Non-personal God: A Quantum Logical Explanation
Siavash Asadi (Ph.D.)

Although believers in a non-personal God, who are often followers of eastern and Abrahamic religions especially in mystical aspects, argue for their belief and also argue to reject the personal God idea, they can’t explicate this idea in a classic logical way. The main challenge is that according to the non-personal God idea, sometimes called Pantheism, both propositions “God is X” and “God is not X” are not false or at least they are indeterminate while, according to the classical logic, one of them must be false. Therefore we have to find a non-classical logic to explicate the non-falsity of these two propositions. Based on similar challenges in the quantum field, this paper tries to present quantum logic as the logic that would be effective to explicate the non-personal God idea. For in the quantum field when an electron verifies “spinx is up”, for example, both propositions “spiny is up” and “spiny is down” shall be undetermined owing to a superposition state. In both cases, non-personal God and the quantum filed, however, the disjunction of two paradoxical propositions could be true and, quantum logic has been created based on this feature.
