Practical God

30 November 2012, 07:07

Over the months there were so many writings on religion and God, from Atheist trying their best to prove there is no spiritual being up somewhere looking down on us.

I have to admit, some made good arguments. So I am going to attempt to be very practical and scientific to proof the existences of God. A line or 2 on my background just so you know what my angle is. Studied Nature Conservation and since my student years a nature-oholic by lack of a better word. Keen student on Philosophies and different religions including the occult. Etc etc. In my almost 30 (Age is 49) years of study, so to call it I have gone the full 360, meaning been where atheist are now, believed in Quantum physics etc  ( and still to some degree do). Ok enough. My favorite subjects when studying was Ecology and Physiology. The interaction between living and nonliving things for that matter was and still is just unbelievable. How things (Animals, plants and nonliving things are put together is an all-consuming piece of wonder. Well it’s probably at this point where I am starting to lose some people. But will explain.

Ok back to science and the a few questions I dare any Atheist to answer. Let’s talk science and evolution if you want. Statisticians has calculated that for something to be created out of nothing, talking about the most basic form of life such as an Amoeba, is so small that it’s up to today practically impossible. Scientist has also found proof of a huge energy source (God???)  present at the time of earth’s creation. Ok let me stop there for a moment for these were just teachings from my student days … so cannot really prove it. I did say Practical.

I wonder how many people, atheist included has ever take the time to see the absolute magic in life, meaning the pure genius of the living things and nonliving things. And with see I mean then following.. Not to look at a nice flower and goes ohhhh or ahhhh ..  have you ever studied how the pollen are created, how it get s=distributed (example bees) the function of the leaves, the petals, how water are being transferred from the roots and back. The contend of a single cell, where it gets its energy from, how some of these plants can survive in the harshest of conditions. There are so many things to mention that it will take books. At this point I am still talking about a simple little flower, nothing specialized or extravagant.

 Let’s move over to animals. How the brain of a mammal as example functions. The millions and millions of neurons and nerve synapses in the brain, how a single stimulus gets transferred to the brain and causes a reaction. The pure genius of the composition of an eye, a single finger sensation, the functioning of motoric muscles which reacts on impulses of the brain, smell, taste.  Again this is just a single living organism.

Now start multiplying it by billions (insects, reptiles, birds, mammals etc  etc) , the interaction between all living organisms. The balance that exist between predator and prey, the importance of hateful things like flies and mosquitos. Each one plays a part and has role to play on earth. Between plants and animals. The flow of energy between all living and nonliving things. Hoper you are starting to get the picture…

Ok, let’s take a quantum leap.. Let’s go to the Universe. Endless, If we have so much magic only within our own bodies, and on earth. How much do we have in the universe, and as scientist have discovered, in Universes next to ours… we are but a atom in the Ocean, and without insulting any one, your and my ability to think and understand the size and vastness and effort of all of this. If you do get the picture, then you still want to tell me it all just happened?? Very very impossible. Let me make another statement. Man has not invented anything. If you have made a proper study of nature and the laws of creation you will realize than man has discovered a lot, but it all exist  out there, we have just discovered it.

Looking at the complexity of all, God created it. The creator of everything.  A master Mind, the perfect scientist/engineer/artist etc etc . We as humans will never understand it in the next zillion years. Just think of DNA ..Millions and millions of code. Happended by change. The brain the perfect computer, DNA the perfect pieces of software code etc et.. Getting the picture. Now someone will tell me nothing is perfect. Wrong, you are perfect, with your fat, your moles, bald head etc. The bee that sits on the flower, drinking the nectar and distributing the pollen. The way your brain functions. Perfect. And you want to tell me it all just happened. Bollocks!!

You can throw as many internet sites and literature you wish, but walk out your front door into your garden and start to SEEEEEEE, look and the mirror and perceive.

Question Time dear Atheist.  Since there is no God, or any other spiritual beings (Satan included) pls answer me straight the following

1.       There is no such thing as a God and heaven – Yes/No

2.       There is no Satan and hell – yes / no

3.       Since there is no God and Satan there is no such thing as sin - Yes/No

4.       Which leads to a MASS MURDER BEING JUST AS GOOD OFF  as you who have lived a good life the day he/she dies  - Yes / No

5.       So when you die atheist, where does your soul go, or do you believe it’s like switching of a light. Gone forever or come back in reincarnated form. Which by the way means the soul need to go somewhere before it can come back, which again leads to where does it go?

6.       Strictly speaking there is no such thing as Spiritual; for that immediately would lead to some religion of believe of a better and maybe bigger force and place. Spiritualism is exclusively a form of religion even if it is only to believe in yourselves of the inner god. Things like ghosts and demons etc is all crap.

Anyway like mention, forget about philosophies and books and history. Practical to the point, common sense.
