A new way of proving god exist
After expansion of Islam as a new ideology, Muslim philosophers found philosophical reasoning for existence of God very necessary as inter-faith religious debates arose.
Thanks to former Muslim philosophers and scholars many firm reasons on existence of God has been introduced (e.g. “Eliyyat” and “Nazm”, etc.) which have been able to well describe the Shia’s claims on issues regarding Allah’s attributes and qualities.
Lately I saw an article in a Christian forum which offers a new kind of reasoning on God’s existence which is based on some scientific theories regarding the difference between a “pattern” and a “design”, and the fact that designs can’t come into existence without an intelligent creator. This intelligent creator is referred to as “God”.
And here is the explanation of the reasoning, based on Perry Marshall’s writings:
Patterns versus Designs
Examples of patterns are stalgamites, snowflakes, crystals and tornadoes. The formation of patterns is part of the study of Chaos. The formula for a snowflake is "Water+cold air+gravity+wind+time". Patterns are not information. No information is programmed into a pattern and no information can be decoded from a pattern.
If you are seriously into math, then fractals and mandelbrot sets are patterns. Weather is a pattern but forecasts are notoriusly unreliable because the weather is driven by chaos.
No intelligence is required to form patterns. Only naturally occurring events.
Designs require intelligence. Designs are examples of information.
Music is an example of a design. Notes are represented symbolically on paper. The sounds generated depend on the placement of these symbols on the staff, the shape of the symbol and the order. Music also exists in physical form when the air vibrates in a musical composition.
Windows is a design. It is a binary code in which "on" and "off" signals are arranged in sequences to send coded electric signals to various components of a computer. The component decodes the sequence of ons and offs and takes action based on the coded instructions. Windows XP is estimated to contain in excess of 30 million lines of code. This means that componnents must be capable of decoding the same 30+ million lines.
Language is a design. Language requires symbols that have meaning. Meaning is determined by the specific choice of symbols, the sequence and a standard set of rules to decode the meaning. Languages are a design that requires intelligence.
Designs require encoding and decoding to determine the meaning of the coding.
The DNA molecule is an example of information. Humans have 3 billion base pairs on each DNA molecule. One DNA molecule is a blueprint for an entire living organism; The body, the organs, the enzymes and hormones, the nervous system, the brain. Everything we are is encoded in each DNA molecule in our body.
I am 5'10" tall with brown hair, brown eyes and light skin. I have an astigmatism in my left eye and a deep voice. I have a shallow foot arch and and am right handed. All this is due to the information encoded into my DNA. The DNA I received from my parents and based on the DNA they received from my grandparents.
DNA is an encoding and decoding system. DNA is a language. DNA can be compared with computer programming. DNA is a code.
And DNA cannot have occurred naturally, without intelligent input.
If anyone can offer an example of a design that has occurred naturally without an intelligent input, he\she has refuted the above reasoning. The owner of this reasoning has claimed that so far, no one has been able to do so.
So I think it can be a good way of proving that God exists.
