In a TV interview (http://bloggingheads.tv/videos/1367 ), Jim Holt (The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine) and John Leslie discussed the following very interesting issues.
a. How to have immortality without God?
b. Why is there something rather than nothing?
c. Is universe created with physics laws or with the moral laws?
These different issues are, in fact, all coming out from the center one, “Why is there something rather than nothing?” The answer is truly simple. “Something and nothing” are ontologically not mutually exclusive but mutually immanent. They are the two sides of the same coin, and this is described in detail in the article “Law of Creation, http://www.prequark.org/Create.htm “.
In fact, the evolution of this universe has four pop-outs (creations).
1. The pop out of space-time.
2. The pop out of biological lives.
3. The pop out of intelligence.
4. The pop out of morality.
While there are four pop-outs, there is only one pop-out law, and this is discussed in detail in the article “Higgs Boson, a bad idea, part seven, http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2011/08/higgs-boson-bad-idea-part-seven.html “. Thus, John Leslie’s view that this universe was created by Moral laws is as good as the view that it was popped out with physics laws.
