Cause and effect are interconnected, every effect has its cause, and the Greatest Creator is the primordial cause of all causes
We have all experienced headaches. Every one may have a different cause for headache, but every headache has a cause, and there could be no headache without a reason.
Everyone becomes sick because of some causes, no matter what kind of disease he has contracted. There are also causes for congenital diseases. No one, I think, will disagree in this matter.
In the same way, typhoon, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, sandstorms, and SARS virus all have their causes for occurrence.
World War Two, the crusades, and wars in the Middle East all have their causes. They would not take place without any causes.
The massacre of the Jewish people in World War Two, the collision of Titanic with icebergs, the attack against America’s World Trade Center, the disintegration of Soviet Union, the Return of Hong Kong to China, and the overthrow of Saddam Regime—all these have happened with their own causes.
Aren’t there causes for the earth orbiting around the sun and the moon orbiting around the earth?
Aren’t there causes for airplane crash, train collision, collapse of houses, and flooding of rivers?
Aren’t there causes for being the object of vituperation, for broken family, for imprisonment and decapitation, and for unnatural death?
Aren’t there causes for tumefaction on the head and purulence on the feet, deafness and blindness, and disability?
Aren’t there causes for tiger’s and leopard’s capturing of deer, for birds’ catching of insects, for the slaughtering of pigs, and for man’s sudden misfortunes?
Aren’t there causes for the decline of the early Maya civilization, Greek civilization, Egyptian civilization, ancient Roman civilization, Syrian civilization, Persian civilization, and Babylonian civilization? Aren’t there causes for the rise of American civilization?
The following phenomena I listed in the chapter of “inevitability” of Life Chanyuan all have their causes:
The rise of wind and waves, the ebb and flow, the rising of clouds and falling of rain, the snow and mist, thunder and lightning, tsunami, typhoon, volcanic eruption, earthquake and fault, flooding, sandstorm, disappearance of birds, morning and evening glows, rainbows, solar and lunar eclipses, seasonal changes, migration of birds, hibernation of frogs and snakes, morning songs of larks, rooster’s crowing, plague of insects, multiplication of bacteria, the birth in the spring and growth in the summer, the collection in autumn and storage in winter, the entwining of vines, the fragrance of osmanthus, the blooming and withering of flowers, the sun-facing feature of sunflowers, the continental drift, the disintegration of earth’s crust, the melting of snow, the disappearance of islands, the river’s change of course, the landslide, the rise of peaks, the weathering of rocks, the ravines, the movement of sand dunes, the spring between the rocks, the waterfalls, the river’s transport of sand, the appearance of delta, and so on.
All phenomena or results, whether in the sky or under the sun, have their causes. We can never find a phenomenon or result that does not have a cause. If life-forms on earth owe their existence to the earth and the solar system, and solar system owes its existence to the Milky Way Galaxy, then what is the reason for the birth of the Milky Way Galaxy? If we track further, we will understand that at the beginning of the birth of the universe, there must be a primordial cause（the cause of the cause）—the Greatest Creator.
