by not understanding a God concept, do we force fit random exhistance?

    How is quantum physics random?

    I posted a question once, not on the forums, asking if anything is random and people answered with quantum mechanics/physics. without really knowing much about the subject.

    To this day,I still feel as if humans are simply not yet capable of understanding the causes/factors that determine quantum physics.

    If this is true and after working at the Oak Ridge Laboratories these past few years after I came off of world travel, I do feel it is so.

    Watching researchers at work, I am curious why scientist's refuse to say that they just dont fully understand quantum physics, instead of saying that they understand everything and therefore  since they can't determine the exhistance of something, it must be random existance, and nothing more.

    Does science have the last word on the subject because they truly can not explain universal exhistance?

    Is God just random exhistance?

      Everything that exists is a manifestation of the primordial conscious intention TO BE.  Since the limited human rational mind can't directly perceive the totality of the ultimate ground of existence in its (the totality's) quantum (unbounded by time or space) state, questions about the nature of God can't be adequately answered by narrowly focused and narrowly defined concepts.  Instead, the best way to explore this type of subject matter is to try to discover whether you can access a portal within yourself that leads to complete attunement with the quantum source of all that is. 

      Each of us is endowed with rational awareness and intuitive awareness.  The rational awareness faculty helps us to navigate the three-dimensional field of matter, while the intuitive awareness helps us to tap into the quantum field of consciousness, within which resides the total picture of infinite possibilities. 

      If you truly want expand your awareness of humanity's (and your) purpose on this Earth, investigate the wide variety of practices designed to help people to open their chakras (wheels of energy transfer that feed the body): particularly the life-governing heart chakra.  Finally, the quality of the question you ask determines the quality of the answer you get, and the lens through which you frame your query determines the context in which you receive your answer!  You stand to benefit tremendously from letting the information in my comments soak in deeply.

      Peace and Blessings to all of you who've taken on the daunting challenge of pondering this subject,
      Dr. Tim

    I stated the other day in the forums that Quantum Random Theory dictates there is a God who would have come into creation at some pont in time, and since he is omnipotent and omniscient, then his creation time would be irrelavent, and that he would be present in all times and ages and places because by his nature he could minipulate and move through time. I would have liked your input on that dutch.

      If things are indeed occuring randomly, then no. The Created can not create its Creator. So Random occurance is truly without a God. 

      Another look would be to consider that if God was created randomly as then would he even be able to crate a random creation? for if thats possible, thatt implies he could control his own creation sense he could control random occurance? not possible, as during his creation, he did not fully exhist could not be cognitive of anything at that point. so, random is making some sense here.

      I am begining to think that by pure science knowledge, understanding God is not possible at all, and thus Scientists, real ones I mean, explain it away as random occurance, and avoid the possibility of it.

      its like the chicken and egg thing, kind of.

    And now they think the universe is finite... how does that affect random theory, Dutch? No infinite universe, no infinite possibilities.

    The god concept is a theologian gimmick, not worth the effort. Plain and simple.

    It is the people who continue to try and fit science to fit the theory, instead of science figuring it out.

    Since the creation of the Universe was explained in your other thread, it simply shows that a god never needed to exist for it to happen.

    Life, all Life is part of the natural process of the evolution of the Universe. No other explanation needed.

        Hey TMMason, I wasn't addressing you or dutch. I was addressing Jerami. He enjoys throwing out random statements, that usually have nothing to do with threads, but makes a point. However, he isn't always on topic, which is nothing new.

            I said if ....IF....it was random, then God was not needed, but is it?

            The Universe is finite, predictable, calculatable, if it was not we coud not predict abd pull of space flight, or propulsion in a space vacume?

            is it because they can not explain what they are seeing, that they jump on the random occurance merry-go round? 

            do not add to it. please.

          Sorry Dutch, that was covered in an earlier open forum of his peers. I will find it if I can, it was part of a series of award winning speeches he gave that are recorded on video and available on BBC TV.
          Anyone who wants to remain ignorant can.
          Thank you for looking at the video, and I appreciate that it is fantasmagorical. So is the science that led to the theories that support it.
          There are a handful of scientists as there were in Einstein's time, who have led us to the understanding we have so far, to deny that understanding is to deny life itself.
          Einstein's theories are not easily understood by laymen, and nor are the sciences that are within something as simple as a laptop.

          I say read it as I have read religion then offer an opinion.

          Krauss offers the easiest basic understanding and the awards he has won include those for being able to explain it in a simple way for laypeople to enjoy and wonder at.

                      Me too, and it changes as theories stack up across disciplines.
                      I am used to having to update what I know.

                      I used to rebuild engines based on what I knew, now I decide which way to proceed based on what some dumb assed on-board computer tells me.

                      I still need to read between the lines, as often the computer is lying because it was lied to by a sensor! smile
