I have refrained from comment on countless arguments over God and other such matters but it is time someone set the record straight. First and foremost is the argument of the existence of God. Everyone will have his opinion on that and rightly so. It is not for me to tell you if there is a God or not. It is a personal choice. You are the sum of your own experiences and if those have shown you that your belief in a God is the right one then so be it.
Some choose to ignore the many wonders of creation and claim evolution made it all happen. The process of evolution is a fact and it is very evident in nature however for those of you who think you are so clever please note that evolution works by eliminating the weak and replacing it with mutations more favorable to survival. No one to date has ever discovered a species who’s DNA has become more complex from one generation to the next. The rule in nature is to make everything more efficient, more simplified. A rock will only role down the hill never back up it. The genome as it stands may mutate within the laws governing its assembly. These will result in the changes we see but just as a cat will never mutate into a dog neither will the idiots out there suddenly become intelligent.
You may argue that no God is required for the world to exist and everything is just subject to chance. Well that part is actually correct and that’s where you all fall of the wagon. The purpose of God is not to cure you or make you rich. He is not there at your beck and call to serve you. Just as the king doesn’t mine the gold he wears we can not expect God to give us the perfect life we all wish we had. If life on earth was perfect then what would be the point of wanting to go to heaven.
The choice will always be yours as to what path you choose and that choice could be heaven or hell. Most people think that hell is a pit of fire to suffer in for all eternity but if you bother to read up on it you will see that it is not. The concept of hell was created to scare the crap out of people who did not have the capacity to comprehend what hell actually is. There is no greater punishment than the absence of God. Those who make it to heaven will also be in for a surprise as heaven is not a garden with little Angels singing all over the place. It is not even a physical place you can go to.
But for those of you who choose to believe that a God is out there waiting for you I wish you best of luck and maybe we will see each other there someday. Probably not as I don’t think I make the cut. The rest of the crowed who have though so hard not to believe and argue for the lack of evidence as proof that there is no God, they should remember that just like the problem with gravity that can not solved even with the discovery of the Higgs particle (God particle) it doesn’t mean you are no affected by it. You want to claim evolution did it all but then who made the laws that govern how it works?
