I see with my eyes and heart or what some say is an innate 6th sense and for me it’s been quite easy to grasp onto even putting aside Holy Scriptures if I must; that the complexity of existence and the impossibility of it all being happenstance or guess work is truly absurd!
This statement is very profoundly key to what I’d like to talk about here!
“I am very glad that I am part of creation. Someone thought of me, then made me. Aren’t you glad?”
That is a truism and some words of wisdom. Someone did think of you and all of this in a completely perfect conceptualization manner, and it’s been said that God’s handiwork can be seen in all of existence! What you said here is a tribute to that revelation by others in the past who peered deeply into the unknown and even incomprehensible but did find significant clues or evidence of the fact that all of this was CONCEIVED and MADE implying absolutely forethought and decisive calculation beyond what we can even begin to fully appreciate let alone understand! But sometimes the obvious answers to the biggest questions are staring us right in the face; but too many people want to think they know better and can extrapolate some quantifiable formula or rationale that puts things in a representational perspective or model of some kind, that they can then promote or sell to the world while avoiding these obvious answers that override all of that man-made formulation of what is going on in the big picture; and no one can ever represent or comprehend God Himself; never going to happen!
I find it very insightful or actually revelatory by this man we all know was a remarkably brilliant person who I think even though his head was immersed in the world of science and theories he had a keen insight into God’s presence and reality like few people can achieve with our limiting cognitive faculties; but I see his respect and love of God was present and genuine; therefore we can say God will judge accordingly, I know for myself from historical fact Einstein was a good and respectful soul in this world, so I do wish him well.
Einstein on Self and the Mystical
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
-Albert Einstein, 1954
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
-Albert Einstein – “The Merging of Spirit and Science”
This man the father of physics had said a few great one liners but two that stand out are these. He referred to God as the “Old One.” He speaking to other physicists was known to have said during a discussion about the Big Bang Theory in which one scientist said that with enough “random events” occurring in this pre-millisecond before it happened eureka the right combination occurred; Einstein just plainly said; “God doesn’t play dice.”
Here I was doing a bit of grappling with this subject recently when I put it all this way!
The precise order and all things seeking or even falling into balance Is all so well defined as to their intrinsic properties it couldn’t be infinitesimally possible for all of this to come out of randomness, and physicists agree on the four uniform integral component laws of physics and there could be a 5th according to some, which some call the “absolute factor” and though this is that which we humans are incapable of fully comprehending, this IT factor ties everything together in a perfect package; and that absolute can only be and is God the all-encompassing and knowing as I have read often enough in Scripture plainly pointing out when God spoke directly to a person, He the Great Old One saying, “I AM that I AM sent you;” to Moses! The Book of Genesis does say “Let us make them in our image;” so we only get to the point we do because God intended for us to be likened unto Him giving the capacity of creativity and reason to expand our intellect and knowledge just like the expanding universe is heading to some completion or endpoint that we are encouraged by and by our growth or completion we’re becoming more like Him our Creator on a spiritual level; becoming more unified.
The more we understand about Nature or overall existence the more we can see it’s obviously a perfect amazing complex structure of Design and very Creative into its deepest depths! Along with great analysis by some scientists going beyond anything that appears to be randomness within the system of quantum mechanics there is instead an unknown physical law that somehow, even though to us incomprehensible, obviously in some way unifies all classical mechanics with quantum mechanics. This may point to and reveal how Einstein’s “Old One” thought as God the Creator; when He created the Universe! Because it all does apparently fit together beautifully and to me that is just too much of everything to have just fallen into place from chaos or total imbalance becoming total balance; without a planned order to things!
But as it all appears to definitely be based on systems and each as part of other systems all interconnecting while continuing to increase to higher levels of complexity. While even each system has its own operating laws, “designed to meet a goal or actual purpose why it was created.” Like I often say we individual humans have a goal to reach while alive in this limited form that can be achieved in a shorter or longer life span no problem; but then additionally we have an integral part to play in other systems or we can say lives too; affecting outcomes or positive decisions is the aim, not sin!
We’re dealing with Nothing more than the continuous unknown position or order of things as we are caught in our limiting sense of time passing, and lacking Absolute understanding; thereby being outside of by our severely limited infeasible capability to know all things, this resulting unknown “order” is therefore being unpredictable to humans, but in nature, all of creation; random does not exist! Its how we have to see things, being as we are and where we are for now!
Also the trickery and deception going on in the world by mankind is absolutely unprecedented now in this digital age wrapped up in a world with so much greed; and for example these social media being a plan or experiment in social engineering is clearly what’s going on. Even on this platform the games and manipulation is constant, while also most people here are in it for just personal gain and even fame! Look around how people plaster themselves all over it or push one thing or another for likes and clicks to make a BUCK or have their ego caressed and feel adulated or even worshiped.
To me, there can be no doubt that “We Little People” are part of the “Big Plan!” So that puts us in a position of utter “humility and need for guidance!”
God bless you!
Happy Thanksgiving! And YES; I’m with you on being totally “very glad that I am part of creation. Someone thought of me, then made me!!!”
Brother in Christ Jesus,

Einstein quarrelled with the proponents of quantum physics, like Neils Bohr of “the Copenhagen group”. Thus Einstein’s statement, “God doesn’t play dice” with the universe. He did not want to accept that quantum theory dealt with probabilities rather than predictable outcomes. Later, Einstein backtracked slightly, enough to claim the problem with quantum theory was that it was “incomplete”, (but npt ecessarily wrong
Many Scientists since have concluded that Einstein was correct and there is really no debate! I see it from the science side and religious, and it meshes fine; absolutely NO problem! There is order in the Universe and Existence fits together perfectly because the perfect perfected it and thought it all out; nothing random about it! But we all need to remind ourselves that we are pipsqueaks, little ants compared to Almighty God the Creator; no chips on any shoulders here!
Its only unpredictable outcomes from our limited and non-totality comprehension of Creation! Quantum theorists were and are wrong when considering it couldn’t be infinitesimally possible for all of this to come out of randomness because they don’t have any other answer to tie it all together so random is their cure but wrong; and many physicists agree on the four uniform integral component laws of physics and there could be a 5th according to others; which there is not because the unknown will remain the unknown as in you will never comprehend God so they can try labeling this factor with random till hell freezes over but they will remain WRONG but Einstein was RIGHT; there is no way science or man can comprehend the “incomprehensible” and Einstein basically said that on various occasions! In other words to make this clear he remained humble and didn’t get too big for his britches like many liberal scientists or atheists do! What we understand in relation to the universe and All of Existence or all-encompassing reality and what there is to know, is like a fart in the wind compared to God’s omnipotence and ALL knowing; again you and I and every person that ever exited or will; know diddlysquat in this regard! Remember we are babies playing in the sand box while the Creator Created it all! Big Contrast; even as big as the BIG BANG!
(continuation/correction): (but not necessarily wrong). From the biography of Einstein by Walter Isaacson, 2007.
My pipsqueak interpretation is that it is all right, meaning that God’s plan allows for free will and infinite creativity. I believe the quantum theorists were saying that even an electron has a sort of free will, enough to vary from the expected pattern. I think God is okay with that. It makes His creation more interesting.
You’re still on a tangent from my precept! All things must align with God and His WILL period; or they are stray “lost particles!” That is all I’m saying! You seem to get hung up on a simple face value fact! I said clearly “in our face answers;” He, God didn’t make it complicated as far as we are to be concerned, people do that vis-à-vis the person or being chooses to challenge Omnipotent God Almighty which is blasphemy; but still many free agents especially in today’s high-tech trickster smoke and mirror age try to no avail; but only to their own demise!
He is the Creator and Omnipotent, we can never catch up to or come infinitesimally close to what is the incomprehensible in any way shape or form, radicals think otherwise as Lucifer did, proving Free Will has its cost factor! Only through Jesus Christ are we capable to know God and fully appreciate Him, then and only then having a personal relationship with Him; God knows exactly what He is doing; we are the ones in trouble and don’t know diddlysquat, or what is necessary to save ourselves and achieve eternal life!!! Humble thyself before God! Got me now! All so simple don’t need to be a theoretical physicist or even any degrees! There is only one sure path to understanding and God’s Truth!
Job 38:4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much.
“An electron has a sort of free will.” No they DO NOT! You’re still speaking to radicals and breaking God’s Laws and Will!
With this concept of yours in motion “crime would pay” and “what is right would have to be wrong” and what is “wrong would have to be right!”
This is what has happened to America and the entire political system people thinking and behaving this way; look at Biden 50 years of being a stray particle; now a radial abomination!
Isaiah 5:20 What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
