There is so much chaotic and prejudiced information around on religion and God, it's not surprising that most people reject spiritual ideas.

God and Gods in previous times and cultures united a tribe. These days all the multiplicity of beliefs fracture our culture. I'm wanting to help demystify the subject, and show points of unity.

Is There a God?

This is such a vast subject, i want to simplify it.

For me, God is the great creative energy. The word 'God' is the short word we use in our culture to describe that.

I like the modern scientific idea : if there is nothingness for infinite eternities, sometime a singularity will occurr (the big bang theory), and this sets off a chain reaction. This means we're all part of the same thing ... and this same thing i call the great creative spirit, it's the everything.

Because everything is in some way connected with everything else, it is coordinated, and somehow the big picture makes sense. (My own personal religious views go deeper, but i feel this is all we need for a consensus of opinion.)

So, if there is an ultimate or eternal energy, which is so big and omnipresent, and makes sense of everything, and connects everything, and is everywhere – then why is it so difficult for humans to get in touch with it?
