Do you believe a God exists? posted 01 September 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by RedShift, Candidate

I suppose you could class science and religion as "two sides of the same coin", in that they both really rely on faith. For all our experimentation, we still can't state things as facts, truly. All we can say is that until this moment, everything has always obeyed the law of gravity. That dosen't mean it exists. It could just be an immense coincidence. It could be God playing a massive practical joke on us.
That's how I view that, but I thin you were trying to say something different, and I just want to question whether, as you said, we cannot hope to understand the universe (by understand I do not mean be able to comprehend its entire state at any one time). Vast amounts of complexity can result from very simple rules, like in the game Go, for example. Lots of complexity and strategy, but you can "understand" the basis of it very easily. view post
