PROVING GOD:

SEX, GOD, AND ENERGY

John Erickson


 The sex drive differs from the rest of these energy-seeking behaviors in that our physical survival is not threatened by its absence. Although it appears as a self-preservation drive in that it yields offspring, sex, in the heat of the moment, is sought without regard for personal well-being. And the "continuity of the species" is not what's on our minds during intercourse. It doesn't strengthen us or add to us materially. It just seems to exist within us as an indecipherable compulsion to seek-out people having particular shapes and gestures which, for no apparent reason, give us a reason to live or even kill.  Read More...




PROVING GOD:

GOD AS A NUTRIENT

John Erickson


CONCEPT:
THAT WHICH RESULTS IN GREATER HEALTH MUST BE "TRUE"
(or some portion therein)


In accepting the concept of God being "real", an important article needs to be added to the evaluating criteria:

That which causes human life to be healthy:
  • live longer
  • have better resistance to disease
  • greater mental stability in the face of adversity and more confidence in interacting with others
- that such a component can be classified as "nutrient".

Inasmuch as nature authored man with this "hunger" for an Eternal Supreme Being, it must be considered that such a being exists somewhere within the realm of one’s existence - as  we are not born with hungers for things which do not exist;  such is the nature of intuition throughout the animal kingdom.

If we only examine physical phenomena in determining the factors governing man’s existence, we can never learn anything beyond the death and decay that govern all things physical.

The "Spark of Life" that starts a human being’s existence: where does that come from?

"We know these impulses originate in the hypothalamus, others in the cerebral cortex…"

Fine.  Where did that impulse originally form in order to get to the cerebral cortex? 

Questions pertaining to the origin of life cannot be answered by confining our examination to merely physical phenomena, and  we cannot rule out any "supernatural" phenomena until such questions can be answered.

PROVING GOD:

IS THE BIBLE TRUE?

John Erickson


The Bible's accuracy is determined less by historical gauges than it is by Revelation Knowledge by the reader. Without a revelation from God, no one can understand a fact beyond a subjective, temporary meaning. Once a person has seen eternal life as a reality - one that's been made convincingly clear to him - all other details are meaningless. That person will then judge the "truth" in light of its relevance to living eternally with God. Someone else without that understanding will judge "truth" by its ability to support his ego, provide momentary comfort, or social acceptance: because those things are the highest realities in his world.
