THEORY: Just what is a theory? We hear the word used frequently—I suspect few have a clear-cut idea of its meaning. I think a ‘theory’ can best be explained this way: A theory is a scientific proposal based on previously observed scientific facts aimed at explaining a scientific principle. In other words, it is an attempt to explain the exact nature and/or cause of a known fact. For instance, everyone with functioning eyes can observe the moon and knows that it seemingly rotates around the earth—that would be a presumed ‘scientific fact’. The question then is, ‘why is that a fact—why does that happen’. I am as certain as I am sitting in this chair, that the ancients had many pseudo-theories, but because they knew little if any scientific astronomical facts, all of their theories would eventually be proven wrong. It was only through progressive scientific investigation prompted by ‘theoretical’ scientific questions that the answers became known.
Please note that the word science comes from the Latin word scientia which means knowledge—and knowledge is ‘truth’. So during this discussion, we are going to be dealing with what are known truths. In like fashion, we will discuss some theory(s), about the nature of our existence—indeed the nature of all existences.
In ancient Egyptian days, it was assumed that there was god(s) which exerted control and influence on their lives. They and the Greeks who followed named a god for essentially every known function from ‘fertility’ to ‘love’ to ‘harvest’. The sun, moon and stars had special influences. Fourteen thousand years ago, the Egyptians, connecting the dots between certain stars created characters with names such as Aquarius. They observed that gradually each character rotated off the horizon. The time from the appearance to disappearance was known as an ‘Age’ and was calculated by them to be 1800-2200 years. Their twelve characters were arranged in circular pattern as observed in the night sky and became known as the Zodiac (from Greek word meaning animal). The time for total rotation of the Zodiac ( twelve Ages) was calculated to be roughly 26,000 years—obviously they were astute mathematicians. Their theories of the meaning of the Zodiac have not been proven to be correct—in spite of that fact, many follow the Zodiac religiously.
As time went on, the Jews came to the realization that there was only one God. Because they made the determination, that God became theirs and theirs alone. Of, course, they ascribed certain characteristics to their God. He was male, old, temperamental—he could love you one minute and hate you to the point of exterminating you the next minute. He was all powerful—in fact, he created the universe and everything in it. They could converse and even bargain with their God.
Now, of course, all of this was no more that their ‘theoretical’ imagination. They theorized every conceivable idea possible about their God. But because they had absolutely no scientific evidence nor backdrop, essentially none of their theories could stand the test of the scientific process. A Religion was developed to appease their vengeful God—that religion was based on their preconceived idea that ‘their God’ was, in fact, vengeful. What next?
Well, when Jesus came along, he claimed to be ‘one with the Father’. He told us that God was ‘all love’. According to Paul, Jesus told us that our salvation was guaranteed, not by anything we do nor had done, but, rather, through the ‘Perfect Love’ of our creator, God. They killed Jesus for his ‘heretical teaching’. They crucified him, an ignominious death reserved for those who committed treason—preaching heresy to the Jewish religion was ultimate treason. It was as unadulterated attempt to destroy the Jewish law and way of life.
However, all of that was done based on an ‘unproven theory’ about an ‘unknown God’—Jesus died. Jesus told us that The Jew’s theory was incorrect. He said ‘yes, there is only one God, but he is in everything and everything is in him’—“split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a rock and you will find me there”.
In spite of Jesus’ ‘new teaching’, so-called Christian church which eventuated in Jesus’s name reverted to the Jewish form of theoretical consideration—they had to have a ‘vengeful’ God who commanded and demanded ‘sacrifice’—heaven was no gift—it must be earned’. Guess what, neither Jesus’ nor Paul’s theories were correct in their minds—so a self-serving religion prevailed.
So what has been the outcome? As is the usual, with selfish human nature always in play, there were/are those who say, ‘more than one can play that game’. The result of all that self-serving ‘theory’ is that, as of 2014, there were 33,000 self-serving so-called Christian theories alone about who God is and how he operates—and every last one of them ultimately based on the Zodiac. I’d like to ask one very simple question—-is any of that rational?—I don’t think so.
That irrationality prompted me to explore those pseudo-theories. After years of intense study, query and learning, but more especially because of my encounter with Quantum Mechanics (Particle Physics), I was able to finally define the essence of our God. I was able to show that God’s basic nature of being was/is ‘Perfect Rationality’. Extrapolating that definition explains all—it dispels all pseudo-theories with which we have been shackled for centuries. Just a cursory examination of Quantum Mechanics will demonstrate God’s only ultimate creation—all of the perfect particles of energy of which everything is made. Furthermore, my definition demonstrates God’s ‘perfect love’—his acceptance of his perfect creation (God’s Will—the Holy Spirit).
