Tools... Hmmm. I Wonder...

I compare very closely the following.

A watch (or clock) is a very similar type of tool as the Bible (Torah, Qur'an, etc.) is.

I see these two tools in much the same way.

Interpreters of what we cannot see. But what we believe to be...

We cannot see GOD.

We cannot see TIME.

Though we can see the effects of both.

These are both guidance and measurement tools used in an equal and opposite fashion.

A side note (away from the main topic):

I think, in my mind, and heart-backed, that GOD and TIME are very closely related to one another. Maybe Brothers/Sisters shall we say, or twins even.

Yet everything that GOD is not, TIME is, and everything that TIME is not, GOD is. Both are very powerful agents that make/allow everything happen, and guide us through our days.

Both, I believe, have come into existence at the same "Moment", waiting for some thing/one to recognize them.

If one does not believe in GOD, and that is OK, is there a chance that they do not believe in TIME either?
