This is not an uncommon thought. Even the most profound believer will stop from time to time and question their faith.
Quote from a really good song (and group):
Caedmon's Call: "Prove Me Wrong"
"I think that this is maybe all just a game
one my friends and family all play too
created to harness the young
and give some comfort to the old"
So, is that it is this just a game? Do we all just pretend that God exist because there are things that we can't explain? Well, you can easily come
to this conclusion. It takes a lot less effort to just accept this as a myth. I mean when you look around you see wars, murder, lying, stealing,
But, if you shift your focus just a little you see things differently. Our planet is situated perfectly in our solar system. It has a moon to
stimulate the oceans, which by the way is too big to have this perfect orbit with the earth. At 1/3 the size of the earth, no other planet/satallite
comes close to this ratio. How is it that this was placed there?
Where did the human DNA sequence come from? We are talking about a complicated 30,000+ gene structue with error correction genes built into it to keep
Human DNA Repair Genes
The human genome, like other genomes, encodes information to protect its own integrity
Then we could dive off into more complicated matters. Is it possible to have something from nothing? One could easily argue against the case, but
evolutionist attempt to present this case every day.
Life is something that crawled out of the sludge.
Where did the sludge come from?
From the Big Bang.
Okay, where did the Big Bang come from?
Ummm, the Universe is in an never ending cycle of contraction and expansion.
Ah! now you have painted yourself into a corner. You are talking about infinity now. An infinite past. With little effort it can be shown that if the
past were in fact infinite, then we would never arrive at this point in time. How could we? There is still an infinite number of expansions and
contractions yet to take place before this moment would exist.
So, something/someone outside of all this, ouside of time created this complicated Universe with error-correcting DNA sequences, and complex planetary
orbits. Intelligent design is not that difficult of a conclusion to arrive at.
Now for the real question. WHO
or what is this force. Obvously something even more complex than anything you and I have ever seen or heard of.
To sum things up, by searching and examining various religions I've found that only one shows an example of God trying to reach mankind. *Dare I
mention it?* Christianity. The rest boil down to what have you done to ascend, or what have you done to please the gods? If you do X and Y and Z you
will make it to paradise. Christianity shouts out "You are not good enough!" You must rely on God to help you.
So to answer your question, this very morning I was walking to my car to go to work, and wondered the same thing. Am I sure there is a God? All I had
to do was look around and observe everything around me to see that there was intelligent design. Then I remember what I've read in the Bible.
Good news for you. The size of your faith isn't what's important, its what you put your faith in that matters.
