Why believe in God…
I don’t have enough    faith NOT to   believe in God!
Look around you…
Look at the world…
Look at life on earth
Look at each other…          …in all our diversity!
I don’t have the faith  to believe that this    all happened by        accident!
Something as   wonderful, bizarre and  complex as the universecannot have come about by         chance…
Imagine a junkyard…
Imagine a whirlwind…
Imagine the whirlwindpicking up all the scrap in      the junkyard…
Imagine all the bits being thrown together in the     mighty wind…
…and when they fell down  to earth it they were      formed into a  complete, working…

That is why Ibelieve in God!
…but belief can be hard
