A Rational
Universe?
 
CAUSE and
EFFECT
 
"We have never seen a violation of causality. To the contrary, the Universe seems remarkably rational."

-Universe, Kaufmann and Freedman

 

The Principle of Cause and Effect is the foundation for all problem solving. If the Universe were not rational, every event in life would appear as a mere chance phenomenon; paradoxical; defying any logical appraisal. 
 
"The Principle of Cause and Effect gives scientists confidence that every effect has a cause. All of science is focused on understanding the causes of the effects we see". [1]

Because the Universe is rational, there is a strong conviction in cause and effect. For example, we understand that rain is an effect. It rains because water vapor rises, forms clouds, cools, becomes heavy and falls back to the earth. A light bulb burns out because the conducting filament crystallizes and breaks the flow of electricity.

If everyone believed the Universe and its life forms served no rational purpose, no rational attempt would be made to study and understand them.

Cause —or Causer?
Scientists and religions around the world now acknowledge that the Universe was in fact, created. What remains to be answered is, what was the cause or Causer of creation? We'll examine both sides of this debate, but first let's review the evidence provided.

Newton's second law of motion was arguably the first statement that behavior of the universe depends rationally on causes. [8]
 
"If the universe were not rational, then we could never expect to discover causes" [8]
