Bert Amsing Yes, the question is how to accomplish that widening of our circles of compassion…..i.e. more love as a virtue to all without discrimination….how does the human dilemma factor in….that we do not do what is loving even for ourselves more often than not….the perverseness of the human condition needs to be dealt with somehow…..this is the great dilemma of human existence. We can see the solution but we have a hard time getting there….education helps, reducing poverty helps, but the truth is that love must be a virtue before it can be a solution and our human love does not appear to be strong enough….who will help us overcome? Thank God, there is power in Christ through the Holy Spirit to overcome evil and promote love…..

“Maybe so,” I said. “At first glance it would seem to indicate your presence rather strongly. But many scientists simply don’t want to go there and they come up with all sorts of other explanations.”
“Really? Like what?”
“Well, it started with Einstein’s repulsive force, which simply didn’t stand up to scrutiny and then the steady state universe or “continual creation” theory and even the “bouncing universe” idea where the universe reduces to zero volume and then bounces back.”
“What makes it bounce?”
“Exactly. It puts you right back to the question of a creator, or bouncer, I suppose. But anyway, those were mostly attempts before the final elements of the Big Bang theory were confirmed in 1992. Now it seems that most people are maintaining a “wait and see” attitude.”
“What are they waiting to see?”
“I think that they are hoping to find a unified field theory that can describe exactly what happened in that first split second when you released your power.”
“How will that help them figure out what happened “before” the power was released?”
“I don’t think they really know. They are just hoping for some kind of breakthrough,” I said.
“It sounds like they have a lot of faith that science will come up with something.”
“One thing is for sure,” I said. “The shoe is on the other foot now. Science is not so sure of itself anymore. Scientists are more careful about making sweeping conclusions about their view of the world.”
“Well, that’s a good thing, isn’t it?”
“Yes, it is,” I said. “Their predisposition against the supernatural has been put to the test and more scientists are making a distinction between their science, their philosophy and their metaphysics.”
“Beyond physics. About you, and the origin of the universe, and whether or not we have a purpose or meaning. All of the big questions in life.”
“So everything is as it should be then?”
“Well, not quite. There’s still the other side of the picture.”
“You mean there’s more?”
“Well, just the design and intelligence that the world seems to have. It seems hard to believe in the kind of evolutionary chance that could result in the world as we see it and experience it.”
“Only if there is no God. If you speak up, they would be completely discredited.”
“But I did speak up.” He paused. “What more could I say?”
I shook my head. It was hard to accept. But he was right.
“So, again, it is not a question of doubt in my existence,” he said, “or knowledge about me but one of trust. Just as it was at the beginning.”
His teaching was gentle, but insistent.
