Don-- I totally agree that there is an uncanny synchronicity in all the functions of the universe--

It's not just the eclipse thing, simply the fact that the earth is covered with life in the middle of cold space-- that also would seem to be "proof of god."

the fact that nautilus shells are based on a structural pattern that replicate in galaxy formations...that's uncanny.

Even quantum mechanics and subatomic particles--the whole realm of the 'quanta' is god-like. They sometimes refer to the Higgs-boson as the 'god particle'.

Did you know where they get helium? They drill for it. Now that is weird. Proof of god---? Maybe, maybe not.

Some things are 'self evident' some require 'faith'

There is a grand energy at work that is able to generate the appearance of a reality. Philosophically, I don't say "god" as much as I refer to "The A.U.F.". The "AUF" is the All-Encompassing Universal Field"

If the philosophical "AUF" is really "GOD", then we're on the same page.

But, I would never attempt to pin human qualities on the "AUF"--- The All-Encompassing Universal Field allows me to experience a 'reality'--- Beyond that, I can't verify anything. (full circle, back to "Faith")

I tend to think of the "Grand Scheme" of which I seem to be a small part in terms of Zoastrianism. There just might be a cosmic battle between "Good" and "Evil" on a grand scale I cannot understand. (much like the "force" in Star Wars)

If we can agree that the AUF is God, and that there is a "Force" behind things that we don't understand... I still think that is a giant leap to pinpoint an individual and say that "He is God"

Monty Python's life of Brian.... Great movie.

Back to the Force-- If there is this AUF, God, or "Force" that makes everything happen, how can you put a human face on it?

Saying that "Ben Kenobi Understands the 'Force'" is a lot different than saynig "Ben Kenobi is God"

Mohammed, Jesus, Yahweh, Ben Kenobi (Yes, Jedi Knights actually a registered census demographic in Britian)...None of those people can come close to being God, because, "God", if there is one, is not a person, but a "Force" which we can scarcely understand.

God is that which I see before me. It's that simple I see the A.U.F. Everything I see and experience is a reflection of "God" -- But that's a lot different than thinking god is (ow was) a person.
