If I am to understand Dale Lake`s perspective, whether it is called a theory or not, the person has a perspective, then I can see that God and Science are limited in their joining by Godel`s Incompleteness Theorem. It seems Mr. Godel spent much time on the question of God? also.

If the system we live in as part of and every part contains the whole, since Mr. Lake believes the whole is all there is, then no scientist could ever get outside the whole. Mr. Godel says we can`t prove that the whole is even whole or that the whole is all there is unless we can measure it from outside that system.

So if God is the Void then God is not measurable, just like Einstein`s experience with the aether, and if God`s creation is all One with no other, then science can never prove any of this, and that`s scientifically proven.

So what we have is a sort of natural separation of church and state. We can believe in God without requiring proof, but to disbelieve in this unity of God, the science would require proof.

To believe in God requires no proof, but to insist in the nonexistance of God requires proof.

Interesting zen game Mr. Lake has created for us. I can`t find the holes in his self-proclaimed theory
