Religion is big on faith. Many religions say that there are "mysteries man is not meant to know". We are expected to believe in an all-powerful God because other people tell us to.
That’s not good enough. If there is a God we need to know it for ourselves.
Religion and Science butt heads. Science says: "If a thing exists, there must be tangible evidence and proof." Religion says: "God demands our unquestioning faith and devotion. Just accept it and don’t be blasphemous."
With due respect to both institutions, my view of the universe is this: If God exists, and if He has a plan of action that involves me, wouldn’t it be His responsibility to let me know about it?
I think so.
Apparently He agrees.
He has given me evidence. It’s sitting on the table beside me right now, next to my Bible, and it’s a dead giveaway that God is really there.
