The Life is in the Blood

The life of a creature is in its blood, and blood itself is amazingly complex. It works through other intricate processes to keep us alive, a testimony of the engineering of our Creator.

We have seen that the heart is amazingly well designed, and the circulatory system has intricate, amazing development before and after a child's birth. But what about that stuff that the heart is pumping through us? You know, blood. It provides nutrition for our cells, gives oxygen to the brain and other organs, removes waste products. The Bible tells us that "the life of a creature is in the blood" (Lev. 17:11), and it took the blood of Jesus Christ to be a sufficient sacrifice for our sins (Rev. 1:5), so our Creator put special meaning in blood, and he designed it to keep us going through life. To believe all of these intricate processes working together is the product of evolution stretches credulity to the utmost.
After 100 years of development, automobiles still need engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze, and so on. Wouldn’t it be great if just a single multipurpose fluid could be circulated from a central reservoir? Each car part would use only the needed properties of the special fluid, exclude detrimental properties, and then send it back. The new system’s worldwide application would ensure a huge market—and academic honors—for the clever developers.

This lucrative breakthrough, however, would not be pioneering. Just such a brilliant integration of fluid properties to the diverse needs of the human body has already been achieved in our blood—in a self-starting process beginning about 15 days after conception.
