Is there a God?

How do I know God exists?

As a long standing agnostic, this has been a big question for me. Iíve wobbled back and forth for years on this. Not until I turned the ripe old age of 50 did it start to make sense. Basically the conclusion Iíve come to is: It takes e a much bigger leap of faith to believe there is not a God than to believer there is one. The three things mentioned below are so perfect, I feel it is impossible for them to have just happened by total coincidence.

Everyone probably has their own reasons why they think God (or any supreme power for that matter) exists. Iím going to list my three. I hope youíll chime in with yours

1. Life. Is just too amazing and complicated to be a series of coincidences. Look at live birth, eggs, seeds. Its' amazing how it all works!

What about Darwanism you ask? Yes, animals and plants evolve, but only so much. A wolf might mate with a fox and create a new type of dog. But the wolf can't mate with a bird and create a flying wolf. An increadibly complicated DNA molecule controls that. And is the DNA chain just a random coinsedence? Think about it.


2. Gravity. Scientists can measure it and study it, but they canít explain why itís there. Without gravity, the whole Universe thing just wouldnít work. Someone / thing has to work this puzzle out before any other creating was possible Ė random or otherwise. If gravity were just a little bit stronger or weaker than it is, the whole universe never could have expanded as it is. Think about that one too.

 

3. The Bell Curve. For every tall person, there is a short person. For every genius, thereís an idiot. For every great man, thereís a despicable one. Normal distribution - as the mathematicians call it - has several long pretty equations I totally donít understand. But no math can explain why practically everything in the Universe is not exactly alike. And why we all have special talents and flaws.

Again, itís a needed building block to Ďmake the whole thing workí. We are all attracted to a beautiful place, person, or feeling. But each of us has a different idea of beauty. This is also part of Godís bell curve master plan. There is a beautiful person or job or purpose for everyone. We just need to find it.

 


You probably will come up with your own list. this one works for me. Go sit out under a tree and watch a sunset. Maybe you can add to this list.
