Do We Need Proof?
Posted by Andrea Elliott
I believe that faith is something very personal. Our beliefs make us who we are and if it allows us to be better human beings, on a non-religious spiritual level, then it can only be a good thing.
What I am happy to share is my intrigue of religious philosophers, teachers, scientists and thinkers, from the dawn of time, dark ages right through to present day, all eager to prove the existence of a higher power, divine source, or God. And there has, to date, never been any complete, concrete evidence that a higher power, or God actually exists.
It is a quandary that may never be solved. Yet, research continues and theories are presented; either on an abstract, intuitive level or lateral rationale. Either way I find it fascinating that religion embraces, and even welcomes science – in particular physics – into the fold.
A news piece caught my eye today, whilst searching new articles on physics. It was released by the Catholic News Agency, entitled “Priest’s new film says physics help prove existence of God”. The priest, Father Robert Spitzer, who is also a philosopher and film producer, created a documentary featuring only “world-class” physicists, from institutions such as NASA, Harvard and Cambridge. The objective of the film was to combine intellectual reason, science and religion in order to provide evidence that a creator – God – exists, to provide sceptics and non-believers with unquestionable proof.
The documentary discusses the big bang theory, modern physics, and turns to the topic of a single creator of the universe. The scientists concluded that it is nigh on impossible for the universe to simply pop up out of nowhere and therefore, it must have been created by a “something”.
There has to be a beginning; as nothing can existence without existence (or life). So where and how did it all start?
Now that is a question that conjures hours of puzzling, mind-boggling debate and according to the priest, “When”, which I would see more as “If”, the universe was nothing it could not have changed from nothing into something, as the “something” had to have been a founding creator. He also states a creator would need to exist outside space and time as, if the Big Bang theory is correct if nothing existed -not even space or time – then the evidence from physics indicates (or rather cannot disprove) the existence of God.
So, I visited his documentary site.
What I found was the film on sale at a minimum spend of $200! This could lend sceptics more ammunition, conspiracy theories and discredits all credibility for the film. I would have to say I was disappointed. I expected a film of this genre to be squeaky clean and brought to the respected, relevant, mainstream networks, to showcase the scientific opinion.
I have decided not to publicise his site and thus leave it up to you to decide whether you want to look into it further. But I hope it does not detract from the key subject that science is now playing a greater part in our physical and spiritual world. The need to question what we believe helps us to evolve on a holistic level – in every sense of the word.
The world is certainly a puzzling place and, luckily, the scientific department of physics is here to help us unravel the mysteries of the universe, from its beginning and beyond.
