I have just finished reading this book, which put me in a religious mood. My religious mood is involved in the statement "Nothing can rise higher than its source."
Science claims the universe is made of blind force and energy (matter = interrupted energy, energy at a low rate of vibration). Yet, we humans possess qualities higher than these, namely life and mind.
Could life and mind arise from blind energy?
What does this mean...? Please explain.
"matter = interrupted energy, energy at a low rate of vibration"
My guess is it means that matter can be converted into energy (photons, etc).
Then, those two concepts are not related in any way. The qualities humans posses has nothing to do with the law of energy conservation. Apples and oranges.
I didn't mean energy conservation. I just linked that because on that page there is the sentence "Matter particles (such as electrons) can be converted to non-matter (such as photons), or even into potential or kinetic energy." In my interpretation, this is saying matter = energy.
So no, I'm not talking about energy conservation, only the fact that if the only thing there is (in the universe) is energy or matter, I don't know whence life should come, as these clearly do not contain it. I can say this in another way: nothing manifests in the effect, unless it was in the cause.
Uh. Old Faithful? The Space Shuttle? The Hubble? Voyager? Martin Luther King, Jr.?
That's an interesting question. I guess that is the crux of my problem. It's easy to say everything just happened, but it is hard to believe without proof. Life is definitely an enigma.

Whether your view is religious or scientific. And if you think the Universe is a steady state(as in, has no beginning or end),then try to explain that instead. Thank you.

I've read about many different theories about death and what happens. It is the main question that is in the back of everyone's mind. It's very difficult to picture it or to question the point of existence. The fact that we are here is a miracle in itself, who says that some sort of afterlife isn't...

Where did matter and energy come from?Where did the first particle of matter come from? If nothing only produces nothing and nothing existed before the existence of the world, how did something (matter/energy) become created from nothing?

Is there a treatment for God addiction?. Excuse me for questionng everything. Never did get the illusion of blood or body of Jesus metaphor, it seem like vampire-ism or cannibalism. Never got these wars over imaginary friends or killing someone for working on Sunday. This karma runs over the dogma....

As long as you are a good person, does it matter what religion you believe in?

So many people insist that Atheism is detrimental to society while religion enhanced society. Hmmm, now let us see this objectively instead of subjectively. Religions have been the source of wars and other types of divisions among humankind. Religions have also been the source of...
