“Logos: Logical Religion Unleashed” by Steve Madison
"Wouldn’t you want a religion that every logician, mathematician, philosopher, and scientist on earth could embrace, a religion fully consistent with all the points made by Kurt Gödel when he listed the 14 key religious principles he accepted? That religion already exists. It’s called ontological mathematics, predicated on the principle of sufficient reason and Occam’s razor, and constitutes an a priori, rationalist, analytic, deductive religion, metaphysics and physics. Mathematics explains all.
Nobel laureate Paul Dirac said, "God is a mathematician of a very high order and He used advanced mathematics in constructing the universe."
In fact, God simply is mathematics! God is not a non-mathematical Being who sometimes does mathematics. God is a mathematical Being who does nothing but mathematics, hence IS nothing but mathematics. God is one united mathematical Mind at zero entropy, and countless competing, autonomous mathematical minds at non-zero entropy. It is this capacity of God to be both one and many, united and divided, non-entropic and entropic, cooperative and competitive, that gives our reality the characteristics it has.
Galileo said, "Nature is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes—I mean the universe—but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth."
Nature is written in the God language of mathematics because God is mathematics.
Bertrand Russell said, "Mathematics takes us still further from what is human, into the region of absolute necessity, to which not only the world, but every possible world, must conform."
God must conform to mathematics too. Therefore, God is mathematics.
Mathematics transformed alchemy into modern physics, the astounding subject that has revolutionized the mundane world. But why stop there, with the mundane, the immanent? Mathematics can also do for metaphysics what it did for physics, but that means that it can reach, at last, the transcendent order—of God, the soul, the afterlife, everything affirmed by Gödel but abandoned by the modern world, enslaved by empirical and material science.
Thanks to monads—the basis units of ontological mathematics—but which are also spiritual beings (souls, if you will)—the whole religious and spiritual order is not just speculative, it’s mathematical fact.
It is rationally and logically impossible for mathematical monads not to be the basis of existence. Gödel intuited this, but he was unable to work out the details. Others, however, succeeded.
Religion is true. Thanks to mathematics.
The time has come—for a universal rational and logical Logos religion, which at last gets rid of faith, mysticism, superstition, revelation and Mythos. We don't need priests, prophets, gurus and messiahs. We need geniuses. We need the world's top logicians and rationalists. We need the very best mathematicians, calculating the answer to the Ultimate Question of life, the universe, and everything. The answer isn’t "42". It is in fact 0. The only other potential answer was "1"
