Religion And Science


There are a number of sorts of narratives and coordinating principles.   
For example: belief in God inspires some scientists that regard mathematics as a procedure to "glance at God's cards" and also to get closer to Him.  Another instance: that the pursuit of scientific jobs enriches one's national pride and can be inspired by it.  Science is frequently corrupted as a way to support nationalistic and racist claims.

The fundamental units of all narratives are understood by their impacts on the surroundings.   All four constructs cannot be directly detected, but the simple fact of the presence is derived from the own effects.

Granted, God's consequences are discernible only from the psychological and social (or psychopathological) lands.  However, this detected constraint doesn't leave Him "actual ".  The hypothesized presence of God parsimoniously describes a myriad apparently unrelated happenings and, therefore, conforms to the principles regulating the formulation of scientific concepts.

The locus of all God's hypothesized presence is, obviously and entirely, in the minds of believers.  However, this does not make Him real.  The contents of the heads really are as genuine as anything "out there".  

However, is God's presence "authentic " - or is He just a figment of the neediness and creativity?

Truth is that the measure of this ability of these models to explain phenomena and forecast them.  God's presence (in people's heads ) succeeds to perform both.  For example, supposing that God exists enables us to predict lots of the behaviours of individuals who profess to think in Him.  The presence of God is, therefore, undoubtedly true (in this particular formal and rigorous sense).

However, does God exist out folks 's heads?  Is He an objective thing, independent of what individuals might or might not believe about Him?  

If all sentient beings, including all people, stop thinking that there's God - would survive this renunciation?  

Known items are independent of the occurrence of observers (even though the Copenhagen interpretation of Quantum Mechanics disputes that ).  Believed matters are determined by the occurrence of believers.

We are aware that the Sun exists.  We overlook 't understand that God exists.  We feel that God is - but we don't and cannot understand it, in the scientific sense of this term. 

We can even design experiments to establish that electrons, quarks, and black holes exist. 

However, we can't design even 1 experiment to falsify the existence of a God who is out the heads of believers (and, so, if the experiment fails, then establish God exists "out there").  Additionally, we can't design even 1 experiment to establish that God exists beyond the heads of believers. 

The world is so intricate and varied that surely it involves the existence of a supreme intellect, the planet 's programmer and founder, known by a few as "God".  On the flip side, the planet 's abundance and variety could be accounted for utilizing modern scientific concepts like evolution and the big bang.  There's not any requirement to introduce God to the equations.

Nonetheless, it's likely that God is in charge of it .  The dilemma is that we cannot design even 1 experiment to falsify the concept, which God made the Universe (and, so, when the experiment fails, establish that God is, really, the entire world 's originator).  Additionally, we can't design even 1 experiment to establish that God created the entire world. 

We could, however, designing several experiments to falsify the scientific concepts which describe the creation of this Universe (and, consequently, if such experiments fail, give these concepts considerable support).  We could even design experiments to show the scientific concepts that describe the creation of this Universe. 

It doesn't signify that these concepts are completely accurate and immutable.  They aren't.  Our present scientific theories are partially true and therefore are bound to change with new knowledge obtained by experimentation.  Our present scientific theories will probably likely be replaced by newer, truer theories.  However, all future scientific concepts are going to be falsifiable and testable.

Knowledge and perception are like water and oil.   Knowledge doesn't direct to belief and perception doesn't yield knowledge.  Belief can yield certainty or strongly-felt remarks.  But belief can't lead to knowledge.

However, both understood things and considered things exist.  The prior exist "out there" and the latter "within our heads " and just there.  But they're no less real because of that.
