Design comes from a designer, laws come from a law giver, life comes from a life giver, creation comes from a creator. Science operates on the principle that for every effect there is a cause. But what caused the “Big Bang”? Was it blind, natural forces or was it an intelligent being, who carefully planned it beforehand? According to my opinion, the scientific method is of no value, or of very little value, in this complex matter.
There are perhaps 195 countries in the world. Some are developed and some are developing. In the race with each other, they not only go against each other but commit lawlessness to win the title or an extra medal, but in the process they lose track of what their creator showed them and they even forget their creator. The countries that lose in the race pass through extreme distress, anguish, and frustration. What I have personally experienced is that they show their anguish and frustration on special occasions, like Independence day, Republic day, by showing off their powerful weapons, one more terrible than the other, to tell the world how strong they have grown and how much powerful they now are. What they actually want through this way, though, is to get rid of their frustration. In reality, none of them is powerful. If they were, then why that power is not working when there is the most need of that power? Their reality has been shown to them by this invisible microorganism, the Corona Virus. The real Almighty has given it such power that the superpowers are in despair. It is the message from the Almighty to the whole world that there is a natural power which commands this world.
I am damn sure that this virus is a creation of the Almighty meant to clear all the hogwash of superpowers and to show them that path of which they have lost track. He wants them to come back to that track.
What I want to say is that the power which these countries show off on their special occasions is of no use to them before the power of the Almighty, who is the only powerful creator, intelligent designer, life giver and law giver. He is the God of justice and judgement and rewards us according to our works. He gives us the opportunity to make choices, and He lets us reap what we sow.
