A Mind Of My Own

Rated "G" by the Author.

Science has extended my sight and broadened my knowledge of creation and is material to my belief in God

Consciousness drifting in a sea of revelations.
Treasures of wondrous discovery, shrouded in mystery.

 Pride and arrogance hide my heart from understanding and death beckons.
Let wisdom from God reveal truth, so I may find life. 
 

 

The mind struggles to discern the truth from fantasy. Knowledge is ambiguous. Theories, hypothesis, beliefs, and philosophies are subjective. Facts and evidence lack objectivity due to controversial interpretations. We decide our truth from our own choices, which are often unduly influenced by social, cultural and authoritarian issues. Seeking truth requires gathering knowledge with an open mind, avoiding biased opinions and letting my own reasoning be my major guide to my conclusions. In contemplating creation, believing in God as creator is a decisive act that immediately put me at odds with the non-believing scientist. Believing in God is a major influence in my life and I believe that the truth and reality of this is worth exploring.

There is a need to boldly proclaim my reasoning for belief in God as creator. It is not from fear, or brain-washing, or a need for conformity, but rather a honest attempt at seeking the truth. I realistically see God’s hand in creation. I find evidence of creation by God clear and indisputable. How in the face of such a controversial topic do I presume insight over the many scholarly unbelieving minds? There are many reasons that I can not deny my beliefs. Most of these involve the discoveries of design in creation.

The intelligence of the design in creation is so visible and apparent that it is hard for me to imagine the resistant (hardened) mind that can't acknowledge this. Everything I studied led to more complexity and mysteries, and even more implication of intellect and purpose in design. Science was led down an unfathomable path as the universe became vaster and the theory of the big bang, the nucleosynthesis of elementary particles, black holes, dark energy and matter created additional unsolved puzzles. The complexity of life exploded with new discoveries in the physiology of the body and brain and the Human Gnome Project (HGP). I have given some substance to my belief in God in my articles on the relationship of the photon to the eye (Visions of Creation), the science of cosmology (So Large, so Majestic), and life (Life: God’s Perfect Design), but the reality of my belief in God lies is in the finer details. Here are a few of the more significant and decisive details:

The search for a beginning of the universe became very complex. The accelerating expansion of the universe and cosmic background radiation (CBR), and discoveries from 'eyes', like the Hubble telescope, illuminated the big bang theory of the initial creation of everything (which really does infer a causER of the effect) . To speculate that creation is mindlessly developed is foolish in view of the fact our brilliant mind can't even come close to figuring out how things initially started from nothing.

The fact that almost all elements are made from the stardust of supernovae is amazing. All life needs these elements. The excessive energy for nuclear fusion to create the heavier elements was problematic and the explosion of a star was a miraculous solution. Lucky for man that when we created a car we didn’t have to wait for steel, glass, rubber and refined fuel to randomly and spontaneously appear.

The genetic mapping of Man (Human Genome Project) and other life is revolutionizing our understanding of genes. A new world of discovery into how genes function in health and disease has changed the language of genetics with terms like: PCR, Microarrays, Genomics, Proteomics, Pharmacogenetics, etc.. I believe that the creation of DNA, as the ONLY template for life, implies there is only ONE powerful, creative God. No scientific explanations even come close to understanding how such complexity developed from the chaos of elements and we are only on the frontier of how they work..

My brain controls who I am. Nothing matches the ingenuity and complexity of the brain of Man. A new age of neurobiology is exploding with studies of the biochemistry of the brain, mapping brain functions, cognitive studies, and behavioral genetics. A neural network in the brain surpasses the complex network of galaxies found in the cosmos. The gift of intellect is a path to believing in God. This capacity to believe is rational and reasonable. I do not believe in blind faith.

Perhaps the most significant factors of belief in God lie in what we don’t know. The questions and gaps in human knowledge are numerous and leave blank spaces that for now are best explained by divine creation. Science may have answers to some of these but they will be like DNA, which explained the mechanism for hereditary, but left a bigger hole to explain DNA. Here are a few:

Where is the evidence for "strings" and "membranes’, parallel and multiverses, other dimensions, the sparticles of supersymmetry, the Higgs-boson, the MACHO’s?

Where are all the missing links of evolutionary theory?

Where do the laws of physics come from?

What is gravity, time, photons, neutrinos, dark energy and matter, a singularity?

I believe that God exists and is my Creator. I believe that the knowledge of God comes with the understanding, received in my heart, from the evidences I have seen and heard. Science has extended my sight and broadened my knowledge of the scope and wonder of creation and is material to my belief in God. While the vision of creation assures me of the reality of God, it is the Bible that leads me to the identity of God. Here I "Lean not on my own understanding" Proverbs 3:5, but rely on God to give me wisdom.
