(I will try to make this submission as concise as possible.)
Approximately 90 years ago Dr. Frederick Banting discovered the hormone Insulin. It had existed as a secretion from the pancreas in the human body as long as humans have existed and even further back then that. Until approx. 90 years ago, the human race had not acquired the necessary knowledge to understand and discover Insulin.
With similar thoughts in mind, I believe in a Creator. At this time in our history, and because of our mental limitations we are unable to comprehend the actual form of our Creator's existence. I am not willing to accept the idea put forward by Atheists that reality is all accidental. There is too much order in the Universe for me to exclude the possibility that there is a Creator.
I do not believe in most of the Christian concepts of our Creator or that some human being was actually the son of God. As an aside, after the Second World War, the Japanese Emperor had to go on radio and tell his people that he was not God.
Is an Atheist saying that they have accumulated enough knowledge to conclude that reality is all accidental and there is no chance that a Creator who is beyond our present understanding is possible??? I think they have shielded themselves from any burden of proof long enough. Saying that all of creation is accidental is a definitive statement that requires just as much proof as saying that there is a Creator. I think this debate will go on ad infinitum, --- or at least until the human race increases our knowledge far beyond that which we have achieved thus far.
We have nothing to fear except our lack of understanding of fear itself.
