In today’s world, there’s a variety of opinions about God. Throughout the ages, great thinkers have debated the issue ad nauseum – everyone from Socrates to Voltaire to the Jesus Seminar. World-renown scientists like Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein have also weighed in. Even atheists have expressed an opinion.
With everyone looking for him, why then is it so hard to find God? Well, one could rightly assume that it might be because he doesn’t want to be found. Even if the biblical stories are correct, God hasn’t made a personal appearance in over 2,000 years. He must be a very busy guy with a crowded social calendar then. I wonder if I could find him on Facebook?
Some scientists have moved on from Darwin and now embrace the theory of Intelligent Design. Accordingly, they have devised every known experiment to try and find God. Despite this, he still remains as elusive as ever. Heck, science can’t even find 96% of the universe (the so-called missing dark matter). Now, they’re at it again looking for something they have dubbed the god particle. Good luck with that.
It’s not that I don’t believe in God. I do. It’s just that it’s hard to embrace the biblical concept of God. I don’t know about you but I can’t conceive of an angry, jealous god who breaks his own commandments by lying to Eve in the Garden of Eden about the apple. More importantly, he violated his own first commandment on many occasions as described in various stories throughout the Bible, beginning in the beginning (Genesis). Also, are we supposed to believe that God punished man for eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge? After all, Adam and Eve admittedly were born without knowing good and evil so how were they supposed to know that disobedience was evil? What kind of a god would punish his children like that anyway?
Pre-biblical writings are perhaps even more informative than the Bible on this subject. The Seven Tablets of Creation, for example, is a much older and longer creation story than the Bible and many historians and theologians believe that parts of the Bible are based on that work. But for all of the talk about God, can anyone tell me exactly how to find him?
Maybe, just maybe then, we have been looking for him in all the wrong places. A clue may be found in the Book of John where Jesus says that no man has ever seen God. That contradicts any of the Bible stories about visitations from God – unless… the god from these stories was not the prime creator(first cause). That squares with the covenant story where Jehovah (supposedly God) says that he would agree to be the god of the Israelites if they chose him to be their god. Well, if you’re the prime creator there is no choice in the matter. Therefore, Jehovah could possibly be a lesser creator god, but he couldn’t very well be the prime creator, now could he? All of which explains why Jehovah told the Israelites to have no other gods before them. It also would explain the comment by Jesus, in the Gospel of Judas, that the disciples were praying to a false god. In this story, Jesus explains to Judas exactly who the creator gods (plural) were. I encourage everyone to read that account for themselves.
So just where do we look for this shy, elusive prime creator who I would argue has never come to the material world? Well, one thing that got the scientists going down this road of Intelligent Design is that when they probed into the sub-atomic world what they found was… well… nothing. Physical matter dissolved into a murky world of non-physical “stuff” and they then came to the realization that this non-physical world created the physical world of matter. Ergo, God, whoever or whatever he is, probably exists in this non-physical world. That’s great but from a scientific standpoint that’s about as far as they can go because science is built on observation and there is no known way to observe in a non-physical world. Enter the Human Genome Project.
Beginning in 1990, many of the world’s top scientists started one of the most ambitious scientific projects of all time – to fully explore man’s DNA. Some of their conclusions were absolutely startling. First of all, science had previously theorized that 90% of our DNA was simply useless, junk as they called it. The Human Genome Project, however, determined that all DNA in our body has a purpose and the primary purpose of that “junk” DNA was that it provided a network of human consciousness which is something best described as a living internet inside of each and every one of us. They believe that our DNA can literally communicate with all other DNA throughout all of creation, including other universes and dimensions. Information is exchanged by the DNA on both a conscious and unconscious level through a process which they call hyper-communication. They feel that it explains much of human paranormal activity, everything from intuition to psychic abilities.
Long before I had ever heard about hyper-communication I was receiving information from an unknown source (or sources) about things that I knew nothing about. Suddenly, overnight my knowledge exploded exponentially. I have reason to believe that this came about through the same hyper-communication process. I also believe that many famous people have had access to this process, including Paul McCartney, Beethoven and Albert Einstein (relating to his Theory of Relativity).
But what does hyper-communication have to do with God, you might ask. Well, I liken this hyper-communication to actually talking to God. Certainly the knowledge that I had received came from a higher power, well beyond my normal capabilities. In any event, I feel a connection to God that I didn’t have before and it validates much of what I believed God to be. But the really good news is that I have reason to believe that every person has the potential for “talking to God”. So tell me, have you found God yet and, if you have, have you talked to him lately?
