Thanks, June for your bio and current thinking. I have a similar family background with 90+ years of studying “ultimate concerns,” and have reached similar ideas. Like Loyal Rue I do not rely on any divine help or explanation, but I don’t think nature is enough. History shows that humans have always had need of a superhuman to provide explanation and sustenance for existence, a cause, hero, and moralizer. Quantum physics and cosmology now support such mystical concepts with “many worlds” wave collapse and “multiverse” emergence. It may be an aspect of nature not yet discovered, but I think we have to be open to possible alternate reality that may contain some form of deity. Anything is possible but we have to live in the world that presents itself to us. Not everything is probable.
