Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XIX (Intelligent Design, IX)

In this blog, I discuss the contributions of Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) to man’s knowledge of God’s Intelligence Design. Because of Galileo’s work on the motion of the pendulum, he became known as the first modern scientist. However, Galileo found something more basic than the different motions of pendulums. He found how God makes things. Let me first connect Galileo to other important personalities.

Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) modeled God with a geometrical circle because God is absolutely maximum and absolutely minimum. Thus, God is the center and circumference of every circle. Based on his model, Nicholas says that the universe has no center because God is the center. We must ask the question, ‘Did Nicholas influence the thoughts of Poland’s Copernicus (1473-1543), Germany’s Kepler (1571-1630), and Italy’s Galileo and did this influence cause these personalities to reject Ptolemy’s heliocentric theory of the universe?’ I believe that the work of Nicholas influenced Galileo because both were associated with the university at Padua. Interestingly, all four of these personalities could have been imprisoned by the Vatican. Yet, only Nicholas and Galileo were imprisoned.

There is more evidence that Galileo was influenced by Nicholas’ book ‘On Learned Ignorance.’ I found this evidence in the closing paragraph and last statement of Chapter 6 of Raymond J. Seeger’s ‘Men of Physics’ book on ‘Galileo Galilei: his life and his works.’ In the last statement, Galileo says, ‘And thus we have a continuous quantity built up of an infinite number of indivisibles.’ Galileo is saying that all quantified things have an infinite number of indivisible parts. To use the concept ‘indivisible’ I argue that Galileo read Chapters 16 and 17 of Book I of Nicholas’ book ‘On Learned Ignorance.’

Galileo contrasted the mathematical continuum with the physical atom. Galileo concluded that it is meaningless to speak of relative magnitudes of infinite classes of objects because the infinite class of objects is different from the finite class of objects. Georg Cantor will search for this infinite class of objects and found the transfinite number system. But this system was not found until the 19th century because Western physicists were lured to Isaac Newton’s godless universe. Today, Cantor’s transfinite numbers sit on the shelves of our schools of physics.

Galileo’s contribution to our understanding of God’s Intelligent Design was twofold, the motion of things and the extension of things with indivisible parts. Today, Western scientists are considering only the motion of things. In my book on ‘The First Scientific Proof of God,’ I agree with Galileo and say that these indivisible parts are spiritual atoms and form all divisible things found in the universe. Thus, contrary to the scientific belief that the universe is equal to the sum of its parts, I say that the universe contains an uncountable number of things and that each thing has an uncountable number of indivisible parts.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XVIII (Intelligent Design, VIII)

In this blog, I discuss the contributions of Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) to man’s knowledge of God’s Intelligence Design. He was a mathematician and astronomer in Germany. His most important work is found in the 1621 book translated as ‘Johannes Kepler: Mysterium Cosmographicum (The Secret of the Universe)’ in the USA by Abaris Books. Kepler's pic is on the left.

Kepler concluded that God did not join the mind to our senses only so we can maintain ourselves. Instead, he thought that a Spirit exists and is distinct from our bodies so that we can be nourished with a diet of knowledge. He thought that this is why God made the universe with a great variety of things. With this belief, he sought knowledge of our solar system.

In the Introduction of Kepler’s book, we learn that Kepler was following Plato’s Timaeus, Nicholas of Cusa’s ‘On Learned Ignorance,’ and the new world theory of Copernicus, which will replace the theory of Ptolemy. With these personalities, Kepler identifies God’s Intelligent Design as a universe of contingent mechanical causes, necessary divine purposes, aesthetics, things that are visible images of God (Rom. 1:20), and a God that distinguishes himself from all creatures.

Kepler nests our first six planets using Plato’s five geometrical solids. These five solids are (1) cube, (2) hexahedron, (3) tetrahedron, (4) dodecahedron, and (5) octahedron. These solids circumscribe and inscribe planets So, Saturn, for instance, moves around the cube whereas the cube moves around Jupiter. The planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn follow this geometry. This non-Euclidian geometry is based on the principle of least action and gives these planets a free force motion. The principle of least action is based on the discovery of Nicholas of Cusa that God is both absolute maximum and absolute minimum. This geometry and motion rejects Newton’s billiard-ball motion of all bodies.

Kepler made an early speculation on gravity in his conclusion that the moon and earth are of the same nature. He speculated the moon either follows earth or are drawn together. His metaphysical study of the geometry above and his studies of contingent causes led Kepler to be known as the founder of astronomy.

In more recent studies of living things, the dodecahedron geometry and its pentagonal faces are being used to distinguish nonliving things from living things. Since planet Earth has life and Mars might have life, Kepler’s discovery that the dodecahedron governs life and the motions of Earth and Mars is thus significant. This more resent work on the life sciences are as follows:
Hambridge, Jay, (1967)"The Elements of Dynamic Symmetry;" Dover Publications ;
Cook, Theodore A., (1979) "The Curves of Life;" Dover Publications;
Ghyka, Matila, (1977) "The Geometry of Art and Life;" Dover Publications;
Murchie, Guy, (1978) "The Seven Mysteries of Life;" Houghton Mifflin;

Stevens, Peter S., (1974) "Patterns in Nature;" Little, Brown & Co.; and
Williams, Robert, (1979) "The Geometrical Foundation of Natural Structure;" Dover Publications.

Unfortunately, Newton’s Universe soon came into existence and was sold to most physical and life scientists of the Western world. With this new theory of the universe, Kepler’s work was put on the shelves or our colleges and universities to collect dust.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XVII (Intelligent Design, VII)

In this blog, I discuss the contributions of Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) to man’s knowledge of God’s Intelligence Design. He was born in Germany and became a bishop in the Roman church after he published his first book, ‘On Learned Ignorance.’ Historians agree that Nicholas’s work ended the Middle Ages. A pic of Nicholas of Cusa is seen on the right.

Nicholas discovered that human languages are primarily symbolic. He made this discovery after he met with Eastern Christians and found Plato’s negative. With Plato’s negative, Nicholas developed a new theology called ‘negative theology.’ In Bk. I, Ch. 26 of his book, Nicholas says that negative theology helps positive theology to prevent the worship of God as a creature. But this saying seems to have caused a short imprisonment for heresy against Jesus Christ.

To teach learned ignorance, Nicholas uses the certainty of mathematics. He also teaches the meanings of symbols. For instance, in Bk. I, Ch. 4, he finds that the symbol ‘maximum’ has two meanings. One meaning is the absolute maximum. An absolute maximum thing cannot become ‘greater or less.’ Thus, this thing does not change. When he found the absolute maximum, Nicholas discovered a new attribute of God. On the other hand, the second meaning of the symbol ‘maximum’ is found in things that can become ‘greater or less.’ Such things are called variables and apply to all sciences. These variables are found only in God’s Intelligent Design of our world.

Nicholas wrote other books, I list some of Nicholas' books and some books of other people below. Many of Nicholas' books and his other sermons and papers can be found and coppied at the website of the American Cusanus Society. (click)

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XVI (Intelligent Design, VIc)

In this blog, I discuss a few of the more important contributions Jesus Christ added to man’s knowledge of the Intelligence Design. To teach complex contributions, Jesus had to simplify his messages, often using metaphors and parables. With these simple messages he hoped that his teachings would be understood and would be carried far into the future. His simplified communications worked because writing of his teachings appeared soon after he was murdered and continued to appear for almost a century after his death.

I conclude that the scientific and moral teachings of Jesus fall into the following subjects: (1) a kingdom of God, (2) mind, and (3) common sense. The kingdom of God is the kingdom that God made for us with his Intelligent Design. Mind is the soul (or spirit) of living things. And common sense deals with our morals.

Jesus says that a kingdom of God is both in us and external to us. So, the kingdom of God is something we must learn with our minds as Paul says at Rom. 1:20. We learn this kingdom when our self-knowledge of God’s Intelligent Design grows and the world in which we live becomes increasingly real. Since life continues eternally, at death we are reborn (reincarnated) but will never know that we had a former life. So we will never know God’s Intelligent design completely; we will never fully know reality; and we will never develop a perfect system of common sense. So the life among humans is a continuous drama as Kenneth Burke says in the book, ‘A Grammar of Motives.'

The big Western religions. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, speak of prophets and saints. Today, we call them big thinkers. So, prophets, saints, and big thinkers are only human beings and they are neither God, a Son of God, nor a Lord. This fact weakens these three religions. These religions are weakened more if one unifies teachings of the ancient scriptures with modern science teachings. Western science and morals are thus only ancient teachings which have been modernized. For instance, at Matt. 10:30 Jesus says ‘But the very hairs on your head are all numbered.’ The modern scientists will agree because he or she knows that the content of each hair is different chemically.

However, many teachings of Jesus have never been applied by modern scientists. For instance, modern scientists do not yet know that the origin of evil in found within the human mind. Jesus did know the origin of evilness as seen in Mark 7:15-23. Jesus also knew that all things in the kingdom of God are related to each other at John 14:20. Neither Christians nor modern scientists have learned this fact.

Unless religions correct their thoughts about modern science and modern science opens their minds to all of the big thinkers, wars will never go away.

The Reason Project

I want to report my comments on a new website named‘’The Reason Project.’ (Click) My comments are found from comment 145 to comment 218.

I became interested in the comment of Allan Greene at 202. This comment includes a paragraph that should be of interest to every human being. This paragraph relates closely to the field of religion and the teaching of Jesus Christ in the New Testament at Matthew, Chapter 24. Greene says,

"How far we get in the making of tools enabling us to transcend limits of time and space is, of course, something I think we ought to keep at. There is going to come a time sometime in the far future when the sun burns out, or even before then when that big megavolcano underneath Yellowstone National Park erupts, and if we humans havent by then found a way off our little planet and a way of getting to some other world, our posterity wont be around. So I think its ultimately going to prove objectively and imperiously necessary for us to eventually get off our planet. But, first of all, were going to at least have to eliminate on our planet those idiotic class and caste sorts of divisions that currently retard by the objective integument and barrier of private profit the further advancement of the productive forces of humankind, or, in other words, the extent to which humankinds tool-making capabilities can make for humankind’s further global social progress."

Essentially, Greene says that we must eventually get off of our planet with tools that produce a level of social progress that will get us onto another planet. I told Greene that he and I at least agree on this human problem.

The Reason Project is based on the assumption that man is just another animal and that man’s tool-making performance depends only on the advancement of genes as a result of a struggle among the fittest humans. I reject this assumption and hope to prove that man is not just another animal in my book ‘The First Scientific proof of God’ and in my teachings on this website.

The revision of this blog today (July 30, 2009) is based on past comments and discussions about my previous posting.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XIV (Intelligent Design, VIb)

In this blog, I expand my discussion of contributions made by Jesus Christ to man’s knowledge of the Intelligence Design reminding you that Jesus Christ was not God in human clothes. Instead, I say that Jesus was a human being who decided to focus his life on the development of self knowledge and teaching it. So before I discuss other contribution of Jesus Christ on the Intelligence Design. I will discuss a major problem associated with self knowledge and its teaching.

When a person makes such a decision like Jesus did and actually develop new knowledge, history tells us that such a person can expect one or more followers (pupils or disciples) who write and record the teachings as best as they can. This occurred with Jesus and was thus able to organize the religion called Christianity.

Since man’s languages are written with symbols, the interpretations of teachings can be highly corrupted because the meanings of symbols are imprecise. In time, Jesus’ teaching did become corrupted because the teaching of Christianity came under the control of the Roman Church and its Popes. This control, or papal supremacy, froze the development of self knowledge during the Middle Ages when the Popes and the Schools misinterpreted Jesus teachings with Aristotle’s impotent logic. (See Blaise Pascal’s book on ‘The Provincial Letters’ about the awful use of Aristotle’ logic.)

In 1427, the Popes had a chance to correct this teaching problem by transferring supremacy to the Bishops. This added task to the Bishops would have widened the search for widely accepted religious syntheses by adding the thoughts of many different fields of thought to each Bishop. Since papal supremacy was never transferred from the Popes to the Bishops, the field of religion became highly isolated because it became separated from all scientific fields of thought.

So, unless a field of thought opens discussions with other fields of thought, cultural conflicts and wars will always begin and will never end. So as a scientist, I am forced to study the teachings of Jesus without help from the field of religion because, in one encounter with a religion (Baptist), I had to conclude that the field of religion does not want to consider the thoughts of scientists.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XIII (Intelligent Design, VIa)

In this blog, I discuss the contribution of Jesus Christ to man’s knowledge of the Intelligence Design. An old art of Jesus is on the right. In this discussion, I will disagree with some teachings of Christianity.

Contrary to Christian teachings, I say that we do know where Jesus was before he began his teachings and was crucified. Before, Jesus began to teach, I say that Jesus lived and studied in Greece and (1) taught at John 14:20 the statement of Anaxagoras (500-429 B.C.) that ‘each thing is in each thing;’ (2) taught at John 10:30 the Parmenides dialogue of Plato (427-347 B.C.): and (3) taught at Mark 7:23 the Greek mind of Plato and Aristotle as a thing ‘within.’ Further, in Matthew, Ch. 24 tells us that our sun will darken and tells us that we must leave this planet or be burned to death inside the sun.

Furthermore, Jesus taught self-knowledge in the Gospel of Thomas, a gospel that was not included in the New Testament. Yet this teaching is clearly delivered to a more intelligent audience because it shows no physical miracles, reveals no fulfilment prophesy, announces no apocalyptic event, dies for no one’s sin, critiques the end of the world, and invites us to join the quest for meaning of life.

Clearly, the teachings of Jesus Christ are far ahead of the practices of life at his time. In my book, The First Scientific Proof of God, I say that his teachings are ‘new and turbulent.’ Thus, through Nicholas of Cusa and Galileo, I say that the teachings of Jesus led to the beginning of modern science and brought an end to the awful life produced by Aristotle during the Middle Ages.

I say that the new and turbulent teachings of Jesus produce new knowledge about God and the universe, only humans can develop this form of knowledge. Thus, all humans have a divine nature. Since I say that mind and body are governed by different laws, Jesus and all other humans have two natures, divine and man. This dualism is the teaching of Nestorian Christianity. Other living things, such as apes, dogs, etc., have similar natures but cannot develop the knowledge that humans can develop. By having two natures, all living things have received souls. A living thing can thus be reincarnated by separating its soul from its body at death and received a new body.

Nestorianism was found by Nestorius (386- 451 AD). (Click) He taught that Jesus had the two natures that I identified above. He was Archbishop of Constantinople from 428 to 431 and was accused of heresy when he objected calling Jesus’ actual mother, ‘the Mother of God.’ I agree with Nestorius.

Interestingly, Islam’s Muhammad was also a follower of Nestorian Christianity. He demanded protection for Assyrian people of Mesopotamia. But the Assyrians eventually lost their autonomy when the region was conquered by the Ottoman Empire. Thirty thousand Assyrians were massacred because the view of Nestorius was widely accepted in the East and caused the separation of the Assyrian Church of the East from the Byzantine Church.

I conclude that all of the teachings of Jesus are consistence the Intelligent Design and the two natures of Jesus and other humans. Thus, saying that Jesus is the Only Son of God is wrong. I will show more evidence of this conclusion when I discuss the contributions of Gottfried Leibniz to the Intelligent Design.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XII (Intelligent Design, V)

In this blog, I discuss the contribution of Plato (427-347 B.C.) to man’s knowledge of the Intelligence Design. Left, an art of Plato with Aristotle is shown. He was a geometer, the founder of the Greek Academy in Athens, and the teacher of Aristotle and Alexander the Great. His major writings are found in a huge 1961 book edited by Edith and Huntington Cairns, ‘Plato -The Collected Dialogues.’

Just about everything in Plato’s huge book deals with knowledge and morals related to the Intelligent Design. Plato’s creation theory is found in his Timaeus dialogue. His discussion of reincarnation is presented in the Phaedo dialogue. His discussion on negative thinking is found in his Sophist dialogue. On God, Plato’s most important dialogue is his Parmenides because he defines the ‘one’ in Abraham’s monotheism. In Parmenides, Plato also shows us how to develop symbols and give them meaning. To me, Plato is the first real scientist.

In Parmenides, Plato begins in 137c saying ‘if there is a one, of course, the one will not be many. Consequently, it cannot have any parts or be a whole.’ With no parts, the one has no beginning or end and is thus unlimited and has no shape. So, he says that the one cannot be anywhere and is neither in itself nor in another. He continues. Then, in 141 Plato ends his thoughts about the one and says ‘Therefore the one in no sense is.’

In 143b, Plato says, ‘If a one is, ....’ Here, Plato has created an ‘if-statement.’ With this kind of statement, Plato shows his scientific abilities because he develops a new hypothesis and accepts its consequence. Alone, symbols can thus be called a simple hypothesis.

With the above if-statement, a new hypothesis is created and Plato starts afresh. At 160b, Plato comes to the consequences of his new hypothesis saying, ‘Thus, if there is a one, the one is both all things and nothing whatsoever, ...’ Then, he makes another hypothesis saying, ‘We have next to consider what follows, if the one is not.’ In 166b, Plato says, ‘If there is no one, there is nothing at all. If one is both all things and nothing, two different ones must exist. The first one is God, who has no parts, is not a whole, and thus cannot be known. The second one is the universe, which has parts and wholes and can be known.
On negative thinking, Plato solves a problem that Socrates developed and caused a trial in Athens. This trial put Socrates to death because he was confusing the students of Athens. Socrates’ famous saying is, ‘I know only that I do not know.’ To solve Socrates’ knowledge problem, Plato focuses his thoughts on the word ‘not.’ He solves the problem in his Sophist dialogue at 257b. There, he says, 'When we speak of ‘that which is not,’ it seems that we do not mean something contrary to what exists but only something that is different.’ This saying is known as ‘Plato’s negative’ and allows us to identify new unknown symbols from known positive symbols

I suggest that all religions and all atheists study this dialogue, Plato’s scientific method, and the philosophies of symbolism. This suggestion is important because religions are teaching many falsities and atheists are trying to eliminate the symbol ‘one’ from all national languages.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + XI (Intelligent Design, IV)

In this blog, I discuss the contribution of Moses to man’s knowledge of the Intelligence Design of the world in which we live. Moses lived in the thirteenth and early part of the twelfth century, B. C. His thoughts are found in the first five books of the Old Testament. General information is found on the Internet. (For instance, click)

At Moses time, the way our mind works was unknown. Thus, man did not know that a person can converse with himself or herself. Knowledge of the human mind was not growing until Greeks, such as Plato and Aristotle, began to investigate the mind in the 4th century B. C. Hundred of years later, Jesus Christ referred to the human mind as something ‘within’ us. (See Mark 7:23) Thus, when Moses began to write, he believed wrongly that God inspires his thoughts because a monotheistic God is infinite and cannot communicate any words to us.

Moses major contributions to the development of the Intelligent Design are as follows: (1) ‘creation’ in the Book called Genesis, (2) ‘freedom’ in the Book called Exodus, (3) ‘organize people’ in the Book called Leviticus, (4) ‘relations of organized people’ in the Book called Numbers, and (5) ‘morality of humans’’ in the Book of Deuteronomy.

In the Genesis, Moses says that the Intelligent Design produces the creation in six phases. In the 7th phase God turned to other godly actions. These actions of God are still unknown. In the 6th phase, he says wrongly that humans are created perfectly. Since humans are free, they decided to develop knowledge in the Garden of Eden. However, in order to explain the origin of evilness, Moses says that the development of knowledge is immoral. This explanation is wrong because man must develop knowledge of transporting life from planet earth to other planets because suns die naturally.

Moses effort to ‘organize people’ under God was noble. And his effort to record ‘relations of organized people’ was also noble because knowledge of families is necessary to develop and improve medical care for humans. Finally, his work on ‘morality’ in Chapter 4 of Deuteronomy led to the famous Ten Commandments. Interestingly, Moses thoughts on freedom and morality are new and still exist today because man’s freedom is not absolute. Instead, man’s freedom exists and grows only if God's moral laws exist and grow.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + X (Intelligent Design, III)

In this blog, I discuss the contribution of Abraham to man’s knowledge of God’s Intelligence Design of the universe in which we live. On the left, an art of Abraham is shown.

Since God could not be sensed, people thought that God is dead and divided himself by appeared as things in the universe. This religious belief became known as idolatry because people idolized and worshiped physical things and persons. Because some U.S. citizens no longer believe in God, the practice of idolatry and human idols are reappearing in the USA. (Click)

However, the ancient pagans maintained God. They equated God to the forces that they found in Nature. Accordingly, different gods were identified with different forces. This belief, which is called pantheism, thus has many gods.

Since Abraham was the Father of the Faithful among the Jews, he defeated idolatry and developed monotheism. Outside of the Bible, nothing is known about him. When Moses identified his version of God’s Intelligent Design by describing his Genesis of the Old Testament, Moses confirmed Abraham’s monotheism at Deut. 6:4. There, Moses said, ‘The Lord of our God is one Lord.’

Since the word ‘one’ is recognized today in the numbers and symbolic language of every nation, the meaning of ‘one’ must be perfected beyond the meanings given to it in the scriptures. Thus, the meaning of ‘one’ will require further development before our knowledge of monotheism and God’s Intelligent Design can grow.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + IX (Intelligent Design, II)

The Intelligence Design of the universe is not nown by our newer generations because they grew up in the age of the Hippies, a Cold War, a drug culture, strange music and hairdos, high inflation, and the near death of JFK’s space program after man landed on the moon. By the 1970s many scientists were also turning away from the false teachings of scriptures, after they could not find the physical matter that underlies all things and after the U.S. Supreme Court in 1967 ruled in favor of Madelyn Murray O’ Hair to remove prayers from public schools.

However, the high energy of some Americans found that the rejection of God was a major error in the late decades of the 20th century because people rediscovered God. I rediscovered God, for instance, without the need of scriptures and without the many outdated sciences of the 20th century that are still promoted in the first decade of the 21st century. My own rediscovery of God was made with scientific proofs, the only method of proof today that can reveal truths.

However, my rediscovery of God required that I use some of the work of man’s biggest thinkers of the past. These thinkers are as follows: Abraham, Moses, Plato, Jesus Christ, Johannes Kepler, Nicholas of Cusa, Johannes Kepler, Galileo, Gottfried Leibniz, Georg Cantor, Suzanne Langer, Ernst Cassirer, Kenneth Burke, and Donald Andrews.

The thoughts of the above personalities produce a complex thread of thought that reaches from them to God because their work sought the truths about the Intelligent Design. Unfortunately, most of these personalities suffered because of their teachings. Fortunately, this suffrage is becoming less and less as man increases his morality.

It took me 25 years to study these personalities in detail. My book on The First Scientific Proof of God and the blogs on this website will shorten the time for others to understand God and his Intelligent Design. Without more knowledge about God and his Intelligent Design of our universe, America cannot be made better.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + VIII (Intelligent Design, I)

Remaking America as a nation under God requires all Americans should accept an Intelligent Design of God if a monotheistic God creates, by necessity, the best world of all possible worlds. A best world was identified by Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) in his New System. His new system challenged Isaac Newton’s mechanical universe and the meaning of space and time. Leibniz debated his difference from Newton in his correspondence with England’s Samuel Clarke. (See Leibniz’s New Science, etc.) Newton’s Universe was also challenged by Albert Einstein’s relative theory of space.

Many physical scientists today are hanging onto the mechanical universe of Newton by trying to unify the concepts, space and time. In his New System, Leibniz defines space as ‘the order of co-existences’ and time as ‘the order of successions.’ The mechanical universe of physical scientists and Leibniz New System are as different as night and day.

My book, The First Scientific Proof of God, and this website follow the system of Leibniz because I conclude that the universe is formed of things. Since only related things exist in the universe, the universe is not a container, as early Greeks and Jesus Christ taught. Thus, I view God’s Intelligent Design as a design of many related finite things, which have been created by an infinite thing we call God.

Since God’s Intelligent Design does not produce the universe as a container, the universe does not have vacuums and identical things. Instead, each thing in the universe is functionally related to all other things. The universe is thus a well-organized thing. I thus do not believe that this planet is warming. If our planet has a growing hole, this growth is functioning, by necessity, for all things that exist on planet earth, that is, until our sun darkens. In instead of guessing, I suggest that our scientists learn more about God’s Intelligent Design, about how planets work, and how we can travel to other planets and study them.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + VII (A Nation Under God, XXXIII)

Remaking America is not a simple job for two reasons: (1) the U.S. founding documents are misinterpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court; (2) the teachings about the universe, life, and God are different between scientists and theologians.

The U.S. Supreme Court says, for instances, that the Declaration of Independence was only an authority of war against England. So, the Declaration has become a dead founding document even though the first two chapters identify John Locke’s concept of Society, which is the first party of Locke’s social contract theory and is identified in the Declaration of Independence. The second part of Locke’s social contract theory is the concept of Government, which is identified by the U.S. Constitution. Although the Declaration establishes the USA as a nation under God, the U.S. Supreme Courts rules that the USA can also become an atheistic nation. Thus, remaking America under God cannot occur unless the Supreme Court recognizes its misinterpretation of the Declaration of Independence.

Scientists and theologians stop all efforts to remake America into a nation under God because scientists disagree among themselves, theologians disagree among themselves, and scientists and theologians disagree with each other. Yet, only one God and only one universe exist.

Scientists disagree with themselves because the majority of scientists reject God and treat life as predictive machines. Theologians disagree with themselves because they limit their theories to the contents of different scriptures. Scientists and theologians disagree with each other because the majority of scientists are atheists.

Unless the U.S. Supreme Court changes its interpretation of the Declaration of Independence, the USA cannot be remade to a nation under God by any political party.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + VI (A Nation Under God, XXXII)

Yesterday, TV stations and newspapers reported that the powerful drug Diprivan was found in the home of Michael Jackson. This drug is used primarily for surgery to make the patient unconsciousness but can cause a heart problem and cardiac arrest. A nurse and nutritionist, Cherilyn Lee, said that Jackson was tired and had recently begged her for Diprivan. But she refused. See pic on the left below. Jackson’s private doctor, Conrad Murray, was with him on the morning of his death. See pic on the right. below.
I assert today that no containers exist in the created things found in the universe. Thus, I conclude that only man makes containers, such as a glass container for drinking water. Since many physical and life scientists are rejecting God and would reject my new assertion, in order to remake America, I conclude that their rejections of God and my assertion must be challenged so that only safe physical material enters the human body.

Project Reason

For a short period, I will be active on the Project Reason of atheism. (click) I will be active on a blog that discusses the relations between 'science' and 'religion.(click) These relations are important to me because I am unifying science and religion on my website. Comments by me on this other blog will apply my teachings found on my website. My comments on the other blog begin with comment 145.
