Today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, so we’ll use only her first name, which is JoAnn. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
This is a confirmation of the article in the Dec. 21 Viewpoints section regarding Pope Francis’ recent affirmation of the plausibility of the Big Bang. This theory, as the pope indicates, does not deny the existence of God, but in fact, requires God’s prior existence for creation.
You already know what the Pope said, and you also know that it wasn’t anything new for Catholics, but we’ll link to our post about it anyway: Pope Francis, Evolution, & the Big Bang. Then JoAnn goes way beyond the Pope. She says:
Science today has demonstrated that perhaps an infinite amount of energy is required to produce even the basic building blocks of the universe.
What??? Let’s read on:
Energy by definition is “the ability to do work.”
Okay. Now what will JoAnn do with that? Brace yourself, here it comes:
To my mind, love is the greatest force of energy, and love is the very definition of God.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! She continues:
Perhaps the eternal union in and of itself of the three persons of the Triune God (Father, Son and Spirit) results in the creation and the release of the energy needed for creation – the Big Bang.
Wow — JoAnn has solved the problem of the origin of the Big Bang! But she’s not done yet. Here’s more:
Isn’t this re-created in a very finite way when a man and woman unite in love and procreation?
[*Curmudgeon blushes*] This is a shocking perspective on the Big Bang! And now we come to the end:
We are indeed “created in the image and likeness of God.” We may actually mirror God’s action of creation!
Yes. Yes!! And perhaps, with all the human activity of that sort going on all the time, it also explains the Multiverse. Verily, dear reader, this letter is a great addition to our collection.
