I wrestle with the question of whether or not there is a God. It seems like I can prove it both ways and disprove it both ways. Does the universe need a creator to exist? Or is this just an idea inside man-made theology? Man yearns for the eternal. He wants to live forever and be strong forever. He is the only animal as far as we know which builds churches and contemplates the infinite. This in itself may be an indication that immortality resides in a soul of some kind. If there is truth in religion, I accept the premises of the New Testament.

Humans are the crown of creation.

They are a manifestation of nature becoming self aware.


You can have respect without love, but you can't have love without respect.

Love is the evidence of the spiritual realm. You cannot weigh or measure it but it is real. So is God. Love is good evidence for His existence.

Just because God is beyond our ability to fully grasp does not mean we should not try to grasp Him. On the contrary, He is a great motivator for wisdom.

I think you are right lovelove, we should try to ponder who or what is God. When we accept our unknown then could try to think about it. I guess knowledge and science is walking in this way but don't consider religion as same.

That is correct, Babak, religion is not the same. Good point.

I think the reason so many of us seek after a relatonship with God, pondering HIs existance, measuring His Word etc, is because deep down inside of all of us there is a need to reconnect with our creator. I for one, don't think I resemble a primate much at all. So, for me, the idea of evolution just doesn't measure up. So my choice is easy. i was created in the image of the True God. I was made exactly the way I am because God loves me; good, bad and the bad hair days....lol.This works for me because I am content with myself knowing that the creator of the universe and all the contemplated mysteries within it finds me acceptable. There's no competition, no jockeying for position, i am loved for myself and this motivates me to love myself and overflow with love for others. This contributes to peace within myself which hopefully will spill out in peace for all the world.
