|How do you think?|
We all are capable of abstract thought, but it seems no two think exactly the same. Everyone disagrees with each other on everything from small differences to large ones. Hence some believe in God, others aren't sure, while others are sure they don't believe. Some can imagine an infinite universe in all directions and others refuse to accept such an idea. Some are limited in their analysis by their known senses. To them, if it can't be discerned, it can't be. What about the existence of what we can't discern? We are physical in nature, so we discern with our physical senses. If we all had a way to detect the spiritual, would we then "see" it and believe it? Is it not possible that there exist other forms of energy and even matter that we cannot discern because we lack the senses to perceive them? Dark energy, negative energy, string theory, etc. are theories of energy and matter that we cannot yet physcially discern. Mathematical equations are sensory tools that help us discern what our senses cannot, but we cannot yet prove or disprove many theories because we cannot yet sense them. The point I wish to make is that we must keep our minds open to all possibilities, not just those that our mind finds the easiest to accept. Many people form an opinion without considering all possibilities and they create arguments to support their opinion, rejecting everything that contradicts it. I am constantly amazed at how convicted and definite so many people are in their opinions. For example, to dismiss God just because you believe you can explain the universe without God is no proof that God does not exist. To dismiss an infinite universe just because you can't fathom an infinite universe is no proof it doesn't exist. Open your minds and postulate the impossible. Don't think for a minute that your way is the only way. What science knows today is often misproved tomorrow. Share your postulates, but don't attack someone's opinion because you can't comprehend their postulates. So, my opinion is that we all think a little differently and that it is a good thing that we do. I postulate that it is so due to an absolute intelligence that created all.
