Through my insatiable search for the truth I have repeatedly come across the same questions and concerns from many people regarding the existence of
God. In my search I have found that these seemingly paradoxical instances are actually tunnels to the greatest treasure rooms of knowledge regarding
our self-realization and our relation to all things. I will take my best shot at answering some commonly asked questions regarding God's existence
1) If God exists, why do bad things happen (especially to good people)?
Many have heard that the most superficial answer is that bad things happen due to the sinful decisions of people. This generic answer is right, but
there is more depth to it. The next argument is usually "well what about children born with birth defects? They have made no decisions yet are born
with apparently bad things instilled in them". There is an answer to this in the Old Testament, and it is referred to as 'the sins of our fathers'.
Essentially, the burden of sin that was accumulated by our parents is passed on to the children, resulting in various troubles for the children to
bear. This may seem unfair, but know that you are a continuation of your familial line, and it is your duty to honor your parents and eliminate these
genetic defects through the pursuit of peace and truth.
The science of how familial memory is passed on has recently emerged. In a mind-boggling mechanism known as 'epigenetic inheritance', we are given
the overarching condition of our parents in what is known as the 'epigenome'. The epigenome is simply how our genes are being expressed - some being
expressed higher and others being expressed lower. This symphony of genetic expression results in a particular biophysiological expression that gets
passed on from our parents. They proved this phenomenon in mice who were able to solve a drowning maze faster each successive generation due to the
genetically imprinted memory of their parents. It was also proven that the fears of parents are passed down at least two generations
It is also important to note that trials make people stronger. Sometimes we are not necessarily given something bad because we deserve it, but instead
we are given a cross to bear so that through our perseverance we may help others along their path.
2) If God exists, why doesn't he give us proof?
The proof is everywhere. All biological systems act according to such precise physical laws that allow our existence to continue. This alone shows
this system was designed for life to exist (especially under the Love of God's Will). Biological systems also arrange according to pi and phi. Pi and
phi are irrational numbers that have an infinitude of data present in them because they go on infinitely without a predictably repeated decimal
sequence. It is also no coincidence that the planets and stars have been orbiting at such clockwork precision that we have not noticed any stray from
orbit in the past known history. In short, logical creatures must have come from a logical Creator. To think logical creatures came from illogical
random chance requires much more faith, and is remarkably less likely to be the scenario even from the most pragmatic assessment of reality.
We were also given the sign of Christ. A man came in the name of God through a miraculous conception. He came and defeated death - that which we are
all apparently subject to - and told us to love each other and have hope knowing that we are the very children of the Most High Being and Founder of
the entire Universe. Given these undeniable truths, we are left now to commune with God according to our own free will, which is the fulfilment of our
3) The Bible has many errors, therefore God is far from infallible
This would take many forums to comprehensively defend the Biblical narrative, but I assure the readers that everything checks out, it is only a matter
of assessing history and the scientific world from an unbiased lens. We were taught the secular anti-Christ perspective of science which wishes to
claim we are mutant monkeys that originated from pong goo that came to be through one big cosmic accident. This misconception has countless holes in
its logic. For those who care about the details, I have compiled a lot of data showing that the Biblical worldview still remains valid:
demons were referring to viruses
the firmament is a reference to the ionized water in the ionosphere
simple examples that show that evolution could not have happened through random chance
, the historicity of the global flood
the impossibiltiy of life coming to be by random chance
humans co-existed with dinosaurs (nail in the coffin for evolutionary theory)
We also should remember that the Jewish scribes had no intent to make an impression on anyone, they were simply writing the circumstances that
happened to them. The fact that they recount their own downfalls shows they were not biased in their writings. Remarkably enough, the Bible has a
lineage from Jesus all the way back too Adam. There were also many Jews at the time of Jesus who could trace their lineage back to Abraham. It is not
just the Hebrews who claim they can trace their lineage back to a primordial couple who were the manifestation of Divine Creation. The Egyptians also
have a historical record of Adam (who they call Atum [phonetically pronounced the same as Adam]) who also had a child named Seth.
The Greeks also recounted this same event, they called Adam Zeus:
But the other gods, at home in Zeus’s halls,
met for full assembly there, and among them now (Zeus Spoke)
who was the father of men and gods.
The Greeks, Egyptians, and Hebrews all recount the same history, but their perception of these historical figures are different. The Hebrews saw Seth
the nomadic wanderer as emulating the ways of God, whereas the Egyptians saw Seth as a chaotic wanderer who refused to join the progress of the cities
that were built by Cain and company. The Sumerians assessed the same dilemma - should we be nomadic or stay sedentary and farm the land? They recorded
this pivotal point in "the debate between sheep and grain". Sheep embodied the nomadic life, whereas grain embodied the agricultural revolution
(which apparently occurred very early in human history). Surely enough, The Sumerians said grain was better because they were beginning to embrace the
sedentary lifestyle of the agricultural revolution. This was the same debate that faced Abel vs. Cain -God accepted Abel's sacrifice ( a sheep, again
resembling the nomad lifestyle) and denied Cain's sacrifice (agricultural crops, resembling the agricultural revolution).
God always promoted the nomadic lifestyle, because the agricultural revolution inevitably would become the industrial revolution and would feed the
Babylonian system all the more. The enslavement of Egypt epitomizes this detriment
