Re: Dr. Neil DeGrasse - A fascinatingly disturbing thought
What is fascinatingly disturbing is that brilliant people like Neil DeGrasse can invasion and embrace thoughts like that and at the same time spend their whole lives coming up with ever more complicated ways to deny that we could have been created on purpose by God. They can accept unfathomably intelligent beings, but they can't accept the concept of God. Sad.

Yeah, but the stool you dropped this morning is made of the same stuff. So yeah, to the materialistic conditioned mind, great. I suppose that is why in one of his incarnations Vishnu rolled around in crap. God is spirit, and God is looking for those who will worship in spirit and truth.

But they cannot get around to God. Better to eulogize emphatic about atoms.

You completely missed Neil's point and mine as well. That cognitive power you are referring to would be nothing more than a chimp's mocking to another being just 1% more intelligent than ourselves. That’s what he said. He realizes that, but at the same time is agnostic and chooses not to care about the significance of it outside of keeping that next 1% level of intelligence in his little comparatively chimp-like non-God box.

Science and faith don’t have to be mutual enemies. There is room enough to explore and attempt to explain the world we can see and have faith in the one we can not. Refusing to accept the possibility that there is something more than you can see in your limited capability is a limitation on your potential for growth both in knowledge and spirit. You don’t have to stay like the chimp.

We are more than flesh and blood. I know that God did create us, but to borrow from Neil a little bit, it would be incredibly arrogant to think that we are alone in the universe; that he had not created others. The angels are one example, but why would an infinite God stop at just two creations and put them in a universe that in our entire history we have not been able to explore? God is bigger than and so is the breadth and depth of his creation.

If you spend your whole life looking in the sky for answers thinking it will look like a red box, you may never see the answer of the blue ball beneath your own feet. You can't see what you are not looking at.

I'm not saying the guy isn't smart or observant and I'm not going to be insulting like some others in this thread have been. Look at my first sentence. I called him brilliant. I enjoy listening to people like him discuss science. He is awesome at that, but Neil isn't looking for God. He is looking to explain the mechanics of the universe in the absence of God because he doesn't care. That is what I called sad. He sees so much and yet is still blind to what matters most.

Don't believe me? Ask him. Here he is in his own words. He says, "I'm agnostic and it's more that I don't really care. I don't want to have to spend all this energy, but I keep getting called out into the boxing ring, largely against my wishes." He just wants to chase the mechanics of science and ignore the Creator of it. That is what is so sad.
