Is the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? posted 07 September 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionIs the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? by Grantaire, Moderator

I believe things do happen for a reason. Know the exact configuration of the universe at any one instant of time, and you can calculate its exact state at any other time. Needless to say, quite impossible for us to do, but scientific determinism is the point. Other than quantum effects (which perhaps may have rules governing them, even if we can't discern them yet), science makes particles and forces follow certain rules, that allow us to predict cause and effect. The exact state of the universe is the result of every motion of an atom, every exchange of forces, etc for all time. view post
