A recent post suggested that God is not an observable Phenomena.
I would submit that the owner and those that buy into this type of theory are must be completely sensory deprived.
At what point does one decide to separate the mechanical (i.e. rule driven)nature of our universe and our physics from it's origin, and it's pre-origin?
I've heard many on this board claim that because time does not exist before the big bang, what actually did exist before time, and before the big bang is of no consequence to science. I.E. it is unobtainable to understand via the study of science.
I therefore submit, that science is a bad path to go down. It is limited, and thus cannot describe phenomena at the highest levels. It does not contain understandings, only descriptions. And since it cannot describe everything, it's just not valid. It simply refuses to understand first cause, let alone describe it.
Sounds pretty boring. And that is why, invariably, most discussions on this board TURN TO THEOLOGY OVER AND OVER AGAIN. This trend proves to me that everyone believes in some theology, no matter how stout an athiest they must play in their daily roles as scientists. And that means, there must be something to it.
Stars evolve, and we can describe that. Why they evolve, now that's really what interests me.
