Science Finds God

A legitimate conflict between science and religion cannot exist. Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” ~Albert Einstein

You believe in God. You didn't determine that because of something you read in a scientific journal. Your faith is stronger than any scientific assertions made by man. You don't need to defend your beliefs because an energy resonates with you—a feeling—that allows you to know that God is real.

Nonbelievers scoff at you, thinking you are weak for leaning on an imaginary deity for comfort and guidance. They believe you are simpleminded and your prayers are just your own thoughts bouncing around inside your skull.

They've eliminated God from the equation. They believe that there was nothing before the big bang and no force was present to set creation in motion, and then nothing caused it to explode. And they came to this conclusion with a brain that they believe was created by a random accident. In the absence of scientific proof, God must not be real, and to them that's logical and not simpleminded.

The book Quantum Orchestra: distorting the notes of reality, written by Craig Smedley, discusses how illogical it is to dismiss God based on current theories of creation:

I believe in what's logical and do you think it is logical that all of this was a random accident, where the perfect amount of matter was randomly spewed into the cosmos—out of nothing—with randomly perfect amounts of helium and hydrogen, randomly perfect gravity [a dying concept], randomly perfect electromagnetic forces, randomly perfect acceleration, subsequently creating randomly perfect amounts of carbon and oxygen, all of which randomly come together to build the cosmos and accidentally create life, where being off by a single decimal point unravels it all?”

The problem for nonbelievers is they want science to disprove God but science can't. That is why most scientists are agnostics (they don't believe nor disbelieve in God). Many believe that science is the only way to find truth. But science is unable to prove even that. There is no scientific test to validate that only science can find truth.

The case is the same with finding God through science. First you must be able to define God in order to test the hypothesis that he does or does not exist. It is therefore impossible to design a test to find something that you can't define. Science can therefore never find God.

Or can it? It might be time to toss that old belief and start anew.

We'd need to have a definition for God. The definition would likely have the prefix omni. I've heard that God is love, God is light, God is energy, God is everything, God is the all-powerful creator and the list goes on. We could lump together all of these descriptions and God could be a source of eternal energy that flows through all things, connects all things, keeps nature in balance and sustains life on a cosmic level, able to transmit and receive information, exist in all dimensions, able to manipulate the physical world and has mystical qualities? 

Well if that is God, then our science already found him.

Quantum theory postulates that there is an underlying resonating energy running through everything. It has been theorized that it is responsible for sustaining and forming everything. It is an energy that traverses multiple dimensions—even non-physical [spiritual] dimensions—and has miraculous properties as observed in quantum entanglement. It may exist beyond the rules of space and time and operate at, or faster than the speed of light, giving it eternal qualities as time stops at the speed of light. Our brains may even connect and share information with this energy—that would legitimize prayer. When we observe it, it becomes the thing that we are looking for.

Could this quantum energy be a divine intelligent energy connected to the arm of God? It's certainly an explanation that hasn't been ruled out. There may now be more scientific proof for the existence of God than against. So to use science as an argument to deny the existence of God is really just an argument based on ignorance.
