The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the air has that lovely crisp clean feeling that makes me feel not only alive, but wonderful. I look around me at all the beauty that surrounds me even here in the city, and I can’t help but wonder how anyone could deny the existence of God.
I know people who vehemently don’t believe in God. They claim that they are scientific people–beings who need proof of anything before they can have believe in it. Scientific proof. And since no one has ever successfully proven the existence of God, they will not give credence to the existence of a higher being.
They, of course, turn a blind eye to the fact that no one has been able to successfully disprove the existence of God.
I’ve thought about their view of the world, and it saddens me that they are denying themselves so much joy, so much hope, and so much stability. And all because they feel they are too educated to believe in what they call superstition, when in reality, they are too uneducated to really understand the scientific process. Because science is about questions, not really about answers. If we knew all about how our world works, if there were no questions left to answer, science would not exist. It would be dead.
It is true that science cannot prove the existence of God. But that is because science can only hope to find answers to questions that are quantifiable. Science works best if there is something that can be measured, changed, remeasured, changed again. If the scientist cannot manipulate it, then no experiments can be created and the whole thing is merely a theory. And theories are by nature only proven until someone else comes along and disproves it.
Of course, that means that since God cannot be disproven, God is a viable theory.
The funny thing about these self proclaimed “scientific nonbelievers” is that they’ll eat up even the most hair-brained theories put out there by a scientist even if no proof is has ever truly been found. If they want to believe that this, that, or the other is true, they require amazing little hard proof.
Except when it comes to God. For them, God is the one theory they cannot accept.
