To the editor:
Having read and appreciated the “Understandings” expressed in the letters by Carl Burkhead and Graham Kreicker, I would like to share some of my own.
In 1947, I was a freshman in high school, and the first day of science class the teacher said “The Bible says God created the heavens and earth but does not say how God did that. Through science we will discover how God did that.” The Bible says creation took seven days. God’s seven days could be seven million or seven billion of Earth time. If evolution is how God creates then so be it. God has spiritual and natural laws, and God creates with love and harmony through those laws.
Romans 1:20 of the Bible says that people have no excuse for not knowing the nature of God because God’s creation through God’s visible and invisible energies have made it plain. Scientists are coming to understand through the string theory that everything in the universe comes from one energy source, God. We have received more insight from the CERN Large Hadron Collider giving us more information how the universe is made, how God works.
The Bible also says people are made in the image of God. So if all people come from one energy source, then we are all connected in spirit and consciousness. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could concentrate on our spiritual nature to lead us to work together in love and harmony? Maybe we could eradicate negativity and violence in our world today.
