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.
