Will: I believe that the universe, this unfathomable mass or lack thereof, is too grand to exist without the presence of some higher power. I've read that if "out there" was some chaos, we'd call it such. We wouldn't refer to our universe as the cosmos had it not earned the right to be dubbed as such. I believe that when we look out into the night sky, we're staring into infinite, ever-changing order. I think order suggest an inherent creator. I think that's where God comes in to the picture. I couldn't imagine the universe any other way, like some accidental, fluke happening of infinite improbability (I could be misusing this term.) The universe, right down to the ground we humans tread, is too suggestive of divinity, of a divine hand's forming, to deny otherwise. I'd like to hear what you think about this. Hello Will, In the very first second of the Big Bang, the very first law of physics created was the Law of Gravity. This is also the weakest force of all the Laws of Physics. This contains the expansive force of the most awesome explosion in the history of the Universe, while still allowing it to expand to its utmost, optimum, potential, before its containment returns it to the singularity from which it came. This provides for the utmost, optimum, potential for the Creation of Life, which is what the Universe is, an Incubator for the Creation of Life. If it was not contained it would expand until it cooled off and died. Now this being the very first thing that occured in the very first second after the initiation of the Big Bang is just a little too precise and too convenient to have happened by mere chance, without the input of some intelligence that KNEW what it was doing and why. All the rest of Creation evolves from there, through the Laws of Physics that build one upon the other, through elemental evolution that takes place in the stellar furnace and the Super Nova that distributes the elemental form throughout the Universe, and through biological evolution that takes place on accumulations of the elemental form. But All Life provides for All Life. Nature actually teaches us to appreciate this through positive and negative reinforcement, in the classic B.F.Skinner tradition. Where our industrialization is detrimental to Life, Nature's bounty is less, where our efforts are in Harmony with Nature, the bounty is greater. So we are Taught Moral Integrity by Nature, which we ignore at the risk of our own extinction. Nature will continue on without us if need be, until it Creates a lifeform with the Moral Integrity to Revere ALL Life. Sure provides a strong indication of the Reality of God's existence if you ask me Will, but then, what do I know. :o)
