GOD: new evidence


In the image of God?

(Beyond Ourselves #16)

What's in the series?      Previous: Time for an Alternative?       Next: Genuine right and wrong?

'All that we know, all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.'

These are the words of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, father of the World Wide Web. Is he right?

There are only two possibilities: One possibility is that we are just 'the way our neurons are connected.' We are the meaningless products of blind laws that do not have any purpose.

But we cannot live on this basis. And - as we have seen previously - it undermines any claim to know anything.

So what is the alternative? The Bible says that we are 'made in the image of God.' 

This means that we are like God in a small way: we are personal because God is personal; we are rational because God is rational: we are creative because God is creative; we can be loving because God is loving, and so on.

Which explanation covers the ground best? Which fits better with who we really are?

Do we live as if we are just meaningless collections of atoms? Or are there things about our human nature that point to a deeper story – to the reality that we are made in the image of God?

‘The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a God, is one of the most important questions we have to answer. I think it is a scientific question.’
