Does it MAKE SENSE to believe in a God?Easter Island,Pacific OceanThere are literally hundreds of these heads scattered over the island. No one knows why.Stories say that they were made by some early people who lived there, called the Rapa Nui.You would probably say that I was crazy to claim that these hundreds of rocks all eroded by chance and just happened to turn out the same way.But no one has ever seen the Rapa Nui. What if I told you that the Rapa Nui never existed?Would you believe me if I told you that instead all these heads just formed this way by chance? What would you say if I said they are the product of thousands of years of rain, sun, heat, and cold that randomly formed all these rocks to appear like identical heads?Why would it not make sense to believe such a claim as that?What about these rock formations in Arizona, USA? They also resemble recognizable things. Yet it is logical to believe that they were formed by chanced erosion.Mexican HatThe MittensSo what is the difference between these carved rocks and these carved rocks?These rocks have order and pattern, similar textures, and symmetrical balance. In other words, these rocks contain COMPLEX DESIGN.The answer is quite logical actually.COMPLEXITY is evidence that something did not happen by chance.No one ever argues that the Easter Island heads were formed all by themselves. It is always just assumed and accepted by scientists and researchers that they were MADE by someone.It is just a reasonable assumption to believe that they were PLANNED and DESIGNED.This leads us to this next question: These dead, unmoving rocks?Or these living, breathing, moving, human beings?The HUMANS of Course!!Which is more complex?So why do so many scientists who agree that the Easter Island Heads have been DESIGNED and carved by some people at some point in time...then continue to argue that human beings have NOT been PLANNED AND DESIGNED?Where is the LOGIC in that?It is NOT Scientific Evidence that says humans have evolved by chance. Nor is it LOGIC.So why do you think people came up with this theory if it is neither believable because of experiment or Logic?Evolutionary THEORY (not FACT) has not come about because of Darwins scientific experiments.You cannot do experiments on evolution between species it is impossible.Evolutionary Theory has come about by Darwins and other scientists interpretations of INCOMPLETE DATA caused by the use of limited scientific instruments.but he was unable to recognize the complexity that is now continually being discovered everyday by scientists.Darwin saw simple similarities among various speciesEven today, no scientist should ever claim to have ALL the answers.Creation is much too complex for anyhuman to ever completely understand.Unfortunately when Darwin was observing all the similarities within species, he must not have been considering a Designer God who loves BEAUTY.Because when we remember the basic Principal of Beauty:UNITY =HARMONY...We can explain why there are so many similar species.VARIETY +When we look at nature we can easily see: Variety (of species) + Unity (similar body structures) = Harmony (Beauty in Nature)+And also when we look at our world we can easily see that anything that is BEAUTIFUL comes about by PLANNING and DESIGN. Bringing Variety and Unity together in Harmony NEVER happens by chance.So now the question to you remains: If it makes more sense to assume that someone had to have made the Simple (and not overtly Beautiful)Easter Island Headsdoes it not make even MORE sense to assume that someone had to have made aBEAUTIFULLY COMPLEX being like YOU and everyone else?BELIEF IN GOD IS LOGICAL!Does it MAKE SENSE to believe that The BIBLE is the TRUE WORD OF GOD?Who do you believewhen you are told different stories?From: http://www.adl.org/main_International_Affairs/ahmadinejad_words.htmIran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in his Own Words Posted: March 12, 2010Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitic and anti-Israel viewsplace him and the Iranian regime among theforemost threats to Jews and the state of Israel.Ahmadinejad repeatedly demonizes the state of Israel and openly calls for its destruction at every opportunity.Most notoriously, hedescribedIsrael as a "fake regime" that "must be wiped off the map."HetermedZionists "the most detested people in all humanity" andcalled the extermination of six million Jews during World War II"a myth," claiming that Jews have played upNazi atrocities during the Holocaustin a bid to extort sympathy for Israel from Europeangovernments.Ahmadinejad'svirulently anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric and Holocaust denialare oftenmatched by other Iranian leaders, and the Iranian regime itself has continued to sponsor anti-Zionism conferencesand pseudo-academic lectures and exhibitsquestioning the fact of the Holocaust.This report offersa selected, year-by-year compilation of Ahmadinejad's statements on Jews, the Holocaust and Israel in his own words.Who does it make more sense to believe?An educated president of a country who still lives today?A little girl who had little education and lived a long time ago?ORWho lived closest to the time of the event?Iranian President Mahmoud AhmadinejadAnne FrankORIs there anything that would give them reason to lie about the event?Iranian President Mahmoud AhmadinejadAnne FrankORAre there any other reliable writings that agree with either person?Iranian President Mahmoud AhmadinejadAnne FrankORAre there any places or objects still around today that fit with either persons story?Iranian President Mahmoud AhmadinejadAnne FrankORAuschwitz Concentration CampSo who does it make more sense to believe?Iranian President Mahmoud AhmadinejadAnne FrankORWhen it comes to studying Ancient Religious Documents, we can do the same thing. HINDU - RIG VEDA CHRISTIAN - BIBLE KRISHNA - BHAGAVAD GITA MUSLIM - QURANCompare the oldest documents that you can find,such as the Dead Sea Scrolls.With other ancient books such as this old book of Krishna called the bhagavad gita.These comparisons can be made with any other book from any other Religion.**************************************
