Sometimes I judge people by how much of The Princess Bride they can quote.
fun fact At my cousin’s wedding ceremony, his brother recited this to them as the best man speech and everyone started laughing and i think the bride started to cry
If this is not recited at some point during my wedding I will be greatly disappointed.
Because that’s literally the only worldview that makes sense. God is reflected in everything that He creates, and without Him, this whole system breaks apart.
I believe in God because He exists. Just like I believe that my wife exists. I talked to them both today. I appreciated the sunset that God made and the instagram picture that my wife made. To see that picture and not believe that someone created it would be foolish.
So you see your god reflected in disease, illness, heredity diseases, disability, insects that perform traumatic insemination, animals that perform sexual cannibalism, birds that destroy another birds eggs so they can steal the nest, parasitoid’s that kill their host?
There’s obviously something terribly wrong that’s happened with the world. You and I, along with every other person have a sense of “rightness” and what “should be.”
God created everything and at that moment it was all “right” and how it “should be.” Then rebellion entered the world when a part of creation used it’s God-given free will to turn traitor to His design. This had a huge chain reaction effect through the whole earth, and now instead of a good version of creation we’re left with a perversion.
So pumped for the day when God sets things straight. He’s already doing it in little chunks through those who want to see His will done.
