probe of God

no one can satisfactorily prove
the existence of God,
or the world, as we know it,
is paradise--always!
and we all are...one big and happy family.

there are things we accept, though no one can explain
them fully. some examples: love between persons,
melody and rhythm in music, beauty and fragrance in a
flower, and--thought in one's brain. we accept them
as gospel...as my belief in the ways i can prove (at least
to myself), the existence of God...satisfactorily:
first, reason. for thirst--drink, for creation--creator.
second, intuition. justice is right. war is hell.
third, revelation. the bible is the book no one reads
without being stirred in one's faith and belief about God
as a reality. i dare any man or woman to read it,
cover to cover--from genesis to revelation. and--
fourth, experience. no one can deny it. we all live it.
it is the "what and why of who we all are."

so, i, therefore, hereby henceforth--put forth to all....
