nutshell, how can you say these aren’t supernatural powers?
1 Corinthians 1:26 For you behold his calling of you, brothers, that not many wise in a fleshly way were called, not many powerful, not many of noble birth; 27 but God chose the foolish things of the world, that he might put the wise men to shame; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put the strong things to shame; 28 and God chose the ignoble things of the world and the things looked down upon, the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are, 29 in order that no flesh might boast in the sight of God.

Yep, you’re right…I’m pretty dumb. But God still values me.
1 Corinthians 3:18-20 – “Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God…”

1 Corinthians 8:1b, 2- “knowledge makes people feel important (puffs you up), but love strengthens others (builds others up). Anyone who claims to know all the answers doesn’t really know very much. But the person who loves God is the one whom God recognizes.”
