Atheism, Planetary System and God...

My son was in conversation with a fourteen year old "Atheist" at
school a day or so ago and was told God didn't exist.

To which Matt replied out of the entire planetary system we live in
why was there only one planet with life on it?

Why was there only one planet with the right gravitational law to support
the life that lived on it?

Why is there only one planet where there are mountains, streams, and oceans and the Moon which makes waters change?



And I thought his response to the acclaimed young Atheist was simple and intriguing.

And then I realized a truth about those who profess "Atheism" since there is not a value of absolutes to support it. Atheism is a belief that really doesn't exist itself, which is exactly what they usually accuse Christianity of. It might be applied or proclaimed but there is nothing to support it. Science can't support it when it comes to absolutes because there is no value in theory only opinion. It is actually a faith in its own right. Interesting enough, those that apply it to themselves are usually against the word Faith. The past transgressions of men, the misplaced beliefs and crimes of humanity, the Atheist' mantra of "How can God allow?" is always at the forefront of their argument. To even say "How Can God" is a confession of belief...

Recently in a facebook conversation a young man was accusing God of killing innocents, being used to wage wars, and so on...and I found it somewhat humorous and ironic that the young man who was so convinced in his thoughts against God, was a member in the United States Military who excutes judgement also...

In another conversation with a man who had once professed atheism, said the deeper he studied scientific evidence there could be NO other explanation than that God really existed. He came back to God and found his true Faith...

It may be that "Atheism" is just another way for humans to buck the system of core absolutes. And like the Nat that bugs the horse it is just a way for some people to find a reason to be a societal abnormality in which some find comfort because religion or life hasn't worked out for them.

The secrets most come to realize is that Religion never works out for anybody and life no matter how much one has or does not have won't bring true satisfaction to the soul...

But God has always supplied what religion and life can not through a real relationship with him.
A Faith in God, born out struggle into fulfillment, will satisfy the hungry soul, bring relief to the repressed, and freedom to the enslaved...

The circumstances of our lives may not always change and while men or goverments may control the body... only God can bring freedom to the soul...



Thought for the Day... Kudos' to Matt!!!

Pay close attention to the second paragraph. We are far from the only planet that can support life.

Thanks for the link...words like "where" or "could" don't much to support their theory...:) There is still no evidence other than thought...
