I was U2U'ing with another member, when something I've been struggling to find the words for fell into place. There was a word I've been missing, a
label that defines an idea that suggests the existence of something other than pure chaos and chance. I am not saying it's a god, I am not saying
it's proof of a god. Anyone who is familiar with me knows that I do not believe in a conscious all powerful being ruling from the heavens.
I believe in a law, a code. But there has to be evidence for this code, right? Well, here it is. Here's my argument in favor of a divine
Atheists say the universe was born from chaos. Of chaos, by chaos. The nature of chaos is to take every opportunity, roll a number, roll a number to
determine the chances of the first number, roll a number to determine the chances of the second number, throw all the numbers in the air, and then
strike while they're still falling. Chaos doesn't allow organization. Chaos is a race against time.
The nature of order is to take every opportunity to stack the odds in favor of a particular outcome. Roll a number, change variables to reflect the
effects of that number, roll a number, change, roll, change, roll. It's a chess game.
Order and chaos should be mortal enemies. That's what people think. They should be Harry Potter and Voldemort, Luke Skywalker and Palpatine, Subway
and McDonalds. But see, while chaos is rolling numbers, order is switching up the game by preparing for every possible outcome. Chaos, by its very
nature, is unfocused. Which mean order can fly circles around it any day. And when chaos takes an opportunity to beat down the good work of order,
order uses that opportunity to put its own plans into play and improve upon its original designs. That way, chaos points out the exact weaknesses and
order figures out how to make it stronger.
It's a chess game of the most beautiful and astronomically astounding proportions. That's why I believe in a divine principle. Because unless there
was some kind of code giving a direction to the universe, order wouldn't do that. Order wouldn't be necessary because there's no reason to preserve
The mere existence of preservation, from the very beginning, speaks to me of direction. There's a meaning there. The universe was born from chaos, by
chaos, they say. But if that's the case, it should have stayed in chaos.
These are my thoughts on the matter.
