7 Arguments for the Existence of God

I hope you don't think on such a small scale that that you believe stuff like this "just happens."

If so, seek help. It's not hard to find. At the same time, don't expect any personal attention. As you can see, He's got a lot on His Mind.

I would say, even with all this going on ..."You may indeed ASK for personal attention." Through prayer. We are in the hands of an awesome God our minds can not begin to perceive. But we have been given explicit instructions through Jesus Christ and the Word of God.

"...He's got a lot on His mind..." Isn't that some 'small scale' thinking? He does certainly have a lot on His mind... but you and I and the atheists who mock Him are always on His mind along with the rest of it. Our problem is that His manner of personal attention is very different than what we want or expect. Just ask Job.

No, of course not, "somebody" made it all happen.
ALL of it.

Would the world be any different if Henry Ford had invented the Chevrolet? Would anything have changed had Isaac Newton not liked to sleep under trees? If Columbus had fallen off the edge of the Earth? Possibly. But if the sun had indeed circled the Earth as many once believed, would the dawn look any different? To ask is to answer. It matters not if the sun circles the Earth or the Earth circles the sun. There would still be gravity if Isaac Newton had never been born. And therein lies the truth of life and destiny, and the truth is there is no truth, only dim and fleeting glimpses at the wonders of creation.

How wondrous is the stately tree
A lake, a glen, a meadowlark
A frozen stream, its icy banks
Concealing creatures with life’s spark
A consciousness of who they are
And where they are in God’s great scheme
All are alive, and such as we
Together share in Heaven’s dream
We walk the Earth and stride the stars
Imagination’s silver ships
Will take us where the distance becks
And shower nectar on our lips
The universe’s magic glow
The beauty of its wondrous mien
Is ours to share with all who live
And who, like us, live all unseen

There is something I don't undstand, so god.

Poor Alphonse. Thinks God= Problem solved. Non, Je ne regrette rien.

Very nice, Walt.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

and yes, the video for the song:

I'm so glad someone brought in that song.
