God as a computer programmer.

When i see an object, I see some sort of creator/designer behind the object.

For example, look at the computer/iphone/ipad/blackberry/whatever-you're-using-to-view-this.
On the keyboard you see an array of meticulously arranged letters/number/and symbols. With just one click of the "power" button, your computer gets a breathe of life and begins to run all the necessary processes. By looking and thinking about how a computer works, there can be no doubt that there has to be someone who thought out the design for building the computer sitting in front of you.

In the same way, that's how i know that a Creator exists. I can see it in nature. In the trees, clouds, mountains, rain, snow. These things couldn't have just came from..nothing? But one thing that truly makes me believe in a creator, is the human body.

Our bodies are craze.
- in one hour, your heart works hard enough to produce the energy to raise almost 1 ton weight 1 yard off the ground.
-in 1 sq inch of skin, you have 4 yards of nerve fiber, 1300 nerve cells, 100 sweat glands, and 3 million cells.
-our bodies can heal and replenish itself. we make a new skeleton every 3 months, and we get new skin every month.

There are other CRAZYY things our body can do, but, to me, the most amazing thing about humans are our brain. The ability to think and reason is amazing. That's how i know that we didn't just spontaneously come to life. Just like how i put AP|Photography on my pictures, God puts his watermark on his creations too.

I'm a computer science minor, and programming SIMPLE projects can take HOURS AND HOURS. one big thing that computer scientists are always trying to improve is artificial intelligence. Basically creating "The Terminator". A computer that can think and reason for itself. Personally i dont think a computer will ever be able to reach that stage. anyways, after wasting my life in lab this week, i sorta began to imagine God as this crazy computer progammer that designed the human race on his macbook.

I wish God could tutor me in compsci.

  1. :). Agreed.

    Finally, someone who understands what I go through for computer science... Hahaha.

    I might write an entry on this later, but cryptography is also really interesting in how there are certain encrypted messages that you don't know if they're just random junk or if they're actually encoding a secret message. The only way you can tell is if you see patterns, and if, once decoding it you discover something meaningful.

    In the same way, when we examine nature, how do we know there is a designer? When we find patterns, complexity, and meaning we can be sure that there is a designer. When we see His watermark, we can be sure He was there.
