"the Higgs boson is the only visible and particular manifestation of an invisible force field that permeates space binding the Universe on a molecular level" (Science Today )
"It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together" (Obi Wan Kenobi)
I bet the census taker who laughed when I told him my religion was Jedi isn't laughing anymore....
Uh huh. Buddy, the fact that there are forces that hold the universe together has always been obvious. The fact that the universe is here is the evidence. That has exactly zero to do with the silly sci-fi mumbo jumbo of being a "jedi". Seriously, put down the comic books and grow up.
i once bought a stack of books on the greatest minds about the universe and string theory like Einstein and some others and i looked for their beliefs and how they thought but the most i could find is that they believed in intelligent design in the universe but would not admit the word God , and i thought it may be because they want their work to still be accepted by their colleagues and the majority of people and that its pretty well impossible to PROVE that god exists to others
It is also impossible to prove that Ra, Zeus, Loki, Cthulhu or any other number of gods don't exist. The question is why would we want to when there is not evidence they're there in the first place?
people have received evidence by their own senses but the problem is sharing that , and others willing or not to believe them
your not alone on the universe being infinite but yeah not really proven
just because a brain is finite doesnt mean that it is unable to grasp the concept of infinite. by the same logic one would not know green because they are pink (or brown or whatever tone they are)
you cant prove anything is infinite because it must be finite to be measurable, however that doesnt mean that infinite doesnt exist. the two concepts are completely different i agree but as you related a brain as being unable to recognize inifnite as it is finite and brains are pink as are white people its a fairly valid extension of your premise i think. the brain is finite so it can not understand infinite. the brain is pink so can not understand green. its not really that much of a stretch from your original concept. I think that its an excellent question i dont really have an answer for but just thought that part of your reasoning was a little flawed
its a wonderful thought provoking idea i certainly enjoyed mulling over
thank you id appreciate that =)
The thing about god is that people made him up (just like all the other gods). They didn't have any evidence, they just made the assumption that since the universe was so complex there must be some intelligence behind it, and naturally that intelligence shared their sense of morality. Science works by us observing a phenomena and then trying to figure out why and how that phenomena occurs. God is not a phenomena. There is no evidence that he exists. So from a scientific perspective why would I try to prove something exists when I have zero evidence that it does? I might as well try spend time trying to prove that unicorns live in my sock drawer.
