  • Order In The Universe As A Proof Of God's Existence

    Posted by Shahid Ahmad on August 21, 2023 at 8:46 am

    When we look at the universe according to modern science there is always a chaos and there is the tendency in it to become even more chaotic as time passes. But a main argument in favour of the existence of God is the order in the universe. How would you respond to this question? Is the chaos in the cosmos a valid argument in the negation of God’s existence?

    If there was only chaos in the universe then there would not be any laws, hence no science whatsoever. However, that does not seem to be the case. Evidently, this universe follows many physical laws. In fact, without such laws it would be impossible for us to even scientifically claim that there is only chaos in the universe.

    With that said, there is also chaos, and with our current understanding of spacetime, things tend to progress from order to chaos. This is called entropy. Even within this chaos there are evidently pockets of order.

    It is therefore not accurate to say that according to modern science there is always chaos in the universe. In the big picture, there are both order and chaos, however, even apparent chaos is bound by the limitations of order. There is also a possibility that what we consider as chaos is not chaotic at all, but follows certain laws that we are yet to discover.

      If there is not only chaos in the universe but there is also a great order, then why do we ignore it’s order and call this whole universe imperfect, resorting only to chaos?

    There is no reason for one to ignore the order in the universe and focus only on the chaos.
