Who Made It?

Sir Isaac Newton had a friend who, like himself, was a great scientist — the friend was an infidel, while Newton was a professed Christian, and they often discussed their views concerning God.

Newton had a skillful mechanic make him a replica of our solar system. In the center was a large, gilded ball representing the sun, and revolving in their proper order around this were small balls fixed on the ends of arms of varying lengths, representing the planets. These balls were geared together by cogs and belts, so they moved in perfect harmony when turned by a crank.

One day as Newton sat reading in his study with this mechanism on a large table near him, his infidel friend stepped in. Stepping up to it, he slowly turned the crank, and with undisguised admiration watched the heavenly bodies move in their relative speed in their orbits.

Standing off a few feet, he exclaimed, “My! What an exquisite thing this is! Who made it?”

Without looking up from his book, Newton answered, “Nobody!”

Quickly turning to Newton, the infidel friend said, “Evidently you did not understand my question. I asked you who made this.”

Looking up now, Newton solemnly assured him that nobody made it, but that the aggregation of matter so much admired had just happened to assume the form it was in.

The astonished infidel replied with some heat, “You must think I am a fool! Of course somebody made it. He is a genius and I’d like to know who he is.”

Laying his book aside, Newton arose and laid a hand on his friend’s shoulder. “This thing is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without either a designer or maker! Now tell me by what sort of reasoning do you reach such an incongruous conclusion?”

The infidel was convinced and became a firm believer that “The Lord, he is the God.”
