There is a physical world (Caesar’s) and a spiritual world (God’s) and so far human science does not understand how they interact. We know they interact in many pervasive, millennium-spanning ways across humanity. For example, most humans experience love, insatiable curiosity about God and life, conscience, etc. (Yes, there are exceptions.) If the universe were randomly assembled, as some agnostics and atheists imagine, then how is it that most humans across eons of time, distance and language share these and other common, non-physical experiences? Clearly, something non-random is acting on us.
In the physical world, our knowledge is very, very limited. For example, in NASA’s words, “Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter – adds up to less than 5% of the universe.” We cannot see or measure the dark energy and dark matter that together make up about 70% of the universe. Dark matter and dark energy are catchall concepts for what we don’t know and don’t understand.
The Hubble Space Telescope observes the universe is expanding and accelerating. However, according to all science known to man, gravity should be slowing the expansion of the universe. But it is not. No human knows how to explain this physical reality. But something is still causing it, something is causing the accelerating expansion of the universe.
In summary then, so far humans cannot explain pervasive and commonly experienced non-physical realities, nor can humans explain about 70% of physical reality. But, we do have a guide book we can study which is given to us from the spiritual world and passed down through the ages. In the most agnostic, skeptical case, if the book is not derived from the spirit world, at least we know that people pass down knowledge that they have found to work.
Therefore, since we know we are lost, since we know we are idiots unable to connect the dots of our reality, and since at least we have reason and logic commonly shared among many (but not all) humans, then our only rational alternative is to follow the guide book. Not following the book would be irrational and random. Since what we observe is not random, then we would be stupid to act randomly, like wandering around in the dark looking for something unknown, rather than standing under the light of the streetlamp and studying that which we do have and using it as a guide. We once were lost, but now we are found. We need to understand the Good Book. What are you waiting for?
