That was probably the simplest and best way I've seen that apologetic defense used. That was a really cool video.
-Peace to you, and grace from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Excellent!!

I downloaded the screen saver also.
Rom 1:17  For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith." (NIV)

Watches are not living organisms. How many watches are self replicating chains of amino acids? Why, none at all. They do not produce enzymes, RNA or the such. They are not repeating, simplistic patterns of chemicals. They are machines, life is not.

cute video, but it seems to assume that all scientists are atheists that are just out to destroy Christianity. it almost makes me NOT want to learn about the wonders of cells and bacteria, because it assumes that then i will turn into an atheist scientist! i actually consider myself a christian scientist, by the way.

i'll be honest, though, i have no idea what 'apologetics' is...so...what is it??
We sit secure in time-honored traditions made
And never wondering when and where the sickle may come
If we don't seek the knowledge to be greater men
When the rain starts coming, going to drown before we get our feet wet

We build our ivory towers to protect us from the flood
A fleet of vessels made of wood so they won't rust
But can we see the bottom of the bottle when we start to drink?
There's fire on the mountain, fire, and it's coming our way

From Dictionary.com:  the branch of theology concerned with the defense or proof of Christianity.

Apologetics is an area of interest that deals with showing evidence for such things as the existence of God and proving the veracity/authenticity of the Bible and the Christian faith.

I have just started reading 'The blind watchmaker' by Dawkins.

Yes life is so much more complex than a simple watch. :)

Amen,  the whole watch maker/ designer argument is probably the worst of all attempts to reduce God to an humanistic equivalent.

I guess I didn't make my point very well then.  People would think it was absurd to think that a watch would be created by chance without skilled handiwork.  Are not all the creatures of the earth even so much more diverse and complicated... than a simple watch?
