It’s an election year. And we are probably all aware that the hot button this year is ‘marriage equality’ or ‘defense of marriage’ . . . depending on which side you are on. Read more »
It seems most of us wish to see proof of the divine, but rarely do we ever find it. Or maybe it’s there all the time and we just don’t see it.
This may be a lofty goal: to find irrefutable evidence of something beyond ourselves. And we all may find it in different places. For example, my friend, Alex, has some Calvin Klein bath towels which he takes as proof of God’s existence, because they just get softer and softer each time he washes them. As someone in the arts, the science of soft fibers is lost on him and the very fact that these towels exist is a tribute to a higher power. (Maybe it’s really a tribute to a mother who bought cheap towels when he was a kid, but whatever.)
You have to take revelations like these with the proverbial grain of salt – or perhaps the whole shaker – because Alex also believes that tomatoes are proof of Satan’s existence. (For some reason ketchup and the occasional spaghetti sauce are acceptable, but maybe this falls under what we all categorize as ‘necessary evil’)
It’s hard to find proof of a higher order to things. This is why religions are so tangled. A little hard and fast evidence would go a long way to setting things straight. But we all have different definitions of what we need to see. Some believe in angels and clouds, some in 72 virgins, while others think no one in their right mind would consider a virgin a reward.
