So it goes:
‘What proof do you have of a Creator?’
In my very best John McEnroe on the tennis court challenge to the official I shout: ‘YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!’ But to satisfy the questioner I state anyway:
‘My proof of a Creator is life itself and all that is in it, above, beyond, and below.’
Quite a dilemma for any to challenge this assertion, for the return complaint is: ‘My proof of no Creator is life itself.’
And then I say quietly that you cannot have my proof and steal it as your own, for you just foolishly admitted I have no proof.
What, you are saying life is a mirage? So then, outside of life, where is YOUR proof the Creator does not have all trademarks, copyrights, and patents to His own creation?
Do you have the blueprints for the creation of the bumblebee? The great whale? An ant? A spider’s web? The eye of the eagle? The claws of a tiger? The speed of a leopard? The human conscience? Perhaps some of your friends have the prints somewhere on file…….
Do you hold the patent for that genius relationship called marriage as being ‘one flesh?’ Do you? I have proof of the Master Designer for this institution. Where is yours?
I have proof that there are 24 hours in the day put into motion by the Creator. What friend of yours had this novel idea? Then there is always the seven days in the week, in which all mankind agrees that this is a pretty good concept. Then there is the year… Got any buds who dreamed this up?
I have proof that the Creator holds all things together; yep, He keeps the stars in place, the tides, the seasons. He provides water. Would you happen to have any friends with this kind of strength?
Do you hold the copyrights to mankind giving birth after his kind, as opposed to birthing hyenas? Well, maybe a poor choice, as many a man does not have the manners of the critter.
L’ chaim! To life I say, is evidence enough. If the reliability and consistency of time, life, and days are not convincing, no amount of ‘proof’ will ever satisfy a heart stayed in the land of Rebellionsville. And oops, I forgot, the scriptures confirm that life begets life, and the Creator put His ‘amen’ on the truth that confirms His handiwork.
Gotta love that rainbow too, as a wink from above.
(yeah yeah I know the accusation of ‘simpleton’ will be hurled quicker than a speeding bullet, and on target as a McEnroe serve, but hey, I like simple)
