So, sing that headline to the tune of London Bridge. But then, maybe you scratch your head and wonder, “Nothing is a waste of time? What does that mean? Has Tony gone off the deep end? I can think of plenty of things that are a waste of time.” Yep. I said it. And I stand by it. So, I’ll say it again.
Nothing is a waste of time.
Because nothing is nothing.
The reason I bring this up is because of a senseless meme I saw on social media. It posed the question, “If God made everything from nothing, where did He get nothing?”
Yeah, even people who consider themselves to be thinkers and intellectuals show themselves for the fools they are when they try to define nothing. Like famous atheist, Richard Dawkins.
Just in case you don’t see the video, here’s the link: https://youtu.be/dWyN7Jlulo8
So, now you see why I say nothing is a waste of time. Right?
And the complexity of our world and our universe can’t be explained by everything coming from nothing. In fact, the complexity of your own thoughts proves there is a loving Creator. Unless you avoid the Truth like a plague.
For example, here’s something I wrote, several years ago, about ideas.
“Ideas aren’t some random results of random processing of random information. Ideas are thoughts formulated into an intelligent mental picture as a result of processing logical, reasonable information. But how did all that information get from one source…say your Bible app…into your brain? The answer is simple. But it befuddles (and even angers) most of the so-called “thinkers” of the world.
Your ideas get into your brain by processing and pondering the information you discover using a system designed by…
That system is called logic and reason. Your brain is the user interface. You might call it the the most powerful UI ever designed. And make no mistake…it IS design…not random chance.
It’s uncanny and ironic, to me, how many times I hear the same information bandied around saying the world, and everything in it, came from nothing. At best, that’s a scientific theory. An idea. Yet, that idea can’t explain how ideas are stored. That idea can’t explain logic and reason. That so-called “scientific theory” leads to mankind believing mankind is either the pinnacle of evolution or just another insignificant segment of it.”
And nothing could be further from the Truth.
What does this all mean?
And why should we care
That we didn’t come from slime
And there’s a God out there?! (from the song “Fast Forward”)
