Anyways, these past few days I was able to come up with a list of proofs or reasons why we should believe in God’s existence. Remember I had poll entitled, "Do You Believe That God Exist?" Surprisingly, there were 3 voters who said "No". Hence, I believe this is worth sharing. But hey, no offence to all atheists out there. I'm just sharing. Remember, sharing is loving. I got all these information from a magazine called Awake!
1. The universe is a masterpiece. When we look at a beautiful painting or admire a fine sculpture, we do not doubt the existence of a painter or a sculptor. Right? So when we contemplate a waterfall or gaze at a sunset, should we not be moved at least to consider the possibility that they are the work of a Great Artist or Sculptor?
"[God's] invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward,
because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and
Godship, so that they are inexcusable."—Romans 1:20.
2. The Big Bang Theory is flawed and ridiculous.
One example of its flaw is that, a certain Big Bang Theorist named Wendy Freedman claims that the universe is still expanding. Meaning, the Big Bang process is still ongoing until now. Her theory allegedly claims that the Big Bang process started eight billion years ago. Funny thing is, most astronomers believe that the universe is 15 billion years old or so.
3. Every living thing on earth is wonderfully made. One famous line of poetry says: "Only God can make a tree." Yet, far more marvelous is the creation of a baby, which occurs without any creative direction from parents. When sperm from the father unites with an egg from the mother, plans are quickly drawn up in the DNA of the newly formed cell to produce a child. "If written out," it is said, the instructions within the DNA "would fill a thousand 600-page books." That is but the beginning. The original cell divides to make two, then four, then eight, and so on. After about 270 days, a baby made up of thousands of millions of living cells of more than 200 kinds is born. And to think that the original cell had within it the information to make all the different kinds of cells and to produce them at just the right time!
"You yourself produced my kidneys; you kept me screened off in the belly of my mother. I shall laud you because in a fear-inspiring way I am wonderfully made."—Psalm 139:13-16.
Those who have studied these "miracles" feel a sense of awe. Dr. James H. Hutton, past president of the Chicago and Illinois State Medical societies, said that he was filled with amazement by the cell's "magical ability to pass on to successor cells the data they wish reproduced. It is indeed wonderful that our research scientists have been able to learn about such things. But some Divine Intelligence surely must have planned these phenomena."
Dr. Hutton continued: "In my own subspecialty of endocrinology, the study of endocrine functions and the disorders of these glands adds to the conviction that a Divine Power must be responsible for the marvelous complexity and function of these vital structures."
He concluded: "Contemplating these marvels seems to me compelling reason to believe that some omnipotent and omniscient power planned this universe, set it in motion and presides over it."

Note: The list is not yet finished. I'm thinking of posting at least 10 reasons. ;)
Also, I remember that I mentioned on my previous entry that my next post would be about working abroad. I will try to do that tomorrow. Have a great day guys! Smile. ;)
