Is God Just A Mathematical Singularity?

Q: I’ve always been interested in the debate between God/higher power and mathematical infinity/singularity. I’m not saying I believe in one thing or the other. Say, we scientists, take the singularity that supposedly created our Big Bang, which lead to all sorts of beautiful patterns with patterns and chaos within chaos such as plants and black holes, and we ask where this singularity came from. From a scientific perspective, something that supposedly came from “nothing” but managed to unknowingly architect the universe we live in, couldn’t that be considered god? this singularity? I’m not talking about a Christian God or a Muslim God or a Bible, Torah whatever God. Just something that is represented by the mathematical concept of infinity. Something that is bigger, brighter, “more” than us but also contains us. I just think it’s poetic.

A: Your approach errs in that it reduces God to simply a mysterious force of nature, not unlike “The Force” in the “Star Wars” movies.

The Gospels provide us with insights into the true nature of God that are not only much richer and robust, but that also make it easier for us to come to know and love God, as well.

One of the practical aspects of the incarnation of Jesus Christ (God becoming man, and dwelling among us) was giving God a real, human face … along with a real, human heart … and a real, human soul.

In the person of Jesus Christ, the here-to-fore immutable, unknowable God became one of us, revealed God’s salvific plan for mankind, personally fulfilled that divine plan, and then left behind on earth his Catholic church … in order to make his truths and his plan widely known … and his provision universally available … to every generation.

That’s love. And it is also most certainly, poetic!
