I recently read that the much noted physicist Stephen Hawking, along with his co-author, physicist Leonard Mlodinow, wrote in his new book, The Grand Design, that a god is not necessary to create a universe and that, given gravity, a universe can create itself quite naturally, without the need for any supernatural intervention.
Come on, Mr. Hawking, what has gotten into that otherwise brilliant brain of yours! A god is obviously not necessary to create a universe, but, when you get right down to it, are science and facts really all that important? I mean, where would we be without our Gods? Lost. That’s where.
Who would we pray to if we didn’t have our Gods? How could we justify mass smiting without a god to tell us to smite people in His, Her or Its name? How would you prevent the economy from collapsing if no one felt the need to exchange gifts on religious holidays? And, without our Gods, how would we fill the time we currently spend praying, going to services, thinking of excuses not to go to services, and celebrating religious holidays? We can’t all spend our time studying physics, now can we?
The Wealth of Infinitiaty: Proof of the gods’ Grand Design
Besides, there must be Gods. There are plenty of proofs of Gods on the Infinitiaty Web site. But never mind those proofs. Answer me this: If there aren’t any Gods then how can you explain why the Church of Infinitiaty is so rich? Clearly, God One or one of the other Gods must be making us rich. Talk about a grand design. There’s one for sure.
Think about it. People could spend their money contributing to their own happiness and wellbeing. They could give their money to deserving people friends, family or strangers, whether local or foreign, who, through no fault of their own, are in dire straights. They could give it to scientists seeking treatments and cures for dread diseases. Or they could give it to people who are trying to bring peace to a troubled world.
Instead, they send their money to the Church of Infinitiaty. Why? Clearly there is only one explanation. A higher force, namely a deity, is directing them. And considering the vast number of people sending enormous donations, this heavenly direction of funds is beyond just one God. There must be many Gods helping to enrich the Church of Infinitiaty.
So, Mr. Hawking, you may be right. A god may not be necessary to create a universe. But intuitive people know, without the need for thought or study, that there must be not only one God, but also an infinite number of Gods. And facts can’t deprive of us that no matter how genuine they may be.
