EINSTEIN: GOD, RELIGION & SCIENCE
PART 22: EINSTEIN: THE BEAUTY OF SEARCHING FOR TRUTH
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: We bear witness that there will come a day when all of science will look to the Bible. There the greatest answers to the dilemmas and problems of man are found. However those that twist and turn a deaf ear to those that are nonconformists (T=ss²) see nothing. All will not be saved nor will all conform to the world. But eternal peace will be granted to the wise. Are the wise poor or rich? Can one be rich and wise? Can one see God and be poor, rich and wise?
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.
Nonetheless, Einstein insisted that he still could not “accept the view that events in nature are analogous to a game of chance.” And so he pledged to continue his quest. Even if he failed, he felt that the effort would be meaningful. “It is open to every man to choose the direction of his striving,” he explained, “and every man may take comfort from the fine saying that the search for truth is more precious than its possession.” (“Einstein His Life and Universe,” Walter Isaacson, p. 468).
The land extended famished and heart stricken as body and soul looked. However all things were plentiful for all. So was the Truth of the Creation found to be free? There was once a time when a man came to reveal himself in self expression, through words, songs, dances, Oh to paint and see pictures among canvas. Here in the Divine he saw the great Creation this is what inspired him. Hence blessed were the trees, the air and the wind. Meanwhile there was a man who did not know God. Nor did he know the Creation. He also claimed artistic expression. He lost the supremacy of the Creation and sadly saw only pictures of Jesus and the Prophets.
Surely it is not the conquest but the struggle in the pursuit of Truth. However this beauty becomes lame and bland without God for without God there is no real Truth. Will those that sincerely know God obtain ultimate Truth? What of the other great thinkers? Are they limited in knowledge and Truth?
To Serve God Is To Search For Truth
Many a Truth seeker came and some went
with God and some knew no better. Those
that went with God never found Truth as the
search was endless but in the midst of the search
there was always peace.
As we come with a sincere desire to serve God, we realize that the world is troubled. The world is troubled because many deny the existence of God. Some also claim that the existence of God is not certain or impossible. Still others claim to know God but try to fix God the way they want Him to be.
Meanwhile the world and the multitudes are lost and deny the free gift of salvation. Also, they deny answers to many of the world's problems. Let the record show that during the early and initial existence of humankind there was a great belief in the existence of a Supreme Being. Thus they noted God as the Creator and at the center of all that existed and things that would come to exist and things that would pass away. (Excerpts taken from “The Methodology For Obtaining Truth: Part 14: How Does The Disbelief In God Impact On Truth.” Carl A. Patton, FreedomJournal Press).
One day one man thought he had found Truth
thus he put Truth in his pocket. He also attempted
to hide Truth among many other things that he thought
would camouflage Truth as he and he only should
be able to have Truth.
However as God blessed humankind with wisdom and knowledge many great thinkers began to think that their knowledge and wisdom came from them and not God. Thus the intellectual community, became puffed up, selfish, elitists and godless. Many became atheists and denied the existence of God. Still others became agnostics and declared that nothing is known or can be known about the existence of God or about things outside human experience. The term agnostikos is Greek in origin and means "not knowing." Most sources note that the British biologist Thomas Henry Huxley introduced this term into English in the 19th century. Meanwhile, the basic belief system in contemporary agnosticism is revealed in the works of the British philosopher David Hume and the German philosopher Immanuel Kant.
Meanwhile another man gained great joy in the
pursuit of Truth. In his quest he helped many people.
He also read where his witness would bring him a blessing.
However he never considered only bearing witness to
Truth for a blessing as he knew that this was promised
but not something he sought to acquire beyond his service.
"Well Truth why have you used the work of Hume as a source to explain specific points about our search for a methodology for obtaining Truth? Also do you plan to explore Hume's writings further? What about the philosopher Immanuel Kant?"
"Thank you so much FreedomJournal I knew you would ask that question. David Hume was born in 1711 he is an example of the later philosophers that established agnosticism. However our review of his "Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" and our eventual look at his "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion" are useful tools toward gaining answers to many of our questions. The arguments by Hume and Kant that point out that God does not exist allow us to understand the lack of knowledge among those considered great thinkers.
As the conversion process continued for the second
man he realized that Truth came with a great price.
But there were great rewards in the end. Was there an
end to Truth? The first man thought there was an end
as he thought he could acquire all Truth. Along the way
there was no time for talking as he wanted to get to the
end and conquer Truth which was impossible.
Immanuel Kant was born in 1724 in Konisbourg, East Prussia. He was not in agreement with many conclusions rendered by Hume. His major and most celebrated work is "Prolegomena To Any future Metaphysics," and "Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Morals."
It is for certain that these great thinkers stopped short of making a greater contribution to human knowledge. Furthermore what kept them away from ultimate Truth was their belief that one could not prove that God exists."
"Truth are you arguing that Truth can only be obtained by knowing God?"
"Yes and no. Ultimate Truth can only be obtained by knowing God. However Hume and Kant noted much Truth, but the level of Truth they reached was shallow. Before I proceed further allow me to elaborate on Knowing God.
Another day came upon
me as I had wrestled
with dark cold black
lies all night long.
Sad are the days I
spend as man lost
and found insist on
following the Devil.
Even more dismal is
the stark reality that
so many follow lies
and denounce Truth.
Are there any in the
houses of God that
have a burning desire
to tell the Truth?
(Excerpt from “Truth In The End,” by Carl A. Patton, FreedomJournal Press)
Many people profess to know God. Nevertheless, to know God one must be consistent in thought, action and deed. You cannot be a "fair weather" believer. Nor can you attempt to re-write the Bible. To know God also means that you will make the ultimate sacrifice. Those that know God are not materialistic and will never seek to use God or the church for financial gain. Meanwhile the knowledge possessed by those that know God is transformed into what is described as the Spiritual Scientist. All can come to know God but all cannot become Spiritual Scientists."
"Truth I see that you are well on the way toward establishing the methodology for obtaining Truth. Thus it is clear from your previous statements that one cannot obtain ultimate Truth without God. But tell us this Truth? Why have so many great philosophers received fame and fortune while denying God? Who have set the greatest precedents for the disbelief in God?"
