Theistic God who is personally involved with man


Creation of something from Nothing
Something out of Nothing

                                                               Theistic God


                                                                                Deistic God

Albert Einstein believed in a deistic God, which makes sense because he spent his life thinking about the universe out amongst the stars.  A Deist thinks that God created all the laws of nature and then stood back and let it all blossom forth.  I guess I do believe that there is some unifying force that made everything “just right” so that we could eventually show up here with life on earth.  In the big bang, something was created out of nothing, and then the force of gravity was perfectly calibrated for the stars to be flung out not too fast and not too slow, etc.  But these questions are too remote for me – intriguing for sure – but such a conception of God does not touch me.

In this blog, I am talking about a theistic God.  This is a God who exists within us and touches us in our every thought constantly whether or not we believe in Him. This is a living God who suddenly arose amongst us as a single soul into which all of us are born and continues living after death.  Belief in a theistic God is belief that there is a soul in everyone which is the same – a soul that is comprised of perfect justice, peace, and unity.

This blog is about how that deistic God evolved a theistic God 6 million years ago on earth, and then goes on to explain the meaning of our own benighted species and the unfinished business of our evolution.

So this is a big-picture FAQ. From now on, FAQ’s will continue to answer the evolutionary & mechanical questions of how God actually created us in His image – how it all actually took place on the ground– and the clear evidence for it.  But, before we dive into the actual nuts and bolts and gears, a few inspirational lines from William Wordsworth:

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
Shades of the prison-house begin to close
Upon the growing Boy,…

  1. Wonderful! I find this explanation very compelling and inspiring. The Wordsworth poem is nice, too. While most wander blindly or in despair, some few have been trying through the ages to bring everything together, and you are part of that noble effort.
