This morning I awoke to the sound of thunder and flash of lightning; as it shook the house, I cowered under my sheets. I imagined the Greek God Zeus throwing his lightning rods toward earth. I then recollected a verse in the Book of Prophecy:
In this world, landslides, thunder, earthquakes,
And great winds are all from the anger of God. 6-91
From a religious prospectus, this may serve as a teaching tool that God is not happy about the actions of mankind. In the Bible, God destroyed the earth because of mankind’s evil behaviors, albeit with the exception of Noah. But can we somehow utilize science and physics in explaining natural catastrophes and also relating it to human behavior. Let us first look at thunder and lightning. They are composed of a plethora of energy derived from many sources. The same can be said of the power of the earthquake. But what is the source of these energies. Can they be from God? Could the Greeks have been correct in their depiction of Zeus? Can God be a body of energy?
Let us look at energy. Our thoughts are fabricated from energies in our brains. These thoughts are often relayed from our minds to other parts of the body by neurons, resulting in actions like walking or talking. But what if negative thoughts like greed and arrogance accumulate in our bodies. Can these negative energies cause mutations, cancer, and illness? How does the body remove these negative energies that can destroy the body? In our cells, we have organelles called the Golgi apparatus that collects and eliminate waste in our cells. Does our body have a system to eliminate negative energy?
Some say that our souls are the nonphysical entity that collects and eliminates our negative energies. In many of the religious books, this nonphysical entity is referred to as the “heart”. It is like the sand in the sewage system that absorbs all the waste. The heart like the Golgi organelle eliminates these damaging energies gradually from our bodies. These negative energies are released into the atmosphere, or the body of God. Could you imagine the daily negative energies released by seven billion people on this earth? Global warming may not be caused by pollution, but caused by human thoughts; something to ponder about?
