Who Made The Universe?

Sir Issac Newton, a British scientist. Once had a skillful

mechanic make him a miniature replica of the solar system,

with balls representing the planets geared together by cogs

and belts so as to move in harmony when cranked. Later,

Newton was visited by a scientist friend who did not believe

in God.

One day as Newton sat reading in his study with his

mechanism on a large table near him, his infidel friend

stepped in. Scientist that he was, he recognized at a glance

what was before him. Stepping up to it, he slowly turned the

crank, and with undisguised admiration watched the heavenly

bodies all move in there relative speed in there orbits.

Standing off a few feet he exclaimed, " My, what an exquisite

thing this is! Who made it?".

Without looking up from his book Newton answered,

"Nobody!". Quickly turning to Newton, the infidel said,

"Evidently you did not understand my question. I ask who

made it?". Looking up Newton solemnly assured him that

nobody made it, but that the aggregation of the matter so

much admired had just happened to assume the form it was in.

But the the astonished infidel replied with some heat, "You

must think I am a fool! Of course someone made it, and he is

a genius, and I would like to know who he is.".

Laying his book aside, Newton arose and laid a hand on

his friend's shoulder. "This thing is but a puny imitation

of a much grander system, whose laws you know, and I am not

able to convince you that this mere toy is without designer

and maker; yet you profess to believe that the great original

from which the design is taken has come in to being without

either designer or maker!". Now tell me by what sort of

reasoning do you reach such an incongruous conclusion?
