A General History of Man’s Thoughts on God and the Universe
Once one knows the history of man’s thoughts on the subjects of God and the Universe, one’s belief or disbelief in God becomes clearer. In the Western world, the first belief was polytheism. This is a belief that God created the universe by becoming the things He created. All things thus became idols and were worshiped. Polytheism was replaced by the monotheism of Abraham. Moses describes monotheism in the Genesis of the Old Testament saying that God created the universe in six days after which God rested on the 7th day. Since God is timeless, the six days represent the initial phase of God’s creation of the universe. And, rest represents a new phase of the creation.
A new phase was detected by Christians when Jesus Christ taught them and said, “I and my Father are one.’ This saying allowed man to view a monotheistic God scientifically. This saying became the Christian Trinity in 325 A.D. --- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then, in 1440, Nicholas of Cusa converted the Trinity to science --- one, equality, and union. Then, in 2006, I prove scientifically that God exists and connect God to all things in the universe logically — many, different, and related. Since the universe is constructed out of spiritual atoms, the origin of nonliving and living things are known. Using numbers, we see that God and the universe are unfolded through the Trinity with the triangle numbers 1, 3, 6, 10, ... etc.
In the 17th century, the universe became godless when Isaac Newton created a Euclidean universe. His universe led to many followers and initiated the 18th century Enlightenment. But, in the 19th century, Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) prepared a new paper ‘On the Hypothesis Which Lie at the Foundation of Geometry.’ This paper says that Non-Euclidean geometries exist. Based on Riemann’s paper, Albert Einstein developed his famous relativity theory, which destroyed Newton’s Universe. Today, new godless theories of the universe are sought by astrophysicists. Examples are the Big Bang, string, and order/chaos theories. Further, a godless theory is being sought by biologists to explain all living things. But, the origin of living things cannot be explained, In my book on The First Scientific Proof of God, I say that all things in the universe have their origin in God. Furthermore, all godless theories have something in common --- the universe has an end. But, a universe, which has an active monotheistic God, has no end.
Since there is no fence on which you can stand, what is your choice, a universe with God or a universe without God?
