Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXII (The science of Gottfried Leibniz, Part XI)
But in Leibniz’s 17th century writing, the ancient symbol ‘being’ is changed permanently to the symbol ‘thing.’ This new symbol became permanent in the writings of the 18th and 19th centuries of Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Hegel, and Karl Marx. But in Kant, Hegel, and Marx, the symbol ‘thing’ changes to a ‘thing-in-itself.’ It is with Marx that thoughts about God are eliminated. With Marx thoughts about a changing universe are maintained.
Since Marx was a dialectician, he gave his ‘changing’ universe something ‘permanent.’ He concluded that ‘revolution’ is the permanent thing of the changing universe.
In the 1970s, American scientists followed Marx by rejecting God. But they also dropped the idea of a ‘thing-in-itself.’ By dropping ‘things-in-themselves, they can y develop knowledge only of the universe’s changes. With a one-sided universe, how do these scientists predict anything about the universe? The answer is to build a thing that becomes permanent and then explodes. This is the Big Bang theory.
But, this exploded thing cannot be proven. Yet, the thoughts of Abraham, Moses, Plato, Jesus Christ, Nicholas of Cusa, Leibniz, my theological science, and many other thinkers say that God does exist and is a thing-in-itself. Who is right, today's scientists or the string of great thinkersr I list above?
Since many of today’s U.S. scientists are obviously wasting lots of U.S. government funds, isn’t it time to change government policies on God and science?
