735. A History of the Two Major Theories of the Universe
In the Western World, two different theories of the universe began to develop after Abraham rejected idolatry. To Abraham, idolatry was the worship of physical objects, which God created from Himself and then no longer existed. So, the concept of 'idolatry' and the concept of the 'beginning and end of the universe' became a natural theory of the early religions and physicists.
To save God, Abraham said that God is One and created things. In the Old Testament, the Jews expanded Abraham thoughts by saying that God created the universe and then God rested. The concept of 'resting' has two different meaning. One meaning says that God retired. And the other meaning says that God went to other work after six days.
These two different meaning led to the two theories of God and the universe that I present on blog 733. Thus, if one says that God retired after creating the universe, the universe had a beginning and has an end. But, if one says that God went to other work, God and the universe is One, which is in agreement with Abraham.
In the Eastern World, especially in China, the theory of God and the universe agrees with the sayings of Abraham, which says that the universe has no beginning and no end. Thus I say that Judaism, Christianity, Islam , physicists, and atheists must reject the theory that the universe comes to an end. Kepler, Leibniz, Galileo, Confucius, Anaxagoras, Plato, and many modern thinkers say that the universe never ends
If today's humans do not reject the thoughts of Judaism, Christianity, Islam , physicists, atheists, free traders, and the U.S. Congress, tomorrows wars, crimes, and terrorists will continue to grow.
