Okay, I’m going to rebuild your brain now.Are you ready for a perspective on the subject you don’t know yet? Are you ready for the sight of an insane mathematician who has been rolling this question back and forth in his head for ages like a moon addict in bed at full moon?
In the 1920s, the German mathematician David Hilbert, one of the greatest of his time, proposed the so-called Hilbert program – Wikipedia.
The aim was to prove the freedom of contradiction of mathematics.
In 1930 Kurt Gödel, from whom an ontological proof of God also comes from, then showed the impossibility of this undertaking.In short, in sufficiently complex belief systems, there are always things that you simply have to believe, because with assumptions within a system you can never determine your freedom of contradiction.
This is a problem, because it makes physics and every form of religion equivalent in the sense that you simply have to believe some things that you can never be sure of as to whether they are true.
A physicist, I mean it was Paul Dirac, once said: “The difference between religion and physics is that physicists put God at the end of their deliberations and religious people at the beginning”.
This means that:
If someone claims
“Does it matter if two plus two is three.It’s not three, off, basta.’
then, whether he knows it or not, he is as much a believer in something as any Christian, and he is no less dogmatic.
Mathematicians know how careful one has to deal with such claims and how much more there is in implicit assumptions than the eye sees.
Now an atheist can claim that God is not there.
But just likewise, a Christian can claim that weight is not there.
None of this can be touched or seen, because they are both concepts, more so later.
Now someone will say: HA!Weight can be measured, but God cannot!
I will now refute you.
Measuring weight is very easy, because gravity behaves very predictably.
But to measure God?
Think about the following:
Someone who believes in God will behave differently from someone who does not.Because many people believe in God, the overall effect on the behavior of humanity is relatively large. That is, faith in God causes a physical change in the world.
These could actually be measured.In a thought experiment, by observing two earths from the outside in the long term, one full of Christians, the other full of atheists.
So, let us now put God at the end of my deliberations.
So what is a God?
A god is an archetype and a religion is a psychologicalframework.
Let us first take the Christian God.
Behaving as if God exists ensures that you do not have sex before marriage, do not lie and steal, do not murder, have lifelong partners, are in a strong church, have solace, etc.Pp.
Imagine if 200 years ago you had been incredulous, you would have put illegitimate children into the world, stolen them, and lied and murdered.Apart from being quite an asshole, all of this would have somehow come back to you and made your own life hell on earth.
One can all understand heaven, hell, paradise and the serpent as psychological concepts without exception.
God forgives you becomes Don’t be so you in mindfulness practice.
“Paradise” can be seen, for example, as the early care of childhood in baby age and then the “snake” as the point at which the child becomes aware and is able to self-reflection.With the awareness, the expulsion from paradise takes place, because then one begins to assume first responsibility. This is a pattern that is repeated again and again in life.
“Heaven” is then perhaps the same concept that is taken up in Buddhist doctrine as “enlightenment”.
If you pray to your God, what happens psychologically?
Whether you pray to an actual God or to yourself does not matter.If there is a God, he answers your prayers by giving you the strength you need.If there is no God, you have tapped your psychological reserves from the unconscious.
The result is the same.
Is it any wonder that meditation is so trendy now that so many people have stopped praying?
When Nietzsche said, “God is dead,” he did not mean the actual God.But the underlying psychological framework for a happy life that was lost with it.
The reason is simple: some of the values no longer make Christians strong.No sex before marriage is simply a piece of advice that no longer makes sense in the age of contraceptives. The Christian family image is not good advice when a man can no longer feed a family and feminism demands equality for women.
So which God is the strongest?
The Christian God gives his believers a relatively beautiful life, but unfortunately he also turns them into sheep.
The flying spaghetti monster is marked by cynicism and nihilism, and its followers feel as if their lives are meaningless.
Every God and every religion has its own advantages and disadvantages for your life.
I would only recommend you not to be nihilistic.Some atheists confuse these things.
And if there is no God you can believe in, just think of yourself!
