All things happen by power or belief, and it is the living, that have the power to believe. And the power, that is the cause of all things to exist, is the correct thing to believe.

Belief; because if the living"s belief is correct according to what the power is, then the living shares, participates, becomes part of, the desired result of what is about to happen. And the living experience the fulfillment of the desired result which is something that happens.

Power; is self explanatory simply because, it"s required for things to exist and happen.

Though one could argue value or what is valued has everything to do with what is believed, but it would seem that what is valued is based on what is believed to be valuable. And would seem to be off subject.

Hence the question of whether there is a True God or not, can arise by the simple view of, is the Power that is the cause of all things, alive?

In the case of science v religion they both agree that there is a power that is the cause of existence of all things.

So could it be that those who claim that, there is no god, are incorrect? Seeing that there is a power that is the cause of all things. Now there could be a miss understanding in what a god is but there is a God that is claimed to be God by those who believe He is God. And their basic meaning of who their God is, is Creator and Judge of all things, hence the cause of all things.

The scientific word for the power is ENERGY.
The religious word for the power is God.
The religious concept is merely an anthropomorphism of the scientific concept.
It stems from our superstitious ancestors who believed all the forces of nature were supernatural acts of gods.
They worshiped/ idolized those gods and made sacrifices to them to appease them and stop them from getting angry and causing things like earthquakes , floods, droughts, etc.

Intelligent people understand ALL invisible supernatural gods are mythical characters which merely personify the natural powers that be.

Superstitious people still worship invisible supernatural gods and don't want to give up their worship of invisible idols because they are afraid of the consequences if they do.

What consequence would that be?

Their belief that they will go to hell and be tormented for eternity if they don't obey their God.
