Contrary to what some would tell us, science has not buried God, it has revealed Him. Some would have us believe that we, and all the world around us, are products of a random chance occurrence. They propose that suddenly nothingness became somethingness and matter started spitting out of a single point in space. They are unable to explain the source of everything that emanated from the single point where all scientific laws collapse.
After the initial explosion or expansion of the bang, the planets and other bodies coalesced from this matter into galaxies, stars and planets. After a long time humans developed when amino acids suddenly hit the right combination and evolution kicked in, we were transformed from single cell life to what we are today.
If we to compare the random chance version of creation, it would be comparable to a room full of monkeys, all pecking at keys on typewriters, and given enough time could turn out a wonderful collection of Shakespeare (estimated 884,647 words). Remember, however, the words have to be in the right order, spelled correctly and all the monkeys coordinated so that it all comes mysteriously together for a final product.
Yet another comparison would be to shoot an arrow a distance of 13 billion light-years (76,421,966,961,600 miles) and be able to hit a 1/2 inch round circle on the first try.
The odds against our universe being a by-product of chance is so incredibly large that it defies consideration. At a minimum, one would have to attribute it to intelligent design and then, of course, the issue of God will inevitably result in the discussion.
If we are to inspect the argument for evolution vs creationism, we will find there is an abundance of evidence to show there is species adaptation however, there is no evidence for evolution from species to species. Of course, this lack of evidence causes the defense of evolution to be more difficult.
With the enormous size of the known universe and the complexity of the design which would be required to pull it off is mind-boggling. Yet when we zoom down into the invisible world of the small, the enormity of the scale is again staggering and yet both have a very specific design necessary for it to exist.
When examining the physical world, we also have some less revealing mysteries regarding our existence after death. Surprisingly, there are in excess of 13 million OBE's (out of body experiences) and NDE's (near death experiences) in the US alone, however, these also occur in other countries as well. Modern medicine has advanced so much that increasing numbers of people have been resuscitated, which has led to the explosion of reported cases of NDE's and OBE's.
Today, science has revealed that we live in a world that is far bigger, more complex and provides overwhelming evidence that there is indeed life after death and what we see and believe to be real may be less real than the spiritual realm. Heaven will certainly be the most awesome experience anyone could imagine.
The evidence suggests, that at that final moment when we leave this world we will instantly thrust into a new and possibly vibrant, sensory enhanced new experience where words simply fall far short of describing what we will experience. Of course, there are others that have reported a less pleasing experience which will be described in other pages.
There is a story that occurred many decades ago about three famous large game hunters who had been contracted to hunt down and kill a lion that had been stalking nearby villagers. The three were sitting around their campfire sharing their most amazing experiences in life one night. The first hunter described how he had been in the bush once for weeks hunting a lion that had killed 2 of the villagers. Finally one day the lion actually became the hunter of the hunter, and as the hunter was turning to look at the direction of a sound, he saw the lion running toward at him and the hunter fired killing the lion instantly.

Next, was the second hunter, and he relayed a story somewhat similar however his target was a wild boar, which can be notorious for charging hunters. The hunter went on to tell how the boar was charging toward him and when he pulled the trigger of his gun for the kill the gun misfired, and the boar continued, charging ever faster toward him. Finally, at the last second, he fired again and took him down, almost at the hunter's feet.
Then came the third hunter's story, with the other hunters expecting him to out do them both. The well-seasoned hunter just looked at them with an expression of excitement and said, my most exciting and anticipated moment will be just seconds after I die and leave this body and instantly land in an existence, that should I be able to communicate back, I would be unable for lack of words to describe it, and given the choice to return to my body, I would be repulsed by the thought. This will be my new life with my creator.
Isn't it interesting that we spend so little time in our lives considering the end of our life when we leave out bodies and are transformed to what lies beyond this current world? In the grand scheme of all, this too is but a speck on the timeline.
