He is The One God.
So what do you think about all this? Do you believe that the universe was created entirely for the purpose of mans existance?
I think that man's feeble little mind is incapeable of realizing his own existance's purpose. For example, if man was able to talk to ants you may ask him about a tree he is climbing "Do you think that the tree you are climbing is alive?" The ant would most likely reply,"No, of course not." Ask him "Why not" and he would say, "Because I have seen this tree all of my life and it has never moved or behaved or grown since I can remember. My father and his father say the same thing, so there is no way it is alive."
The ant is limited not only by his resources but his intelligence to find out the truth.
Now you look at human beings and how minute they are compared to the entire universe. We are less than an ant compared to a tree. We are less than a grain of sand compared to all the oceans of the earth. In the vastness of the entire universe and time, our existance is a billionth of a blink of an eye.
To think that we could figure out the meaning, and origin of our own existance is like the ant figureing out that the tree is actually alive.
I think that GOD is most people's best "guess" of our existance. What are true meaning is, I have no idea and I don't think that I will know until I die, then again maybe not even then.
I believe in God because I like what the bible stands for. I try to live my life by it's teachings and would love to believe that everything in it is true but I have serious doubts because it was written by man "supposeably" with God's help. Who knows?
