..many would say that it certainly is not at all friendly, as they type away from the comfort of the chair they sit in...
Other's, perhaps to avoid the implications of a friendly universe in favor of the life we experience, would say that it's utterly indifferent and
without any direction or intent whereby our existence is a byproduct of a grand fluke or mere happenstance and just a blip, nothing more.
What this line of thought and questioning raises, for me, is the idea of significance and meaning or purpose and an original intent wherefrom our
existence and experience is meaningful and significant.
It is of any significance that we are here now and that there is this something rather than nothing or a something that included us or within which we
are a part?
Can an entirely disinterested and impersonal viewpoint be taken in talking about evolution that doesn't consider the inextricable implications of the
personal experience of being alive? And can the human being be considered as just another thing, nothing more?
Isn't there something about the generally prevailing "scientific" viewpoint that rings hollow, facile, and disingenuous, particularly in light of
ideas like fine tuning, monistic idealism (consciousness, not matter is primary), and the self aware universe?
Are we not on the cusp of a new scientific paradigm where the answer to the question of - Is the creation and universe friendly towards us? is a clear
and decisive - YES, however uncomfortable it might make the atheist bias in science, feel?
What would be the implications to the answer of a clear YES?
What does that look like and what does it mean or signify, if it's not nothing at all?
This is where it starts to get interesting, imho, what happens when we start to explore that territory yet without losing for a moment the fundamental
curiosity and discipline at the heart of scientific inquiry.
I think there's a whole framework of valid hypotheses that can be considered with the understanding that our own present moment experience contains
imbedded within it, an original intent or in other words that it was meant to be and that there is a reason why I can type this and you read it now.
I think that there's a whole set of logical principals which arise from this consideration, involving things like generosity and kindness and love,
and that's interesting to me, what I would call a rational basis for "faith" as a reasonable cause for hope and optimism in the face of a world
gone mad due in no small part to bad training involved in the whole materialist monist mindset and worldview and paradigm, which is falling apart at
It's imperative that we consider this "alternative" (soon going mainstream) viewpoint and paradigm and consider it's implications right down to
our own mutually enlightened responsibilities to God and to our fellow man and to ourselves, and how we relate at all levels, of only in order so that
we might be truly happy and back in congruent alignment with the heart of it all, perhaps not unlike the consideration of very wise and knowledgeable
ancient ancient people from a long lost golden age of mankind where the "kingdom of heaven" could be likened to a man, a storekeeper, who brings
forth from his storehouse of treasure, treasures that are both very old and very new.
And for the stoic and impersonal, atheistic scientific, materialist monist viewpoint, you'll have to admit that you can't avoid it as a possibility
ie: that the whole "world" is friendly towards us, and hey doesn't the physical evidence not point a rather sturdy finger in that direction..?
Welcome your best thoughts,
