Faith?

dawnfanshawe

We all live our lives with faith: –
We believe that tomorrow we will wake from our sleep
That when we open our mouth our voices will speak
That turning on the tap, water will flow
And planting seed, the crops will grow…

On things electric we now rely
We all believe that planes can fly
Even though we know not why
With science and reason we can try…

We believe in science, justice and reason
We hold all these in great esteem
Though learned folk of the previous season
Thought today’s inventions just a dream.

But faith in God or a Higher Power –
There scepticism abounds –
We see divisions that we have made
And ignore the evidence of life around

The intelligence in the seed and brain
Are mysteries we can’t explain
And what of longing, valour and love
They are not explained by the theories above.

  1. This is a very valid point – everyone has faith in something. I once heard someone give a sermon where they pointed out the fact that: if someone saw a stained glass window, they would look at all of the perfectly arranged pieces and know that it was made by someone and could not just have happened naturally or fallen into place by accident. Yet, when they look at the human body which is one of the most complicated pieces of art ever, filled with millions of unexplainable atoms and cells all working together perfectly – they assume that it was just a natural phenomenon, just science and nothing else.
