We went through this in a Philosophy class at the U of Alabama. Very interesting stuff.
We were asked if God existed, and to prove or view. Many became very emotional over this, but it was very eye opening.
The fact is, presented with the Judeo-Christian concept of God, it is very difficult to defend. However, there are certain things that are argued to
disprove God that can easily be explained away with slight adaptions to the 'Approved God'.
Let us look at God as this, an Intelligent Energy Source. Let us say this energy is renewable.
God became with alot of Energy. God used this Energy to create things. At some point God realized his Energy was fading. He realizes he must create
something that can reproduce this Energy for God to feed on. Enter Man.
Now, I have to digress here for a moment to explain a bit of Science. Did you know everything in existence moves, on its own accord. Like the chair
you sit in now to read this. No, I don't mean it moves because it sits stationary on a moving mass called Earth. It actually moves, it vibrates at a
lowest of frequencies. Let me explain.
What is Water? Water is one Hydrogen and two Oxygen forming a Molocule. Now, water is the liquid state. You can freeze it to create Ice. You can
heat it to create Steam (Solid and Gas). It still is One Hydrogen and Two Oxygen. The difference is that when heated the atoms move very rapidly, when
frozen the atoms move very slowly.
Everything is made from Atoms joined together. Your chair is actually uncountable atoms merged together. And each is moving right now. Everything is
in motion, merely at an unpercievable rate. This brings me back to my Energy theory.
God creates Man. Man has many chemical reactions. Pulse rates rise when we lie, get scared, fall in love, etc. We emit energy. You become embarresed
and your face turns red, even gets hot to the touch... same with intense anger.
I propose that a certain something, though not sure what, is produced by Good Will. Doing good things naturally causes something inside us to
produce. This production is emmitted and taken in by the Intelligent Renewable Energy Source, allowing it to thus create more things.
Now, the catch here is this. Man is created with this energy. Man may give back in great quantity this energy by doing good. However, doing Evil
Acts destroys that bit of energy, never to return to the Creator.
So you have two sides, one that creates energy to feed the power and another that destroys it. God continues to produce. Some things cost more
energy than others.
This leads me to an argument against God. 'If God is so good, why did he let Hitler kill so many?' My stance is, he stopped Hitler from killing so
many more. The amount of acts he must do to stop evil things is very draining, and the evil acts are very numerous. Simply put, God did not have the
energy early on to stop the Rise of Hitler. But as Hitler put more fear in the world more believed in a power and did good acts to aid there fellow
man. This was enough energy for God to help bring down the fall of Hitler. Whether he did this on his own (speaking to Hitler of his evils, thus
pushing Hitler to suicide) or by manifesting his will on others (aiding people to put the pressure on Hitler, closing in on him until he broke) or
through Divine Aid (having the weather bad enough for the Germans not to expect a beach landing but good enough for the Allies to land on D-Day,
leading to the War being won by the Allies). All these ideas take power to do.
This goes hand in hand with my Belief Theory (any god can exist, if one believes. Thor and Saturn were all real at one time, they were fueled by
belief in them. Minor Dieties do less because they have less energy due to having less followers. As most of the world moved to a One God ideal, those
old gods perished. The power of Native American and Abirigonal gods is less because fewer believe.)
It is possible, by not renewing the energy through acts of good, to completely drain this being of all energy. I think it must create, there is not
just a need but this is the meaning of existence for the being. It creates. From it all things spring forth. So it can not, when faced with the last
measurable amount of energy, conserve to continue to exist. When the last of the energy is spent this being is extingushed and is no more.
Looking at God in that light we can now see why there are less miracles to be seen, much less than reporting in the works of the Bible. We can see
why certain horrors can not be avoided.
Simply, one must shrug off the idea that God is All Powerful. Though capable of unbelieveable Power, he has an LIMITED SOURCE of this power. This
now makes the being unable to do all things, making the existance much more likely.
Now, this does in fact mean undermining the definition of the accepted God, the All Knowing and All Able. This many will reject. I merely state,
through THEORY, that this is a workable scientific model of a God.
In fact, I wrote my paper on this subject entierly. Of all the ideas my instructor shot down... he was actually amazed by this take and stumped as
to how I happened upon it as he had never heard this view before (which is amazing, since he gets 50 something kids a semester throwing ideas at
I'm not sure if anyone else has came upon this, or if there are books or lectures or what not. I'm also not saying I believe this to be true.
Merely that this is my Philosophical Model to explain a Scientically Valid God.
(Philosophically, saying God can Do All and God is Good means that acts like War can not happen, for a good God that can do all would intervene.) So
you must either strip Good, or the ability to Do All, to make Philosophical sense of the matter.
