Hello my friend!...
I am presently studying in the medical profession...
which has required that I take many classes involving a
science of one form or another. I would like to share what I
have been learning in college if I may... because I feel that
you have a great appreciation of science... along with its
rewards, fulfillments, and shortcomings.
Through my college science classes, (although much of my
obtained knowledge is yet juvenile; in need of correction and
"fine tuning"), I am discovering many wonderful "truths".
These truths being that everything is made up of neutrons,
protons, and electrons; with different bonding capabilities,
forming what we know of as the substance of all there is. I
am also learning that there are microorganisms, which, as we
are finding out, affect the biological and non-biological
worlds with a somewhat homeostatic balance. Even the
elements as we know them seem to adhere to specific cycles in
order to maintain a life supporting atmosphere by which we
Furthermore, I have been learning about the human body
and how the human organism is structured and how it
functions. Specific cells which form specific tissues; which
in turn, form specific organs; which in turn form the systems
in our body. I am learning that all these systems must
function together, maintaining a homeostatic environment; an
organism structured and functioning as a whole.
The benefits of this acquired knowledge within the
scientific realm are staggering! From the arrangement of
molecules by which we manufacture materials, and the genetic
capabilities of microbiological interventions (antibiotics
etc.), to the medical technology of today (organ transplants
etc.), we have come a long way in our abilities indeed!
Through all of my studies regarding the above
discoveries, I cannot help but come to the conclusion that
there is a Designer. Everything displays the expert
craftsmanship of a divine source. This is not quickly
refuted in any case.
Unfortunately, within my studies, I have also discovered
other not-so-interesting finds. I have been instructed by
some who profess that there are no absolutes. That there are
no fixed variables. I have also been informed by many of
these same individuals that there is no god. That through
the process of time, we have somewhat evolved to the finely
tuned specimen, which we know today, as the "naked ape".
This of course is just a figurative example of having evolved
from the Monera Kingdom, (or as is now being speculated, from
I feel at a great loss somewhat. With my new knowledge
of our scientific discoveries and technological advances, it
seems a waste to also discover that there is no god.
Have we become so foolish? Are there indeed no
absolutes, or is this just a new doctrine being lifted of the
ground by those who do not choose to regard God's absolutes
