There is evidence of intelligent design and creative intent spread out all over the creation, even embedded in the earth, moon, sun and stars.
Agree. However, there is no evidence whatsoever of an ALL-knowing, ALL-powerful, inVISible being who is EVERYWHERE, who created the WHOLE universe,
who lives in another dimension called heaven, who is PERFECT in every way, and who was never born and will never die.
Intelligent design? Okay, it's possible. A perfect god? Zero possibility.
Very good description! That's about right.
But do you claim to be smarter than these men Pops (P.S. to the readership he's already given me permission to call him Pops)
The God Theory
by Bernard Haisch
"The God Theory" by Bernard Haisch
Haisch is an astrophysicist whose professional positions include Staff Scientist at the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, Deputy
Director for the Center for Extreme Ultraviolet Astrophysics at the University of California, Berkeley, and Visiting Fellow at the Max-Planck
Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany. His work has led to close involvement with NASA; he is the author of over 130 scientific
papers; and was the Scientific Editor of the Astrophysical Journal for nine years, as well as the editor in chief of the Journal of Scientific
If you think of whitte light as a metaphor of infinite, formless potential, the colors on a slide or frame of film become a structured reality
grounded in the polarity that comes about through intelligent subtraction from that absolute formless potential. It results from the limitation of the
unlimited. I contend that this metaphor provides a comprehensible theory for the creation of a manifest reality (our universe) from the selective
limitation of infinite potential (God)...
If there exists an absolute realm that consists of infinite potential out of which a created realm of polarity emerges, is there any sensible reason
not to call this "God"? Or to put it frankly, if the absolute is not God, what is it? For our purposes here, I will indentify the Absolute with God.
More precisely I will call the Absolute the Godhead. Applying this new terminology to the optics analogy, we can conclude that our physical universe
comes about when the Godhead selectively limits itself, taking on the role of Creator and manifesting a realm of space and time and, within that
realm, filtering out some of its own infinite potential...
Viewed this way, the process of creation is the exact opposite of making something out of nothing. It is, on the contrary, a filtering process that
makes something out of everything. Creation is not capricious or random addition; it is intelligent and selective subtraction. The implications of
this are profound.
If the Absolute is the Godhead, and if creation is the process by which the Godhead filters out parts of its own infinite potential to manifest a
physical reality that supports experience, then the stuff that is left over, the residue of this process, is our physical universe, and ourselves
included. We are nothing less than a part of that Godhead - quite literally.
And just to show that this isn't the idle speculations of a mad scientist (however well credentialled), a colleague of Haisch when working with the
very same set of equations actually derived Newton's famous equation of the law of motion F=M/A!
My first inkling that the deceptively simple "Let there be light" might actually contain a profound cosmological truth came in early July 1992.
I was trying to wrap things up in my office in Palo Alto so that I could spend the rest of the summer doing research on the X-ray emission of stars at
the Max Planck Institute in Garching, Germany. I came in one morning just before my departure and found a rather peculiar message on my answering
machine; it had been left at 3 a.m.by a usually sober-minded colleague, Alfonso Rueda, a professor at California State University in Long Beach. He
was so excited by the results of a horrifically-long mathematical analysis he had been grinding through that he just had to tell me about it, knowing
full well I was not there to share the thrill.
What he had succeeded in doing was to derive the equation: F=ma. Details would follow in Germany.
Most people will take this in stride with a "so what?" or "what does that mean?" After all what are F, m and a, and what is so noteworthy about a
scientist deriving a simple equation? Isn't this what scientists do for a living? But a physicist will have an incredulous reaction because you are
not supposed to be able to derive the equation F=ma. That equation was postulated by Newton in his Principia, the foundation stone of physics, in
1687. A postulate is a law that you assume to be true, and from which other things follow: such as much of physics, for example, from that particular
postulate. You cannot derive postulates. How do you prove that one plus one equals two? The answer is, you don't. You assume that abstract numbers
work that way, and then derive other properties of addition from that basic assumption.
But indeed, as I discovered when I began to write up a research paper based on what Rueda soon sent to Garching, he had indeed derived Newton's
fundamental "equation of motion." And the concept underlying this analysis was the existence of a background sea of light known as the electromagnetic
zero-point field of the quantum vacuum.

Next, from Ervin Laszlo
Science and the Akashic Field, an Integral Theory of Everything, 2004
And, his other seminal work
Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos: The Rise of the Integral Vision of Reality
Ervin Laszlo is considered one of the foremost thinkers and scientists of our age, perhaps the greatest mind since Einstein. His principal focus of
research involves the Zero Point Field. He is the author of around seventy five books (his works having been translated into at least seventeen
languages), and he has contributed to over 400 papers. Widely considered the father of systems philosophy and general evolution theory, he has worked
as an advisor to the Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. He was also nominated for the Nobel
Peace Prize in both 2004 and 2005. A multidisciplinarian, Laszlo has straddled numerous fields, having worked at universities as a professor of
philosophy, music, futures studies, systems science, peace studies, and evolutionary studies. He was a sucessful concert pianist until he was thirty
In his view, the zero-point field (or the Akashic Field, as he calls it) is quite literally the "mind of God".
Naming Hal Puthoff, Roger Penrose, Fritz-Albert Popp, and a handful of others as "front line investigators", Laszlo quotes Puthoff who says of the
new scientific paradigm
[What] would emerge would be an increased understanding that all of us are immersed, both as living and physical beings, in an overall
interpenetrating and interdependant field in ecological balance with the cosmos as a whole, and that even the boundary lines between the physical and
"metaphysical" would dissolve into a unitary viewpoint of the universe as a fluid, changing, energetic/informational cosmological unity."
an excert from Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral
Theory of Everything
Akasha (a . ka . sha) is a Sanskrit word meaning "ether": all-pervasive space. Originally signifying "radiation" or "brilliance", in Indian
philosophy akasha was considered the first and most fundamental of the five elements - the others being vata (air), agni (fire), ap (water), and
prithivi (earth). Akasha embraces the properties of all five elements: it is the womb from which everything we percieve with our senses has emerged
and into which everything will ultimately re-descend. The Akashic Record (also called The Akashic Chronicle) is the enduring record of all that
happens, and has ever happened, in space and time."
