Defining the Purpose and Source of the Universe Without Considering Religion

Authors: James R Johnson

Does our universe have a purpose and was it created by an external source? This paper, without considering religion, argues that it has a purpose and was designed by an intelligent designer. The first argument for a “Life” purpose is based on two special features of life, intelligence and consciousness. The second argument for purpose is an observation, the universe acts like it has a purpose. The rational for selecting the source of creation as an “Intelligent Designer” over the “Just Exists” option also has multiple arguments, such as: specifying universal rules and laws of physics; rationalizing the universe’s clever, ingenious design; explaining fine-tuning of particle masses and force strengths; and, defining Big Bang assumptions. The task is to understand what assumptions are currently most rational considering: the importance of life/consciousness; arguments for source of creation; and, processes for producing energy, such as, the speculative multiverse theories. Additionally, the analysis provides perspective on other source options for our universe: a Life Principle; a self-comprehending causal loop; and an advanced civilization.
