Do you believe in God?
Seriously, do you believe in God?
Do you believe someone created this extraordinary, incredible, ridiculously amazing world?
There are millions of different theories. If people refer to the Big Bang theory and believe that’s what created the universe then think about this:
Out of nothing comes nothing.
For example, take an empty fish bowl. Put it on your dresser and keep it there for the rest of your life. I guarantee you that by the end of your precious life, nothing will be in it.
Someone or something would have to put objects in the fish bowl for something to occur.
Now, how about this:
I know what will happen if I take hundreds of mice and put them in a big circle with a lot of cheese on one end. They will all scurry and eventually find their way to the cheese. It may take longer for some. Some may die in the process. Some will get sidetracked, but most of the mice will find the cheese somehow.
They wouldn’t know if they were going to find the cheese during their journey.
And, as I’m standing over my little pretend experiment, I’d know where they’d end up. They wouldn’t.
The fact that I am able to take my thoughts and ideas and then process them to make my fingers press buttons on a keyboard that trigger a signal to transmit that touch so it appears on my screen so you can then read it and interpret it in your mind to form your own ideas and beliefs is mind boggling to me.
The human body is by far the most complex system on this planet. The systems, enterprises, ideas and creations that the human body has created are almost as remarkable.
Now, if I took a piece of red metal, in a shape of an octagon with the word STOP in the middle, a green metal post, a post hole digger and a few screws and scattered them on the street what would happen?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing would happen. Someone has to fasten the sign onto the post with the screws and dig a hole into the ground. I’d say the chance of the stop sign assembling itself and digging a hole for it is virtually zero.
All of that being written, all religions aside, wouldn’t it be crazy to think that someone or something didn’t create this?
Do you ever think what is this? What are we? What is this world? What is the purpose of life? Is someone or something making you sit at your computer right now and read these words? These words, too. And this.
I always do. It fascinates me. I’m a very curious person.
I certainly will not go through life and not question things.
I believe something or someone created this. Whether that idea is true or not is not for me to determine. Nor, is it for me to determine what you should believe.
But if God or someone/something is smart enough to do everything he has done already and take into consideration all of the analogies and ideas expressed above, do you think he knows what’s going to happen to us?
Destiny is a crazy thought.
Do you believe that everything that’s going to happen in your life is predetermined?
Is everything that happens to us inevitable? Does God want us to use our strengths and abilities? And, if we don’t, will he teach us a lesson?
I believe every single person on this planet has a Michael Jordan inside them. It just takes some longer than others to figure out what it is. Did God purposefully do this? Was this predetermined? Does he know what you are going to be doing in 5 years? In ten minutes? Tomorrow?
Are you meant to be reading this…right now?
Am I supposed to be writing this…right now?
I’d really love to hear you thoughts on this.
Maybe, just maybe, you are supposed to read this and comment on it…right now.
