Faith and science are based only on truth
Intelligence and Faith from a Scientists View
-- The Second Law of Thermodynamics --
Intelligence Dictates Order and generates power to do work
1. The second law of thermodynamics regarding entropy applies to chemical systems but it also is a reflection of the universal nature of all matter, molecules, structures, living persons, societies and nations. Accordingly we see that
any system or person isolated from outside intelligence will become devoid of order without light and truth and fall into decay.

2. Intelligence is truth and organized light and can only originate or exist within a matrix having substance. ~~~~~ From Webster's 9th New ollegiate Dictionary, 1983:
"Intelligence is the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate ones environment" (and thus to do work).
From Websters New World 3rd Collegiate dictionary, 1989: "a) The ability to learn or understand from experiences" (or counsel).
" b) Ability to respond quickley and successfully to a new situation."
The use of intelligence to make decisions requires energy and can exist only in a matrix having substance, whether physical of
The value of organized light over random light is oberved in laser light technology, as one example, where synchonization of wave lenth, wave position and rotation is created that
gives a laser beam energy, that will cut and drill holes in wood and metal, and make CDs etc.
Another example is in gamma ray surgery.
Gamma rays, which can penetrate through as much as 25 cm of lead, are used to destroy cancer cells or other
abnormalities in the brain because they can be concentrated to pinpoint accuracy and size.
Intelligence is the opposite of entropy (chaos) and is harmonious with order, virtue and with the capacity to
direct and do work. The light and truth thereof are obviously the opposite of evil, darkness - and significantly - of doubt. The source of all intelligence is the creator of this earth, Jehovah. It cannot originate in a vacuum nor from a substance void of
3. Intelligence in the Creation: Just as any system without outside intelligence (light and truth) gravitates to a maximum of chaos,
conversely, order increases under the direction of outside intelligence.
Since the worlds were created (organized) by God who directed intelligence into matter, then we can understand
that matter can respond to intelligent direction of energy. This becomes the basis of faith. For man is made of matter and can therefore also respond to intelligence. (Our own spirit has matter but of a different form than the body). Thus, faith
is a function of intelligence delivered from its source - God. Being inspired, Moses by faith in God, parted the Red sea. Being obedient to revelation, Joshua by faith in God parted the river Jordan. Being inspired, Nephi by faith in God obtained the
brass plates. By faith in God’s command he built a ship and crossed the ocean to America. These exampes illustrate the connection between faith and intelligent power as stated by the Savior to the ancient American Nephites: "If ye will have faith
in me ye shall power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me." - Moroni 7:33. So faith to move the waters, to create the earth and to direct our own lives for
good are all the result of intelligent direction of power from God.
4. Faith grows by receiving and relying upon the light and truth that comes from God. -- Faith, being a function of intelligence originating with God does not
originate from man isolated from God. Faith is the process and the means of acquiring truth and virtue from God such that our actions and attitudes conform to His truths and virtues. The channel of acquiring truth is the Spirit of God. By acting upon truth
our faith is alive and we can receive more truth, and our faith grows.
5. Faith is not blind and does not come through blindness. That is,
it does not come out of nothing. It does not and cannot originate within a person who is isolated from outside intelligence. For any system left to itself without outside intelligent direction will gravitate to a maximum of chaos. --
Sir Roger Bacon said that knowledge is power. The power of faith is increased by knowledge of God. The correct use of knowledge is the power to create and to even move mountains -- especially the mountain of sin.
Rejecting it lends to destruction and sin. Therefore intelligence is the guiding force behind what can be the power of knowledge which is faith. This is intelligence received and used. So faith may be defined as the possession and use of light and truth from
its source, God.
6. Rejection of truth -- truth about virtue, or chastity, or about God -- causes doubt and destruction which originates within a person that is isolated from outside intelligence.
That is because rejection, of these qualities of light, is the opposite of faith and the natural result of a system left to its self. So we see the importance of receiving outside intelligence, without which we degenerate into ways and thoughts that
destroy both ourselves and others.
7. Implanting faith. Since faith originates with God, as explained, - and therefore it belongs to Him, - why, then did Jesus say to those healed, "thy faith hath made
thee whole? If it comes from God does it not belong to Him rather than being "thy faith"? When we consider
that informaton, which comes from our neighbor, or books or the news media, is just borrowed material. We do not know of its truth.
But when truth or direction comes
from the Holy Ghost - from God, rather than the whims of men, it is planted in our heart or spirit as a gift or endowment from God - the source of truth. That truth is now yours. By this process it becomes a
living growing entity within you, in contrast to dead wood borrowed from another. You are the primary, a first hand witness (having seen through the eyes or power of the holy ghost who knows all things) and you know the truth with a surety better
than seeing with the natural eye. That is a characteristic of an implant or graft of intellligence from the Holy Spirit like the graft of olive branches shown at the right. You
do not just believe. This is one of the values of a witness from the Holy Ghost. This was the faith of the early martyred saints. This was the faith of the Latter-day saints, martyred and driven from Kirtland Ohio, to Missouri, to Nauvoo Illinois, to the Salt
Lake valley. It was the faith of the Willy and the Martin Handcart Pioneer companies. This was the faith of Joshua and his priests that crossed over the Jordan River, stopping it as they stepped into its waters. (Joshua 3:5-17) It can be our faith when received
as a witness from the Holy Ghost to a vessel that desires and craves obedience, cleanliness and virtue.
8. Recognizing the source of good in our lives is another way of increasing faith. When we recognize the source we can and should then be grateful for the good in our lives and the good around us.
Feeling gratitude, we thereby are drawn closer to the source of the goodness for which we are grateful. The awareness of the source of good or of the blessings in our lives then attaches our feelings to a pillar on the other side of the chasm of
the unknown or the chasm of failure and sorrow. So if we can recognized the hand of God around us then we will grow in feeling a closeness to God and therefore to light and truth. We will grow in faith. Thus we can have a bridge across the unknown leading
to the known or to the rock on the opposite side of the chasm - the bedrock of revelation from God. So gratitude becomes a source and an expression of faith.
And faith is a source of power. We should be aware that
if we are in error about the source of good in our lives, then our gratitude will be misplaced and lack substance being tied to error on the other side of the chasm. And so it is vital that we understand that all intelligence originates with Jesus the Christ.
9. Faith is a source of true joy which joy can only come as a result of ones nearness to God. By doing what is right or good we come closer to God and that brings us more truth and
to more faith. To isolate ones self from the source of truth and light - from outside intelligence - puts one "without God in the world and contrary to the nature of God and therefore in a state contrary to the nature of happiness".
(Alma 41:11) For "in Thy presence is fullness of joy. At Thy right hand are pleasures for evermore". (Psalms 16:11)
10. The realilty of God
If there were no God, then there would be no spiritual component to man (feelings, desires, agency, emotions) and our
existence would only be temporal, with death ending our existence, and our life of no consequence. There would be no wrong or right, no bad nor good , no sin. And laws would only be for those who want their own way regardless of the general
society. No one could say that they had a right to anything.
But we do have a spiritual component with feelings desires and thoughts. And there is a God who created the universe and man and gave him his spirit
and thereby life. Consequently we have a responsibility or accountability to God and to His laws, which must and does supercede any law or philosophy made up my man.
