String Theorist Concludes We Live in God's 'Matrix'
For many believers, the dichotomy between science and religion has always been false. The distinction has been further eroded by recent claims from a noted physicist. From Godreports:
... Dr. [Michio] Kaku is considered one of [the scientific community's] most respected and prominent voices. He is the co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory...
“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence, not unlike a favorite computer game, but of course, more complex and unthinkable,” he said.
“By analyzing the behavior of matter at the subatomic scale affected by the semi tachyon pitch radius, what we call chance no longer makes sense, because we are in a universe governed by established rules and not determined by universal chances plane.
“This means that, in all probability, there is an unknown force that governs everything,” he noted.
To the layman, Kaku's description might as well be scripture. It's as mysterious and leads to the same conclusion.
Of course, Kaku's conclusion "has riled the scientific community." His credibility cannot be easily dismissed, much as some would like to.
