Proof that God exists

It was right here all the time – or, at least since the 70s: proof that God exists! I’ve spent a lot of time recently reading people’s arguments for and against the existence of God, and I’ve not been that impressed by many of them. I’m surprised that none of them have stumbled on this argument before, it’s so obvious.

Today I was listening to a non-random, eclectic mix of music, which just happened to include Argent’s God Gave Rock and Roll to You. Some of you will remember Rod Argent as the keyboardist from The Zombies (“She’s Not There,” “Time of the Season,” etc.). Argent had one big hit with “Hold Your Head Up,” and 3 Dog Night had a minor hit with a cover of “Liar” (which was done better by Argent). “God Gave …,” written by Argent member Russ Ballard, was covered by people like Petra and later by Kiss.

Anyway, as I was listening to the song, it occurred to me: rock music proves the existence of God! Just consider some of the original lyrics:

Love your friend and love your neighbour
Love your life and love your labour
No, it’s never too late to change your mind
Don’t step on snails, don’t climb in trees
Love Cliff Richard but please don’t tease
It’s never too late to change your mind

God gave rock ‘n’ roll to you, gave rock ‘n’ roll to you
Put it in the soul of ev’ryone
God gave rock ‘n’ roll to you, gave rock ‘n’ roll to you
Save rock ‘n’ roll for ev’ryone

Of course, there will be those who will claim that the rock & roll in our souls evolved from some African tribal chants or something, but seriously, what more proof do you need? We were obviously designed for rock music. And to think that fundamentalists condemned rock & roll as demonic!

So, c’mon, feel the beat and join in: God gave rock ‘n’ roll to you …

Rock on!

  1. I’m sorry, WordPress apparently did the smiley thing on its own… You’re definitely right, it kind of ruins the mood. So, with the wonders of editing, everyone else will just have to imagine the smiley…
