Imagine a person builds a large aquarium with all the environment set up for the fishes to live in. Once the environment is suitable for the fishes to live in, such as oxygen, plants, rock, sand, and other else, it is up to the fish how to survive in that particular environment.
The fish’s eyes are so poor that they can’t see beyond the looking glass. However, they can feel turbulence caused by either the person touching the glass or some brat stir a whirlpool to the water. This is one of the theory that I initially think about how we live.
The person is acting as a God while we are the little fishes in the tank trying to make the best of our survival. No matter what we do to identify what world we are living in or how the world is created, it doesn’t matter because our eyes are just to poor to recognize the existence of outside world.
God is now just sitting in the living room without doing a thing to the fishes. He occasionally gives food but there are no means of afterlife. Once you died, then it’s over for you. Of course, this is not a good explanation of how the world is created and you probably will question on how the fishes is created and how God’s world is created.
But it gives you a chance to question God’s power to control the nature of the aquarium’s environment and relate it to the injustice that our world is facing. Because when you think that God’s power is unlimited and He is caring, how come so many people are starving and evil is prevailing? The Fish Tank Paradigm theory answer this question perfectly and creates a punny God which is relatable to the current situation in our world.
This theory of mine then will be perfected with another theory called The Data Manipulation Case which I will elaborate for next time. Until then, the discussion is open for you to debate my theory.
