Has anyone else observed that nothing is quite right?

The earth isn't a perfect globe. It bulges in the middle.

The moon is heavier on one side. That's why the same side faces earth all the time.

The earth's path around the sun is not a perfect circle. It's actually a bit irregular.

There is no numerical correlation between a day (the time it takes the earth to make one rotation) which we arbitrarily divide into 24 hours, and a year (the time it takes the earth to make one complete revolution of the sun. In a perfectly designed system matching days to years would seem more efficient.

The paths of the planets do not line up on an even plane.

The earth wobbles through space.

There’s so much chaos in the universe that, design, though obvious, seems to be the exception, rather than the rule.

I believe that God is still creating. He never stopped. The evidence of that is all around us.
