Welcome to the “Bracing Truth” Blog. This site will be explore the vastness of religion and that of atheism (or agnostic as I will refer to here-on-out). Both the religious and non-religious have substantial claims of miracles. Whether the concept of divine creation, or evolution each in its own respects is incredible. Is there really a God, an intelligent being who created all the heavens and the earth? Are we descendants of monkeys? These are the questions that influence many peoples way of life, cultures, beliefs, and traditions. I will try to keep this as objective as possible, but as a forewarning, it will be biased to the scientific perspective.
“In the Beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth,” this common line is the first line in the Old Testament. As common as it might sound I find it difficult to believe that we (as humans) are so self-pretentious to assume the beginning of all was with the creation of the earth. Science has proven more ways then not that the universe vastly precedes the Formation of the earth. The explanation of a divine creature 5000 years ago is a wonderful explanation for the ways of earth. In the times before science this religious view was phenomenally popular (understandably so), but now, today in 2008 quiet the contrary is true. Science has given us proof and EVIDENCE for the formation of earth, occurrence of human, why bad things happen to good people and vice versa. How can our life be dictated by God. I say his work of earth would be a failure if it was in-face created by something so advanced complex and superior to us.So I'll ask why God... There seems to be so many other explanation's to our world, but God by far is the easiest and simplest, yet most implausible. The Romans, Greek, Jews, Christians, Buddhists to name a few all have their. Next post will investigate coexistence of the many religions.
