Ecological and Environmental Knowledge

This is a big topic. In fact, with the proper ecological and environmental knowledge (and model of reality) one can ultimately unify science and theology.

Most scientists agree that the universe is unified (that is why they are seeking a “unified theory”). On the smallest micro-level of the universe we have quantum entanglement, where everything seems to be non-locally connected simultaneously—on the most fundamental level the universe starts off and operates in a most perfectly unified manner. On the larger macro-level of reality we have a universe that is oriented and ordered, and also presents us with an evolutionary trajectory of biomass on Earth that forms ever more profound interconnections, interrelationships and interdependent processes between living organisms.

World creation and the evolution of organic life (called complexity theory) is the perfection of unity through diversity. Nothing becomes organized except through reciprocation and co-existence.

A case can be made that reality springs out of an organic or living principle and that it becomes more coherent and complex through the dynamics of conjunctive design—which is beyond accident or chance. If we take into account that the quantum micro-world is non-locally and non-temporally dynamic, then we can consider that this fundamental and primal level of reality is actually non-physical!

This leaves us with a non-physical causal principle of unity. What could that be? Luckily, humans actually sense and experience this non-physical principle firsthand,  through the mind and its consciousness.

But what psychical or non-material principle has, in its very essence, the incessant endeavor and drive to unite through reciprocation? The answer is Infinite LOVE.

Infinite love leads us to a living Creator-God. This is why I have been promoting the idea that both contemporary science and religion need to be founded and built upon organic models.

My two books Sermon From The Compost Pile and Proving God offer insights into formulating such an organic and unifying model of the universe.
