There have been so many lies and many deceptions have crawled into the cocoon stipulated for the acquisition of knowledge. Baseless facts have been postulated into theories and illogical assumptions have been culminated into laws, all in the name of learning. However, the study of nature remains pure and fresh just as it had been in the beginning of days.
The philosophy behind scientific knowledge is simple but the intricacies that showcase its byproducts and unexpected results are mystifying. Thus, the question, is there possibly more to science? Though works of scientists and philosophers have had a similar bearing over time and through the ages, it is not so difficult to see their varying points of view. While philosophers tend to postulate the theories that backup the acquisition of knowledge, scientists have in every wise borrowed this knowledge to develop the cultural traditions existing in human communities. Cultural traditions that have solved physical, social and economical problems in more ways than one could ever mention in the chronicles of man let alone, in the brief lines of this account.
As history teaches and portrays, no precise facts and happenings really showcased the innate tendencies of the inclinations of the men behind the profound meanings and definitions we have given to existence heretofore. In other words, the cravings and desires of the vendors of human achievements were not exemplified in any accurate historical paradigm. From religious books to the voluminous encyclopedias, what these doyens did in their solitary confinements and lonesome lives have not been utterly understood; hence many suggestive assumptions and consequently, insinuations have been aired pertaining to them.
No doubt, they must have read books and studied nature at large. In so doing, they must have gained an unshakeable base of trust in their findings. At the risk of repetition, perhaps, there was more to these men whose achievements have blazed a trail and set a pace in the revolution of humanity. What if these pathfinders whose names are written in gold on the walls of discoveries found a common base of inclination? Not in a mystical sense, but in a figurative way that can be easily explained with the use of conventional words.
Though Godís role has suffered a seeming conflict with scientific and mystical knowledge as man continues to break through every threshold penetrating into a new world order, Godís rule and dominion is incontestable. Albeit it appears that man has reached a height before the Fates such that he can gracefully neglect every form of God-factor that lies intricately in the existence of humanity, Godís power is insurmountable.
Whether or not a greater force has played a huge role in the numerous wonders of our age isnít the crux. The ultimate question is this, what factor counts most in the little achievements that accumulated over time and through the years to define what and who we are today as a people. The trophies, medals, plaques and awards all lined up on the shelf of self-esteem pointing to our momentous victories; are they pointers to what weíve achieved or what a greater force beyond the immediate comprehension of men has achieved through us? What message do the treasures we picked along the way as we walked through the dusty roads of earth asseverate? What thoughts fill our hearts, as we dwell in reminiscence, engulfed by the nostalgic feelings that point to historic victories and epochal achievements that are much cherished?
When the curtains are finally drawn and love becomes too far to reach. Peace takes an indefinite flight and joy unconsciously drifts away. Rest is nowhere to be found and a feeling of emptiness sets in. This vacuum so created cannot be concealed. And the hole that accompanies this epiphany cannot be filled with the measure of problems youíve had and the number of problems youíve been able to solve in the guise of achievement. Only one good feeling is bound to last beyond the shores and fringes of manís helpless state. It is the very essence of Godís presence.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
