The Atheist Way to God

Anyone who wishes for themselves a layman’s understanding of physics, mathematics and engineering, the 2011 airing of the BBC production,”The Code,” hosted by mathematician Marcus du Sautoy fits the bill nicely. It’s free if you have a Netflix subscription. Here is a short clip to whet the intellectual appetite.

The upshot is that the entire universe can be modeled through mathematics.

And guess what?!

Mathematics is the language of engineering and computer science.

Inadvertently, this BCC production demonstrates in great detail that the entire universe is engineered.

That is, it isn’t random at all.

And that man’s ability to create technology through engineering was gained by learning and copying “The Code” found in nature.

The atheist approach to the universe, which is modern science, in fact proves the existence of God.

This is because engineering doesn’t happen all by itself and “code” by definition indicates the transmission of coherent, intelligible information.

Both engineering and code taken together or separately prove the existence of intelligent being.

From our perspective as a creature who is engineered from “The Code,” that intelligent being is God.

Consequently, to be an atheist means that one must reject hard cold scientific proof that God exists.

  1. Not in your explanation of what you thought you saw, no.

    Care to try again to explain the “spiritual overtones”…

    Ah yes, repeating what someone said, and thinking it’s funny.

    It’s not.


    Just another example of why there are no successful evangelical/conservative comedians.


  2. First, I’m explaining symphony music to a deaf guy. Then I’m explaining ‘green’ to a blind guy.

    Way down on the list is explaining spiritual overtones to an atheist.


  3. Why can’t an atheist be spiritual?

    But John, do please tell me how your Hebrew cosmogony influences anyone, in any pursuit, today?


  4. Seriously, John, why can’t an atheist be spiritual?

    You are aware, aren’t you, that Buddhists are atheists.

    Maybe you’re not. Sorry. You willfully ignore information like that, don’t you. It interferes with your pantomime version of reality, disturbing those strawmen you just love to play with.

    But John, do please tell me how your Hebrew cosmogony influences anyone, in any pursuit, today?

    I’d be genuinely interested to hear.


  5. Assertion, Mr Silence, is not argument, nor is it evidence. “What I say is indeed true” (the commas are superfluous) is mere assertion. How is what you say ‘true’? Do we only have you word for it? Where’s your evidence? Where do you address Kia’s point that Jesus follows from the existence of a universal code?

    Oh, and it’s ‘BBC’, not BCC as you have at one point. Or is BCC ‘true’ as well and the rest of the world wrong about the initials of the ‘British Broadcasting Corporation’?


  6. […] God of the Bible is not the God of Reason that Answers in Genesis, William Lane Craig, Tim Keller, Silence of Mind and others tell us he is. None of the evidence, some of which we’ve reviewed, supports the […]
