** On Theory of Chaos**

The Theory of Chaos is a mathematical theory capable of eluding even the deterministic, finite state automata – like predictions of Newtonian physics.

In the 1960’s MIT professor Edward Lorenz created equations for air convection which he then programmed into a computer. He concluded that: “the extreme sensitivity to initial conditions (mean) that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings over the Amazon could influence the weather in China. This conclusion later found amenable audiences and applications in the field of mathematics as *deterministic chaos.*

In the appearance of chaos, a pattern can be found. An ineludible question then follows: is pattern the true nature of reality? If so, pattern speaks of design. It follows then that design speaks of intentionality; intentionality speaks of intelligence, and intelligence speaks of mind.

It is only in a universe of order that rational exploration, discovery and scientific research would be possible; therefore, the best explanation for the orderliness of the universe with the appearance of disorder (as proposed in Chaos Theory) is an intelligent agent.
