By, or just explaining Existence, the Universe and Every little thing with “God done it” is just substituting just one secret by appealing to an even greater secret. Just expressing “God finished it” has no precise explanatory ability. On the other hand, conveying Daily life, the Universe and Every little thing as a personal computer application application, a ‘God’ System as it had been, can account for any and all anomalies. With computer software all matters are achievable – even conveying God.
According to one particular theist of my on-line acquaintance, if God is familiar with every single probable outcome and what He will do in every single scenario, then there are no surprises… since a being who knows the overall flowchart doesn’t need to feel or ponder.
That raised an fascinating scenario for me.
“If God understands just about every achievable end result and what He will do in just about every situation… “
The phrase “what He will do” involves His actual believed, contemplation and selection-making. If not one is just suggesting that God is a pre-programmed robotic who will routinely answer and do A if B and C if not-B and so on and so on. Just about every possibility is in God’s ‘brain’ not since God deduced all possibilities by way of believed and contemplation and motive and deduction but due to the fact of this pre-programmed chip which is pre-programmed with all attainable eventualities and all reactions to just about every and every single chance hence getting rid of any need for pondering and deliberation and contemplation and decision-creating. In other words and phrases, God is akin to that laptop that last but not least defeated the human chess champion since the pc understood – in the similar way my theist mate says God is aware of – every single attainable transfer the human could make and what to do to counter all those moves. The laptop or computer had the chess flowchart mapped out. God is a laptop or computer! Which is seriously just what this theist was saying, or fairly suggesting. The proof…
“… considering that a currently being who understands the entire flowchart won’t require to think or ponder” seems to verify my premise. The words of a theist verifies my premise!
If God understands every attainable scenario – the define of the grasp flowchart that incorporates all probable flowcharts – then there is no free will concerned, just determinism. A personal computer application plan is deterministic there is no free will included.
Let us consider a closer seem!
God – assuming there really is a God of class – may or could not know the absolute future, but one particular could argue that God should know the foreseeable future due to the fact He established the certainly deterministic rules, rules and associations inherent in and of the actual physical sciences. Causality is absolute. If X right now, then Y tomorrow. Having said that, you will find one terrible can of worms, a unfastened cannon, in that deterministic circumstance – cost-free will.
It has been claimed that God is aware of the complete upcoming other than what individuals nasty free-willed humans (and lots of animals) can and will do. Nonetheless, God does know every single possible circumstance that all of those people cost-free-willed humans (and animals) can or will do. God is aware of all of the cost-free-willed human (and animal) flowcharts and as a result can cater prior to-the-reality to offer with what ever situation eventuates. That struck me as equal as the pc plan that defeated the human chess winner. That computer system program software realized the whole flowchart of each individual possible shift the human chess winner could make and so how to counteract each individual and each and every possible human move. So, God is akin to a laptop, or superior nevertheless a laptop software program method.
At very first I thought that equating God with a personal computer was amazing but I was incorrect about equating God with a computer. God just isn’t the laptop. God is just the true laptop application application that operates the digital truth ‘game’ that we simply call Lifetime, the Universe and All the things. Let us just contact this the ‘God’ System, the laptop or computer application method that can deal with all of individuals free of charge will opportunities or scenarios. In a laptop / video clip activity, the pc computer software method ‘knows’ the whole possible video game flowchart and has to cater for all attainable eventualities generated by the absolutely free-willed human player(s). But take note that there is nothing supernatural about a laptop application software and consequently if God is akin to a computer system software package software then there is nothing at all supernatural about God.
So the question is not how is God the creator but alternatively how was God the made? Here is a state of affairs. It is really the calendar year 2525 and hugely technologically innovative beings (almost certainly human) have designed the most sophisticated and advanced computer system application plan yet accomplished, which they get in touch with ‘God’ (or perhaps the “God’ Application) and this ‘God’ Program produces and controls a digital fact landscape termed Lifetime, the Universe and Every little thing. We, such as you and I, are just ‘existing’ as section of what we perceive as our actually actual 2017 truth but true we ‘exist’ in that ‘God’ produced digital 2017 fact landscape – 2017 staying part of the ‘God’-produced simulation. That digital fact landscape referred to as Lifestyle, the Universe and Every little thing functions. Yet again, there is very little supernatural about it.
But a laptop or computer application plan – the ‘God’ System – requires a creator. Humans are that creator, consequently ‘God’ was created in our graphic so to communicate.
So the question is, a variation on a former topic, who or what truly wrote the computer system software software, the ‘God’ Software? But whatsoever who or what programmed the ‘God’ Software, that programmer(s) nevertheless again would not have to be supernatural even if the programmer(s) are so highly technologically innovative that they may well appear to be magical or supernatural – Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law.
Dropping down 1 level, we’re not supernatural yet we application our video / computer system video games by means of our resourceful talents and potentially those movie / personal computer video game characters we have developed might see us as supernatural, and of system they would be incorrect. 1 may possibly see a parallel in this article with some of our existing religions.
It is normally claimed that God ‘exists’ in a timeless and changeless condition which is absolute garbage IMHO due to the fact the extremely act of initial though necessitates a temporal existence and a temporal existence requires adjust.
But, a laptop or computer application software – the ‘God’ System – just isn’t of training course timeless and it is just not changeless and it will not exist in a timeless or changeless condition of existence. However it doesn’t consider, make a decision, ponder, deliberate or regardless of what other synonyms you treatment to use.
Backing up again one degree, here’s a simple application of the ‘God’ System. Now if you are inclined to acknowledge dependent on one book’s texts, that hundreds of individuals claimed they saw a supernatural Jesus (just before, during and following) even even though there is no impartial verification of any of this that you your self could make by by yourself and for on your own with regards to those supernatural statements, and yet you are (likely) not ready to settle for the (normally way far more recent) testimony of hundreds of thousands of people around hundreds of many years who have witnessed other (it won’t be able to be thus it is just not vs. I know what I saw) anomalies – ghosts, dragons, fairies, aliens, Bigfoot, etc. – then that’s a double standard. A person is no far more credible than the other. But both equally can be assimilated into the ‘God’ Method (or in extra popular parlance, the Simulation Speculation) devoid of any problem.
Here’s one more variation on that state of affairs or concept. If we are virtual beings ‘existing’ in a personal computer computer software program – the ‘God’ Program – that has created our simulated landscape called Daily life, the Universe and Everything then there is no reason why all mythological beings, from dragons to Horus from leprechauns to Odin from fairies to Apollo, couldn’t have also ‘existed’ albeit almost. What application can convey into existence, program can terminate. That similarly applies to all of the alleged events and figures in the Bible, together with the supernatural beings – angels, demons, as perfectly as the Trinity by itself. Further, it easily accounts for any and all supernatural activities or miracles linked in Biblical texts, like the Sun and the Moon standing nevertheless in the sky the development of a girl from a male rib Jonah in the ‘whale’ living to inform the tale or the many accounts of what quantities to pure alchemy. With laptop or computer application programs, all issues are pretty much feasible.
Dropping down just one stage yet again, there are mythological-themed pc / video clip online games you can purchase right now that characteristic ghosts, pixies, dragons, unicorns, flying horses, as well as Thor, Zeus, and so on. In fact I would not be amazed if another person, somewhere hadn’t created a movie / computer match that includes Jesus and firm.
