Quantum physics is slowly but surely rewriting the laws on what we know about the natural world. The laws of physics that have stood for decades now as the final word on the way things conduct themselves in the physical universe are being found to be meaningless the further down you go. At the quantum level, even the world’s most promising physicists are witnessing things that completely defy all the laws they spent their educational careers understanding. As scientists learn more about this and eventually, at least hopefully, conquer it by harnessing its power, many believe that quantum computers will be the next gamechanger in technology.
A new “theory of everything” is gaining traction in the scientific community. Biocentrism is a new way of looking at things that relies heavily on the concepts behind quantum physics (the ones we know anyway). Robert Lanza is one major supporter of the theory, and he now believes that evidence shows conclusively that human beings are actually hugely sophisticated quantum computers in their own right. And one of the principles that has been proven is that consciousness does indeed survive the physical death of the body and then progresses to another format.
So, if this new scientific theory is correct, they are actually saying that yes, humans have a soul, and yes, after your body dies, that soul continues on to a new plane. Hmm… that’s kind of interesting, isn’t it? It seems that the more science tries to point out fallacy with those that believe in religions that advocate life after death as a reward for your life, the more it manages to corroborate it.
Will this make atheists the world over rethink their point of view? Of course not. It doesn’t prove the existence of a god any more than anything else has. They will simply say that biocentrism is good news because dying looks like a drag, but it doesn’t mean there is a god, but only that this is just the way it really works, and now we are beginning to get a little closer to understanding it. For Christians and other religions, this new scientific data has to be a real comfort. It’s ironic when something that is based on faith suddenly gets a bump from the scientific community.
Which brings up an interesting question. If science did prove that Christians were right, how would that change the world? Would everyone believe? Would everyone then be saved? Could it be possible for science to ever prove this one way or the other so that everyone was convinced?
Nope. No way. Not a chance.
But they might just prove that your soul is going to another place when you die. That might be reason enough to reconsider your life in the present.
