Proof of God

Man sees this world...plants, animals, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, stars. He sees certain design in them...certain creation in them...certain order in them. He asks a question, who created it? He refers this unknown creator of orders as God. [Orders = God]

Man sees a fellow man gets sick and die. He doesn't know why or who does it. He also doesn't understand many things that happen around him. He could not find any reason, logic, or order. Though it looks random without any reason or logic or order, he concludes that it must be somebody doing it for some reason. He refers this unknown creator of disorders as God. [Disorders = God]

In general, whether the order that amazes him or disorder that confuses him, he refers unknown as God.[Unknown = God]

Later on, he discovers some reason behind some of the unknowns. He finds some logic and reason for some disorders and recognizes the order in it. He concludes all disorders must have some orders behind it. Now he looks for an order behind each and every disorder. He finds more and more orders behind many disorders. But he stumbles at certain inherent disorder (randomness). He tries harder and harder to find an order behind this inherent disorder.

Now he slowly sees a possible big picture. He finds a law of nature that concludes, a pure disorder (equilibrium) is the ultimate destiny of the universe. He recognizes how some orders (including galaxies, stars, planets, life, mind, etc.) can be created out of disorders temporarily; but ultimately leading towards its final destiny, a pure disorder. And hence he lives with some orders (predictable-s) and some disorders (unpredictable-s). Even if it is correct, he does not understand why nature follows this law. He continues his search!

In any case, he recognizes certain deep mystery in the universe when he looks for its ultimate origin, and wonders whether he could understand it fully. As usual, many jump to conclude this unknown as God. But few recognize that God is much bigger unknown than the unknown it tries to explain!

At the end, after all [God = unknown]. Does God exist? Yes, because unknown still exists! But God is not what you think it is, because it is unknown!

Reason, logic or order - are they same? Science (and God aka randomness) has nothing to do with order or disorder which are our definitions.

Yeah, all 3 words have slightly different meaning. I mean that if we discover a reason, we find its logic, which gives us rules or order in which it works.

I do not understand your second part. Anyhow, I refer, randomness = disorder. I'm fundamentally talking about the implications of entropy principle of Second law of thermodynamics. Please refer the following for technical analysis.

Science = Understanding-process-of-anything. Understanding the nature of orders and disorders is science; the above link is actual scientific analysis.

There are also some people for whom God is indeed a known entity. Not completely known though, because logic and reason can be limiting.

Very thought-provoking article!

Thanks dominic for your comments. May I rephrase your sentence the following way...

"There are also some people for whom God is indeed a known entity" and it is their FAITH, and beyond reason. When comes to REASON (scientific reason; not people's perceived reason), still God = Unknown.

Well, if unknown thing is contrued as God, and still if it continues to be unknown it remains a mystery and we keep searching for the truth! Then there is no certaininty in our belief in the existence of God?If God exists there has to be a certainity and we should be able to feel him and should be part of our day today lives during our Good (order) and hard times(disorder)!

Thanks for your comments.

Good (order) and hard times(disorder) - this is totally wrong. Order and disorder are related with randomness as we describe natural phenomena in mathematics and science; nothing to do with good or bad.

Human mind is full of fallacies and fantasies. Cave man invented the concept of God to deal with unknowns. And it is slowly evolved into huge integral part of human society and human mind. Now you want feel him!
