Prologos, I am only posting my views here as I see it. I have not compared all of my views to known facts., so it is only as I see things.
It seems to me that if the energy of the universe is not zero then the system is not at equilibrium and that creates a lot of problems. Another thing to consider if the energy of the universe is greater than zero is where did that energy come from? Creationist would erroneously conclude that such energy is proof that God pushed the button but it would appear to falsify the Bible's information that it was by God's will that things were created which makes sense in a zero energy universe (given that God created the universe) -but what do I know except that I am convinced that God exists.
I have done work in a laboratory more than once and it is given that that God does not exist in science which simply means scientific realism is all we've got -in science.
And that makes sense because science would be pointless and reality would be a lie if we could not have faith in the world around us -not to say that we should not give up hope or ask God for help -except that is he not a variable in scientific results..
I do believe in God more than I believe in cause and effect of things but I do not believe that God is a measurable variable that could be found in a scientific equation of the working universe; however, I believe that God can be perceptible to the senses more so than scientific realism as a factor in our lives -but that is only what I see, just my view on things, my position.
