So many people who do not believe in God; where did they come from?
It is the classic statement from scientific advocates that have answers to all the questions that have no grounds for any of the “when did all this begin?”
Some of the younger generation portray the image of the Big Bang theory without going any further into its existence without any forethought. To them, a professor’s answer is enough and they just move on in their chosen field of science before faith. But then faith; what is that, they may ask. If you have too many questions regarding something that has no significant place in the science of everything that exists, why even consider who these Christian people adore when it does not apply in today’s culture.
However, there is another faction of persons who do not believe there is a God, and like the scientific minded students they too don’t even have a grasp on the Big Bang theory. The irony of their belief in existence is far too serious to let it go. I am afraid that for all the people who have this mental idea floating in their brains is doing more to draw souls away from God than Satan’s plan to tear apart the divine entity of God, heaven, and the reason Christ, through the Incarnation, took on humanity in order to save it. If you do not have faith in Christ and what he died for, listen to grandma who also does not believe in a God, and you will have generations slipping away from the salvation our Father promised to all who believe.
When seeking knowledge in any endeavor of life, listening to those who teach will determine the future of graduates and the wisdom of a godless nation which is destined to fail. Once upon a time, in Catholic Universities, the indoctrination of the Ten Commandments as a basis and all that Christ opened before us was the way to learn, understand, and move to evangelize the existence of God, the creator of all that exists. That was then! Today the degrees of faith has taken a hit and only God knows what is being taught. In many cases, the theological premise of learning, teaching, and spreading the gospel to all ends of the earth is no longer a priority.
If procreation was just a simple scientific matter of an egg in a petri dish to make a man they would need more than that. However, for scientists to recreate mankind without the egg of a female, where would they begin? Who created organs, blood vessels, a heart and mind to operate every sinew in this body, and joints and muscle to cooperate with the likes of a computer, falling short of exactness, would become like Fraknstein’s monster.
Unfortunately many of those who choose a narrow minded opinion may be among thousands with a very low IQ and comprehension of some input of a theological mindset may never find the true answers they need. These are the ones the rest of us must seek out and gently give them the basics of redemption and that there is a God.
It may not appear that we are breaking records or creating new approaches to theology, but God’s kingdom will be built one person at a time. Count, if you can, how many years have passed since God sent his first man and woman into the world and here it is still unfolding before us; planting one seed at a time, remembering with God time does not exist, just us!
