    i am a deeply religious nonbeliever






    I am a deeply religious nonbeliever.

    This is somewhat new kind of religion. I have never imputed to Nature a purpose or a goal, or anything that could be understood as anthropomorphic.What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility.

    My position concerning God is that of an agnostic. I am convinced that a vivid consciousness of the primary importance of moral principles for the betterment and ennoblement of life does not need the idea of a law-giver. Especially a law-giver who works on the basis of reward and punishment.

    To assume the existence of an unperceivable being… does not facilitate understanding the orderliness we find in the perceivable world. I don`t try to imagine a personal God; it suffices to stand in awe at the structure of the world, insofar as it allows our inadequate senses to appreciate it.

    For some reason or another a few days ago a notion came to my mind about the non-importance of Albert Einstein. Now I see why!

    I predict that his research and findings will be soon overshadowed by much more concise and coherent practical applications. Sure they will lend to his thinking Yet all will see it was just a step to something much bigger.

    Thats just my opinion and notion. And in no way does one not having God consciousness lend to or diminish there aptitude for scientific knowledge. Its science not life or death itself.

    Just my opinion again. But God Consciousness enhances ones experiences in the science and arts. Its like watching a movie in hD+3d verses black and white 2d.

    You have provided a delectable combination of words and images. Profound excitement need not always be linked to a new discovery.

    A higher discovery must be linked to a high notion

    Yet it does aid ones being to connect to a higher source. To be quite exact and clear ! Another inclination not accusation was that Mr. Einstein was a seeker of fame and fortune. If that is the case, the matter is really within the being and his or her intention.

    I can only imagine what high forms of conciousness could have leaked out of his mind. Now the atom bomb starts to make a little sence... OUCH!

    You seem to have an open system of thought, how does this effect your impression of the human entity en masse?

    Einstein was a genius in his time - today he wouldn't be regarded as a genius - but this is normal and by definition of a genius - he was ahead of his time - and his performance was a result also and primarily of his unique ability to concentrate his thoughts. But it is true: nature is without goal or ethics or religion or anything else - it is working or not and thats it for the participants - but the structures evolved have a complexity and mechanisms far beyond our knowledge - so there seems to be something like god in it - even if you don't believe in god.
