    God: Interaction or Intervention

  • 1

 

What if God and nature are one and the same? That is the basic definition of Pantheism. So what, then, is the definition of Pandeism?

I have heard multiple answers. The Wikipedia answer is that God created the universe and then became the universe, and as a result, God no longer exists as a separate entity. Pantheists do not believe in a personal God, which normally would be a characteristic of Theism. Panentheism and Panendeism are beliefs that God encompasses all of nature but also transcends and extends beyond nature.

Even if the semantics are confusing, quite a number of people share the notion that God created the universe for a purpose, and God may have created the universe and remains connected with it in order to experience that creation. This is an interesting speculation. If God remains connected experiences the creation through us, then we are all connected. God does not seem to manipulate the natural order in supernatural ways. Despite the claims, there is no evidence that God has intervened and interfered with the natural laws. But if God remains connected and experiences the creation through us, it would seem that God does interact with His creation, albeit in natural ways, not in supernatural ways that violate natural physical laws. Does God guide us while interacting? What evidence could there be to support that supposition? 

Still, to a certain extent, such speculation could answer the question of why God created the universe. Bernard Haisch, Ph.D. in The God Theory suggests that "the purpose of life is experience; God wishes to experience life through you." And although I am thoroughly uncertain of what God might wish, Haisch's theory is as good as anyone's.

    Well looking at creation or if you wish nature, it seems to me there is evidence in it for a creator which has given to the critical thinking, ethically cognizant part of Creation certain faculties some of which can, for a lack of a better word, be considered spiritual and/ or ethical. If that is so, it would only be logical to assume an ethical-spiritual purpose for creation. In which case and observing nature's process and stages of growth in life forms and inanimate matter, it could be posited, that at least one purpose of Creation might be to grow ethically and spiritually

    It's an endless discussion, why God created the universe? People who have no religion are asking such questions all the religions have their ideology and the follower's belief is strong. we should focus on noble deeds, truth and piety.
