I believe in God. Here's why.
I understand the universe and life to be the product of three fundamentals.
Mass, energy, information.
That's nature. More than ever, in our Information Age we should understand how these three interact.
'No God' basically asserts that information arose out of mass and energy.
Just do the math and look at reality. It doesn't seem to add up.
It seems to make more sense that information and energy came first, then mass. Of the three, mass appears to be the most fabricated. Energy organized into division upon division and well packaged boundaries. Remember information is neither energy or mass.
An example of how information interacts with mass is a computer file.
No matter how big the file is, the mass of your computer remains the same.
That file could be transferred to print on paper, a CD or your ipad. The information is identical, but the platforms change. The mass is just the medium that carries the information.
Isn't it true that the role of life is to gather, decipher/ organize and transmit information so as to improve the quality of survival? This is true in the assembly of organisms, ecosystems, and functioning societies or relationships. Through this process mass can be replicated with appropriate updates to improve function and maintain harmony.
In order for information to be passed on you need a sender and receiver. Where is the original information coming from? Who or what is the original sender?
It seems very plausible to me that all the information was in existence from the start, and its flux has been in its ability to organize itself appropriately.
Operating manuals and assembly instructions are the genetic codes that dictate how the factory organizes and assembles the parts. This leads me to my second point.
In order for information to get passed on you need language. Language infers intelligence.
Syntax, grammar, punctuation, semantics, and agreement. DNA has all these characteristics. DNA is the platform that carries the information. Here's the dilemma with RNA occurring naturally. You need proteins to create RNA, you need RNA to synthesize proteins.
My second point for a belief ( not to be confused with a definition for) God is nucleus. The universe is set up on the principal of nucleus. Galaxies, solar systems, planets, atoms.
Your God is just the primary nucleus that you revolve around. Your Ego might be your God.
A persons worldview seems to improve when you willingly orbit around something a little more cosmic than your tiny situation or quest for self promotion.
This does not mean you have to cater to a belief system that tries to define what God is. There is God made, and then there is man made.
My disclaimer to this point of view and some of my statements: I'm not a scientist, I'm not an expert anything. I do however have a few questions and a handful of observations and interpretations. I try to stay flexible in my conclusions.
