Intelligentie of chaos

Since science began in the 16th century, it has predominantly directed humanity towards materialism and as a consequence towards atheism. This is neither reproach nor a compliment, but an observation of historical developments. These historical developments are often the logical consequence of a succession of scientific discoveries and the philosophical implications of these discoveries. This has changed since the beginning of the 20th century. Relativity and quantum physics were the preludes to a revolution in physics, which was renamed New Physics. Then in the 1970s, it was discovered that the universe has been mysteriously fine-tuned at all levels, from the first billionth of a second during its creation. This fine-tuning involves the inexplicable balance between the four basic forces of the universe, gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. This discovery implies that even the most basic building blocks of matter, such as atoms and its subatomic parts, can only exist by the grace of an inexplicable, complex, and delicate balance of these basic forces. The chance that this fine-tuning could have come about spontaneously or accidentally is not only unlikely but completely impossible. The mathematical analyzes on this point are inescapable and inexorable. In “Intelligence or Chaos” the author explains that the complexity and fine-tuning of the universe can only be explained by the presence of an all-encompassing intelligence. This all-encompassing intelligence can be given any name or any label. intelligence, the term God is of course obvious. Effectively, this conclusion implies a scientific rehabilitation of God, despite the resistance that such a conclusion arouses in some. Science should be objective and unbiased in the search for knowledge, insight, and truth. Despite all the hassle surrounding religions and fundamentalist fringe, we need to embrace inevitable scientific and logical conclusions for what they are. The conclusion of the author, and of an increasing number of scientists and philosophers, is that chaos and chance are not the driving forces behind our universe, but intelligence and consciousness.
