This is a continuation of the post I had here a couple weeks ago, about life.
Our conversation continued as weeks went on, but no solution was prevalent. We delved deeper into the creation of life and how it all came to be. It suddenly struck us that we have been thinking inside the box, inside of existence... You see everything that we know is made of matter... and matter is nothing more than protons, neutrons and electrons all revolving in their sequence and creating "matter." Well, both my friend and I are in the computer field, he is a programmer and I am a network admin, but we both think with this analytical mind that tends to run through most IT professionals. Admittedly, my friend tends to have a more analytical mind than I do, and it was he who first introduced the thought... if everything is made of "matter" and we are nothing more than protons, electrons and neutrons, then aren't we all just the same thing. On some level all of existence is boiled down to 1's and 0's, or p, n, and e.
So, that ground you're walking on is the same as the sky we see and the air we breathe and the car we drive and even us. We are all nothing more than machine code... 1's and 0's.
-- I am going to take a moment and explain myself and my beliefs. I am a Christian, which means I am a follower of Christ, of his teachings and his life. I try to exemplify everything Jesus taught through my life. I fail, but I try. That's all God asks. Anyways, most Christians believe that the first part in Genesis is the whole story about creation, but I do not. You see God uses nature, he uses order, he uses truth to define what he does. There is no one who can prove to me that both Creation and Evolution, both happened. I just do not see disparity between them, but parity.
(Now, my friend does not believe as I believe. I'm not exactly sure what he believes, but I know he defines his beliefs by what in tangible and what he can see or prove, using science. He may believe in a higher being, or he may not, it has never and will never define our friendship, so basically it provides for some interesting conversations)
I guess what I am saying is, in John 1:1-2 says : "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." This word "Word" is in reference to the Greek word "logos," which means so much more than "word." It means, truth, order, and reason. I have done some research on this topic, and in order to study the Bible, you must understand the language it was presented in and why certain words were used. Logos, meaning reason and order creates a much more interesting view of God to me, one that explains everything that I see.
You see if we are all 1's and 0's then we have an order and a reason at least on this most basic of levels, but what created this order and what made this reason in all of existence? I believe it was God, for in Genesis 1:1 it says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." So, there was nothing, chaos, emptiness without order and reason, and God, the embodiments of all that is order, reason and truth, made the heavens and the earth. You see everything has order, whether or not we can define it by our math and science, everything has a reason and an equation. God is this reason, this equation.
