Letter to the editor: Proof of God’s existence

In response to the letter “Atheism & politics,” stating that “we live in the information age, and the more you know, the less religious you become”: Hopefully the quest for information continues with an open mind — as there is more than ample scientific evidence available now that fully supports the existence of God.

For example, the physical, chemical and gravitational properties of our planet and atmosphere to sustain life (virtually impossible to occur by itself, without a grand designer); the numerous medical miracles at Lourdes; the tilma of Juan Diego at Guadalupe; the Eucharistic miracles over the centuries — consecrated Hosts transforming into human heart tissue. All scientifically verified. Just to name a few. Check them out.

A little time in research with an open mind can open the door to some wondrous discoveries. A leap of faith may still be needed, but with all the credible evidence now available, the leap’s been reduced to a mere step — into the embrace of a loving God and Savior.

Conversely, and sadly, studies show the correlation of depression and bad endings with religiously unaffiliated persons. Nobody wants that.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
