God evident in our continued existence
WITH regard to Dave Carter's letter (March 6) I wouldn't presume to try and persuade him to any form of religious belief when it is obviously important to him to have none, but I'd like to correct his grammar.
You need either the definite or indefinite article to use the word god with a small 'g'. For example "a god" or "the gods".
For my own part I can't help feeling that the very fact that the human race survives, and actually prospers, from one millennium to the next, is the most convincing argument for the existence of God .
Surely only Divine intervention could have prevented us from rendering ourselves extinct, so insanely destructive, of each other and of our environment, as we are.

So many other forms of life come into existence, walk the world for a while, then diminish and disappear, yet we continue to relentlessly multiply.
And the Christian message is also spelled out, quite apart from any Biblical readings, in life as we humans experience it.
Who pays the price for this continuing existence of a species capable of magnificence, yet addicted to destruction? Look around you and you will see everywhere the suffering and sacrifice of the innocent, Christ figures and God's children, every one.
