What is the reason that we as human beings are existing?


We exist because God created us. But in this creation, humans had to build a better world, to love each other, to help one another. Instead humans are the worst animals that exist on this earth. Humans were created to be the higher being, but inferiority reigns supreme everyday.
Why? How can we make Humans behave better?

God doesn't care.

Man keeps a flock of sheep for meat and milk, and God keeps man on earth just for what he wants, and the rest of God doesn't care.

That is too simplistic and dark a view. IMHO I think more like:

To do Good.
To LOVE.
To Learn.
To Create.
To Discover.
To Remember and have Souls as a result.

To make the World a better place. To create life rather than to take it.
To Stop Satanic forces such as Donald J Trump and the Republican War Mongers behind him to make the World a dark sad place.

Yes, correct you are Sir. But I think as we make ourselves better, as we control our greed and lust for money, we will also force the "Hate Mongers and War Mongers" on Wall Street and other money grubbing places into shame.

I think that is wishful thinking. For the greedy money grubbing soulless Pigs on Wall Street have NO shame and limitless Money to sow their seeds of Hate and Misery. Just look at the State of Healthcare in USA, leading to the Joke ObamaCare and now the bigger Joke TrumpCare. Resulting in:
50-Million+ Americans without Health Insurance

Fardoush, very well said. All you have to do is to look at the state of healthcare in USA to know how Wall Street cabal is waging war on US, leading to ObamaCare and now even the worse TrumpCare :(
While they fully know that "Socialized Healthcare" is only way to run Healthcare of a Country since 100% of all developed Nations from Europe, to Canada, to Australia etc. all have it.

No one can make humans better. It is done from the inside out. We can only be an example to others, and if they notice the light within you, they will wonder at your joy when the world seems in such a sad state. We know the end is coming and a lot of bad things are going to happen. We cannot change bad people into good ones. But if they see joy within you, they will wonder why you're just so damn happy! Tell them, tell them there is a better world on the way, and it's closer than most think. We can see the worst, or we can see the best. There are a lot of people who love the Lord, and seek His wisdom so we may apply the knowledge He gave us to become part of His kingdom. Listen to the Word. Look for His presence.

raybanned, put down the Cool-aid man :)
1st, I agree that "the world seems in such a sad state" and that is due to the Wall Street, Military Industrial Complex & Israel lobby, resulting in election of one War Monger after another War Monger to US President. From 2 Bush Wars, to 7 Obama Wars to God knows how many Wars by even Bigger War Monger (Sociopath) that is Trump. But we can STOP these Wars if just expose the Wall Street for right-wing War Mongers they are. DO it People.

You're both a fine demonstration of hate, narrow-mindedness, and can't think of anything to say except the same ol' rhetoric over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over........LOOK UP!!! Get your head out of that rut you call "news", propagated by people that are not even reporters or probably don't even have a job, because all you do is talk, talk, talk. Go eat some Fruit Loops.

So you are saying that Advocating for Peace, that being against War after War after War that Republicans & Democrats bring about, is to be: "demonstration of hate"
WOW WOW WOW!
Thank you for proving yet again what lunatics right-wing Media, aka Wall
Street, has created in USA when where one is for Peace you label that as being: "demonstration of hate". I guess then being for War after War as Obama_Bush_Trump are, then that must be "demonstration of love"!

We do not behead people of any race, religion, etc. We do not burn people alive. We do not poison gas our own people. We do tie children to beds so we can fuck them in the ass whenever we choose, and then beat up their mother for begging not to hurt her child. If you do not believe these things are happening and that people who have no conscience over treating other people, women, children, like less than animals. Who is going to stop them? Who is even TRYING to stop them?

Ray, who are you talking about that is:
"We do not behead people of any race, religion, etc. We do not burn people alive."
?? If by this you mean ISIS. Well ISIS did NOT exist in Iraq until US waged War on Iraq and destroyed the Secular government there and killed 1-Million Iraqi People in processing of doing so. This means you have US Wars, sold by Republicans and Democrats, to thank for creation and being of ISIS.

There's only one word for people who think like you, and as an American, I believe in free speech. That word is ignorant. What is the point of the discussion? That innocent babies just got gassed by Syria? That it didn't happen? Or is it more important to stop the people that commit such heinous acts? Where is your heart? Is it so full of hatred that it makes you blind to the evil that occurs before your very eyes? Whining about the USA instead of crying over babies being gassed. Hmmmmm

So let's not get involved because we're the USA? Are you kidding? If it was YOUR children being gassed and nobody did anything about it, wouldn't you be a little peeved that someone with a MOAB didn't stop them? Would you rather see children being gassed, or somebody with the balls to confront the bullies of the world? Go ahead with your boring rhetoric about what war mongers we are, we can take it. Look up children of war on UTube. Get a GOOD look, then tell me again it's all on us. Pity.

Are you for Real! Get your Head out of the Ass of Fox and other War Monger News sites in US. After all:
1- Where is the proof that Syrian Gov Gased their People?
2- Syrian Gov says that US (Terror) allies did this.
3- This WMD reason for Bombing and waging War on an Islamic Country to remove her Secular regime was used by Bush in 2002, and was a TOTAL Lie as per Colin Powell speech in UN. Are you that Brain DEAD to have forgotten those LIES already!

You have a right to believe whoever you wish. Where is the proof the DIDN'T???? I guess the USA paid those people to pretend their children were gassed. It was also in WORLD news, not just USA. As if we are the only country on earth that lies. Ha, what a dream world you live in! The only ones saying it didn't happen are people like you. You still can't picture yourself or your children being gassed. That's brain dead. I guess N. Korea is your idol country. Or maybe Syria. Why don't you move?

Because nobody listens to you on the political page? Neither do I. If you come back again, I'm just going to start quoting the Bible instead of the news. Obviously, you ain't got no Jesus!

talking politics instead of the subject at hand. That's brain dead. Duh, dude, you're on the wrong page. Col 2:2-3ย  That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;ย In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
You're looking in the wrong place for answers, believing the wrong people, but that's your choice. Try praying.

You actually said:
"Where is the proof the DIDN'T????"
This is not how we prosecute, by the accused presenting proof that they did not do something. On that note:
Where is the proof the CIA DIDN'T stage this attack to give excuse for Trump bombing Syria as Bush bombed Iraq?

After all: WHY would Assad regime go and use Gas on their People when they/we KNOW that this is the excuse for the War Mongers (Trump_Bush) to bomb a Muslim Country? WHY?

the same reason you insist on putting politics on the religious page. You insist on publishing your twisted propaganda and ideas here, instead of there. How dumb is that? You people shove it and then shove some more, never changing script. There is always a conspiracy, and the usa is just as criminal as any other nation. we all spy on one another, lie about one another, try to manipulate one another, just as you are manipulated by narrowmindedness. The blame is not in the usa gov't. look around

learn to observe from a higher perspective, you'll get a better picture of the whole Earth. Like watching traffic below. And in the words of Neil Young, if you're mature enough to know his music, "Everybody knows this is nowhere." Your arguments are obsolete. I can no longer remain at this lower level to argue the point with you. Still chasing that rabbit round the track. Best wishes.

Friend, while you are correct that God created us, I believe you overlooked a whole lot and presented a statement that doesn't at all appear to be consistent. God created us as He did everything but we hold a very special place in all of creation. Unlike other creatures having mind, will and emotion; we while having the aforementioned, are also given spirit. This makes us unique in all creation. I pose the question back to you. Why do you suppose God would give so special a gift as these and then allow us to do as we please? Do you think God intended us to mindless, heartless automatons'? God is a gentleman in that He will never force someone to follow Him that is not His to command. However, we who are His, emulate Him. We are to be a light in this dark world that others may draw unto our Lord. We cannot change the heart of man thus make humans do anything. That is a God thing alone.

You want a great example that SOME Humans, not all, are indeed "the worst animals that exist on this earth", well then consider the Trump attack on Syria based on unproven allegations of Syria having used WMD on her People just as Bush used same allegations to wage War on Iraq. A great analysis of which comes from Bolivia UN envoy. Here:

Amazing but so typical that there was no presentation of opposing points, such as where is your proof that Assad used WMD against the People? Specially given the fact that Bush used same unverified reasoning to bomb Iraq with catastrophic results! No the Wall Street media, aka Fake News, instead cheered Trump for bombing Syria just as they cheered Bush for bombing Iraq just as they cheered Obama for bombing Libya. Really sick :(

Thank you for posting this Video. It is a real Eye opener as to War Mongers Trump and US Madison, aka Wall Street based Media are. For as the Bolivian ambassador so eloquently stated there is NO proof that Syrian Gov carried out this Chem attack and not CIA Isreal backed rebels. So Trump lied just as Bush lied and just as then Wall Street based Media is selling these lies!

By what example or fact are you stating that: "humans are the worst animals that exist on this earth"?

I assume you mean by this, those Humans that Kill for Money & Greed and based on lies. Aka wage Wars upon other Countries based on lies. Such as USA under Sociopath Trump having just launched Air strikes on Syria, because it is "Oh so worried about Arab Mooslem children Gased by Assad...", when this same US & UK waged War on Iraq under Mountain of lies and KILLED 1-Million Iraqi Man, Women and Child and created the Refugee crisis to Europe too, and all under the Bush lies that "Hussein had used WMD..." And lets also state that Obama came and carried all the Bush Wars just as Bush and added the Libya War too which killed countless Arab Mooslems, and so goes this non-stop Evil by these War Mongers. Is that what you meant?
If yes, there is only 1 way to Stop it, that is to get the Truth in contrast to their LIES.

Thank you for proving yet again what War Mongers & Hate Mongers you People are. And that indeed: (some) "humans are the worst animals that exist on this earth". Those Humans that either partake in or cheer Wars based on LIES.

For more proof, Google or Anoox:
Why is USA engage in War after War after War, while China the 2nd largest economy in World, that borders Afghanistan, repeat borders Afghanistan, is engaged in ZERO such Wars?

In order to address your question properly, one must have a proper understanding of what we are. In the beginning, God created our earliest ancestors Adam and Eve from the dust of the "ground" and infused their souls with the divine breath/spirit and thus man became a living soul (Gen 2:7) made in God's image of life (Gen 1:26). The phrase the "The dust of the ground" implies that man was created from the "lower" earthly region and the statement "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man "became" ( was transformed into) a living soul" implies that it was the breath of life that transformed man from a dead earthly grounded terrestrial into a living soul i.e a partaker of the the "upper"/ heavenly/divine nature of God and as such, when man was in the garden of Eden, He had a dual inclination, the upper heavenly and the lower beastly. Whenever God's Holy Spirit was sovereign in man, he was good and was all that God intended but whenever man's own ground

nature was sovereign in man he was evil/beastly and was all that God did not originally intend. The forbidden trees represent both of the inclinations/proclivities of man. The tree of life represents the tendency to choose the sovereignty of the breath of life i.e the Spirit of God in the soul while the tree of knowledge of good and evil represents the tendency to choose the sovereignty of the self i.e do the self's will at the expense of God's will.

...living chose the sovereignty of self/beastly intelligence i.e making self will 'god' i.e sovereign and shared this knowledge or tendency with her husband and since it is an indisputable law in nature that like "must" beget like, we all inherited this fallen nature from our progenitors and as a result of this, the beastly i.e ground or fallen nature reigns supreme in us.

Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. Job 14:4
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:5
We are shapen in the image of the fallen nature that our progenitors chose and as a result of this, sin is encoded into our dna which means that we are by nature programmed to sin because of the 'sin code' or knowledge that is sovereign in us which further means that sin is the invisible force or life that gives us sentience which...

...further means that in our sinful state ,we are addicted and restricted to the 'ground' senses i.e the things of time and space and dead to Spirit i.e eternal things and as many of us who read the Bible already know, we cannot serve to masters either we will love one and hate the other or hold unto one and despise the other. We cant be lukewarm. We must either be hot or cold so we are either dead to the heavenly and alive to the earthly (the ground) or alive to the heavenly and dead..

to the earthly. In our 'ground' state we are dead to the heavenly and alive to the earthly because we have been programmed to be restricted to the dense earthly senses and dead to higher abstract spiritual realities that are outside the realm of time space and mind (i.e those accessible in Christ). In our earthly state we are programmed to be exclusively conscious of the things of time. In the ground animal state, we are programmed to be selfish and to follow the lusts of the flesh (Gal 5:9)

And in nature, there is the law of multiplication. One becomes many. One father and mother multiplied into many. One tree produces many fruit. Two cockroaches multiply into many cockroaches so as time evolves, the original sin of our progenitors keeps evolving i.e multiplying and becoming more and more base which is why our conduct worsens as the days roll by. The abominations of yesterday become the norm of today.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,..2 Tim 3:13

So in answer to your questions, we are worse than animals because sin i.e the ground nature is sovereign in man and because you cannot solve a problem with the same mindset that created it, nothing we can do or will do (in our own ground nature) will improve us. We will keep getting worse and worse until we make Christ i.e life sovereign again or in other words make Him God again. "We" wanted to be God and therefore we symbolically stole Christ's right to divinity in us away..

and enthroned ourselves (Gen 3:4-6). We must (in our heart) return Christ (i.e the breath of life) to the throne room of our hearts if we want to behave better. We must follow God's (i.e invisible Spirit's) will and deny ourselves of our own ground i.e earthly or "self"ish nature. Christ exercises His Lordship in us as the Holy Spirit. Christ cannot save you from hell unless he is able to save you from self. Many profess that Jesus is Lord but few actually want Jesus to Lord it

...over their souls. Are we ready to hand over the sovereignty of our souls to God? Are we ready to dethrone the tendency to respond to the ground proclivity and enthrone the tendency to respond to the heavenly proclivity? Are we ready to admit that our way is totally wrong and God's way is right?

We sin because it is "in" our nature to sin. i.e all our "internal " behavioral patterns are 'programmed' to be sinful or in other words, they are empowered by sin. Are we ready to allow Christ to internally 'reprogram' our behavioral patterns i.e allow Him to internally empower our behavioral patterns? Are we ready to allow Christ to collapse the strongholds i.e our original programming that keeps us in bondage to the dense ground senses?

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down "imaginations", and every "high thing" that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;2 Cor 10:4-5

All the imaginations in our minds and high things (exalted knowledge) that make us reject God must be collapsed i.e cast down by Christ if we want to perceive truth.

I think that this world we live in is a testing ground for us to learn the difference between good and evil. When Adam and Eve sinned and broke God commandment and trusted Satan instead of God the perfect world changed from good to evil but with Jesus coming to earth and being out dscrifice and bringing us the good news that if we repent of our sins (we have all sinned and come short of God's glory), we could be saved. Satan was hrown down to earth with us and now rules this earth hence all the crime, killings, wars, etc. but as Jesus told us in the Bible He will come back soon to rule the earth with a rod of iron.

We are created in Gods image to be with God as His family, but Eve disobeyed God and basically called Him a lair and believed the lie over truth. Adam gave into peer pressure and we as man (male and female) became a sinful creature knowing good and evil. The wages of sin is death. So God wants people who will believe He is and He rewards of those who believe Him. God sent His Son to be our punishment and those who believe Jesus was raised from the dead and will confess Jesus as Lord will be saved AND be a joint heir with Jesus. FAITH FAITH FAITH

You are right about mankind being "the worst animals", but it is due to the fact that God gave 'free moral agency' (free-will) to humanity, but NOT animals. All other animals react according to instinct. But humanity responds by personal choice. In the highest sense, their choices will reflect the will of God. Conversely, the further away from God a person strays, the worse his/her choices become. Much more about existence can be found on my blog @ /mjthompsons.wordpress.com/. Peace!

There are a couple parts to the answer. Your soul is eternal. It has no beginning and no end. As such, it often chooses to play games. The love of playing games is one thing we all have in common. As for the physical, it's constantly created to provide an answer for any questions your soul may have. It gives us a playground to discover the answers and does so through constant lessons. The world is different for every person and is a constant reflection so that you can discover both the issues that your soul faces along with the opportunity to discover the answer. When you truly discover an answer, your world (determined by your perception) changes. Now, in the physical, everything is created in pairs which creates a balance. Hence, one cannot exist without the other. If you want to experience what you consider good, you have to experience what you consider bad. Without both, everything is just gray because good is a perception based on bad. This applies to everything.

I totally respect your perspective but it's one I personally do not share because, to me, our souls are all one in the spiritual realm hence God's creation refers to the physical realm. Again, this is my perspective and I appreciate the journey that you are on.

I respect your perspective but still - how can anything 'created' be eternal? God is eternal, but was NOT created - GOD is THE CREATOR. Everything else (including the entire spiritual realm) has a definite 'beginning' and an ultimate 'end'. If you read my Article you'd see that a significant difference exists between an eternal being and 'immortal' beings. Both transcend the 'normal' span of life in this present phenomenological realm, But only GOD who has NO beginning, nor end is ETERNAL.

In my perspective, the spiritual realm combined with the physical realm make up the all that is; God. Therefore God is in everything in all existence. People's souls are a fragment of the spiritual and are therefore still eternal. The physical bodies and characters that people make up are temporary vessels that can easily change based on the feelings (spiritual) of the person. Your individual perspective shapes your world which is why your soul is a creator being a fraction of the whole creator.

Truly see people as good and they will be in your universe, see them as bad and they will be in your universe. Either way, everyone always gets exactly what they want even if their character is not in touch with their true self enough to realize it or see the bigger picture of their soul's development.

Indeed, the soul that claims belief in a certain eternal destiny shall get what they want. But be extremely careful of what you wish for. God does not interfere with free-will, which is why so much evil continues and so many perish rather than choosing eternity with God. Choose to be separated from God, you'll be granted your wish.

In my view, people perish because it's their time to perish. This was determined by your soul before it even arrived in the physical. Certain things in life are fate (written) and how you spend time between these points is your free will. You can enjoy those times or hate those times and so free will affects your perspective. It's not possible to truly be separated from God because nothing else exists other than God.

People feel so guilty because they think they "left" God so they assume that God wants to punish them. God does not distinguish between right and wrong because there's always a situation in which something that's "wrong" can be "right". It's why your fears manifest so easily. You feel them and the spiritual does not distinguish because it's based on the exact situation. Divine love needs to be experienced and I can't possibly describe it.

If my comments make sense to you and you "feel" them, take what you will. If you don't, you'll still get to where you're going but by a different path. Thank God, we have all these different religions and beliefs so that different people can find their way to the same destination taking different paths. Best wishes to all of you.

You stated: "In my view, people perish because it's their time to perish". How is it possible for ANYTHING 'eternal' to perish? Having an expiration date predetermined before life points to a beginning and an end, NOT eternal life. Your other idea: " nothing else exists other than God", stems from an ancient pagan believe in universalism where 'god' is the universe & all are in god, & all are god, rendering god to be a mere impersonal 'force', but NOT a separate supreme being. Your reasoning

is circular. You say we're all god, but then you cite examples of people feeling guilty about being separated from GOD. Then you 'thank' the impersonal force? "Thank God, we have all these different religions and beliefs so that different people can find their way to the same destination taking different paths." Indeed, there are many different paths that lead to the "same destination" - BUT THAT common destiny is final judgment before true GOD, after which you will either remain with God for

eternity, or you will perish. Those who go on to eternity are NOT 'eternal beings' because they all had a beginning. That their 'end' is never imposed makes them 'immortal' NOT 'eternal'. Assuming you have an open mind and care about discovering truth rather than merely parroting the teachings of others, I suggest you research your ideas further, as your personal destiny hangs in the balance. If you are ABSOLUTELY right, I've nothing to loose. If I am right - you'll loose everything.

Your idea that "nothing else exists other than God", can't be true because if we are all god or already part of god or in god, why does everyone have to search for GOD. If we are automatically existing as god, why don't we know it? Such a concept of god is far less than the ALL KNOWING GOD the Bible reveals. The 'everything is god" idea reveals a less-than-perfect god, which by definition, is NOT GOD. Atheists say there is NO God, at least realizing that if God does exist, He must be perfect.

Your idea that god is NOT a personal Supreme Being, but something else, part of ALL life, makes no sense. It doesn't explain the many OPPOSITE aspects of life that are ungodly - evil, hatred, disharmony, etc.. If we are all god, & god is everything, is god evil? Does god war against himself (or itself)? Circular reasoning perpetually results in unanswered questions that merely create more questions without answering anything. Wondering about god while already being in or part of god is absurd.

We all know who we are as personal beings. As individuals we may or may not agree on many things, but we all know we are 'human' NOT bugs or other animal life forms. If we are really all god, then why don't we know that?

Do you believe as the Buddhist that you are merely a reincarnation of an earlier ancestor? Was that ancestor a 'lower life form'? Are you 'evolving' through many reincarnations into a more perfect life form? Is the ant on the ground your relative? Is the ant god? Is water god? is air god? is fire god? Is your next-door neighbor god? Are the global terrorists god? Are you god?

You are correct, you have nothing to lose. I'm not trying to convince you of anything but merely stating my simple truths. If it has to be more complicated, by all means make it such for your universe. For me, I celebrate that which unites us and the complexities that divide us are merely steps along the path to reach a more complete understanding of divine love, or God if you prefer.

As for reincarnations, there is no time and space. They are all occurring simultaneously in different dimensions so no I don't view any life as a 'lower life form' and I hold to the truth that if I was any other person and lived their life, I would make the exact same decisions that they make. That's unconditional acceptance which is the hallmark of a perfect non-judgmental being.

Nothing in life has a definition without it's opposite in perfect balance. You can't experience joy without sadness. You can't find something beautiful without finding something ugly. The very definition is dependent on it's counterpart. One cannot exist without the other. Thanks for sharing your views, I really admire your thought process and conviction.

If you truly 'admire' my thought process and believe your opposing thoughts - ignoring the obvious conflict is NOT non-judgmental, it is nativity. Everything in life has definition,

You got me good with the smoking comment and interesting choice of capitalizations. It's like you know me. I guess your views were right all along (for you) and there's no way I can respond in a way that would benefit you so this is where my responses conclude. Once again, good luck on your path. For the internet at large, people don't get upset when they know something, they get upset when they're not 100% sure and feel the need to fight for their opinions.

Since, this article was 'partially' posted under Christianity I wanted to point out that Radiant11:11's opinions are not reflective of Christianity at all. These are teachings of the occult new age and should be viewed as those reflective of the new age.

God is not impersonal, cosmic, a God of energy forces. Do not be deceived! New Agers do not mean God or Jesus Christ of the Bible. Most New Age teachers hold that Mother Earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars, indeed all of Nature can be...

worshipped as God.

Oprah also taught new age religion and once claimed, "there are many paths to what you call God." This is refuted in the Bible in John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

There are many faiths that profess to be Christian. Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses, Judaism, etc. 1 John 4 gives us wisdom on the matter.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

New Ageism embraces supernaturalism, but ascribes it to the creature, not the Creator (as in Romans 1:22-24). They flaunt the "I am God" concept as it naturally appeals to man's ego and thirst for power, an appeal as old as the Garden of Eden. Satan promised Eve: "Ye shall be as God."

The lure of the occult is almost always on the basis of acquiring knowledge or power. [Neil T. Anderson, The Bondage Breaker, pg. 114] We crave a knowledge that is esoteric, not normally available to the ordinary person. We want to experience a power that is spiritual and supernatural in origin. People don't seem to want to hear what God has to say, they want information and direction from someone else who "knows";

a psychic, a channeler, a palm-reader, a card-reader, Ouija boards, astrology, magic charming, automatic writing, or the spirit of a dead friend of relative. In a sense these are God-given desire, but they are intended to be fulfilled by the knowledge and power which comes from God. However, Satan is busy trying to pass off his counterfeits for God's knowledge and power as the real thing. If he can get us to accept his versions of knowledge and power, he has a foothold in our life.

Excellent points! However, I'm afraid people who are not seeking true God, but merely self gratification and exultation CANNOT understand those points.

I believe in him simply because when I look around me, I think it is impossible that all this is the work of a coincidence all this precision is the work of a divine force !! Nature of the mutual needs that have these animals (even humans) I do not know how to explain it to you, but just thinking of a world without sun and the consequences it would have on planet earth, It is impossible be born nothing !!
