On God’s existence, creativity, intelligence, etc

Filed under: Meditation,Reason for Breathing,Thoughts and Reflections — Steve (Chessiq) @ 12:47 am

I have always wondered if non-human “things” talk to each other. For example, what do birds think about man? If they think at all, what do they think about the complex buildings that they see? How about the complex road systems? The nice cars? How about planes and jets? Do they wonder if the planes are living or non-living? If they had a debate on how long it took man to create all these things, from roads, to cars, to planes, to mansions, to computers… what do you think they would say? Some birds would say, man is highly intelligent that it takes him no more than a year to create things like that. Others would say, it is all an accident that the roads, planes, and other things, birds cannot do or imagine doing, came into existence. May be other birds would deny the existence of man! Just a thought.

I think that God is so beyond us in creativity, intelligence, etc that some of us choose to just believe that He is there; others just dismiss His existence; others still try to come up with proof that things just showed up!

If you were to write a book about man, how big would it have to be to make sense of who man is? Addressing how man came into existence, how man thinks about all sorts of things, how man loves and hates, how man is good and bad, about how man is dumb and smart, about how man is fair and cunning, about how loyal and disloyal… How big would the book be? If we were going to disappear or become invisible and we needed to leave proof that we existed? Proof that all that we see today is our work, how much would we have to write to prove it?

I consider it a sign of humility that God decided to leave one book about him. I also consider very humbling, that he created us, as proof of his existence… He created us in His own image.
