Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Loveliest of lovely things are they On earth, that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.

Hands of Creation

Artwork: Hands of Creation by Evelyn Patrick

I’m really not sure what to think about the questions that transcend our existence on this Earth, namely, is there anything that actually does transcend our existence on this Earth or do we just die and end up food for the worms and maggots?

You think of all the monumental, life-changing, earth-shaking questions we have to deal with in this life, and all of it pales in comparison to the question of whether or not there is an afterlife. Unfortunately, short of some documented resurrection miracle, there is no possible way we’ll ever get a definitive answer on whether the afterlife does or doesn’t exist. And with apologies to all my religious friends, your beliefs in the afterlife are built entirely on faith.

The part that gets me is the fact that most atheists have no idea that their beliefs require just as much faith as the faith of the believers. An atheist will tell you that they would never believe in anything that can’t be analyzed, quantified and computed, with a smug certanty that there could be nothing in this universe that lies beyond the reach of their scientific instruments. To me, atheists really do seem like an arrogant lot for the most part.

I can understand agnosticism, because if you leave your heart out of the debate, you can find no more evidence to prove that a Creator does exist than you can find evidence that a Creator doesn’t exist, so if you’re determined not to take a leap of faith, agnosticism is the only logical way to go.

Most atheists seem oblivious to the fact that they’re making just as much of a leap of faith in their belief in the absence of a Creator as the believers themselves.

Dressing themselves up in a robe of scientific method, hailing their fellow atheists who have made some of the greatest achievements of the scientific world and telling themselves that they live in a world of cool, calculated, rational thinking, a world of weights and measures and tangible things that can be proven, the atheist will say, “Show me the proof that your God exists!”

As if the most obvious answer in the world wouldn’t be to ask the atheist to prove that your God doesn’t exist.

To me, it comes down to a simple question of, “Have you ever seen anything in this world that was created without a creator?”

Everything springs from something. Are you going to try to tell me the whole universe just poofed out of nowhere? Whether the universe is eternal or started with the flip of a switch, it seems obvious to me that it had to be created by an Eternal Creator.

Which leads me to a quote by Ronald Reagan . . .

Sometimes when I’m faced with an unbeliever, an atheist, I am tempted to invite him to the greatest gourmet dinner that one could ever serve, and when we finished eating that magnificent dinner, to ask him if he believes there’s a cook.

  • ROMANS (1:16-20)- 16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes- the Jew first and also the Gentile. 17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
    18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

    ROMANS(10:9-13)- 9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.

    1 CORINTHIANS (1:18-19) 18 The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. 19 As the Scriptures say, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent”

    ROMANS (16:27)- All glory to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen.

  • This much I can totally agree with:

    For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

  • In the beginning(time). God created(Bara) …which is Hebrew for :to fashion/create out of

    nothing)the heavens(space) and the earth (matter) . Genesis. 1:1

    Scientists , in the 20th century are just learning what Gods word said thousands of years ago.

    The universe had a beginning . But, they don’t concede, that matter was created out of

    nothing, they say : there was an incredibly small particle and then it exploded into what we

    see now- Flowers, People, Fruit trees,Shakspeare,Mozart,Quantum Physics.

    Speaking of Qauntum Physics… we are learning that photons know what other photons are

    doing instantaneously. They actually communicate at faster than the speed of light!

    Quantum Physics has actually driven people to suicide because it defies logic and Scientists

    especially can’t handle that. It’s been said : the more we know , the more we realize we

    don’t know. The mind of God is infinte and to try and understand his creation can take us

    into complexities beyond what we can perceive. These are just a few things that show the

    fingerprints of God. There are also many verses throughout the Bible that talk about God

    streching out the heavens …( our expanding universe) How did those peasant sheep herders

    who wrote the Bible know these things!

    THE FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART THERE IS NO GOD…. PSALM 14:1

    Not so much that they are fools , but their HEART is decietful . They don’t want to be accountable to a HOLY creator.

    Does God exist? First travel throughout the entire universe , and then if you don’t find Him

    you can be an Atheist. Until then just call yourself an Ignostic. At least then your being

    honest.

    and a sinful sick world of lust , crime,pride and follow the evil one who tempts you
    and leadeth you to the dark side where he lives there is no truth but a
    great ocean of Lies. it is written that,
    the simple who believeth in the Good and
    kindest merciful GOD ,who is in HEAVEN and who has always
    been there for each one of us, regardless of religion and other secret sects
    will not be condemned but given a transfer easily into heaven
    without a doubt. so long he or she accepts even once that the true
    GOD our Father who exists and lives in HEAVEN til the end of time… will certainly
    be given a chance?

    I believe with all my heart and strength and mind that GOD
    truly exists and I will see him because I Truly have full faith in him
    without a doubt……………… and so can you
