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 AjDeath, Didact

Quote: "Grantaire":8quh5cio
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.[/quote:8quh5cio] What I would have to say to all of that is, well, science is not the be all, end all of humanity. To me all science is human words formed by observations, more precisley, useless. How the hell do we know that everything is based on atomic structure/particles? We don't, it is just our latest observation and humanity's infinite pride demands that these facts(which is all just really conjecture) as truth (laws and so forth). How can humanity determine the color blue? Really it could be anything. view post
