This is a general comment:
You don't know if there is a Mind that brings the universe into existence
all the time or not. You have no idea. It sure as hell doesn't want to talk
to you. You aren't likely to prove anything one way or the other without
there being a point in the future that someone discovers that what you
discovered is not actually a discovery but instead another erroneously
interpreted observation that ended up producing another illusion that
humanity would eventually overcome.
People thought the earth was flat, that the universe was held together by
gravity alone, that Venus was around the same temp as earth, that Jupiter
and Saturn gave off no light of their own. In 1892 at the Chicago worlds
fair scientists announced that they had come to the end of their search for
knowledge then bang Madame Curie and others found radiation. Just for a
second pull your head out of your bum. That isn't where it belongs. You are
in the same boat as the flat earthers.
Now you have your own religion, it is as fundamentalist as any other
fundamentalist religion, just as prejudiced toward the truth, whatever it
may be and you are as stuck as all the others. Bokonon in Vonnegutts "Cats
Cradle" "Fish gotta sleep, Bird gotta land, man gotta tell himself that he
understand" Thats what you folks are up to. Thats all you are up for. If
you couldn't somehow tell yourself that you understand then you would have
a bunch of big questions that would tear you apart like the savage white
sharks that big questions are.
Smarten up kids. Your world is about to change dramatically in ways you
cannot imagine. Your teachers have lied to you. You can't think your way
out of a paper bag. Begin to think, not something everyone else already
thinks, but on your own. Question everything, go to the bottom of the
rabbit hole and don't come back up until you can say "i'm not sure this is
the answer but it might be and i need to think it over with the rest of you
who are actually thinking and not quoting Richard Dawkins or some other
Don't get me wrong. I admire you for taking the natural step of moving
away from fundamentalist religion but what did you do? You went all the way
the other direction. Now you are a rabid fundamentalist atheist though you
have no proof of anything. [HEY FOLKS, CHECK OUT HOW HIS SENSES LIED TO HIM!]
Now let the pendulum that you are swing to the moderate, questioning state and join the exploratory conversation. Okay?
Ahhhh doesn't that feel better? Now you are turning and burning.
