i am sure they believed in most default settings at the time of their lives. the point is not that they believed that the laws of physics show the beauty of god’s creation, but that they realised that the physical world is governed by rules that are within the purview of human intellect and can be so accurately measured or calculated that future events may be predicted based on these rules. this was the beauty that must have shocked them for an explanation and the only one they had at that time was god. from here, it is but a short step into believing that if god is not interfering with gravity, then that is one less thing for god to worry about. as we find these so-called rules to the universe, we are slowly taking away more and more work that god was supposed to do. eventually, we end up with nothing for god to do! the same argument holds for darwin
i understand that there might be emotional attatchment (i took years to discard my security blanket). i understand that there may be resistance from community. i understand that there will be denial of the truth as a last ditch effort to hold on to this comforting notion. i understand it will take time…but, it must go. for our own good. for the sake of our children and the future of this world. we must stop believing that someone made this world as it is. that s/he listens to our thoughts. that s/he manipulates physical laws as s/he deems fit (changing them or altering them on a whim or a prayer). that the afterlife is more important than this one. that when we hurt people who do not agree with us, we are doing work that is sanctioned by an authority above all. that we need this to be good.
