Did This Post Exist One Second Ago? February 13, 2009

Largely irrelevant but cool picture

Largely irrelevant but cool picture

Fever persists.  So do weird thoughts.

Wondering about a quantum God.  A God that both exists and does not exist at the same time.

Why do I wonder?  Because I can.  I am a radical agnostic.  I refused to disbelieve God because He is just too much fun to think about.

Let’s take God’s existence out of the equation.  Let us just theorize…Is it possible for God to exist, given what we know of the reality of the universe, or the multiverse, or, as Douglas Adams called it, the “Whole General Mish-Mash”.

Answer:  how the hell should I know?

I’m pretty sure this is the correct answer.

Let us hypothesize.  Let’s take some ideas from my (Pregenesis).  Let us assume that, if life exists in the universe, then that life will tend to evolve until it either dies out, reaches a steady state, or continues to evolve until it no longer has any advantage to evolving further.  In a universe filled with chaos, where uncertainty is the only provable constant, the only state in which there is no advantage to further information/evolution is the state of maximum perfection.  Call this state God.

Following this line of reasoning, all we can say is that God WILL exist (this is all hypotheses, which means don’t argue with me….I KNOW there are probably holes in the reasoning.).  The next question is, is our God capable of traveling the time line  Does He only exist in the moment on the expanding sphere of the hyperbubble that is our universe, or can He exist in the past as well  Is He then capable of affecting initial conditions?

The correct answer to this question is: Beats the shit out of me.  I haven’t a freakin’ clue.

So we throw some probability and statistics in, and we add quantum theory just for funsies.

Answer: God either exists now or He doesn’t exist now.  Absolute uncertainty.  Using quantum rules, He might be said to both exist and not exist simultaneously, and won’t resolve into a determined state until I die and he tosses me into Hell for daring to ask these kind of questions.

Now, I’m not talking a biblical God.  I usually throw out the Bible for these kind of questions, because I consider the Bible to be totally irrelevant toward God’s actual existence.

Next, I have to talk about God’s gender.  The English language does not possess a suitable gender neutral pronoun.  I could use “it”, but that word seems disrespectful.  The Biblical God is a He all the way through in the Bible’s original language.  So, for this argument let’s pull the Bible back in.  I refuse to do all kinds of linguistic gymnastics trying to stay gender neutral.  I’m far too lazy for that, and I truly couldn’t care less.  So He it is.

But He implies a She…otherwise, why bother?  Most gods are shes.  Makes more sense that way.  But He was the way it was written, and He did have that thing with Mary supposedly.  Unknown + woman = child.  You fill in the blank.

And I capitalize both He and God because I’m talking about the supreme being and the rules of English require that I do so.  I’m just trying to avoid a lot of meaningless arguments on meaningless points by putting down my meaningless arguments now and saying that I’m not going to listen to you if you have a contrary meaningless arguments.  You’re might be right as hell and your arguments may not be meaningless at all.  Guess what?  I’m still not going to listen.

Now, did this post actually exist before you saw any evidence of its existence?  Was this post in a quantum indeterminate state up until that moment?  *I* know I posted it.  How freaking important are YOU in this equation?

I guess that’s not my problem.  You sort that one out.

I have the feeling I’m going to have more weird dreams tonight.

Love and hugs and, like, whatever.

are you actually doing something to drive your fever down ? 🙂

Yeah, I took some pills. I think the fever is gone now. I kinda miss the pseudo psychedelic state it produced though. 😉

I love these posts!!! They are great! You are so creative! I especially loved that bit where you wrote that God doesn’t exist til you die and he tosses you into Hell for asking these questions! (giggles)

I must admit — with my “seriously-into-God” brother and sis in law, I sometimes get worried and upset at how God (if He exists) will treat me when I die. I sure hope that he has more of a sense of humour (and not the mean=- hahahaha– you fell on your butt sense of humour) and is lighter and more forgiving than my brother describes Him as being. For instance, I had some Pork Ribs from Costco tonight (I don’t usually eat Pork but these looked good) ….and according to my brother, that is me going directly against God’s wishes because he tells us not to eat Pork and Shellfish in the Torah, and if I don’t follow the Torah, I am not respecting God. I sure hope that God is more forgiving than that because I LOVE shellfish and I can’t wait to use my “Red Lobster” gift card. (grins)

Happy Valentines Day!!! 🙂 *(another thing my brother is against because it is “pagan” … Ugh) 😦
