The very fact that we can observe the universe and express our observations in mathematical formulae demonstrates the incredibly ordered and intelligible nature of our universe. The question is ‘where does this order come from?’ I find the the atheist’s answer that it’s simply the result of chance, as if order could come from chaos, absurd & intellectually dissatisfying.
The above quote—that is unattributed by the way—is the epitome of predilection. It not only asserts that there’s order in the universe, but it also implies a being that keeps this order. Also, since chance is dissatisfying, the quote implies that there’s purpose. Therefore, the quote drags along predilections that are ironically in favor of one god and one god only. This is precisely why Christianity is dissatisfying; Christianity is based on arrogant and naive ignorance—“I don’t know; therefore god.” I’m going to go out on a crazy loop here and tell you something I’ve been noticing. If there is some maximal being, it isn’t your god. Why? Well, in recent times, I’ve been given ammunition, per se, prior to seeing a quote, post, etc. in favor of some Christian presupposition. And it has happened yet again. I find it funny; you post this quote that states that order cannot be the result of chance and chaos, and prior to reading it, I read an article titled “How Order Arises from the Random Motion of Particles in the Cosmos.” Here’s a snippet:
The surprising discovery of self-organized electromagnetic fields in counter-streaming ionized gases (also known as plasmas) will give scientists a new way to explore how order emerges from chaos in the cosmos.
DOE/Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. “How order arises from the random motion of particles in the cosmos.” ScienceDaily, 4 Oct. 2012. Web. 5 Oct. 2012.
Quite the coincidence, but it happens often. I’m not the type to be superstitious, but if there’s some maximal being out there, its sending quite the message: I’m tired of some people thinking I must be Yahweh. How would I translate such a message? You have other options; whycatholicism sounds like petty marketing to me, and quite frankly, Catholicism is a bad product.
