Before I begin my post, I urge you to have an open mind, and momentarily suspend your disbelief.
A mathematical system such as a function, a matrix, an algorithm, or even a computer program have 3 fundamental similarities. Input, Constants, and output. The way it works is the mathematician or programmer creates the constant. Essentially this is the equation, or matrix set, or program engine. Then input can be put into the constant, and output will be determined. Input can be data points, user input, essentially any information relevant to the constant. Then the constant determines the output based on the input.
The natural universe has these same similarities. Constants, are the laws of physics. Input is all the matter and energy in the universe, as well as it's location, and the output is either not yet determined, or is continuously being monitored by the creator of the constant. In this view God is not the all powerful being that most religions make him out to be, but a being responsible for our existence nonetheless.
I don't expect many of you to agree with me, but I hope that I can be considered an ally in my opposition to dogmatic belief systems.
