I like to read and find ways of getting my head around things. I have my theistic beliefs, but I look to science to modify my beliefs. Creation has always presented a conundrum and this highly speculative theory has come out of all that.
A literal reading of Genesis makes no sense. We didnâ€™t actually even need science to see that. Science itself provides no real explanation except that it all started with the big bang and somehow evolved from there. Iâ€™d like to suggest another model of creation that is strictly speculative but seems to me to make sense.
Iâ€™d like to start with this article. What's 96 Percent of the Universe Made Of? The universe as we perceive it is apparently only 4% of what actually exists. Science has shown us that there is a whole lot more out there.
The 4% of all that is then, is the 4% that we are able to perceive with our 5 senses. Our theories on the 96% are based not of our perception of the 96%, but of its affect on the 4% we can perceive. Largely we are photon detectors. It seems to me reasonable to speculate that with different senses we would likely perceive a very different universe. For example if we didnâ€™t have the sense of vision our perceived universe would be a lot less than the 4% that we actually can perceive. Also, if we didnâ€™t have vision we would have no frame of reference to even consider the possibility of vision.
Are there other senses possible that would give us a very different perception of the universe, or an expanded perception of universe?
I read somewhere that our universe is an â€œemergent property of a greater realityâ€. If that is the case then it is reasonable to assume that our perception of creation is actually not of a creation of something from nothing. Creation of our perceived universe would actually be creation through evolutionary processes of creatures that were able to perceive a particular aspect of that creation, without directly perceiving the remaining 96%.
If anyone is actually interested in my musings this could go in all sorts of directions, and I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts. I have my fingers in a lot of pies so I donâ€™t always have time for EvC but Iâ€™ll do my best to keep up.
I donâ€™t really see a great fit for where this should go, but I suppose â€œBig Bang and Cosmologyâ€ might be the best fit. Whatever one of you moderators decide is fine by me.
He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.
