Does God fit with science?

When you look at the bigger picture, those who believe in God, many gods, or look to science essentially believe in the same thing.  As someone who is doubtful about the inexplicable, I gained greater access to the knowledge contained by the Bible by looking at God in a more scientific way.

GOD = Great Outward Directions

I had thoughts of connecting God with the universe, but for all we know, the universe could even be only a small part of something much bigger.  The idea of God or gods is a way to understand that which can not be understood, but on a personal level so that people can connect with the unknown as something to honour and respect.

Christianity should encourage science and learning more about Great Outward Directions.  Maybe there will be findings that go against literal beliefs contained within the Bible, but who’s to say that everything contained within the Bible is intended to be understood perfectly literally?

In God’s infinite wisdom, I’m sure he had some fun using metaphors!

    I found your blog by searching the word atheism. I have been an atheist for 30 years. The worst thing about being an atheist is you have no hope of an afterlife. Thats why I decided to create a religion based almost entirely on science with the gaps that science cant yet explain filled in with religious theory (no deity). Please check it out at http://bangism.wordpress.com/. Love to know what you think.

      I read through all of your material – interesting concept with the universe infinitely looping! I think that might be a tough sell as an afterlife idea though. But you do touch on one aspect of a scientific afterlife we all live – all of the particles, molecules, and all of those fun little bits we are made up of do enjoy life after being a part of each of us! Reincarnation! Just as Buddha supposed!

      Another afterlife aspect is knowledge and feelings that people have of or towards you. After your life, the memories of you live on. You can look at how you are viewed in your afterlife in a heaven and hell sort of way, but I think the heaven and hell aspects of Christianity also affect people in their day-to-day life as well.

      So really, everyone has a scientific afterlife. An Athiest afterlife, even! And wouldn’t you want to make the best of your life to leave a positive legacy to be remembered by when you’re gone?

    I think, regardless of which view of God you hold that this is an element of faith. Belief in God allows us to makes terms with chaos and the unknown. The way you expressed it here is very nice.
