I am constantly amazed by the fact that the Bible, written so long ago, is still relevant today. In Matthew 24:3, Jesus tells us, “Heaven and earth will pass away but My words shall not pass away.” Again in Isaiah 40:8, God assures us, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of God stands forever.” The Bible has stood the test of time. The words of wisdom found in Scriptures of old still hold true today. The truths and principles therein are as applicable to our lives as they were to the lives of Abraham, David and the Apostle Paul. History has also proven God’s Word to be true. As far as researchers have been able to determine, the events, people and places in the Bible are accurate. For example, when a debate arose many years ago over the book of Acts, the Roman historian Sherwin White wrote, “The facts authenticating the book of Acts are overwhelming. Any attempts to disprove its historicity even in matters of detail are absurd.” Additionally, archaeology has proven Scripture to be true. The great archaeologist William Albright said, “All radical schools in New Testament criticism which have existed in the past or the present are pre-archaeological and are quite antiquated today.” In other words, all archaeological evidence that continues to unfold only supports Scripture as accurate and true. If you are interested in reading more about the existing archaeological evidence supporting the reliability of the Bible, I would urge you to read Josh McDowell’s book, A Ready Defense.In matters of science, the Bible speaks in simple, yet correct terms that avoid absurdities. For example, some non-biblical accounts of creation border on the ridiculous, whereas the Bible is nowhere guilty of this. The Babylonian creation myth, for instance, developed during pre-scientific times, suggests the crude proposition that the earth was formed from a dismembered part of one of the gods after a fight occurred between them in heaven. The biblical narrative, on the other hand, is concise, sensible and above all, accurate. www.starwire.com...

Well if God is Everything, and I'm a part of Everything, then that means we are all a part of God.
Of course, this all depends on the first assumption being correct.
Which it is not.
We are not God.
