I have tried to harvest from tons of minds clues about the nature of God, human existence, and our chance to transcend what on earth is commonly referred to as self-preservation – the “most powerful” human instinct. Further, I have the argument that debunks the myth that humans are mortal beings – simply living and ultimately dying.
If things were as basic as traditional biology lets us know, then what makes up a spouse or even a parent ready to give his (her) life in return for his beloved? Perhaps love and also the divine human spirit give to us the innate spiritual supremacy to go up above our “greatest human instinct,” and propel you to outrival our “captive,” namely, the primitive drive to outlive. It goes without saying, we’re time for where we began. The question that is still to be answered concentrates on whether humankind are eternal beings?
I did research with respect to the chance of a person being alive as of this very moment – living in the world we call earth. We’ll get to this in just a minute.
Bear at heart that our universe sprang into existence as “singularity” around 13.7 billion in the past.
Though I have been flirting together with the possibility of eternal life (in most shape or form), and, something or Someone who was the grand designer from the cosmos, I haven’t used the term “religion” – correct?
Comparing apples-to-apples, I will use the phrase “faith” when contrasting faith being a higher power vs. faith within the science underlying the Big Bang Theory.
We know the universe came to be almost 14 billion in years past, however, ask a scientist ‘how the Big Bang occurred.’ You will likely get a result that goes similar to this, ’14 billion in years past the universe burst into being from a mystery cosmic trigger.” Hmm – a mysterious cosmic trigger… what’s a mystery cosmic trigger? Beats me, but surely it requires some faith to trust in one!
Logic tells me that faith is available in two competing forms, faith inside the form of any scientific theory and faith in something or Someone, i.e. higher power. I tend to search for compelling evidence to back up a given faith.
The supposition that some unknown cosmic trigger resulted in me sitting in front of my computer typing would require me to possess faith inside existence of your cosmic trigger. So, what’s a reasonable alternative to a mysterious cosmic trigger? Probability and statistics, obviously! I will illustrate my point without getting too deep into your mathematical discipline.
I noted above that I did some study with respect to the chance of a person being alive today – living on this planet we call earth. First and foremost, it doesn’t matter what faith you embrace, you’re a miracle – at least inside eyes of probability and statistics.
Throughout the violent and turbulent early moments with the Big Bang to your formation of earth 4.5 billion in the past, you “survived” the poisonous of catastrophic events like the meteor that hit earth killing 80% of most life on this planet including the dinosaurs which occurred 66 million years back.
From the Big Bang over the moment within your conception and birth, you might be indeed a miracle in the statistical likelihood of you being here’s somewhere around one inch 400 trillion. I suggest that it must be more likely for someone to win the lottery many, many times consecutively than being alive.
Is statistical science fact or faith? Perhaps the probability (one inch 400 trillion) of yourself being alive, living that is known, is utter nonsense provided that statistical analysis could be a daunting endeavor on the subject of controlling critical variables while analyzing and normalizing the information.
Frankly, it could be too difficult to get to a valid conclusion? I don’t have a very good answer, nonetheless, I think it more prudent to hitch a horse into a wagon that missing a wheel, i.e. unknown cosmic trigger.
Einstein continued to hold a deistic idea of God. He stood in awe in the beauty and complexity with the cosmos but tend to not bring himself to receive the idea of the God who meddles in human history.
Einstein’s thought of beauty is that it resonates with all the awe on the beauty and complexity with the cosmos. Certainly, something or Someone should have had a hand from the beautiful design with the cosmos.
Perhaps Einstein saw correctly the beauty from the universe reflects the fantastic thing about something or Someone in the evening universe. If God had remained silent, we’re able to say no in excess of Einstein said – that “the vast darkness on the universe presents suggestions of an transcendent beauty.”
Earnest Becker wrote “Man breaks from the bounds of mere cultural heroism; he destroys the type lie which had him perform like a hero inside everyday social scheme of things; through doing so he opens himself nearly infinity, to the chance for cosmic heroism… He links his secret inner self, his authentic talent, his deepest feelings of uniqueness… to your very ground of creation. Out in the ruins with the broken cultural self there continues to be mystery in the private, invisible, inner self which yearned for ultimate significance.
This invisible mystery with the heart of [the] creature now attains cosmic significance by affirming its connection with all the invisible mystery on the heart of creation. “This,” he concludes, “is madness of faith.”
According to Becker, faith may be the belief that despite one’s “insignificance, weakness, death, one’s existence has meaning in many ultimate sense since it exists in the eternal and infinite scheme of things introduced and maintained to style by some creative force.
