THE BOTTOM LINE-
Pubication for DEEP THINKERS
Let me explain.
In the past Scientist believed
that the Universe itself was infinite and eternal.
So the universe cannot be God. It can’t be the cause.
One might believe that matter is
eternal and infinite.
If you believe in the “Big Bang,” it cannot be the first cause, because there had to be something that "went bang," something that exploded something that matter, time, energy and space came from. And then there had to be laws that governed the explosion, else why would it even explode?
Even if you believe that the Universe came into existence from a quantum bleep, an anomaly of randomness against a sea of higher dimensional space or multiple universes, There still had to be something eternally existing from which this randomness operated, a fabric from which universes are woven. There still had to be laws of randomness that were either eternal and Godlike or come from something which was itself infinite and Godlike.
Whatever you choose to believe, when you take it to its logical beginning, there had to be something causeless and eternal. Something that was God. Something that started it all; something that was a causeless eternal foundation.
So whether you believe in evolution or special
creation, this cause produced living, intelligent, conscience beings!
So logic says there is a God, something infinite and
eternal. As an atheist, would it not be safe to say, that you really do
believe in a God, but that you believe that God is not living, intelligent
or conscience. Therefore giving reality no true purpose to its existence.
But when you look around you, when you witness the complexity of living things, of the universe, when you marvel at the existence of thought, intelligence, consciousness;
When you see that particles of space and matter on the quantum level act and react differently in relation to the presence of an observer;
In the face of all of these facts, How can you possibly criticize those who chose to believe in a God who is living, intelligent, and conscious; A purposeful first cause?
I know this itself does not answer all the questions
about God. But neither does science or any explanation. The fact is there
has to be a God out there, that is infinite and eternal, living or not, that
is beyond our experience. This itself concludes that we can never know all
there is to know about that God whatever form you believe him to be.
