Conjecture to Composure

Updated on February 28, 2013

Gravitas.....Veritas

The concept that whatever initiated the beginning of time in cosmic terms must have been present before time began is slowly becoming an accepted scientific certainty.Was it a transcendental entity we now call God? or was it something less meta-physical, like Gravity.?

The truth and rationality of a non-material reality has been questioned by those who believe that any entity that is not sensed physically by man could not exist. By inference, they posit that any concept that is not physically definable does not exist.

The concept of "justice" would have remained just a concept until man made it "real", by investing on it , meaning, purpose and verity. We certainly could not sense "justice" in any physical way, but it exist in the real world because it touches us and makes as act in ways that we may not otherwise act if it did not exist.

Similarly, the concept of a Deity is only a concept ( and to atheists should always remain just a concept), but man because he is a sentient, volitional and creative being, invested in the concept ---meaning, purpose and verity. Thus God exist, not because we could place him into a quantifiably verifiable form, but because He touches us and makes us act in ways that we may not otherwise act if He did not exist.

Similarly, the concept of Gravity would have remained just a concept, until a singularly unique human(Sir Isaac Newton), gave it meaning, purpose and verity. It exists not because we could sense it with a physical form, but because it affects us and makes us act in ways that we may not otherwise act if it did not exist.

I believe that the reason the universe and every material objects in it have have held up for so long without degrading and decomposing into total and unremiting chaos is because some kind of "supernatural force " is holding it together. God?=Gravity? in one congruent entity?

It is entirely possible that time and space are one and the same thing, just as much as mass and energy are one and the same thing... the unity in duality....as one congruent entity. The unrelenting beauty and order of our universe seem to bear that concept. To the degree that that beauty and order impacts us here on earth, we nonetheless mostly forget that it takes a whole lot of effort for SOMEONE/SOMETHING to maintain the congruence and the unity. Which speaks to the idea that there was and is a grand design to our existence.

And what about the idea that Time (at least from our linear perception of it), and Space ( at most from our circular conception of it) is a continuum that neither has a beggining nor an end. That our universe came into being only as a "bounce" within the confines of that continuum, not the Big Bang that astrophysicists have proposed, as the beginning of it/us all.

No matter how we define our individual lives,, the meaning of existence must always be anchored on one basic undergirding verity...that we are here to validate its reality because without us (or some other sentient beings on some other planetray systems), existence (and the reality of it) does not exist. Nothing in the creation-evolution of sentient life was random and accidental... everything that we perceive( and still have not perceived) have been planned and schemed and pre-ordained.

      Daniel:

      Of course not. Disagreements when discussed in a civil manner is always a source of satisfaction for me... and I hope for you too.

      Hello Daniel:

      Thank God we are in some agreement, and thanks for saying that it made you think.

      I agree, just because it cannot be directly proven does not mean that it does not exist. That is why scientists use induction and develop theories for things that cannot be definitely proven. Many do not understand that gravity is still considered a theory, yet it is a commonly accepted life truth.

      I like your advice to atheists to understand God as a concept. Personally, I like to view all religious teachings as conceptual ideals that should be followed. This is kind of like Plato's idea of forms.

      A good hub that makes one think!
