Although there is no God, Heaven DOES exist nonetheless

Just to assure people. I am an atheist so this is not a religious rant. It is founded on science. It is as short as I could compose it in order to retain an adequate description of the theory. Most sensible people in general no longer believe that Heaven [as a genuine place where our soul can exist ...

Are we not obliged to look for it however?

Re: Is our understanding of time and space lacking?

"It would be a very boring day when we finally say, "We know it all" - all scientists become redundant, universities shut down, new factual books are no longer needed - I hope we never get there". With that attitude we never will. People with their pesky questions that you can't ...

Re: Is our understanding of time and space lacking?

Any larger and more comprehensive model of time and space would naturally be required to encompass both GR and QED and would need to accommodate both without prejudicing the validity of either. I think it would be fair to assume that any encompassing model would also be required to be the fundamenta...

Is our understanding of time and space lacking?

The phenomenon of particles interacting instantaneously over distance (non-locality), is an observable verifiable fact. Despite decades of theorizing and speculation by some of the greatest minds however, a definitive explanation of the process at work when non-locality is observed remains lacking. ...

Re: I believe there is a lifeforce in the universe.

The first are longitudinal sound waves; the second quantum vibrations (I can't think of a better description) and the moon-earth motion is gravitational. (I don't see that a DNA molecule revolves.) However, although all these things are governed by the laws of physics, I don't see the point in any ...

Re: I believe there is a lifeforce in the universe.

If you wish to use an analogy for an entity, instead of discussing the entity itself, the onus is on you to show that the analogy you choose is, in fact, analogous. You have not done this; you have merely assumed this. analogy [ə nálləji] (plural analogies) n 1. comparison: a comparison between two...

Re: I believe there is a lifeforce in the universe.

It is not entirely unreasonable to suppose this, but it would be difficult to produce evidence. Our civilisation, for example, is moving away from its earlier belief in a purposeful creator. There may have been other civilisations that never developed such an idea in the first place. How would we k...

Re: I believe there is a lifeforce in the universe.

Thanks to all for the welcome to this forum. I should perhaps clarify at this juncture that I have by no means entirely formulated the hypothesis and am still in the early stages of same. The purpose of the thread is to get as many opinions on the subject as possible in order to further crystallise ...

I believe there is a lifeforce in the universe.

To ellucidate the subject of the title of this thread. I do not believe in the existence of 'a god'. However I do believe that when possible, and wherever it can, the universe appears to encourage the flourishing of life. For example, here on earth there has been the fairly recent discovery of shrim...
