If today’s letter-to-the-editor doesn’t impress you, dear reader, then you’re hopeless. It appears in the Deseret News, of Salt Lake City, the capital of Utah.. The letter is titled Evidence for God’s existence is everywhere, and the newspaper has a very active comments section.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Hayden. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Religion is a very important, powerful aspect in a lot of people’s lives.
So true! Then he says:
Everywhere we look we see acts of God — some big, some small. For example, the world we live in today could not possibly just happen by chance. The way everything works together and the balance between all of the organisms on this planet was directly from the hands of God.
Yes — oh yes! It couldn’t possibly happen by chance. After that, Hayden tells us:
Miracles are another act of God that often have no scientific explanation.
Ooooooooooooh! Hayden has evidence of miracles? Yes! Here it comes:
There are so many things that happen in our day-to-day lives that can be classified as miracles. There is little scientific evidence to support any of these things, and yet they still happen.
Jeepers, he’s right! Let’s read on:
I encourage all people to consider believing in a higher power, regardless of what it is.
He’s remarkably open-minded. And now we come to the end:
There is far too much in this world that can’t be explained by science to ultimately rule out the existence of God.
You gotta admit, dear reader — Hayden makes some powerful arguments.
