Evolution of a Piano

In January 2011, a mystery puzzled residents of Miami’s Biscayne Bay. You may remember news stories and video footage of a grand piano that suddenly appeared on a sandbar out in the bay. For over a week, police tried to find out how it got there. After some teenagers posted a video on the internet, the mystery was solved. Nicholas Harrington, a local art student, loaded up the piano on his family’s boat with some friends and drove it out to the sandbar. They had a party and set the piano on fire, videotaping the scene. Over the course of the mystery, there were many theories about how the piano had gotten there. But at no time in the discussion was it ever suggested that the piano just appeared on its own gradually over time by random mutation. Its very existence, as well as the burned condition, clearly indicated human intervention. This operation clearly took planning and effort to pull it off. So did the creation of the universe. If I may paraphrase Hebrews 3:4 “For every house [and every piano] is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.”
