God Wrote Code and It Was A Good Day …

… Do you ever just wake up in those strange moods where you are phenomenally grateful for your certainty in the existence of God? Where everything you see and experience directly points back to His omnipotence like a thousand flashing neon signs? And you think, duh… who can possible not believe in God?

I mean, look at that sky. That tumultuous storm brewing on the horizon and the leaves on the trees turning over in anticipation the rain. And you just know, that’s no accident. The nature of that tree and it’s connection to the atmosphere… that right there was perfectly designed. And for something to be designed there must be a creator.

This life, this world and everything in it is no happy accident. We are no more formed from nothingness than you can expect to build a house by tossing brick and mortar randomly into the air. Clearly everything that inhabits this earth and sky is too intricately detailed and interconnected to suggest anything otherwise.

To those looking for proof, simply spend time outdoors closely observing. Take up hobbies with a scientific slant, like botany or anatomy. Or simply study Geometry. As Euclid pointed out, “the laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God”.

It’s like God wrote code.

    Lovely post. I would also suggest history of science, that catholics are not anti-science or pro-ignorance and have in fact for centuries pursued science and philosophy to greater understand and appreciate the wonder of God’s creation.

    Personally I love the Thomist approach that God has granted nature the power to bring about all things that exist and that it’s not necessary (and in fact somewhat unreasonable to believe) that God would have to step back into His own creation and tweak it a bit; he doesn’t need to fix what he made perfectly.

    This will help defeat the falsely held new atheist belief that Ours is a God of the gaps who is somehow lessened or negated by science.

    Recently a lot of atheist have happily proclaimed that the universe could emerge from nothing, spontaneously popping into existence from the quantum foam that lies beneath all existence.

    Actually, God did create everything from nothing (ex nihilo), including quantum physics and all the laws that all physics obey. So we can look into the supposedly God-negating quantum foam and see that, guys there’s an awful lot of something in your nothing.
