A few days ago I read about experiments in Dakota underground mines that were looking for “dark matter” with the quote from one of the scientists saying though they had never been able to detect or have any indication of dark matter even existing, they knew it was there. They hoped to find it in this deep well in a vat of hundreds of gallons of pure water.
The next day, I read about some still trying to get prayers stopped at openings of local, state and federal meetings, claiming it made them feel uncomfortable or it crossed the line of separation of church and state. They dismiss the precedence of more than 200 years of the procedure of asking God to bless their efforts to establish and lead our nation as a beacon of hope for a troubled world. From our first leaders, federal, state and local, prayers have always preceded important events. Prayers not only seek wisdom from above but set the tone of honesty, dignity and sincerity of the events.
I got thinking about faith; the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen. Which takes more faith: existence of God or existence of “dark matter?” I have never seen God yet evidence of him is all around me in animate objects like the created earth to animate objects like created man, animals, plants. Scientists, however, have never detected, observed or found evidence of the existence of dark matter, yet hypothesize that it exists. What great men of faith they are. If only they could turn their faith towards heaven.
I believe. Do you?
