Does God Exist? Some Scientists Think They Have Proof

May 17th, 2017 · No Comments

The incoherence of the ‘god’ idea emerges from this attempted piece ‘stealth godist mischief’, fun but ‘you won’t get away with it’. It is ironic that last week we examined the evidence of the Axial Age as being the source of a god in history mythology which may have cosmic meaning but which cannot work for history…

Let us note that ‘god’ cannot really ‘exist’ in time under conventional interpretations…we are moving to retire the confusion of godist concepts to something more coherent…

In the Axial Age (commonly dated from 800 to 200 B.C.), world-transforming ideas such as Buddhism, Confucianism, the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle, and the Hebrew Old Testament almost miraculously appeared at about the same time in India, China, ancient Greece and among the Jews in the Middle East, groups having little interaction with one another. The development of the scientific method in the 17th century in Europe and its modern further advances have had at least as great a set of world-transforming consequences. There have been many historical theories, but none capable, I would argue, of explaining as fundamentally transformational a set of events as the rise of the modern world. It was a revolution in human thought, operating outside any explanations grounded in scientific materialism, that drove the process. That all these astonishing things happened within the conscious workings of human minds, functioning outside physical reality, offers further rational evidence, in my view, for the conclusion that human beings may well be made “in the image of [a] God.”
