Deepak Chopra: Scientific Proof of God?

If you’re a regular Deepak Chopra reader and listener, you have probably come across the term “space time.” It may sound nonsensical – it’s either space or time, right? But in physics, “space time” is a real measure used to describe the four-dimensionality of the Universe. In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak Chopra sits down with Menas Kafatos, a physicist and professor at Chapman University, to discuss space time, matter, and the generative nature of the Universe.

As Deepak and Menas discuss, all matter in the physical universe springs from the curvature of space time, bending outward from a vast dark field where things like space and time have no relevance. This isn’t a field of nothingness, though, because it contains the potential for everything in our observable reality. In this way, as Deepak points out and Menas confirms, the Universe is more mind-like than machine-like. It doesn’t have a real “substance,” Menas says, yet creates everything that does.

What it comes down to, then, and what science helps us consider, is that there is an omnipotent, omnipresent force in the Universe that creates everything we see, touch, taste and experience. It is nonlocal and non-physical, yet everywhere present and infinitely powerful. Ladies and gentlemen, it sounds like we have ourselves a “God.”

God cannot be tested.
Faith is not a mathematical problem.
How we treat others during our lifetime is the 'matter' of enlightenment.

Many fail the test.

Test your faith. Read entire link. You may never believe in God again.

I like Darren's post! [ couldn't send another Green Star :( ]Whatever intellect humanity has thus far evolved to entertain, cannot entertain the "awe" of this creation.

The universe is rather like an organic mechanism, way beyond the realm of science and scientists who try and reduce it to their understanding of mathematics or physics...

Eternity is a certainty. God IS eternal.Without such a Being.a Force.a Power.it is IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYTHING TO EXIST! All that is in existence is for a purpose,a reason including mankind.To understand that,it is essential to understand and know GOD for without Him,there is no purpose or reason.Atheism is based on that religion and gives absolutely no hope.And yes,atheism IS a religion of a belief of man being responsible ONLY TO HIMSELF.thereby making himself as God.
True Biblical knowledge comes from discernment...the understanding of what, when why and Who .. As such,the connection of the origins of science,physics,morals and the neccessary invisable laws to the God of creation, is recognised. Even one of our greatest mediums...music ...is completely dependent on that.
When we can read comments which are completely untrue of what the Bible is actually teaching because of lack of understanding and no discernment,,then we can see why the prophetic " last days" signs are evident.Man is destroying himself thanks to atheism.In fact.that is also prophecied ...except that God steps in.

" What history and experience teaches is this...that nations ( individuals) and governments have never learned anything from history or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.
The state of man's mind or the elementary phase of mind which he so far possesses,conforms precisely to the state of the world as he so far views it.
America is therefore the land of the future,where.,in the ages that lie before us,the burden of the worlds history shall reveal itself ." Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
" You will hear of wars and rumours of wars,nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.There will be famines and earthquakes in various places" Jesus Christ
" There will be terrible times in the last days.People will be lovers of themselves,lovers of money,boastful,proud,abusive,disobedient to their parents,ungrateful,unholy,without love,unforgiving,slanderous,without self control,brutal,not lover of good,treacherous,rash conceited,lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,having a form of godliness but denying it's power " 2Timothy 3:1-5
These signs are all evident right now.In future times,they will become part of history and yet people will still not learn.It's amazing how the words of people are quoted simply because they comply with self choice.And the Bible denied for same reason ! How many people really understand God.the bible and ourselves originates from the selfwill to learn.If not,then the understanding is the same as learning nothing

The god of the bible is supposed to be omnipotent, yet can't defeat those with iron chariots (Judges 1:19), god is supposed to be omnipresent, yet has to travel to certain places (Genesis 11:7), god is supposed to be omniscient, yet doesn't know where Adam is (Genesis 3:9), that Adam and Eve ate the fruit (Genesis 3:11), that Cain killed Able or was going to kill him (Genesis 4:9). Matter of fact, you will notice this pattern throughout the bible (Genesis 6:6; Job 1:7, satan even uses a mind trick on god in Job 1:7-12). The bible also teaches that god created the grass and trees on day three then creates the sun and moon on day four, this is not science (Genesis 1:11-19). The bible teaches that it took god four days to create the earth and its contents but he creates the entire, complete, complex universe in a moment of time, this is not science. The whole atmosphere of the bible is ludicrous, in the majority of the scenes god is absent then emerges only to discipline man, usually in some unjust incompetent way. God appears to be limited, impotent, murderous, petty, confused, unknowing, a drama queen, and at times stupid. Jesus believed the Old Testament, what does that say about him?

Another example is an infinite, perfect, loving god who has no need of anything and therefore could not experience loneliness or lack creating a people knowing that ninety percent will suffer an excruciating torture for an eternity. If you were all-knowing and knew you were going to have ten children but eight or nine of those children would suffer not only in this world but for an ETERNITY in a hell, I doubt you would ever have children. I wouldn't do it if only one of my ten children were to suffer. To experience loneliness and satisfy it knowing that it would cause unimaginable suffering would be the ultimate in selfishness, to be all-loving and do it would be the ultimate in cruelty.

"People gave ear to an upstart astrologer [Copernicus] who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon. Whoever wishes to appear clever must devise some new system, which of all systems is of course the very best. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred scripture tells us [Joshua 10:13] that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth." - Martin Luther, "Works," Volume 22, c. 1543

"Reason must be deluded, blinded, and destroyed. Faith must trample underfoot all reason, sense, and understanding, and whatever it sees must be put out of sight and ... know nothing but the word of God." - Martin Luther

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD" - Isaiah 1:18

An omniscient god cannot have emotions. For example, if you came home to find that your spouse has been having an affair. You would become angry or sad because it is new information, something you've now learned. If you had all knowledge there would be nothing for you to learn, you would have known everything for as long as you existed. An emotional omniscient god nullifies itself. So an omniscient god repentant of previous actions that eventually destroys everything in a flood because of anger is ridiculous (Genesis 6:6). This would be like feigning surprise at your surprise birthday party that you already knew about.
