Chaos Theory: An Argument for God

 

A member of today’s modern society could be forgiven if, upon hearing the words “religion” and “science” spoken in the same sentence, they tighten their lips and immediately shuffle their feet nervously. This would, of course, be done to avoid the obvious offense they might cause if they were to continue the conversation because after all, it is common knowledge that these two topics of interest are constantly engaged in warfare with one another.Β Or so the story appears to go. In fact, there are many ways to approach the religion versus science debate. You can either believe religion fills in what science leaves out, or that science is actually run by God. One may trump the other in your opinion, or perhaps they’re equal. Perhaps they both work together, science answering the “How” questions, and religion answering the “Why”. But theories have arisen that actually find God in science, especially quantum science.Kenneth Miller offers a theory that poses reconciliation between science and religion that utilizes the most modern scientific advances in quantum studies to show that, not only is it possible that God could actively influence the world today via atomic particle’s chaotic motion, but also that human free will can exist in the midst of what is perchance a divine plan.
Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that, due to mathematical limits on accuracy, we can never know a particle’s exact momentum and position because as one’s measurement becomes more accurate, the other becomes less so. This creates an inherent element of chaos (in the sense that it appears this way to us) built into the workings of the universe that cannot be fully comprehended. But there is an argument that this chaos might just be the perfect opportunity for God to influence the world via controlling the motions of the particles.Unlike other constructs humanity has created throughout history in order to make sense of the world that science eventually debunks (i.e., a chariot pulling the sun across the sky as in Greek myth), Miller’s theory does not have the potential to fall into the God-of-the-gaps trap or face debunking by the scientific community-no matter how much they may want to. This is due to the fact that the inherent uncertainty in the motion of particles can never be predicted; it’s not just due to lack of technology.Without being able to predict the particle’s motion, there is no way to disprove Miller’s theory that God is influencing these particles. Thus Miller is able to create a theory that cannot be disproven. And with new scientific discoveries being made every day, there’s a good chance that as time progresses, more harmony will prevail and theories arise, than it is for an endless feud to continue on.

The Stepping Stone

As this is my foray into blogging, I was pretty confused as what to write about. After thinking a lot I decided to keep it simple. No hullabaloo about the choice of topic for the first post!(which is pretty uncommon as people take hot and trending topics to get the maximum hits!) But unlike others, I had inhibitions about blogging. I don’t know if I was right or wrong but I thought blogging was about useless people who have nothing to do! Yes! That’s true.
Gradually while surfing and job hunting[Still hunting :(] I realized how important blogging is considered thesedays.I mean you get to know what is happening around you(courtesy hot tags), you make good contacts and most importantly when you get the feedback(comments), you get to know what others think about your vision or thought and that is the best part of blogging I think.
As far as my interests are concerned,I love reading about psychological stuff.And whenever I get some time I utilize it and try to discover myself which is very important. Apart from all this, I love to learn new things. May it be a new technology or something in which I believe in(like meditation though I never meditate! :P) but still I like to learn it. After all,whatever you learn , does helps you somewhere or the other.
In the end I would like to mention some lines that I read somewhere and like to share with you all..
The hunger will give you everthing,
And it will take from you everything.
It will cost you your life,
And there isn’t damn thing you can do about it.
But knowing this, of course,
Is what ultimately sets you free.
Please feel free to share your comments.
