Who Knew? Nobody knew!

Flipping through the television channels, I came across this 'bloke' narrating a science program about nature and Earth. His voice and elocution reminded me, very much, of that other 'bloke' who wants to sell you Oxyclean. In other words, a British salesman. The repugnant aspect of his delivery is the matter-of-fact tone with which he spoke. Like the Darwinian theories' ludicrous notions or evolution, these so-called scientific presentations are nothing more than speculation and fantasy designed to spin a web of false notions and total misunderstanding of the facts.

Speaking in terms of "billions" of years, the claim is made that the entire proliferation of life on this planet, Earth, came about spontaneously. Sadly, this notion was purported long before Darwin ever thought of it. There is mention made of it in manuscripts nearly two thousand years old and part of the Christian Bible. "Everything has a creator." Example: Romans 1:19,20. The fact is that humanity has always had the question of, as the philosophers like to term it; "first cause,"

In Vexen Crabtree's thesis of 2018 found in The Argument that Everything Needs a Creator, Therefore God Exists as the First Cause, states the following:

If everything needs a creator, a designer, or a cause, then, the only question of worth becomes "what created the creator?", or "who designed the designer?" or "what caused the First Cause?". If God had the willpower, desire, powers and intellectual capability to create the Universe, then, what created those traits of God, and what created God itself? It is very difficult to argue that everything has a cause without admitting that you need one thing at least that remains uncaused.

Of course, like all philosophers and scientists, in fact, like all of humanity, we like to believe that we are smart enough to figure it all out, and therefore have all the correct answers, As it is with all discussions of religion and philosophy, it seems fitting to use the 'post hoc, ergo propter hoc' method of reaching a conclusion. But is it?

As well, there is an unfathomable number of preachers, religionists, and ideological gurus who weigh-in on the argument and expound upon their vast knowledge and understanding of the Bible and the nature of humanity, all claiming to know what is God's will. This one says that one is wrong and that one says the others are being misled and so on and on. This has not been the case for weeks, months, or even decades...this is a thousands-of-years-old argument between those who claim to be favored by and have exclusive access to God.

Consequently, it has become obvious that nobody knows what they are talking about. Face this fact: WE ARE NOT SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW. Plain and simple! You soothsayers who know when "the end" is coming, and you philosophers who love to debate endlessly about the unprovable nature of things. "God can't exist because everything has a creator." A conundrum! Who created God! I would say the entire thing is borderline ridiculous, but it crossed that boundary eons ago.

Humanity is completely incapable of solving crime, disease, aging, hunger, nationalism, racism, discrimination, greed, egoism, idolatry, envy, selfishness, and how many more parts of our own nature, and yet you still say humanity can figure out God, not to mention the sheer audacity of proclaiming that you understand nature and creation and the universe?

Tell us all how wide the universe is, and then I will personally explain to you where our Creator came from. Prove how this unfathomable proliferation of life and its complexity actually came into being by chance and circumstance, and I will personally show you the way to Heaven. Obviously, I could not accomplish either of those tasks, any more that you could do what I asked. All that humanity has to base its unprovable rhetoric on are ridiculous theories and conjectures.

Every crime requires a credible witness, as does a miracle, a heroic act, or a new record for Guinness! As they say, "The proof is in the pudding."

History recorded that thousands of people witnessed the miraculous passage of Jesus Christ through the events of their lifetime. One of the witnesses even said, "Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written" John 21:25.

So you can show all of the skepticism that you want, but the fact is in recorded history and proven to be accurate and true. You can argue the semantics all you like, but the fact of the matter is, YOU KNOW NOTHING beyond the fact that "This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him." 1 John 4:9

Jesus Christ was the culmination of Jewish history and the very reason the Jews were selected as a "People for God's name." The lineage that led to the Messiah is PROVEN HISTORY, Not speculation, conjecture, or theory. The only reason ANYONE would question God's existence is for one of two reasons: 1) They are sick of the battles between religionists and their hypocrisy and ignorance, or 2) They simply do not want to be answerable to a higher power.

In either case, you cannot deny our Creator's existence. Every facet of life in the world around you speaks of it. You also cannot deny the gift of life He is offering through Christ Jesus, our Lord, King, and Savior. (John 17:3) The majority of the world's population prays this way, "Our Father in heaven, may your name be made holy. Let your kingdom come, and your will take place on Earth, just as it is in heaven."
