The following is from a religious debate I had on FaceBook with an atheist. These are my honest beliefs. I've tried to articulate my thoughts in the most intelligible manner I could muster. I hope my words make sense to someone out there:
Life's so- called mysteries are unravelled piece by piece, era to era by what we've come to know as science, right? My belief is: the structure of the cosmos and life within it was established by divine order at creation, and man's never ending quest for absolute knowledge will never be achieved. Major discoveries in science, biology, physics, engineering, medicine, etc.
happen every few hundred years or so. Gunpowder, modern astronomy,navigation on the high seas, electricity, mechanized industrial equipment, the automobile, air travel, x-rays, penicillin,television,nuclear fission and fusion, space travel, the computer. How long will it take before the concepts of teleportation , telepathy and time travel are mastered by man? Another 1000 years maybe, then what's next? These so-perceived major advances are hollow achievements in that the true established order of what we know as our Universe cannot be fathomed, let alone controlled, by limited human understanding. In other words, man manages to push the envelope within the realm of his forever primitive(in the eyes of the Creator)understanding. Thus, man will continue to exist as the proverbial ant colony until time, as we know it, ceases to exist.
My sincere belief. You get the last word man, I'm done! ; )
