Magnificence of Nature is Proof of God

"Everything that God created fits together perfectly."







by Al Thompson
(henrymakow.com)



The magnificence of nature is the fact and the evidence of the existence of God.

I remember one afternoon, I was looking up at the sky and there were two rainbows overlapping each other, and a man I didn't even know turned around to me and said: "Who says there's no God?"

The beauty of the event was overwhelming and everyone who noticed completely enjoyed the view. We can't see God, but we see the evidence of his existence through his creation. We can't see the air, but we feel it going through our lungs. We can't see the wind, but we can watch its effect on the trees and the environment. We see the sun, the moon, and the stars make their circle and the beauty of outer space is indescribable. Everything looks good.
     
I do a lot of hiking in the mountains. If I look at a tree or a flower, the view of it is beautiful from every angle. How is it that this is so? Did it happen by accident? Did the flower evolve from some kind of unorganized scum? 

Everything that God created fits together perfectly.  The sun and the moon run their course providing daylight and light by night. 

The sun and the moon do not fight for position, they do exactly what God told them to do, and they do it perfectly every day.   Water provides refreshment for the whole earth, the beasts, and the plants.  It feeds the crops, provides for the necessities of life itself.  The earth gives up her fruit, and provides a home for all of mankind, beasts and plants.  We all have plenty of air to breath, food to eat, and all of nature serves mankind for his benefit.  Just looking at it makes a person feel good.  
     
When I go for a walk in a nice area, almost everyone has a smile on their face and they are enjoying the peacefulness of the natural order.  There is so much to look at and so much to admire in nature. 
     
God created mankind so that he could enjoy all of the good things that God created.  We were not put here on earth to suffer. If we stay within the natural order, then our lives will prosper.  I believe the purpose of the natural laws and God's commandments is to keep us out of harm's way and if we observe those laws, we will have prosperous lives.
      
MEN AND WOMEN

     
If God made everything perfectly, then it would follow that men and women were created to complement each other, and to live together in peace.  But since men have a free will, it is possible for them to make good and bad choices. 

I've always noticed how animals seem to be able to stay in their own natural order.  They choose their actions too; but they will usually stay within their own proper boundaries. Why can animals, but people can't?
     
One thing I've noticed with animals is that they don't engage in gratuitous sex, while many men and women do.  For an animal, sex is for making more babies; whereas, with people, it is almost like some kind of sporting event. 

For many people the sexual act is an end to itself.  With men and women, sexual activity should be within the context of the natural order which is a lawful marriage. 

Animals do not get married, but they do manage to stay within the natural order.  You don't see animals acting like Hollywood sluts. But the problem is that our culture has provided too many opportunities for casual sex and it is at the center of our failure as a society and as a people. 

Government and religions have helped this along with their insane doctrines of death.
     
If men and women put their relationships back into the natural order, they would benefit greatly.  Relationships, are a part of God's creation but they do have boundaries.
    
The evidence for the existence for God is within nature itself.  And the evidence of his commandments are contained within the natural laws, and all living things have a latent knowledge of the natural law.  God's existence doesn't depend on any written document.  A written document--if its testimony is true--will reflect the state of the case. 

GOD'S WORLD ORDER
     
Consider the words of  Clement of Rome around 100 A.D:

"The heavens, revolving under His government, are subject to Him in peace. Day and night run the course appointed by Him, in no way hindering each other. The sun and moon, with the companies of stars, roll on in harmony according to His command, within their prescribed limits, without any deviation. The fruitful earth, according to His will, brings forth food in abundance. At the proper seasons, for man and beast and all the living beings upon it. Never hesitating, nor changing any of the ordinances which He has fixed.
"  
 (1st Epistle of Clement)
    
We should be focusing our minds upon this and letting go of the brain-rot of today's culture.  There are too many good things that God created for us to enjoy, and it is worth our while to just turn away from evil and enjoy the life that God gave us.

Makow comment We are part of the miracle of Creation. Every time I take a walk in nature, savor a fruit or drink pure water, I marvel at God's bounty and generosity. I can't understand those who deny the existence of God, except to say they desire to take his place. We were put here to enact God's plan. Atheists/satanists obviously have their own plan, the NEW WORLD ORDER.

Yes nature can be cruel. That is why man also was given a moral order to govern his affairs.

Great article. Thank you for posting.

About three weeks ago I had the very same thought as the man whom Al encountered.

I had driven up to the mountains with a buddy of mine who wanted to scout for elk. I dropped him off then drove to where we would rendezvous. I got out of the truck and walked to a point that overlooked a deep canyon with tall mountains on either side.

The sun was setting on the west ridge as the moon was hanging low in a purple-orange colored sky. A warm, gentle breeze was blowing through my hair. The serenity of the moment was overwhelming. It was then that I said out loud to myself, "There is a God."

Anytime I have doubts about whether or not there is a God, or if He really cares about me, I just go for a drive into the mountains or to the ocean. It is then that all doubt is erased and my faith is restored. I am always awed at the majesty of His creation.

An absolutely wonderful and refreshing article; thank you; I really enjoyed it and I did me much good!

Anonymous is so right about having a moral consensus as a society! I too, am a child of the fifties and can easily identify with his feelings.

I was a little saddened by Billy's last line because it is so true. No country represents as much conglomerate evil as Israel does today. It absolutely amazes me that so-called Christians can have so abandoned the precepts and principles of their founder.

Anti-semite? Not a bit of it! Why not let these people speak for themselves?

Billy said (September 3, 2012):

I must take exception to this article. I will agree with the premise that in a very real way the beuty of life and nature proves the existance of 'God'. However , the article seems to assume it is one of mans 'imagined' gods. One who left us manuscripts of laws and commandments written by men claiming to speak for 'God'. It is my personal belief that we as people are part of an infinite energy and intelligence that are the living consciousness of 'God' and this 'God' experiences the greatness of itself through us as well as billions of other life form s in the universe.

The Bible and other religious book s are no more valid than my belief. In fact , probably less so since the discovery of Quantum physics. No one seems to question the vast amount of contradictions in the Bible and I won't go into them right now.

Also , Henry , you do not mention that most 'Christians' now worship Israel and Zionism as opposed to Jesus and fully support the evil NWO.


Tracy said (September 3, 2012):

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Al Thompson's article today ( Monday ) on the evidence of God in nature. I was especially moved by your closing comment.

I find that I completely agree with you. It's such a simple thing, every time I partake of the simple goodness of God's bounty, I experience the strongest sense of gratitude.

It's clear this world was designed for us, and we for it. What kind of person would I be to think that weren't true? What kind of thinking would I have to be doing not to enjoy the simple pleasure of just experiencing all that's here in nature, and my place in it. I'm not angry with atheists. I'm sorry that they can't
sense the wonderful purpose that's obviously at work in our lives, which brought us here.

And I find myself grateful for that moral faculty we were given. It separates us from the animals, and makes men and women responsible in a way God's other creatures can never fully know.


Ken said (September 3, 2012):

Well said! Things of creation being "beautiful from every angle" is something that has powerfully impressed me, of late. How God combines practicality and art is beyond genius. The complexity, design, and beauty continually state truths about Him to everyone on earth--even yet in a location invaded by suffering and death.

Mr. Makow's comment at the end hits a nail on the head, as well: "I can't understand those who deny the existence of God, except to say they desire to take his place."

Absolutely true!

The author is absolutely right. Here is how the Bible puts it:

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

That same chapter goes on to say, and this ties in with the article on S Korea by James Farganne:

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
The Bible is a fantastic book. It has the answer to everything, usually in a very succinct fashion. One of those commenting on Mr. Farganne's article said, "Imagine if that was YOUR 14, or 15, or 16 son
who was harassed on the subway in that way? Would you think it was okay?

I grew up in the '40's and 50's. Back then if you did something socially repulsive in public neighbors and even strangers would correct you for it. Teachers would physically punish you if you misbehaved in class and you didn't dare complain to your parents. If they found out, you'd be in even worse trouble with them.

When a society stops enforcing the moral code of the God who created us, it begins to deteriorate until it finally ceases to exist.


James said (September 3, 2012):

I just read this article and it blew my mind. It really struck deep chords within me. You are a very fine thinker. This article changed the way I look at things -- not from outside, but from inside, because I have always felt the same things -- but you articulated those feelings. A very fine article. Thank you sir.
