I was browsing the science section at the bookstore recently and noticed a number of books that claim, in a nutshell, that science has now proven that God does not exist. The most notable of these, apparently, is Richard Dawkins The God Delusion, although there are others. I read some of the reviews online, but have not read any of the books (and probably won't). However, from what I gather from the reviews, the books basically make the claim that science cannot accept the concept of an omnipresent entity which cannot be seen, smelt, heard nor felt. This, naturally, led me back to this topic. Apparently, while science cannot accept the existence of one such entity, it has no problem accepting the concept of billions of them.
This led me to thinking about the nature of man and the nature of God. I would expect that, just as man is not a single entity, but is a collection of the atoms that have arranged themselves to form him, so it is likely that God is a collection of whatever basic components are arranged to form him. While man is created "in His image", it does not necessarily follow that man is formed from the same building blocks, at least the physical form that science defines as man. The soul, which to me is the true measure of a man, does not exist in science. To the scientist, the soul, like God himself, is just an idea, a thought.
But what are ideas? What is thought? Science, while full of ideas, doesn't define what they are. We can't measure ideas, we can't taste them, see them, smell them, hear them, or feel them. We can measure the brain energy that occurs when we form ideas, but we can't measure ideas themselves. Like God and souls, ideas have no mass. They can be expressed. I can speak my ideas, write them down, or post them on the bulletin board, but these are not the ideas themselves, merely expressions of them, shadows, illusions. Ideas themselves, unlike matter and energy, cease to exist when we die, if not before. Unless, of course, they are composed of antineutrinos, and they depart us without interacting. Perhaps we can only imagine antineutrinos because they are made of the same building blocks that comprise imagination. It takes one to know one, so to speak.
So it could be that ideas, souls, and God himself are made of the same stuff, stuff that cannot be seen, smelt, heard, nor felt. Antineutrinos. Antineutrinos are everywhere around us, though we cannot sense them. They are part of us, intermingling with the very essence of our being, or so we are told. Perhaps each and every antineutrino is a part of God, so that he is in each of us, as well.
Science, perhaps, instead of disproving the existence of God, has found him, though they are too blind to see it.
