Scientists discover God!

19 October 2012, 11:02

Imagine if that headline ever appeared on a news site. What fabulous and wonderful potential it could have for all the religious folk out there! “We were right all along!” “I felt it to be so!” “God is great!” Absolute joy and tribulation is all I can imagine will follow from anyone who ever felt the touch of God. Even the atheist or agnostic, disproven in their lack of belief by science once and for all, revealing that God is real, can only accept the established, peer-reviewed and proven theory. A testable, scientific and recognized theory of Gods existence (The God Model?), making inroads on the cosmic effects of prayer, how God works and what his power actually quantifies as – pure bliss.


Just as with all other scientific theories, a Sigma-5 (hopefully!) model will be established to explain and quantify what it all means and how and why it works. The 'God Model' will be applied throughout the world – showing people exactly how to communicate with their God, seeing the result, action and absolute power of the Creator.  Prayer will become the cellphone of the future!


What interests me in this scenario isn’t that my view will become altered from lack of belief to an actual science, but instead the effects such a finding would have on the religious. At first, every creed will be ecstatic about the discovery; it’s meaning and implications, how they can actively start implementing it within their daily lives, celebrating the now, ‘more complete’ model of the universe and man's achievement in gaining understanding. However, as with any belief, you will have those who find the model outside of their idea of belief and consequently, wrong. “This God model isn’t for me, it doesn’t even come close to what I understand God to be.” “Those stupid scientists, once again trying to tell me how things are, they have it all wrong – God isn’t some model, He is everything!” “I won’t bow down to any other God but my own, that’s idolising!”


“I listen to all these complaints about rudeness and intemperateness, and the opinion that I come to is that there is no polite way of asking somebody: have you considered the possibility that your entire life has been devoted to a delusion? But that’s a good question to ask. Of course we should ask that question and of course it’s going to offend people. – Tough.”

– Daniel Dennet


This picture just exemplifies the fickle nature of all religion. It’s not about God in the slightest. It’s all about the tenaciously thought-pervading self-attesting idea that is labelled as ‘truth’. For the religious hold their truth in only that of personal experience or rumours of the experiences of others – essentially faith. It’s a circle of reason the religious have recognised as their personal-core, wherein they have placed everything that they consider to be worthy of loving. Faith is not truth; it does not even attempt to come close to it. It’s merely a matter of being so close-minded that you cannot allow the possibility that you are in fact, close-minded. The discovery of God is exactly what believers do not want. For if it happened, it would be a theory testable by man – a set amount of principles and methods rewritable in a lab. If we actually ever found God, I don’t think the discovery would be very welcome – too many people would be wrong and too few right. Everyone figures his or her individual take on belief an absolute truth – with an established ‘God Model’, too many would have to adjust and only a minority would fit the mould perfectly.


I don’t want you all to be saved; I want you all to wake up. Not to stand up everyday and go around your business, no – I want you to awaken. I want you to attach to the reality that we are all part of this universe. Energy and matter cannot be created or destroyed (with exception) and this simple fact, shows me that whatever has been or will ever be, is what we all have, are and will be. We are everything: I am you and you are I, every day, every smile, every moon and every Sun or star is what we all are. It is where everything has come from and where everything will eventually return to – until the last sun explodes and all light is void from existence, humans a memory so distant it is immeasurable.


In the end, it isn’t about whether you believe or even what you believe. We all die, and I cannot and will not accept that your perception (or lack thereof) of “God” plays any role whatsoever in determining your personal eternal fate.  Fate is nothing more than what we assign it to be. We come and we go, so that others can do the same. I want to go down knowing, rather than hoping. Every second of every day, we cheat Death his claim to us. Your next moment, could be your absolute last. What we do every morning is what everything in existence does every day – we awaken.

I thought Zuma should have known better that a suspension is a blessing in overalls. This time they are red. You give these people time to consult political expects. When EFF come back in parliament they will come back much stronger than they were before suspension. Read more...
