"The Bible tells men how to go to Heaven, not how the Heaven goes." --attributed to Galileo.
Dear Sabine, while looking at this picture, I was reminded of a little story I heard in school...
There’s an old story of St. Augustine walking along the beach contemplating the Trinity. Up ahead he saw a little boy digging a hole in the sand. The boy then ran out into the waves, scooped up a bucket of water, and ran back to pour it into the hole. He did this a few times until finally Augustine approached him and asked, “Boy, what are you doing?”
“See that ocean out there?” the boy asked. “I’m going to pour that ocean into this hole.”
“That’s impossible,” said Augustine. “You cannot fit the ocean in that tiny hole.”
The boy looked up at him and replied, “And neither can you, Augustine, fit the Trinity in that tiny little brain.” The story goes on to say that the boy then disappeared, as apparently he was an angel.
Religion/Faith is a mystery that does not have to be solved by the human mind. It provides the answer to the most important question of all: How do we get to heaven when we die? The answer is simple: Jesus.
Now, please understand that other questions are trivial compared to that. Questions like "How do the heavens go about in space?", "How old is the Universe?", "How did Man evolve?", etc. These questions could only be answered by the tools of human intellect: Science, Mathematics, etc. Since they are frivolous compared to the most important question of all, please don't bother asking priests or pastors about them. Instead, ask your math and science teachers. as in, Kulitin nyo sila.
Religion/Faith, does not require proof, Dear Kids. While science demands it.
