GOD'S GREAT BUILDING
BLOCK: THE ATOM
Imagine being the Creator and wanting to
create a vast physical expanse within which you would actualize a great
plan. How would you start? Without doubt, you would want to first of all
conceive a basic building block that could combine in multitudes of ways and
create a multitude of substances that could be used to form endless
realities and endless life forms. These building blocks would obey the same
laws “everywhere” in your universe and would be “continually” energized.
They would be flexible, dynamic, and very powerful. You would then conceive
of a name for this entity that would capture the essence of its stunning
properties, and on to work.
Creator of this vast universe did just that. He had a great plan that would
evolve within a gigantic universe. He then conceived a basic building block
that would have been flexible, dynamic, and very powerful. This minute
entity would obey His will everywhere and at all times. We call this
building block, “The Atom.” He may refer to it by a much more

physical entities without seeming end. Chemists combine it in a

from one single atomic bomb alone.

composed of endless atoms that "quietly" and "efficiently" do their
pre-assigned duty, as the Great Creator ordained.
Any wonder that
the Apostle Paul wrote for all generations that God can be seen within His
creation, and that humans who do not believe in God are without excuse. Not
seeing God's power and greatness within the atom indicates, in the view of
this author, a high level of psychological "resistance" framed by conscious
or unconscious factors that motivate an astounding level of irrationality.
motivating factors are conscious or unconscious, the process began somewhere
back at the conscious level and was fed by motives that were driven by a
need to dispose of the Being the atheist resents, or wants to punish.
Whatever the dynamics, the individual who represses the reality of a Creator
is "without excuse."
