I realize that God is not on the minds of most people today. It’s on work, money, family, sports, love/marriage, material things, tech gadgets/toys/tools, etc. This commentary is NOT about supporting or upholding a particular religious denomination, organization, or sect.
It’s for those who, from time to time, lift their heads toward a starry night sky and wonder if a Creator-God does exist. And, if a Creator-God does exist, can it be proven?
The ancient sages have pointed out that only a “fool” would say in his heart: “There is no Creator-God’. There is a simple proof for the existence of a Creator-God, which I outline in the following commentary.
And, it is my firm conviction, as it is with many others, that it is the duty of each person to prove for themselves that a Creator-God does exist, and then, to truly search for his will, his ways and to live accordingly.
To begin with, the atheists and many scientists will tell you there is NO Creator-God. They claim the idea of a Creator-God is an ancient “fairy tale”.
And, they will further declare that this ancient-fairy-tale-God was invented by those who sought power and control over their tribe members and others.
The Big Bang Theory __no, I’m not referring to the T.V sit com, which, btw, I haven’t seen. Nearly everyone knows it’s the theory adopted by “scientists” and disseminated in the mass media and in most educational institutions.
These scientists inform us that everything, we see in creation, initially came from a “Big Bang” caused by some kind of explosion. Now please consider this; in your experience, have you seen an explosion?
I’m sure you watched TV and saw bombs fall on cities, villages, etc and saw the results of such explosions. Or perhaps you lit a firecracker and BOOM, a “big bang” occurred. Did that firecracker-explosion and its accompanying “big bang” create “life”, “design”, “order”, “complexity”?
“Big Bangs” do not create anything __ they destroy things. And, there doesn’t necessarily need to be an explosion for a “big bang to destroy things. A massive and thundering noise (Big Bang) can destroy one’s ear drums, windows, etc. The military have to cover their ears when firing off colossal artillery weapons.
In short, our experiences tell us that “big bangs” associated with explosions DO NOT create life, design, order and complexity __ elements which are characteristic of creation. They destroy them!!
Here’s THE SIMPLE PROOF for the existence of a Creator-God.
According to the existing physical laws of science, scientists claim and tell us that:
(1) it always takes something to produce something; and (2) nothing produces nothing;
Since these physical laws are true then it follows that (1) the universe is a “something”, therefore a “something” must have created it __a law of physics. That is, it always takes “something” to produce “something” .
Keep in mind that (2) “nothing produces nothing” __a law of physics. As a lay person, we all understand this to be true.
Here’s the SECOND SIMPLE PROOF: we were taught in science that “matter cannot be created or destroyed” __it can be changed into “energy”.
For example, wood (matter) contains energy. That is, set it on fire and it gives off heat, which is a form of “energy”.
Question: Where does energy come from? It cannot be “created or destroyed”.
Energy is eternal __it’s an eternal “something”. Remember, (1) it “always takes something to create something”.
Since energy is an “eternal something”, it had to come from an “eternal source“ (something)”. That “eternal something/source” we call the CREATOR-GOD!
The Creator is eternal (no beginning or end) __he always was and always will be __he is self-existent.
Even though most scientists accept and know this law to be true, they refuse to acknowledge the “eternal something/source” as an eternal intelligent mind, which believers refer to as a Creator-God.
The willingly ignorant scientists refer to creation as the result of a mindless, random Big Bang! Outrageous to say the least!
In sum, we can observe life, order, complexity and design which are “a something”. Therefore, according to the physical laws of science, the most logical and rational answer is that an eternal, self-existent intelligent being, a CREATOR-GOD, created these elements.
For “it always takes a something to produce a something”, while “a nothing produces nothing”!! So be it!!
