Does Water Give Life or Does God Give Life?
Water is Valuable to Life
Water Drops on Daisies
Life in the Rain? Life in Ice on Meteors?
Open up any science textbook, and read about the origin of the universe.
Chances are you will read that the Earth is millions or billions of years old, and it all started when it rained upon the life-devoid Earth, covered with rock and volcanoes and liquid hot magma.
So, then, where did life come from?
Did it come from the life-devoid rock and volcanic magma, or did the life come from the rain?
The latest in theories is that ice on a floating meteor brought water to the Earth. You can read that article here.
The truth is that the science community does not have the answer for this. Science cannot tell us where life comes from. Scientists can either hypothesize what they think, or they can believe in what the Bible says: God created the universe.
After all, there is no wiggling around the fact that the word universe in latin means "single spoken sentence." Now why would the word for universe be a single spoken sentence if God had not spoken it in the beginning when he created it?
Excellent question. There is no mention of God in our public school science textbooks.
You can attempt to erase God from textbooks, and even from history books, but the creation around you cries out that it was made by a creator, just as every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder.
The Bible has been confirmed accurate in every archaeological discovery to date. That is incredible! Even Egyptian chariot wheels have been found on the bottom of the Red Sea from when Moses parted it in Exodus.
Hot Liquid Magma Cooling
"Atheism" Makes Perfect Sense
The "Other" Theory of Life Just Doesn't Work
If you don't believe in God, then you probably believe the main existing theory that life evolved over time to what it is today.
But there are many problems with the theory of evolution. One being entropy. The loss of information over time. From what we observe all around us, when you add energy to something, the result is a degradation over time. A hot sun scorching a car over 20 years will harm it, not help it.
The result of entropy over time is chaos, disorder, and disarray. The same happens with genetics. Over time, genetic code loses information. It doesn't get better, or more complicated.
An ameoba, or a single-cell organism that theoretically were to come from rain or water floating in the galaxy, would not evolve into the complex life we see today.
Instead, the real way that life came about, is that God created it. God created man as you see today. Man has not evolved. If anything, you could say that over time man has become weaker, as generations have progressed, and the genetic code has lost information.
Why do you think the theory of evolution is the most modified entry on Wikipedia?
That's because it is always changing, and always morphing as people hypothesize their ideas into this theory, that can never be tested, or proven.
The Bible, on the other hand, can be tested, and can be proven and is compatible with science. It is only bad science (ex. theory of evolution) that conflicts with the Bible.
World's Oldest Tree
Evidence of Creation
Other than by natural observation of the complexity of the universe, there are other reasons that prove the Biblical account of creation.
1. The oldest tree in the world is just over 4,000 years old. This is in line with the time of the flood in the Bible, which has over 270 accounts from ancient civilizations. The article on flood accounts can be read here.
2. Archaeological finds have all confirmed the Bible. That can be read here.
3. Every prophecy in the Bible has either been accurately fulfilled (or yet to be fulfilled). This has not ever happened before from any prophetical book or prophet outside of the Bible. Probability of any man fulfilling 8 prophecies of Christ is explained here.
Lastly, if those were not enough, read 101 Scientific Facts and Foreknowledge From the Bible.
Answer to Hub Title
To answer the Hub title question: Does water give life or does God give life?
The answer is: God.
God created the Earth, and everyone will have to stand before God on the day of Judgement to give account for his life.(see Hebrews 9:27)

- Atheists Losing Their Religion
Atheist have a hard time believing in God, but have no trouble believing that life originated from a liquid hot magma covered Earth. Okay?!?! No matter what higher power you believe in, all people will answer to God on the day of Judgment.
