EINSTEIN: GOD, RELIGION & SCIENCE
PART 17: EINSTEIN: GROWTH IN INTELLECT & IN THE SPIRIT (POSITIVISM)
Editors Note: Beloved the intellect of those in the human context only seeks sustained accretion in the hearts and minds of the Spiritual Scientist. A will and desire not to just follow the custom and tradition of the world sponsors creativity. Thus there is a will, a must to engender new ways that are old and new to see, hear, feel and touch Truth.
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
Niels Bohr and his adherents scoffed at the idea that it made sense to talk about what might be beneath the veil of what we can observe. All we can know are the results of our experiments and observations, not some ultimate reality that lies beyond our perceptions. Einstein had displayed some elements of this attitude in 1905, back when he was reading Hume and Mach while rejecting such unobservable concepts as absolute space and time. “At that time my mode of thinking was much nearer positivism than it was later on,” he recalled.
“My departure from positivism came only when I worked out the general theory of relativity.”
From then on, Einstein increasingly adhered to the belief that there is an objective classical reality. And though there are some consistencies between his early and late thinking, he admitted freely that, at least in his own mind, his realism represented a move away from his earlier Machian empiricism. “This credo,” he said, “does not correspond with the point of view I held in younger years.” As the historian Gerald Holton notes, “For a scientist to change his philosophical beliefs so fundamentally is rare.” (“Einstein: His Life and Universe,” Walter Isaacson, p. 460).
Brethren it is written that those that seek the essence of God grow in the Spirit. Is it logical then to assume that philosophers, sociologists also grow? Is there something that can be found in the positive nature of things? What of T=ss² the theory of nonconformity and Truth?
Absolutes Seen, Heard, Dreamed, Realized
The Frenchmen Auguste Comte the great
philosopher and sociologist believed that
the philosophers look at nature and all things
bound by positive facts and phenomena rejecting
and casting out as unnecessary abstract speculation.
This positivism was then definite, assured and dogmatic.
We pray that all of humankind will trust in God. Many people trust and have Faith in many things. Thus by most accounts it is not difficult to trust in your car, stove etc. Is it difficult to trust in God? You can see and feel a car. Can you see and feel God? Yes the presence of God is more vivid than any THING. Can someone be taught to see God? Can someone be taught or learn how to feel God? We see and feel Truth. We don't know (in the way of the flesh) God however we strive to be with God and the relationship or acquaintance is ongoing and will endure until the End Times. (Excerpts from “The Methodology For Obtaining Truth: Part 3: The Spiritual Scientist: Who Is He?” Carl A. Patton, FreedomJournal Press).
It is surely not a positive notion that there is much
indecision among the scientists on how to arrive at
knowledge and information. Because someone
always comes up with an idea that they cannot see.
Thus the Spiritual Scientist takes all into account
as he makes his analysis.
But who is this Spiritual Scientist? He is best described as a person who believes in God. This belief is also noted in obedience and repentance. Love for this person extends to the Creator and equals love for self and all of humankind. As the Spiritual Scientist develops and grows in Truth he realizes his distinct role. The Word of God reveals to him the essence of Truth regarding all matters of life. Thus, theology becomes not just a mere academic discipline but the center-piece of all knowledge, wisdom and Truth. But, to achieve this avenue to Big Truth the Spiritual Scientist must embrace other disciplines of knowledge. Thus, Social Science exists as a virgin collage of facts and data. Here he can hone his skills toward exacting the High-Road of Truth.
Did Einstein clearly establish absolutes in space and
time? Just how can you measure the Spirit that is Holy?
Can some things be measured and some things are lost
to the measuring stick or slide rule? What is the greatest
obstruction to not measure or know that some things can
be counted and some things cannot?
"How does the belief in God render a higher level of Truth?" We bear witness that there are believers and non-believers. We also declare that many believers do not understand their role and responsibilities. The realization that God is the Creator and source of Truth is not for out-wards show and elitist behavior. As we humble ourselves before God we also exert a humble posture toward revealing Truth to humankind. The diligent and sincere study of the Word of God will reveal to the wise that the Truth of God is Supreme. The Truth of God will also answer fleeting questions regarding culture and the social, political, historical and economic situations of humankind.
Meanwhile as Einstein determined his absolutes
in space and time he grew in the knowledge of
objective classical reality leaving behind positivism
as he must have thought that there was some “Spooky
Action,” somewhere. Thus realism in all things promotes
growth. This means the ability to see, hear and realize
things in the Spirit world.
To further explore the question how the belief in God renders a higher level of Truth we see a distinct methodology for Truth. The Social Sciences although as a means to understand all other disciplines are still secondary to Theology and the belief in God. Believers realize their role and the purpose of God and the Word. We thank Jehovah God for His revelations of Truth. Thus, we have become witnesses of Truth. Thus as we grow in Truth, we see a confirmation of facts not seen before in the Social Sciences.
I can hear, see, I dream and one day I realized that
the great Prophets looked down and said who is in the
vanguard of knowledge as science is only secondary.
Just how can we arrive at the greatest Truth? Has it already
been written? Help us find this way we pray? And all the
greatest thinkers conferred that there was indeed “Spooky
Action” but it was surely near and far.
For example the Word of God best explains the struggle of the masses on earth with those who lust for power and domination. Although economic analyses of many of these questions were first vividly seen in the realm of Marxism, they become established as fact in the Spiritual Scientist's mind. Thus Marx leaves you with little truth but God reveals Big Truth. As we pose the methodology for arriving at Truth and exactness in the Social Science arena, we also, ponder. Will humankind ever accept the reality that more can be explained than man admits? How can Social Science be established as an exact Science without the baggage of elitism and the label of, why do they think they (FreedomJournal) have an exclusive hold on Truth?
There are no one-way streets in life unless you venture
upon one and refuse to come back to life and God.
Thus brethren are you saying that all have been with
God? God is the Creator and He made all things including
things human. Thus those that deny reality which is very
positive claim they don’t know, but they left God.
Truth is not always what you expect nor is Truth often what you already know. If Truth is always known, it will no longer be Truth. Truth also causes a re-ordering of thought patterns and ways of doing things that have been traditionally accepted. Truth is also a new way of thinking. Sadly most people feel that thinking is a great exertion of energy that they could use not thinking. A mind that is constantly placed on hold will resist Truth and reject the physical processes associated with thinking.
As we place our faith in the Spirit to lead us, we trust that we have not confused anyone thus far. We remind you that one must digest all that we have written and think on the things to come, too gain some understanding about God as the Center of Truth.
