Skip to comments.Can Physics Prove the Existence of God?
Posted on 07/20/2010 6:09:03 PM PDT by firerosemom
The last few years have seen several books championing agnosticism or atheism making their way into the popular press. These books leave most informed readers quite baffled, because they ignore the vast majority (if not the entirety) of the considerable evidence for theism provided by physics and philosophy during the last few decades. This evidence is capable of grounding reasonable and responsible belief in a super-intelligent, transcendent, creative power that stands at the origins of our universe or any hypothetically postulated multiverse. The main purpose of this book is to give a brief synopsis of this evidence to readers who are interested in exploring the strongest rational foundation for faith that has come to light in human history.

i believe it can, but the ‘powers that be’ will alway make sure it wont, if ya get my drift...
Good question - how might it do that? Would there be a series of indicators that, if lined up, would show that there is no originator of everything? Is that what you mean?
Only if GOD wants it to.
But wouldn’t a reasoned, rational proof or dis-proof of God’s existence be able to be spread far and wide, esp. on the internet? I’d doubt that it could be squelched so easily.
i believe there are plenty of rational points already out there that show the existance of God, all of the net and in the non-cyber world....and look where we are.....
True - no one has ever seen God as He is, but what about those who have never been exposed to formalized religion of any sort - would they be able to know that a Creator exists independent of someone evangelizing them?
Yes, of course it can because God created the physics of our universe!
The existence of God proves the illusion or maybe allusion of Physics..
It is considered impossible, logically, to prove a null hypothesis so I would have to say no. It cannot be proved that here are no living dinosaurs, for example.
I beg to differ. Everyone has seen God as He is ... right in front of us, within us ... all of us, every moment of every day. All around us, all the time.
Just that we tend to focus only on our immediate surroundings and existence, but that doesn't mean that 'God as He is' isn't everywhere at once and completely within His creation
Prior to the Ascension of Jesus into heaven, He told the disciples that He would no longer be with them in the flesh. The disciples were worried about how they would carry on. Jesus told them that they would have to have faith in Him.
Jesus also told the disciples to spread His Word to everyone, every tribe, every nation. Jesus made no mention of previous religious experience as being a requirement for His grace and salvation.
Faith in Jesus is literally the bedrock of Christianity. We must trust that Jesus is our Savior.
And I trust in Him. Jesus is even more real to me than anything that is tangible to me. And I thank God for Him... as I am so fallen, only Jesus can raise me... and the rest of us.
Not yet, according to Stephen Hawkings, who also says nothing in physics, including big bang, disproves God.
Last year while taking Discrete Mathematics I found this short paper titled, “An Inductive Proof for God’s Existence II”, by Anthony J. Fejfar.
Its almost as simple as just believing.
But what if someone doesn’t trust in Jesus, for example, if they were raised in an environment that either mocked or ignored religion? Would they be unable to ever believe in a creator unless they had a “St. Paul” experience?
Besides, the essence of Christianity is faith. Seeking proof through science is about the same mentality as those guys in the the medieval days seeking proof through “relics”.
It’s an evasion of just using faith.
I don’t know. Sometimes people become curious about things mocked by those who raise them. A child raised in an environment that mocks religious, eventually might seek to know why it was so menacing to their parent.
And i can’t prove it. But i think God wouldn’t even allow science to reveal him anyway. If we could just build the right kind of radio-telescope and “prove” him, that would basically undo the whole way we are supposed to find him.
Just my opinion there,,,
