2015.07.03: faith and reason

Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” – Jn 20:29


some will never believe
that life evolved over millions of years
to its present day forms
no matter how many fossils are dug up
or how large the bones of the creatures
that dominated the earth so many years ago

some will never believe
everything visible and invisible
all the complexities
that science still can’t explain
came from one big bang

some will never believe
that life is more than what happens before we die
that the memories and experiences
end at the doorway of death
that concepts like truth, love, mercy and justice
matters not when the funeral bell tolls

some will never believe
that death is only a gateway not the end all
that a man died and rose again
that he came to show us the way
the truth and the life

some are believers
some are doubters
some believe in faith
some believe in reason
i believe in both
faith and reason
two wings on the same bird
a flight of transcendence
