The verifiable universal religion through verifiable science as the universal language is applicable in any civilizations in our universe, and is inclusive to connect the major religions. Einstein said, “Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” By the universal religion through science, the blind (religion) receive sight; the lame (science) walk. The good news is proclaimed to the universe.. The universal religion includes two parts. (1) The Sacred Cosmology explained by the unified theory of physics consists of the Hindu-Buddha Cosmology and the Genesis Cosmology, and (2) the Sacred Society explained by the unified theory of human society consists of the three-branch way from Daoism and the kingdom of God from Christianity.
(1) The unified theory of physics is derived from the zero-energy universe and the space-object structures. The space structure includes attachment space and detachment space. The object structure consists of 11D (dimensional) membrane, 10D string, variable D particle, and empty object. Different universes in different stages are the different expressions of the space-object structures. For our universe, the zero-energy universe produced the symmetrical positive-energy and negative-energy 11D membrane dual universe, followed by the 10D string dual universe, then by the 10D particle dual universe, and then by the asymmetrical dual current universe of the 4D light universe of baryonic matter-dark matter and the variable D dark universe of dark energy without massless particle (light). This is the four-stage cyclic cosmology with the zero-energy universe. The further symmetry breaking in the current universe differentiated baryon matter with massless electromagnetism and dark matter without massless electromagnetism. The inhomogeneous structures, such as galaxy, are derived from the increasing incompatibility between baryonic matter and dark matter, like the inhomogeneous emulsion formed by the incompatible oil and water. The cosmology based on the unified theory of physics is comparable to the Sacred Cosmology. Our four-stage cyclic cosmology and zero-energy universe correspond to the four-Yuga Hindu cosmic cycle and the Buddha Sunyata (zero) Yuga. The separation of the light universe and dark universe corresponds to the Genesis first day creation to separate light and darkness. The separation of baryonic matter and dark matter corresponds to the Genesis second day creation to separate of waters from above and below the expanse. (2) The origin of the unified theory of human society is the three-level natural selection of individual, relational, and group selections corresponding to yang, yin, and harmony for masculine individualistic achievement, feminine collectivistic relation, and harmonious cooperation, respectively from the three-branch way (三支道) of Daoism. Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within you. The kingdom of God is within the harmonious society and social life (interaction). The harmonious society exists only in humans and few social insects. The prehistoric hunter-gatherer society was the harmonious society. In the Bible, the human in the image of God is the human of the harmonious social life different from all other animals. Starting from the Neolithic Revolution, the inevitably large civilized social group destroyed the prehistoric harmonious small social group as the prehistoric kingdom of God, resulting in the fall in the Garden of Eden. Jesus Christ initiated the early kingdom of God that allowed the civilized people to return to the harmonious social life and society. In the postmodern world, the postmodern kingdom of God becomes the harmonious society of God in the three-branch Unified Society.

The evolution of human religion can be divided into four generations starting from
the prehistoric formal religion to the postmodern religion. The four-generation religion
from the prehistoric society to the postmodern society consists of the band religion, the tribal
religion, the global religion, and the universal religion for egalitarian immanent theism, elite
revealed theism, common rational theism, and universal scientific theism, respectively. The
change in human social structure causes the change in the generation of religion. The
breakdown of the old social structure causes the demise of the old generation religion, and
the new generation religion is adaptable to the new social structure. The change in the social
structure is typically derived from the technological revolution which occurs rapidly, so the
change in the social structure is also fairly rapid. Consequently, the evolution of human
religion by the change of social structure is punctuated equilibrium rather than smooth
gradual process. Punctuated equilibrium makes one drastic change, and then remains fairly
unchanged for a long time until the next drastic change.
The social structure of the prehistoric society before the formal religion is the band
(small social group) society that is the egalitarian small group society as described later in
Chapter 5. The first prehistoric religious-social-technological revolution is the Upper
Paleolithic Revolution. Similarly to the Industrial and Neolithic Revolutions, the Upper
Paleolithic Revolution represents a short time span when numerous inventions appeared and
cultural changes occurred. The Upper Paleolithic period extended from about 40,000 to
between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago.
The reason for the Revolution was the potential breakdown of human society due the
harsh fluctuating climates. The increasing sharing of technology and religion among small
social groups allowed them to work together to overcome such harsh fluctuating climates.
The social structure changed from the band society to the religious band society where many
small social groups were bonded by the formal religion, resulting in the rapid development
of shared technology and religion. The religion was the first generation religion as the band
religion. The believers were common people in the religious band society.
The band religion was the Symbolic Religion in terms of female figurines and cave
painting, which quickly spread among large region. The band religion is egalitarian
immanent theism. Egalitarian theism has no religious hierarchy. The method of the band
religion was immanent symbol. At the time of the Upper Paleolithic Period, the
supernatural was immanent supernatural that appeared everywhere as a part of all objects in
the world. Anything unexplained or unusual was attributed to the supernatural. The society
was egalitarian, so there was no authoritative transcendental gods to be worshiped.
Everyone and everything was equally an avatar, the incarnation of the supernatural. Such
concept of immanent supernatural was prevalent. The symbols for the immanent
supernatural were typically the exaggerated and distorted representation of the real natural
objects to represent the unexplained and unusual characteristics of the immanent
supernatural, so the symbols represented partly the natural and partly the supernatural.
(Symbol is the result of the exaggeration of a specific feature of a real object.) Such
symbols brought the immanent supernatural to help people. They did not worship such
symbols, because there was no concept of worshipping anything authoritative. The
symbols were female figurine and cave painting.

The first generation religion, egalitarian immanent theism, remained relatively
unchanged until the next technological revolution, the Neolithic Revolution. The Neolithic
Revolution as the transition from nomadic hunting and gathering to the cultivated crops
and domesticated animals for their subsistence was first adopted by various independent
prehistoric human societies about 10,000 years ago. The first society resulted from the
Neolithic Revolution is the horticultural-pastoral society. Horticulture is agriculture
before the invention of the plow. The increase in population in the horticultural society
forced people to use more productive method for the cultivation of crops. The method
involved plow and draft animals, resulting in the agricultural-nomad society. Plowing
maintained the fertility of the soil by turning topsoil. Agriculture could support
population increases by more intensive use of the same piece of land. Agriculture could
support a much larger population than horticulture. Farmers grew crops for sale rather
than crops grown only for household use. Market became an important part of society.
Surplus food production brought about non-food-producing professionals, such as
religious or ruling elites. Large cities emerged. It is the start of civilization whose
original meaning relates to being a citizen, who is governed by the law of one’s city,
town or community.

The social structure changed from the religious band society to the religious tribal
society that is the hierarchical religious tribal large-group society. The result is the
second generation religion, the tribal religion as elite revealed theism. The believers in
elite revealed theism were ruling elites, including priests and political leaders. The
method is God’s revelation in terms of ritual, myth, and the way of ruling. Ritual is an
established or prescribed procedure connecting tribal people with God. Myth is a
traditional or legendary story connecting tribal people with God. The way of ruling
relates to the specific way of governing including benevolence, justice, morality, law, and
power structure.

Common people could have their folk religions as long as they did not
outlandishly contradict elite revealed theism. Elite revealed theism was the religion for
ruling elites in Israel before the fall of Jerusalem (the 6th

century BC), in India before the

social breakdown at the beginning of the Upanishads (the 6th

century BC), in China

before the social breakdown of Zhou dynasty (the 7th

century BC), and in Athens Greece

before the frequent wars (the 5th

century BC). During the tribal religion, the tribal and
territorial borderlines changed, but their borderlines were fairly distinct. Ruling elites
changed, but they could still maintain social coherence within distinct tribal and
territorial borderlines.

Increasing internal and external large-scale warfare gradually destroyed
traditional tribal and territorial borderlines. The emergence of the Iron Age finally
shifted the power structure irreversibly that made traditional tribal and territorial
borderline indistinct. The Iron Age is the final technological and cultural stage in the
Stone–Bronze–Iron-Age sequence. The date of the full Iron Age varied geographically,
beginning in the Middle East and southeastern Europe about 1200 BC but in China not
until about 600 BC. Without distinct tribal and territorial borderlines, the ruling elites
could no longer keep social coherence, resulting in the collapse of elite revealed theism.
The social structure changed from the religious tribal society to the religious global
society without distinct permanent tribal and territorial borderlines. The responsibility to
keep social coherence shifted from ruling elites to common people. The folk religion for

7

common people was too primitive to keep social coherence. The prophets in and outside of
Israel and the philosophers in China, India, and Greece were familiar with elite revealed
theism. They converted ritual, myth, and the way of ruling in elite revealed theism into the
rational way of social life (social interaction) for common people. The result was common
rational theism as the third generation religion, the global religion. The believers are
common people in the religious global society. The method is the rational way of social life.
The prophets in and outside of Israel shifted the responsibility to continue Judaism
from ruling elites to common people who became the “remnants” after the fall of Jerusalem.
They wanted common people to live in the rational moral large-group way of social life as
expressed in moral monotheism. The conspicuous consequence of moral monotheism was
the disappearance of the folk religion as polytheism for common people after the “remnants”
returned to Jerusalem. Archeologists found many idols in the houses of Israelites before the
fall of Jerusalem, and they found no idols in the houses after the return. All common people
followed common rational theism as moral monotheism that has kept social coherence for
Jews for thousands of years.

In China, Confucius (551BC to 479BC) converted basically religious rituals and
religious terms into the proprieties and the definitions for human relationship in the rational
moral large-group way of social life for common people. Laozi (possibly 571BC to 471BC)
moved elite revealed theism back to the prehistoric natural society in the rational
harmonious small-group way of social life for common people. In India, Buddha (563BC to
483BC) converted the religious cyclic life and liberation into the psychological cyclic life
and liberation in the rational harmonious small-group way of life. Hinduism added the
reincarnation to unify all gods and enforce morality in the rational moral large-group way of
life, and also added yoga for the rational harmonious small-group way of life. In Greece,
the philosophers, such as Socrates (470BC to 399BC), Plato, and Aristotle, converted
individualistic Greek mythology into the rational individualistic large-group way of social
life. Each individual is in pursuit of individualistic achievement in science, mathematics,
philosophy, and art. Later, Jesus (5BC to. 30AD) converted the nation of Israel into the
kingdom of God as the rational harmonious small-group way of social life for common
people. Muhammad (570AD to 632AD) initiated the rational moral large-group way of
social life for common people.

As discussed in details later, we are currently in the third generation religion
consisting of three different types of social life: the collectivistic (moral) large-group way of
social life for collectivistic relation (morality), the individualistic large-group way of social
life for individualistic achievement, and the harmonious small-group way of social life for
harmonious cooperation. The collectivistic social life religion includes Judaism, Hinduism,
Confucianism, and Islam. The individualistic social life religion includes the Greek
individualism philosophy. The harmonious social life religion includes Daoism, Buddhism,
and Christianity.

In the current postmodern world, the rapid development of science and global
communication in the postmodern world push the religion in the brink of the fourth
generation religion: the universal religion as universal scientific theism. The society for
universal scientific theism is the religious universal society greater than the religious global
society on earth. The believers are the all human-like universal humanity in the universe.
The method is the God’s universal scientific revelation for our universe and society.
The brief description of the four-generation religion is as follows.

Science is the universal language for all observable phenomena, and can be used to
unify the observable phenomena in all religions. Science is based on rationalism and
empiricism. Rationalism is the system of knowledge based on self-evident propositions and
the logical consequences of propositions. Empiricism is based on observable phenomena.
A viable scientific model based on rationalism and empiricism is verifiable.
A self-evidence proposition of the God’s universal scientific revelation is that the
revelations for our universe and society has been revealed symbolically to humans as the
verifiable universal religion that is applicable in any high civilizations in our universe,
and is inclusive to connect the major religions. The God’s scientific revelations for our
universe is shown in the Sacred Cosmology consisting of the Hindu-Buddha Cosmology
and the Genesis Cosmology. The Sacred Cosmology can be explained by the unified
theory of physics that unifies all observable phenomena in our universe. The Sacred
Cosmology is verifiable. The God’s scientific revelation for our society is the Sacred
Society explained by the unified theory of human society. The Sacred Society consists of
the three-branch way from Daoism and the kingdom of God from Christianity. The
Sacred Society is verifiable. The following describes briefly the Sacred Cosmology and
the Sacred Society as Part 1 and Part 2, respectively, in this paper.

Sacred Cosmology: the unified theory of physics (Part 1)

The Sacred Cosmology explained by the unified theory of physics consists of the
Hindu-Buddha Cosmology and the Genesis Cosmology. The unified theory of physics is
derived from the zero-energy universe and the space-object structures. The space structure
includes attachment space and detachment space. The object structure consists of 11D
(dimensional) membrane, 10D string, variable D particle, and empty object. Different
universes in different developmental stages are the different expressions of the space-object
structures. For our universe, the zero-energy universe produced the symmetrical positive-
energy and negative-energy 11D membrane dual universe, followed by the 10D string dual
universe, then by the 10D particle dual universe, and then by the asymmetrical dual current
universe of the 4D light universe of baryonic matter-dark matter and the variable D dark
universe of dark energy without massless particle (light). This is the four-stage cyclic
cosmology with the zero-energy universe. The further symmetry breaking in the current
universe differentiated baryon matter with massless electromagnetism and dark matter
without massless electromagnetism. The inhomogeneous structures, such as galaxy, are
derived from the increasing incompatibility between baryonic matter and dark matter, like

9

the inhomogeneous emulsion formed by the incompatibility between oil and water. The
cosmology based on the unified theory of physics is comparable to the Sacred Cosmology.
Our four-stage cyclic cosmology corresponds to the four-Yuga Hindu cosmic cycle (Satya,
Tret, Dwapara, and Kali). The zero-energy universe in cosmology corresponds to the
Sunyata (zero) Yuga in the Hindu-Buddha Cosmology. The separation of the light universe
and dark universe corresponds to the Genesis first day creation to separate light and
darkness. The separation of baryonic matter and dark matter corresponds to the Genesis
second day creation to separate of waters from above and below the expanse.

The Sacred Society: the unified theory of human society (Part 2)

The Sacred Society explained by the unified theory of human society consists of
the three-branch way from Daoism and the kingdom of God from Christianity. The
origin of the unified theory of human society is the three-level natural selection of
individual, relational, and group selections corresponding to yang, yin, and harmony for
masculine individualistic achievement, feminine collectivistic relation, and harmonious
cooperation, respectively from the three-branch way (三支道) of Daoism. Jesus said that
the kingdom of God is within you. The kingdom of God is within the harmonious society
and social life (interaction). The harmonious society exists only in humans and few
social insects. The prehistoric hunter-gatherer society was the harmonious society. In
the Bible, the human in the image of God is the human of the harmonious social life
different from all other animals. The human harmonious social life was evolved to adapt
to the small human social group. Starting from the Neolithic Revolution, the inevitably
large civilized social group destroyed the prehistoric harmonious small social group as
the prehistoric kingdom of God, resulting in the fall in the Garden of Eden. Jesus Christ
initiated the early kingdom of God that allowed the civilized people to return to the
harmonious social life and society. In the postmodern world, the postmodern kingdom of
God becomes the harmonious society of God in the three-branch Unified Society.

science, the blind (religion) receive sight; the lame (science) walk. The good news is
proclaimed to the universe.
