Human beings are intelligent beings with great curiosity. From the day of their birth, they have great interest in the things around them and themselves, and begin to think about what they are? For example, what is the sun in the sky? What are the moon and stars? How the world came about, etc.
However, because there was no scientific concept in ancient times, people did not know much about the truth of all things in the world, and the ancients gave the color of God to these unknown and mysterious things. So there are many myths and legends, in social legends, God is omnipotent, God created everything, created life, created the world.
With the rapid development of human civilization, it entered the era of science and technology hundreds of years ago. When science gradually enters into human civilization, many things in nature can be explained by science, so the past creationism is broken. But then some great scientists put forward such a view: the end of science is theology.
Some scientists have linked science and theology, among which Newton and Einstein are the most representative. I believe many people are familiar with this great scientist. They can be said to be two of the greatest epoch-making scientists in physics since mankind entered the era of science and technology. The theories of physics and the universe that we use now are basically advancing along the theories of Newton and Einstein.
But these two great scientists began to study theology in their later years. Newton is the most obvious. In his later years, he did not study other fields and focused on theology. Although Einstein was not as crazy as Newton, he also devoted a large part of his energy to the study of theology.
Why did two great scientists study theology in their later years? Is the end of science really theology? Newton once said, “there must be an almighty God in charge of all things in the universe. At the end of the telescope, I saw the trace of God. Einstein thought that even a small cup of coffee needs human power to control, not to mention the rotation of the whole universe and extremely complex order?
So what’s the difference between theology in the eyes of scientists and Theology in the eyes of ancient people? In fact, the theological nature of scientists’ research and exploration is also science, but the ultimate science. In fact, the theology that people believed in in in ancient times has been separated from the category of science and is a kind of illusory thing. People tend to generalize the unknown things, which can not be explained by the existing science, into the field of theology.
For example, human consciousness, in the eyes of many people, the world is made up of basic particles, and the human body is also made up of atoms. So consciousness and thinking should also be composed of particles, but we can’t see the particles of consciousness and thinking. Consciousness and thinking are real things, but we can’t find the root behind them. So some people generalize consciousness and thinking into the scope of Theology and think that they are beyond science.
So is that really the case? Of course not. It is an indisputable fact that everything in the world is made up of particles. Whether it is inanimate objects or living bodies, they are all made up of particles from the perspective of quantum micro. Even indescribable consciousness and thought are made up of particles. So why can’t we see the basic particles that make up consciousness?
In fact, the answer is very simple. It is because human science is still very backward. We should know that there is no end to the development of science. There is a huge difference between science 300 years ago and science now. In the same way, in another 300 years, human science system and cognition will reach a higher level. In another 10000 years, human science may develop to a level beyond our imagination.
It is because the development of science has no end, and it is only a few hundred years since mankind entered the era of science and technology. There is still a long way to go between scientific system and cognition. Although we know a lot about the basic particles that make up the world, we are still far from fully understanding them. We haven’t found many microscopic particles, such as dark matter and dark energy, which are very important in the universe.
Especially in quantum mechanics, there are many phenomena that completely subvert the cognition of macro science. However, they are real phenomena in quantum mechanics. We can’t understand them. It can only show that our understanding of quantum mechanics is still very limited. In the field we don’t know, there are many mysterious particles, which dominate the occurrence of these phenomena.
To be pessimistic, the basic particles we know now may be just the tip of the iceberg among all the particles in the universe. What we know is only the skin, the core of truth, the micro particles that dominate the world and the operation of the universe. We have not really found them yet. It is precisely because we have not found these particles that we think that some mysterious phenomena dominated by these particles are beyond our scientific cognition.
Newton and Einstein devoted their later years to the study of theology, not that they believed in the existence of God, but that they might have discovered some more truth behind the world. It is possible to find some microscopic particles beyond our knowledge, which may be the core of the world. Therefore, Newton and Einstein wanted to find out these particles through scientific means and uncover the real mystery behind the world.
It can be seen that people do not understand the theology of Newton and Einstein in their later years. They think that they are wasting time and going astray. However, with the continuous development of human science and technology and the continuous improvement of their cognition of things, they realized that Einstein and Newton did not change their original intention. They also hoped to obtain higher science in the study of theology, so as to realize the leap of human civilization.
For example, a few decades ago, some scientists studied the soul of human beings, which was also regarded by many people as not doing their proper work and in total futility. But today, decades later, more and more scientists are studying and exploring human consciousness and soul, which shows that more and more scientists have made great changes in their cognition of this aspect. What used to be considered impossible is now possible.
In the past, people thought that immortality could never be achieved, but with the rapid development of science and technology, the rapid development of gene technology. Scientists have begun to study immortality, which shows that in the world of science, nothing is impossible, as long as science is sufficiently developed, everything is possible. From this we can see that science and theology are closely related. Theology is the end of science, and theology is not science.
In many people’s cognition, God can create all things, can create the world, can create life, can live forever. So can science achieve this at the end of its development? The answer is yes. According to Einstein’s mass energy equation, we can see that energy and matter can be transformed into each other. The universe we live in comes from the big bang of singularity 13.8 billion years ago, and this singularity is a dense super energy source. At the moment of its explosion, the released energy begins to be transformed into matter, and then there are all things in the universe.
When technology reaches the end, we can also produce dense energy materials like singularity. At that time, we can also create the universe, create the universe. For the creation of life, as long as we master all the genetic codes of life, it is not difficult. And for a civilization that has completely mastered the code of life, is it still difficult to live forever?
It can be seen from this that what God could do in ancient people’s imagination can also be done when science develops to the end. So science is theology, and the essence of theology is science. There is no difference between them.
