In my debates with scientists and atheists over the existence of God, I often challenge their materialistic ideologies with their irrational view that the Big Bang beginning emerged out of nothingness, plus reminding them that there is no acceptable theory to unify Einstein’s relativity with quantum physics, or, put personhood (what it is to be a person) into the language of physics.
I can’t imagine more important issues to tackle!
So why do scientists remain smug?
To these challenges they will often invoke what is called the Sufficiency Thesis. This thesis allows scientists to take the view that it is only a matter of time before they have solutions to all these problems.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Isn’t that FAITH?!
However, serious thinkers are beginning to sense a growing abyss between science and ontology (what is really real). My favorite topic concerning ontology is person-level experience. It is something everyone experiences firsthand (even scientists) yet it cannot be confirmed by third party observation or through scientific methodology. Scientists simply call this the “hard problem” of human consciousness or “mind-brain” problem.
Scientists have their backs to the wall. Something “extra” needs to enter into the equation.
This is where religion and theology enter into the discussion. All religion addresses the human experience and seeks to influence personhood. Put into scientific language, this means religion attempts to continue the process of evolution not just through increased intelligence but continues through exalting the human heart.
Why would that be?
In my new book “Proving God” I not only provide a theistic model of creation and the unification of all scientific law but also a scientifically plausible theory for why the process of evolution is spiritually driven so that we can lawfully become angels for a non-material realm (heaven).
Religion is actually more sophisticated than the natural sciences because it has always embraced the idea that the human mind operates beyond the constraints of time and space and represents one’s spiritual reality (ontology). Thankfully, there are some pioneering physicists who believe that fundamental reality and the concept of causality is to be found a priori to the spatio-temporal arena and pre-Planck era. This fundamental realm of timelessness and non-locality is called the realm of “pre-geometry.” My book provides rational evidence for why this pre-geometric realm is actually the Spiritual World!
