No… I’m not talking about when Bunny and I made a baby.
Without being greatly versed in scientific, scriptural or spiritual jargon regarding the creation of the universe… I’d like to make my stand on what I believe.
Quite simply… scientists and atheists can make all the arguments they want about how the world was created. Something like… *BANG* the Universe started in a black hole and spit out other little galaxies which spit other little planets, then one celled organisms turned into fish which turned into birds which turned into dinosaurs which turned into monkeys which turned into humans who then invented the wheel and then the iPhone (or something along those lines) COMPLETELY BY CHANCE!!
I can see and understand how maybe… just maybe… all the components to make the tiniest one celled organism could all come together in vast space to create what looks like or appears to be a cell… never mind a human being. But what creates life? What is the magic spark that suddenly springs this cell into life? What about the emotions we exhibit… the sparks that travel between the synapses in our brain… the thoughts we hold in our mind. Or even the human eye in and of itself is so ridiculously complex that somehow it could come to pass completely by chance is mind boggling to me! How did these come to be?
There has to be an intelligent creator: God.
To think that life was created out of nothingness completely by chance… seems more insane to me than the thought from atheists that God is a fairy tale like Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny.
Unfortunately, I cannot claim to be a great theological mind or claim that I’ve been studying with great evolutionary scientists but I know that I’m not stupid. I know that if I was greeted by the sneers of a group of blue blood atheists who thought I was an unintelligent Neanderthal who mystically warped up their evolutionary chain… I quite simply wouldn’t care. I know my stance is completely viable. I would, however, sadly recognize that they are a product of where this World is going: the shitter. Yes… I said it: the shitter.
I guess the perfect reality is Heaven. Something the Earth is far from.
The Earth is not free from the stain of sin… thus it is to be expected from us, whom free will was given through God’s unwavering love, we are going to screw up… and have screwed up quite royally it appears.
Myself included. I was born with original sin.
I tend to wallow in my own self pity at the mistakes I’ve made and continue to make.
What makes me truly sad though is the thought of a dying atheist. What’s their take? Where do they go? Aside from the fact that death beds are not fun places to in the first place… I’m sure there’s a lot of doubt around the death bed of an atheist. I’m sure many questions come to mind before they slip away that none of us will ever know.
“Maybe I should have given that ‘God’ thing a shot.”
That’s purely speculation… but I can’t believe they wouldn’t hope there wasn’t something else after this life is over.
I don’t claim to know all the answers, or claim to be the Earth’s most perfect human and I certainly don’t want to be high and mighty. What I am certain of though… is that the supernatural force of God is there and although we can’t physically see it with our eyes we are trusting too much on what feeds our eyes that will only be here for a short time. When we are gone, our spirit and soul will still be alive and well… and what are we doing to feed it and keep it alive?
The answer for many people is “nothing”. They feed what makes them happy for a short time: money, clothes, cars, etc.
Perhaps if we want proof that God indeed does truly exist… we need to go back to feeding our souls. Something atheists quit doing long ago.
I struggle quite often… wondering where God is. But I know… whether you believe in Him or not… comparing us to God is a bit like comparing the intelligence of Albert Einstein to the intelligence of a crumpled up piece of scotch tape. I can’t even remotely pretend to know what’s going on or why I can’t “see” Him.
What I do know though, is that I need to do what He taught in the Gospel. It is a proven book of love, compassion and self-sacrifice. Even the most hardened atheist can see that.
If your life is full of what He taught and full of love, compassion and self-sacrifice… you won’t need to “see” Him… but you’ll feel Him in your soul: the very mode of transportation to your journey into eternal life with Him.
God is Love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in Him. 1st John 4:16
*BANG*… it all makes sense to me now…
