so your ideas seem somewhat reasonable if you remove emotion and judgment from the equation.
simplified. ALL things are possible with God. (energy/light)
This is my oppinion also , almost verbatim , except that at this time I choose not to define "god" as a devine being , but the personification of
the energy that we all share .
As badkitty says : "I believe by studying nature, science and math we discover God "
We do discover paterns that are not at all random in these sciences , and I find it amazing that mankind has made these observations and
For example : The Fibonacci sequence in mathematics describes the spirals in sunflowers , The "golden ratio" PHI (pronounced fee) is built
into our anatomy and has been used by artist and architects througout the ages in acknowledgement of a possible underlying devine pattern built into
It manifests itself not only in geometry , but our physical beings as well (take your height and devide it by the height of your bellybutton , and
you get PHI .... , the same holds true for many other natural and human proportions as well , look them up , you will be amazed)
The only drawback to these observations (IMO) is the lack of science behind the "faith" of religion and vice-versa . I don't belive science or
religion have enough information to prove or disprove the existence of god(small g intended) but both use these patterns to prove their points.
I think we should repect each others beliefs , as they all have the same underlying patters in their make-up.
Until we can prove or disprove the existance of god , I choose to believe in the energy that bind us all as science , not religion . This energy
has always been here changing forms , being recycled , reformed , and these patterns ALWAYS arise . The creation (big bang or the work of a devine
being) is something of a mystery to science and religion as neither has "proof" of what realy happened and I would not like to debate the existence
of god with anyone of faith .
Simply amazing !! Thank you for bringing this up !!
