EINSTEIN: GOD, RELIGION & SCIENCE
PART 21: EINSTEIN: CLOSET SPIRITUAL SCIENTIST?
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: Peace will never be still nor will those that loathe the Messengers of Truth silently move in a state of rational behavior. Thus many come denying reality and trying to fix things that need no one in the flesh to repair. Meanwhile the creative artist called upon to look from the Watch Tower would rather capture the birds in flight than man. However man continues to cloud the landscape with ill repute and regurgitated lies that dwell on the temporary as if now is for all times. But, those that look to the Wind and see the flight of the Black Crow and his call know of Peace and Paradise that will be instilled.
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.
The good friend and colleague of Einstein Maurice Solovine, with whom he had read Hume and Mach in the days of the Olympia Academy, told Einstein that he found it “strange” that he considered the comprehensibility of the world to be “a miracle or an eternal mystery.” Einstein countered that it would be logical to assume that the opposite was the case. “Well, a priori, one should expect a chaotic world which cannot be grasped by the mind in any way,” he wrote. “There lies the weakness of positivists and professional atheists.” Einstein was neither.
To Einstein, this belief in the existence of an underlying reality had a religious aura to it. That dismayed Solovine, who wrote to say that he had an “aversion” to such language. Einstein disagreed. “I have no better expression than ‘religious’ for this confidence in the rational nature of reality and in its being accessible, to some degree, to human reason. When this feeling is missing, science degenerates into mindless empiricism.” (“Einstein His Life and Universe,” Walter Isaacson p. 462).
Man has come to denote more credence in opinion than in facts. What is Free Speech without God? Are ideas just thoughts not based on facts? Do opinions ring true when based on facts? The Messengers of Truth are among the multitudes. There is always a remnant that no manner of evil will ever be allowed to remove.
The Comprehension Of The World Beyond Man?
Did our good friend and Brother Albert Einstein
surely see the world through spiritual eyes? Solovine
frowned on such nonsense as he was a classical scientist
who only saw what most other people could see. As we
digest this question we know as a creative artist that there
is a great mystery that surrounds the real environment in
which we live.
The search for a Methodology for Obtaining Truth is benefited greatly by the proper classification and definitive quality of various truths. The nature and meaning of facts and ideas are also very important. Meanwhile, have the philosophers of the past ever tried to explore the exact nature of Social Science Inquiry? Is this a possibility or just a needless waste of energy? (Prose excerpts taken from “The Methodology For Obtaining Truth: Part 7: What Are Facts And Ideas.” Carl A. Patton, FreedomJournal Press).
However as the righteous walk in the Spirit we can see
things not yet seen with the naked eye. This is good, a
part of the miracle blessing of thinking and coming to
rational conclusions regarding what one has witnessed
and what he knows is there but cannot see. Does that
(Truth) "FreedomJournal what are your sources of information? Heretofore you have only noted the philosophers of Western Civilization. Have any other people contributed to an understanding of Human Reasoning? Most especially who are the people that laid the foundation for your revolutionary theory that Social Science can be formulated as an exact science?"
So Einstein shedding and defusing Solovine saw an
eternal mystery throughout the things he saw. However
there was great logic in the opposite view if one leaned
on the tainted dogmatism of most scientists. Thus they in
their logic the likes of Solovine saw the world as not a
comprehensible being. This world could not be explained.
(FreedomJournal) "Truth it is for sure that there have been various indirect attempts toward proving our point regarding the exact nature of Social Science. For example the Marxists flirted with this theory as Marx and his colleagues dabbled in Dialectical and Historical Materialism. Marxists guided by the positive nature of economics as a determent factor however lost sight of reality and race in the equation. But the greatest obstacle to Truth among the Marxists is the denial of God who is the center of Truth.
Meanwhile some of the greatest efforts toward forming a rationale for exploring this subject fall to John Locke (1632-1704), Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Joseph Butler (1692-1752), Frances Hutcheson (1694-1746), Bernard Mandeville (1670-1733) and Lord Shaftesbury (1671-1713).
However David Hume (1711-1776) who published "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding” in 1748 has probably made the greatest contribution toward forming the point of departure for our search for a methodology for obtaining Truth. But the Holy Bible, the Torah and Quran are our primary sources that look to the ancient record of God Centered Truth."
This was the hall-mark of the positivists and atheists.
But our friend is neither as we often find him in the closet
on things spiritual but he keeps sticking his wooly head out
for us to see, if we can. So as the great Dr. E. concludes that
his notion that there is an underlying eternal mystery that is
comprehensible regarding the world led him to declare that
his rationalization stemmed from his religious beliefs.
(Truth) "Well FreedomJournal once again you attempt to defy the reality as viewed by the present world. So the previous thinkers have stopped short of really explaining this question. Why? Why did these people even though most realized the presence of God fail to see the reality of God Centered Truth?"
Thus Dr. E. alludes to his “Spooky Action” once more as
he noted he finds no other reasoning to explain such a phenomena.
Solovine once more than once as the true one-way scientist
detested such language as religion to him was a bad word and
not sacred as it is for most that are human. The closet Dr. E.
resided in sometimes became bigger as his leaning on religion
boosted his confidence in things real.
(FreedomJournal) "Truth for your information the wise John Locke argues the following: Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding is not just a statement or epistemology. Rather Locke renders a comprehensive discussion on our intellectual faculties. Meanwhile Hume in the “Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding” investigates the powers of human reason. Hume also seeks to disclose the pretension of traditional metaphysics, which he believes promotes prejudice and dogmatic thinking.
Just what were the religious beliefs of Dr. E. that led him to
declare confidence in a rational nature of reality as only accessible
due to human reasoning and ability to see these things? Without
God then, Einstein are you telling us that science just becomes
a senseless orgy of mundane experiments and observations that
still don’t answer the problem?
But Truth we declare they all fall short of extending their discussion to include the exactness of Social Science inquiry. Therefore we will take what they have said as guided by the Scriptures by way of the Holy Spirit and develop the methodology for Truth. Along the way we will also gain direction from several contemporary philosophers. Rest assured however that there will be a re- order of facts and ideas and many definitive qualities of terms, words, phrases will not be changed but extended.
Empiricism is thus threatened with its purpose and its utility when
used in support of things limited in scope. What are the methods?
Is there always something that cannot be explained for the moment
at least? Who, just who wants to capture all knowledge? If all knowledge
is gained, harvested and stored where would the creative artists go?
We saw Dr. E. once earlier as he declared himself an artist. Are all
great thinker’s creative artists?
Truth then what are ideas and facts? Also, how are facts and ideas important to our discussion and the formula for Truth?”
(Truth) I say first FreedomJournal that we record the classic definition of the word idea. Can one have an idea of an idea? Idea is a plan for action. It is also noted as an image recalled by memory. Thus idea is a thought or picture of anything in the mind, a mental picture. Hence any result of mental activity or understanding."
(FreedomJournal) "So true Truth but what does our friend Hume say about ideas? Can we critique Hume here and gain a better understanding of ides as they relate to our central question and concern?
In his Enquiry Hume pens a section on "Of The Origin Of Ideas.” Thus Hume reveals that ideas are of a complex nature and there is a need to explore not solely what is an idea but where do they come from."
