All things denote there is a God

“All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.” Alma 30:44

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines denote as:

DENOTEverb transitive [Latin To note or mark.] 1. To mark; to signify by a visible sign; to indicate; to express.

I would like to thank a new friend of mine for an observation he made in a recent email exchange:

“I thought I understood the idea of stand ye in holy places, but now I see it as, ye stand in holy places. What’s holy and sacred in us, goes where we go if our intent is to be holy and sacred.” (Emphasis added)

Great post. Thank you. I think you’ve referenced them before, but John Pratt’s articles (like http://www.johnpratt.com/items/docs/lds/meridian/2000/mormastr2.html) beautifully uncover so much of how the planets witness of their Creator. I felt there was one sign or witness that seems to be underrepresented on the Internet, so I just finished assembling a walk-through of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOfcgRuyvkg. (buried too deep on Michael Schneider’s site) The Creator’s hand is evident all around us, just as it should be within us.
