When we start to think outside the box and test the boundaries of limited understanding, this is when we can fully begin to realize that we may not know everything. There are those who will attempt to impress with their vast knowledge of a variety of topics but when it comes right down to it I just want to know the basic facts. Consider this, I was having issues with a solenoid for a garden tractor and, like a dope, I forgot to take pictures as I pulled the solenoid and the starter off the tractor. Part two to this, if enough time has gone by, I will forget or question myself on how to put it back together again. Long story made short, I could not remember which pole to put the positive wire on and I started to question myself as to how it all went back together. So, like all guys, I googled it and ended up even more confused and not at all confident. There is a lot of conflicting messages out there and numerous “experts” who will be more than happy to tell you how to do it even if they are bat crazy. We need to question things (science relies on this to move forward) but we all need to recognize that if the facts lead to a specific conclusion, we should really heed the wisdom even if it runs contrary to our own preconceived notions. An open mind is a wonderful thing, a closed mind leads to stagnation.
With all that said, consider this; God, three in one, is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. In other words, He is infinitely powerful in all creation, infinitely wise and infinitely everywhere. He is the Father of all creation, the Son is perfect in word and the Holy Spirit is with us always and forever. In John 1:1-5,
In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
And in Genesis 1:1-2
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
In the beginning, God, the Father, created and at that same moment, the Holy Spirit hovered over the surface and eventually breathed life into Adam. In the beginning was the Word, the Son of God. This from the word of God, witnessed to and faithfully followed for thousands of years. It has been studied, questioned and tested well before the thoughts of mankind had even begun to fully understand. I am not saying that science does not have a place in our world, but I am saying that the Word of God has just as much a right to play into the conversation. Many do not understand faith in God but faith in an all-powerful divine Creator makes a bit more sense than blindly following spaceships, aliens and zombies.
