Logic Unites

Of those that believe in God,
with faith in heaven and hell,
this world was created for us,
as a home for us to dwell.

We believe by seeing,
by hearing and touching.
Stimulated by our senses,
by smelling and tasting.

And we think too, constantly,
our thoughts determine our way.
Enforced by nature, and nurture,
we roam in our thoughts all day.

So when Science looks for answers,
in particles that make up things,
why do Creationists complain in
systems built on quantum strings?

If we are living within God’s decree
“Let there be light”
Then it’s a system built for sentience
protected by a divine might.

Then basically we must all agree
that we are living in fantasy.
Either by God, or an ethereal wisdom,
shouldn’t we appreciate the irony?

This world is a simulation
designed for our lives to dwell.
It’s a fact we have now discovered
for why we live within this shell.

So what’s the difference
of a world built in 6 cosmic days
or a universe built in billions of years?
A supreme wisdom built both ways.

A wisdom that created us ‘in His image’
so we can form our own thoughts.
The same wisdom of fields and forces,
of  waves, photons and quarks.

God and Science have already agreed
with the same fundamental conclusion,
whether through faith or first principles
we know the platform is an illusion.

So who can argue what’s right or wrong,
between reality and fairy tales?
We must admit we live ephemerally
and agree that logic always prevails.

About this poem

People fight over religion. Religion fights with science. Science fights with faith. It’s a nonsense mess. We should at least acknowledge that the wisdom is the source for all we know, collectively.
