In the USA, the beliefs of atheism, materialism, evolution, and deism have not lured a convincing number of U.S. citizens to their ‘belief in a physical world’ because they haven’t proved it. So, these fields of thought are changing the lure to save their beliefs, save their college and university courses, and save their yearly research funds from the federal government.
One of these new lures is ‘The Reason Project.’ (Click
) Its major focus is to define human morals and their relations to the physical sciences and scientific laws. If this project is successful, human beings will be viewed as machines and the spirit of humans will become enslaved to the ‘belief in a physical world.’ However, if this project becomes a winner, its practice of a physical world
would violate the founding document of the USA because the Declaration of Independence entitles the ‘Laws of Nature and Nature’s God
’ to all U.S. citizens. The Declarations says that the USA is a nation under God. Below, I show that the founders were correct. I also show that The Reason Project is developing arbitrary thoughts.
With increased research on the subject of ‘things’ a new view of God has appeared. This new theology, which is known as panentheism
, predicts that end of atheism, materialism
, evolution, and deism. But evidence of this theology appeared in 500 B.C. when the Old Testament was being finalized and Greece’s Anaxagoras said that ‘each thing is in each thing.” His statement amplified the Greek philosophy, which said that ‘One is All
’ and ‘All is One
.’ The pic on the right indicates that God is in all finite things and that all finite things are in God.
Five hundred years later Jesus Christ would roam through Greece, learn Greek thoughts, and return home to teach these thoughts to his Jewish audience. One of these teaching of Jesus is found in the New Testament at St. John, Ch. 14. At John 14:20, Jesus teaches the five hundred year old statement of Anaxagoras.
Unfortunately, the statements of Anaxagoras and Jesus Christ were not understood by their leaders. Thus. instead of developing knowledge, Western man fell backward and into the Middle Ages where logical thinking would hide important truths. Unfortunately, fifteen centuries must pass before Aristotle’s logic and the Middle Ages would come to an end. The savior was Nicholas of Cusa
, who found the hidden truths about God and God’s creation. Cusa
provides these truths in his book, ‘On Learned Ignorance.’ (Click
) Let me discuss these hidden truths in more detail.Cusa
first research seeks the maximum of man’s ignorance. He defines the word ‘maximum’ as ‘that which there cannot be anything greater
.’ Obviously a greatest maximum cannot be less than this maximum. So the greatest thing must be maximum and minimum. Since the maximum is also minimum, the greatest maximum is ‘one.’ As one, the greatest thing is thus ‘one and maximum’ and is free from all relations and contractions. The freedom of a greatest thing means that other things are not related or can be compared with the greatest thing. Thus we must accept the statement ‘that the greatest thing is incomprehensible and unknown. It is thus clear that man must learn his ignorance. To learn this ignorance Cusa
sees that it is necessary to use guiding illustrations in a transcendent way and to leave behind perceptible things.
With these simple truths about a greatest thing, we learn why monotheism destroyed pantheism and why all believers worship a one and maximum thing.
If you look upward and into the evening sky, you will see many dark and bright things. These different things are images of the one and maximum greatest thing because the have been contracted by plurality and finitude
. With these images, a universe is formed. Contractions, such as plurality and finite, thus reveal the contracted maximum, which is the universe. Contractions distinguish the things in the universe from the absolute maximum of God.
After Nicholas of Cusa
died in 1464, his thoughts were not propagated. Instead, Galileo was imprisoned and Cusa
’s thoughts stayed alive only in Germany where Kepler and Leibniz promoted panentheism
. Today, almost six centuries have passed. Is a new form of ignorance, a new Middle Age, and a new religion emerging? With the rise of atheism, materialism, evolution, deism, and religious fundamentalism, this newness might be just around the corner.
For this reason, I studied the work of Nicholas of Cusa
and found it to be correct science. So, I identified attributes of God that ‘contract and connect’ God’s higher world to our lower world. First, I conclude that all things in the universe are ‘finite’ things that have been originated by an ‘Infinite’ thing. This proof is found on page 6 of ‘The First Scientific Proof of God
.” In the same book, I present four other attributes of God that ‘contract and connect’ God’s higher world to our lower world logically. All five opposing concepts are as follows:
(Note. I capitalize the concept that is an attribute of God but do not capitalize the concepts that are attributes of things that exist in the universe.)
After I began to teach these proofs on the Internet, I found a sixth attribute that ‘contracts and connects’ God’s higher world to our lower world. These attributes are ‘Independence
’ and ‘dependence
.’ The Independence shows that God is free from the things in the universe. And the dependence shows how all things in the universe depend on each other. Dependence was also recognized by Kant and Hegel. I conclude that this dependence is a reality because ‘world noise’ exists. World noise, for instance, is well known by every electrical engineer, every telephone repair man, every surgeon, every politician, every Mother, every lower animal, etc.
As Anaxagoras said, ‘Each thing is in each thing.’ So, every thing has a functional purpose for the sake of all other things. Each thing in the universe is thus a whole that has an infinite number of different indivisible parts as Galileo said long ago These different indivisible parts are immortal and cannot be destroyed. So, among a diversity of indivisible parts, a thing can be found if time exists for man. And in a specific thing, a diversity of indivisible parts can be found in man’s time. Time is thus on our side.
