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)

What is it that causes this equilibrium? Scientifically speaking, I believe it is the Atonement. I believe that everything physical points to its spiritual equivalent, and vice versa. We’re so used to talking about the atonement and the priesthood in spiritual terms that I think we forget that it is a real physical force in nature – a force that is with us now. Have you ever had a broken bone? Did it heal? The second law of thermodynamics has always fascinated me. It states that the entropy of an isolated system never decreases, because isolated systems always evolve toward… Read more »
