Simple, yet ridiculously intricate. Snowflakes are easy to overlook. As a kid, I use to watch the snowflakes land on my glove as I looked with fascination at their complexity. As an adult, I’m baffled as to why water would take such an extraordinary shape. A snowflake is formed when water vapor freezes. But still, the question is “why?” Why would it form like it does?
Think about it. If this world is a product of time, chance, and ordered chaos, what purpose would the beauty and complexity of the snowflake serve? Wouldn’t it be more practical for it simply to freeze into some mangled form and then drop to the ground? And yet that isn’t the case. They freeze into these striking, beautiful, intricately woven, perfectly formed, geometrical forms. Just take a look at some of these snowflakes.
It doesn’t take a scientist to see there is incredible design here, even in the more “simple” snowflakes. If one can’t see the design, it’s because he doesn’t want to see it. This isn’t something that forms by accident. Besides, what drastically improved purpose would it serve anyway?
It’s dumbfounding how our world tries to explain away the evidence to support the Creator. He didn’t just create this life, He designed it with unparalleled beauty and order.
Psalm 104:24 states, “O Lord, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your possessions.” Yes, even the snowflake. If we will look honestly at the evidence around us, there is no other conclusion to come to other than the Lord is the Creator (Romans 1:20).
