I’m not going to explain why the subject of religion and science came to me today (because it would take forever and sound overdone because I’ve already talked about it on another blog) but it got me thinking:
The scientific possibility that the Earth should even exist is 1 in 140 trillion.
That life forms would then evolve on Earth is 1 in 795 billion.
That they would evolve into mankind is 1 in 89 billion.
That mankind would be able to have the brainpower to create the alphabet and so start civilization is 1 in 12 billion.
That your parents should have crossed paths and decided to get together is a chance of 1 in 6 billion.
And that the single lucky sperm carrying the you that you are now would fertilize your mother’s egg is 1 in 90 million.
Realize how insanely lucky you are to be here. Realize that religion does not mean the negation of science and knowledge, and nor does science and knowledge mean the negation of religion. Because just like science opens our eyes to the immense wonder of all these mind-boggling and incontestable facts, it proves that such incomprehensible odds as FREAKING ONE IN 140 TRILLION can ever only be surmounted over and over and over by a one true God.
The people that tell you that sometimes you shouldn’t apply logic are wrong. Apply it as far as you can possibly go. Because then you’ll see the beauty of the fact that within the deepest, most meaningful, and scientifically logical facts are the most revealing truths about the universe, humanity, and its grand Creator.
All my love!
