Be prudent and believe.

Do you say there is no God?
If you say there is no God,
You make me laugh;
If you say you want to see God
Before you believe,
You make me laugh the more;
If you say you don’t believe in God
Because there is too much evil in the world,
You make me really laugh;
If you say God does not exist
Because good people suffer and evil people enjoy,
You make me laugh out my lungs;
Why do I laugh?
Because I think you are short-sighted
If not downright stupid;
You think you can use your human mind
To understand the mystery that is God?
You can only understand some;
What He decides that you understand;
The rest is mystery.
By the way, how many things of the world
Do you understand?
Do you understand or see all the things
That you believe or that are real?
You don’t see air but isn’t it real?
You can’t touch air but isn’t it real?
You want to see God before you pray to Him;
Do you see the person
At the other end of your telephone
Before you talk to him or to her?
Does the broadcaster see their audience
Before talking to them?
Even the things that fellow human beings do,
Do you understand all?
Be prudent, my friend.
That is what a wise person does;
Be prudent and believe;
If it turns out when you die
That there is no God, no heaven, no hell,
You have nothing to lose;
If you fail to believe
And it turns out when you die
That there is a God, a heaven and a hell,
What happens to you?
It will be to late.
People who were here before you believed;
Greater people than you believe;
Scientists believe;
People who have made their mark in the world believe;
Don’t claim to be the most brilliant of all;
The only one who understands;
You are not.
If you are, prove it in other fields;
Make your mark in other ways;
Win a Nobel prize;
Go down in the world book of record
As the greatest man whomever lived;
Who alone understand life
And says there is no God.
My friend, be prudent;
Believe!
