I suppose this story begins where all stories begin – in the beginning. But is there anything that began before God or Time? And of the two, does one necessarily precede the other? When questioning concepts of a cosmic scale, we must never lose sight of the fact that any speculated answers to these questions will probably never be proven, and ultimately each individual can rightfully believe whatever they choose to without fear of ridicule from me. In discussing topics that are at the base of human experience, I aim to respect the beliefs of others and am cognizant of the fact that most people don’t want to change their worldview. The philosophy of IGITY is meant to find commonality between all world views rather than disrupting them. By uniting society with a collective sense of acceptance, the world will become a better place. The revolution has already started – are you ready to join?

    I have trouble with the IGITY philosophy in that it tries to connect God and Time. Time is real. We know it exists. God..not so much. God is more of a belief. The existence of God is debatable. The existence of Time is fact. So why does the IGITY philosophy bring God into the equation?

      Thank you for your comments! While personally I agree that the existence of God in its traditional form is impossible to prove and that time is hard to refute, I recognize that God can take on many different forms for different people. For the atheists among us, because we decided that we don’t need God, IGITY is essentially about time. But the majority of the world sincerely believes that there is a God, and although the existence of God cannot be proven, neither can it be dis-proven. It is my ultimate hope that IGITY can be used to identify the common ground and philosophy that both atheists and deists can agree upon. In order to reach the widest possible audience, I am attempting to respect the beliefs of others while relating two concepts which I perceive to be very similar in nature. In short, I bring God into the equation because it (hopefully) allows the idea to appeal to more people and it begins to unite two belief systems which are often considered mutually exclusive (and allows for the catchy acronym!). Whether or not God exists, most people believe that God exists…and this point cannot be ignored or dismissed without subsequently alienating the believers and threatening their worldview. Nobody will ever know for sure, and thus both sides should be considered for fairness. I hope this has helped to explain why I choose to also focus on God. I appreciate your comment and encourage more people to join the discussion!
