#67 Blueprints for the Empire State Building

I’m sure you know what blueprints are and have seen them from time to time. Even a simple building takes pages and pages of blueprints for every aspect of the construction.

For this article I want to talk about the Empire State Building in New York City and think about its blueprints. Then I want to compare that building to the human body.

No sane person would ever assert that the Empire State Building happened by accident. It clearly was designed. Just imagine all the blueprints that must have been required in order to construct that building. Floor by floor, it was built from the ground up. There must have been thousands and thousands of pages.

Tremendous planning and organization were involved. They had to have plans for putting in the duct work to circulate the air for people to breathe. They needed a system for air conditioning in summer and heating in winter for every floor. They had to supply water for drinking and plumbing pipes for toilets and sinks on every level. They had to run electrical wires for lighting and power. They needed telephone lines throughout. They needed systems for trash removal, elevators and stairs for people to move up and down. There had to be freight elevators for bringing in desks, furniture, and machinery. It was tremendously complicated.


Now ask yourself, which is more complicated, the Empire State Building or the human body.

The human body has similar systems but even more complicated. The body has lungs for breathing, a water distribution system, a plumbing system, a circulation system for nutrients, a nerve system for communication, a heating and cooling system, a waste disposal system, and many others. It has all the component systems of the Empire State Building and then many more.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the Empire State Building does not move around, but the human body can. The Empire State Building does not eat food and digest it. Its energy source is from the outside.

Another thing, the Empire State Building does not grow. It didn’t start off as a little Empire State Building and grow bigger and bigger each year until it reached its current height of 1,250 feet. The human body grows and changes, so if blueprints were to be made for a human body, there would have to be blueprints for the newborn size, a one year old size, a two year old size, all the way up to adult size.

Here’s another big difference. The Empire State Building cannot reproduce. It can’t have babies. Think about that. How complicated would the blueprints have to be for a reproductive system? Would we have to have male and female buildings?

If the Empire State Building absolutely could not come into existence without having really intelligent designers, even if you wait billions upon billions of years, there is no conceivable way that the human body could have come into existence without an intelligent designer.

There must be God.

  1. Excellent article Jim

    The proofs are everywhere are they not ? Polar bear hair is hollow for insulation, their skin is black.
