This is my concept of the nature of God
, which I call Material Theism. It is merely a metaphysical
doctrine which I've developed, a way I've discovered of interpreting science to philosophy
. It rests on the basic premise that there is a God
, and that this God
is the matter that is all around us. Use at your own risk, void where prohibited
, &c. &c.
had its origin in an explosion from an infinitely dense
form of matter: the Big Bang
. The nature of this matter beyond the fact that it was an infinitely dense singularity is mostly unknown. Its origins are arcane
and incomprehensible; unknowable. Indeed, the universe was either created by some intelligent being
who supersedes space and time, or it must be sui generis
. Material theism assumes the latter, that this singularity
was somehow self-generating, and attempts to explain the nature of God
in this universe thusly.
Since this matter, this singularity
, was sui generis
, it is therefore God
. Look at definitions of God -- God is all around us
, God is everything
, God has always existed and God always will exist
. These are all attributes of the first singularity. Let's examine why:
1. God is all around us, God is everything
: This singularity became all the matter in the whole universe. It is therefore all around us.
2. God has always existed and always will exist
: Time is a measurement based solely on the movement of matter
. Since this singularity became all matter, the precise moment that it started expanding is when time started. And when, if, it contracts in a "Big Crunch
", that is when time will end. So we can say that this matter always has and always will exist, as far as the word "exist
" applies temporally.
Anyway, I'm not attempting to flesh out all or any of the implications of this theory; I will leave that to anyone who reads this. But I found it a convincing argument against the hard-line atheist
creed I used to hold to.
