How can you say "There is No God"
Just look at this miraculous complex machine called Human Body and still say
There is no God
Even doctors after many years are still doing research and discovering new things about the human body.
Science are always baffled at how the human body operates..
Because Doctors know that A Creator Designed each complex part of the Body.
Each organ has different cells but are still in harmony and connected to each other. Feeding each other and sharing the nutrients to every cell in the body.
This is how heaven was designed, each community in heaven share with each other and they each have different role and function but they all connected just like organs have different functions
Why can't mankind learn from the human body??!
Our planet earth is a body and we humans are the trillions of cells that are inside the body.
We die and multiply everyday just like cells inside us die and multiply everyday..
We are different by race,religions and culture just like liver cell are TOTALLY different from kidney cell and both are located in different areas of the body as we humans are located in different parts of this world but the heart will always pump blood and nutrients to the kidney for support no matter the distance b/w them.
we humans need to be connected and HELP each other just like the cells in our body..
We share so many similarities with the cells of our body. We should learn from them because
We fight wars just like the cells in our body fight and defend their territory from bacteria (foreign invaders).
If the liver stops working, then the kidney will fail then the other organs join and shut down which brings death of the grand human body(the nation)
Cancer is caused when an organ is not in co operation with other organs just like humans it becomes isolated and form rebel groups just like humans do( Isis, boko haram)
These cancer cells(rebels) destroy the human body just like rebels destroy the nation with war attacks..
If trillions of different cells can coexist in harmony the make up a HEALTHY HUMAN BODY(peaceful nation)
Imagine if the cells of the heart collect 100% nutrients and only share only 5% to the rest of the cells of body As a result these cells turn cancerous and stop working with each other in harmony you will have a DIS- EASE or DIS-UNITY between the organs. Thus a SICK HUMAN BODY..(a nation in war and crisis)
God Created Human Body with his image, that image is for all his creations with their unique talents and contributions to Come Together and Coexist in Harmony. Only then will Earth and mankind experience PEACE!!!

And 24-72 hours after death
— the internal organs decompose. 3-5 days after death
— the body starts to bloat and blood-containing foam leaks from the mouth and nose.
8-10 days after death
— the body turns from green to red as the blood decomposes and the organs in the abdomen accumulate gas.

In this generation, nobody regards the human body anymore. It who you are, what you know, and what you can provide for them they cherish only.
