Atheists are in Big Doo Doo

Atheists claim there is now sufficient evidence for believing that something can come from nothing – that a supernatural Creator is not needed. They argue that, regardless of what one believes about God, that the mechanistic potential for creation must exist. However, they fail to consider that such a creative mechanism requires anticipating mind. As my other posts explain, anticipation and the momentary absence of whatever is anticipated is the only way that energy can be regressively released and channeled into creating the anticipated state. This is what the limbic design of the brain proves by its anticipatory nature and consequent modulation of the adjacent motor system — for the singular purpose of narrowing an expectancy gap to which infinity is implicit. As other of my essays show and as explained in my book, consciousness is the state of anticipating infinity (one’s own nonexistence) in the absence of some needed action. An image, being finite, restrains the regressive release of energy insofar as the transcendent self sees itself as finite — as contrasted with “anticipating” infinity. In a God-centered universe, anticipation turns out to be a tendency toward and away from weightless nonexistence, with an image being the means by which the Second Law (tendency toward increasing disorder) is contained.

Atheists argue – to the destruction of their own argument – that “empty space” has now been discovered to be seething with activity in the form of virtual particles coming and going out of existence with infinitesimal speed, a bubbling cauldron of energy and creative potential. But where did this bubbling cauldron come from and by what logic – if not the dynamics of an image – is it sustained? It would seem that atheists are confusing their belief in the lack of a true vacuum with their personal conviction and motivation that God doesn’t exist. The seething activity of the “vacuum” doesn’t prove anything other than the necessity for finding a more encompassing cause even for this activity. In short, their worldview is an intellectual quagmire – especially given that, based on a comprehensive analysis of the human brain, space-time itself defines the very essence of an image.

However, the real reason atheists are in trouble in my opinion is that the logic of brain anatomy reveals beyond a reasonable doubt that a transcendent mind preexists the brain’s capacity for releasing and channeling energy into envisioned order – and that an image, requiring by definition an observer, is the means by which the Second Law is contained. In a nutshell, the self sees itself as finite or “conscious” as a probabilistic (if-then) contrast with its own potential nonexistence. If we see an image, then to that extent we remain finite. In other words, every image represents, actually is, the state of anticipating our own finitude – and since we are in fact finite, a regressive disparity between the anticipated and actual body mass is optimized. By similar reasoning, the Universe must also be an image – in the mind of God. Dismissal of this perspective requires that the reciprocal relationship between the visual system and the limbic brain – that is, the dependence of an image on the ponderostatic and thermoregulatory design of the brain – be otherwise explained. I challenge Richard Dawkins or any other atheist to offer a better alternative explanation for this well-known and long established neuroanatomical design.

The Bible teaches that we can only please God with faith, a revelation jibing with the most fundamental, anticipatory nature of an image — solidly based on the unique cortico-limbic design of the human brain. I can assure readers that, based on my analysis of neural design, Darwin as a hero is about to become a goat. He is on his way out as the genius behind evolutionary theory — as it becomes apparent that an image and the related regressive release of energy is the only logical way to take the paradox out of mind and matter.

Anyone wanting a more in-depth analysis of what in the incipient absence of an image I refer to as the “anticipation of infinity” — can find it in my recently published book: Consciousness Finally Explained: A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain. An even more detailed anatomical analysis can be found in my earlier (778 page) book: Journey to the Center of the Brain: Explaining Mind in a Universe of Matter. Both of these books dabble  into how subatomic physics, especially string theory, sets the stage for the creation of the brain — which functions similarly by its relationship to infinity. These books are available through Amazon, and can be accessed HERE.


About Glenn Dudley

GLENN DUDLEY became interested in the mind-body problem as a Pre-Med student at the University of Colorado where he emphasized studies in physics, philosophy, and Judeo-Christian theology. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Colorado in 1969. After a mixed Psychiatry/Medicine internship, he worked for two years at MIT's Neurosciences Research Program -- a think tank whose objective was that of understanding how the hard-wiring of the nervous system mediates thought and emotion. Then, he spent a year in the Department of Psychiatry at Tufts Medical School in Boston reviewing the world's literature on psychological and emotional predispositions to cancer. From 1975 to his retirement in 1998 he practiced primary care medicine.
