God's being does not depend on whether anyone believes it or not. God is!

The big bang theory is simply that--a theory. Besides, who knows, maybe that's just what God did at creation when he/she said: "Let there be light"! and BANG! "There was light." At a time when technological advances simply discover all the things that science just can't explain . . and the realization that we don't have the means as yet to really look beyond our own galaxy, It sounds so foolishly arrogant at this time to think that we could possibly see/measure or define something so obviously bigger than our puny intellect can perceive--even in theory. Not to mention that another 2 decades or so, we won't even know if anyone of us was right or wrong. I am remind of a philosophy professor who startled the class by saying: "God does not exist" Then when he was sure everyone was looking at him with astonishment (for it was after all a class on Christian philosophy and ethics) he continued with, "he is." Of course we can't prove the "existence" of God. After all we can't see, feel or hear him which is the common concept of proving existence.
Isn't much more liberating to believe in a creator and then proceed to discover all the wondrous things that are there? For me, it more astounding to think that clouds of cosmic dust just somehow managed to form themselves into suns, planets moons, blackholes, etc. on top of single cells forming themselves into humans, plants and all sorts of animals--all by their lonely selves, in the process making all those rules of nature like gravity.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. It is so nice to be able to see again. Thanks for all your prayers.
