    In a recent interview, Michio Kaku Speaks about the Two Types of God. I found this to be a fascinating Take on the Modern creationism debate, So I transcribed it for posterity here, He brings up some very interesting points about compatibility issues between two different fundamental philosophies.

    Kaku States, "And this is basically jazzed up, Kaku is a somewhat boring speaker so this is not verbatim"

    Galileo Once said, The purpose of science is to determine how the heavens Go, The purpose of religion is to determine how to go to Heaven. So Ultimately, Science is about the Law, It's about The fundamental way Nature works, While Religion is about Ethics, It's about How to go to heaven, How to be a good person, How to Earn the favor of God, As long as you keep these two concepts separate, There is no problem at all, The problem occurs when people from the natural law group begin to point out ethics, Or when The Ethics people begin to start representing Natural law. This is where things Like Conflict and even bitterness arise.

    Now at the precipice of the two, The Question arises, Can you prove the existence of God?
    Well, First of all, We need to be Very clear about this, There are Two Kinds of God, Kaku Asserts, The first God is a personal God, The God that you Pray to, The God that gives you a Complete in Box G1 Megatron Transformer for Christmas. The God that Smites the Unjust and the God that destroys your Enemies, That's the personal God, Einstein Did not Believe that the God of the Universe Created US Just so we could all get our Original in box G1 transformers. Einstein believed in another God, The God of Spinoza,

    More information On Spinozism Spinozism - Wikipedia


    Spinozism (also spelled Spinozaism) is the monist philosophical system of Benedict de
    Spinoza that defines "God" as a singular self-subsistent Substance, with both matter and thought being attributes of such. ... For Spinoza, our universe (cosmos) is a mode under two attributes of Thought and Extension.

    The God of Liveliness, The God of Order, Harmony. The universe could have been random, It could have been Chaotic, It could have been messy. But, Our universe is in fact, Quite elegant, Quite Simple and honestly, jaw-droppingly beautiful.


    You can put the laws of physics as we know them down in formulas on a simple sheet of paper, It's amazing. It didn't have to be that way, Therefore you ask the Question, Is the existence of God provable? Well, what is Science? Science is based on things that are testable, reproducible and falsifiable, But you see, The existence of God, Is not testable, It's not reproducible, You can't really reproduce God at will. You can't reach into the heavens and grab an angle, Throw them in a box and demand that Miracles transpire. it doesn't work that way, That's why religion is based on Faith rather than things that are objectively testable, falsifiable and reproducible. Kaku goes on to state, Now that doesn't mean God doesn't exist, I don't know he goes on to say, "I don't know if God Exists or not," "All I'm saying is science is limited to what is testable reproducible and falsifiable"

    There are Areas even in Science where you push the boundary of that, Like the Big bang, We cannot reproduce the Big Bang, We cannot test the big bang. It's like a detective story, You can only look at the clues left over from the big bang, So to calculate the instance of creation is in some sense outside the boundaries of science because it's not reproducible, you can not reproduce the big bang. But we can trace the history of what happened afterward like a murder mystery, And that's where a lot of science gets accomplished. And that's why I say the existence of God is not within the normal boundaries of science.
