There is evidence that there is a higher supernatural being. Can you cite why?

I can cite the heavenly bodies, or our own solar system as a perfect example of a functioning, orderly system. How can the sun so strategically positioned from the earth that it's rays nourish us and not burn us? (but of course, we've got the greenhouse effect now). How does the earth rotate on its own at a specific constant rate and constant rotation? How could a complete human being so complex be able to come from just two cells (sperm and ova). How is it possible that it develps miraculously into an adult specie. Think about it. There must be an omniscient supernatural being who is really in-charge of all of this. What about you? What are the proofs that you can see all around you?

When I look at the universe I see love.....and to me that is a signiciant enough sign that there is a higher being.....or we would all resort to barbaric ways....I see the leaves of trees change colors and beautify the world...I see fields growing the things we need to eat to keep on living.....and I see wonderful things all around me that have been given to us by the loving hand of a great artist, father or mother...to take care of their children.

Hi there, I'm beginning to believe we are all intrinsically linked, such as Hinduism and Buddhism promote. The most interesting thing I came across recently was with regard to Quantum theory. (quantum is where things get really small i.e whats inside all of those molecules etc). They have found by the mere act of watching quantum particles, that the observation actually changes the way they act. Each quantum particle relates to another and another and so on in to what I can only at this stage call infinity. It is starting to suggest that we are all one, that is not just us, but all of the animal life, insects, fishes and fauna etc. In a sense this does give omnipresence, all of us being linked in to one true spirit it begs the question what is at the centre of it, what is it that holds us all together in this way? Crazy isn't thought that with the Hindu religion advising us of this and with it being one of the oldest in the world. Its kind of wonderful that science is finally catching up to prove this.

Hi, Hinduism being the oldest of religion indeed talks about "the inner souls of all being" as part of God - the supreme person; That we are all part of him. I am a catholic but I'm familiar with Dharma (righteousness), and the the various godheads - Vishnu, Kali, Brahma, Durga and shiva, the Principle of reincarnation and Karma...etc. Although I'm not an expert, I try to glean whatever I could from all of these beliefs. Our mentor stressed that Hinduism is a way of life. About Buddhism, I will always remember "The Middle Way". Everything should be done in moderation. These are wonderful thoughts that could be adapted by anyone. Thanks for that valuable contribution. I appreciate it a lot. All the best.

Thanks for your nice comment, I will have a look at the link later. I have never been very religious myself, but have always respected others beliefs. Also I am the same as you I try to glean info and from others beliefs and try to find common ground by looking objectively at the teachings. I find often there is much correlation between the beliefs and feel at one point we all believed in the same thing, but religion has been so diluted over history. It's shame when you look at the bible it not hard to pick anomalies from it. Also gospels seem to be historical documents/ or account of events and if you look between them you can see that they were written at different times and some contradict each other also. I think for myself Theism is the closest I come to a religious belief. I do, an have always believed in the power of nature and that everything is intrinsically linked in some way. In effect if we are all one spirit then in a sense we are all God, somewhere at the back of my memory I believe this is mentioned in some or most religious texts. I'm also under the impression that the word "man" in Sanscrit relates to the above? I sure one day we'll discover the truth, in the meantime there is much to be read and learned to allow us to make some sort of informed decision on belief.

Jenaisle, I find His Majesties great touch everywhere - behind everything we see, we do and we think even. There's a concrete evidence which is so common and yet so very strange! Think of that point of time - formation of embryo - it is the formation of living beings by accumulating inanimate ingredients. Our Thermodynamics Professor used to say - the greatest Heat Exchanger is the lung - so efficient yet so delicately designed, the greatest wonder is our heart, the pump that continues to circulate blood for the years. So many, so many evidences are there. You may explain a lot of them using science only to open up the door leading towards more complex puzzles.

Perfect example - the embryo forming into the adult human person. Yes, just by looking at our body - one can "see" the many evidences that a higher supernatural being is responsible. You're right, science keeps on discovering truths because it could never explain fully EVERYTHING...We often encounter in science books -" The etiology is still unknown..." Thanks for your vital input. All the best.
