For the readers of The Language of God, another instant classic from "a sophisticated and original scholar" (Kirkus Reviews) that disputes the idea that science is contrary to religion. In The Science of God, distinguished physicist and Biblical scholar Gerald L. Schroeder demonstrates the surprising parallels between a variety of Biblical teachings and the findings of biochemists, paleontologists, astrophysicists, and quantum physicists. In a brilliant and wide-ranging discussion of key topics that have divided science and religion—free will, the development of the universe, the origin of life, and the origin of man—Schroeder argues that the latest science and a close reading of the Bible are not just compatible but interdependent. This timely reissue of The Science of God features a brand-new preface by Schroeder and a compelling appendix that addresses the highly publicized experiment in 2008 in which scientists attempted to re-create the chemical composition of the cosmos immediately after the Big Bang. It also details Schroeder’s lucid explanations of complex scientific and religious concepts, such as the theory of relativity, the passage of time, and the definitions of crucial Hebrew words in the Bible. Religious skeptics, Biblical literalists, scientists, students, and physicists alike will be riveted by Schroeder’s remarkable contribution to the raging debate between science and religion.

A NASA rocket scientist uses quantum physics to find God in science. Finding God in Science recounts the compelling peaks and valleys of one rocket scientist's career and his quest to know the Creator of the universe in the face of postmodern thought and atheistic claims. Finding God in Science is like A Brief History Of Time meets The Greatest Story Ever Told revealing the consistency of the Bible and science in plain language. This is the first book to demonstrate that Jesus Christ's earthly message and mission parallel the natural laws of the universe, revealing a Divine premeditation. Finding God in Science even sheds new light on the mystery of why Christ had to die to save us from our sins, and why we have to die to finally realize eternal life. The scientific implications in Finding God in Science illustrate the nature of truth, what it means to really know God and communicate with Him, the indwelling of the Spirit, and how Jesus Christ could be both God and man. And they back the security of our salvation. As incredible as it may sound, these claims are based on quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, and non-locality (Einstein's spooky action at a distance), which have a deep and unexpected relevance to Christianity. In fact, the principles of quantum entanglement, and the teleportation of information, appear to form the physical basis of human consciousness and the core tenets of Christianity. The gospel is presented in a new language that has a direct correspondence with the most fundamental principles of physics. Finding God in Science will challenge your thinking, touch your soul and deepen your faith.

An Elijah Muhammad Speech During The Second Day of The Nation of Islam Saviour's Day Convention in 1967. It aims chiefly at the politically shallow 60's version of Black power by introducing "Real Black Power" as it relates to how God and all life originally came out of total black space. A profound example of Elijah Muhammad's comprehensive lecture is demonstrated when he asked, "If the scripture said that in the beginning God said 'Let there be light, ' then He couldn't have been in the light when he said that. He Himself had to have come from Blackness; thus ORIGINAL BLACK POWER!

Does God exist? Did a Master Designer create our universe, or did life spontaneously evolve? Can science retain objectivity in the search for truth while allowing for the possibility that God exists? Does it make any difference? Ariel A. Roth, scientist and Christian believer, examines key issues related to the God question: * the intricate organization of matter in the universe * the precision of the forces of physics * the complexity of the eye and the brain * the elaborate genetic code * the disparity between the fossil record and the vast amount of time necessary for evolution Faced with so much evidence that seems to require a God in order to explain what we find in nature, why does the scientific community remain silent about God? Hypotheses and speculations that attempt to fit data into a predetermined conclusion abound. What overriding influence prevents scientists from following the data of nature wherever it may lead?

From Science to God offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness — how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. From Science to God is as much a personal story of an open-minded skeptic as it is a tour de force of scientific and religious paradigm shifts. Russell takes us from Galileo’s den to the lecture halls of Cambridge where he studied with Stephen Hawking. “If you had asked me then if there was a God,” says the best-selling author of his scientific beginnings, “I would have pointed to mathematics.” But no matter what empirical truths science offered Russell, one thorny question remained: How can something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter?

A God That Could Be Real

A paradigm-shifting blend of science, religion, and philosophy for agnostic, spiritual-but-not-religious, and scientifically minded readers Many people are fed up with the way traditional religion alienates them: too easily it can perpetuate conflict, vilify science, and undermine reason. Nancy Abrams, a philosopher of science, lawyer, and lifelong atheist, is among them. And yet, when she turned to the recovery community to face a personal struggle, she found that imagining a higher power gave her a new freedom. Intellectually, this was quite surprising. Meanwhile her husband, famed astrophysicist Joel Primack, was helping create a new theory of the universe based on dark matter and dark energy, and Abrams was collaborating with him on two books that put the new scientific picture into a social and political context. She wondered, “Could anything actually exist in this strange new universe that is worthy of the name ‘God?’” In A God That Could Be Real, Abrams explores a radically new way of thinking about God. She dismantles several common assumptions about God and shows why an omniscient, omnipotent God that created the universe and plans what happens is incompatible with science—but that this doesn’t preclude a God that can comfort and empower us. Moving away from traditional arguments for God, Abrams finds something worthy of the name “God” in the new science of emergence: just as a complex ant hill emerges from the collective behavior of individually clueless ants, and just as the global economy emerges from the interactions of billions of individuals’ choices, God, she argues, is an “emergent phenomenon” that arises from the staggering complexity of humanity’s collective aspirations and is in dialogue with every individual. This God did not create the universe—it created the meaning of the universe. It’s not universal—it’s planetary. It can’t change the world, but it helps us change the world. A God that could be real, Abrams shows us, is what humanity needs to inspire us to collectively cooperate to protect our warming planet and create a long-term civilization.

Without God, how can we have hope or make sense of such a broken world? Skeptics believe we don't need God to understand reality, and that science and reason hold the keys to building a better world. Faith is blind, and there is no credible evidence for God's existence--especially the God of the Bible. Science and religious belief are incompatible, and God is no longer relevant to our modern world.By engaging with popular atheists and skeptics, both new and old, as well as many of Christianity's most brilliant writers, pastor and author Zachary Broom writes of how God is just as relevant to understanding the world as He's ever been. Not only is there powerful evidence for God's existence, but without Him, we cannot make sense of human experience.If there is no God, most of what we intuitively believe about reality cannot be trusted, as God is the source of all meaning, rationality, truth, beauty, and goodness. Instead of setting out to "prove" God's existence, Broom carefully and seriously engages skeptic's doubts, relying on philosophy, science, literature, reasoning, and real-life conversations, challenging readers to believe the better worldview--the worldview that best explains reality as we know it.

SCIENTIFIC THEORY OF GOD Today's world is filled with doubt or even total disbelief that God really exists. Scientists say there is no scientific evidence of a Creator, and many of us are trying to cope with what we think is a meaningless existence. We have learned to trust science, but we don't want this to be all there is, so we find hope in our religious faith. However, religion is the worship of God-not scientific proof of God-so we are caught between two very conflicting worldviews... ...and our doubts about God won't go away. What isn't realized is that-contrary to what we are taught in school-science actually does prove God's existence. Scientific Theory of God breaks down the walls between science and faith and reveals an understanding of God based on scientific proof. For the most part, the twenty-first century scientific community bases their foundation upon their claim that the universe came from nothing and that it mysteriously-and instantly-came into existence. This process is less formally known as the Big Bang theory. Most mainstream scientists would have you believe that you are an accident of nature lost in time and place without help and...without hope-purposeless! Scientific Theory of God throws off the scientific veil of confusion by researching some of the greatest minds in physics, including the theories of Sir Issac Newton, to uncover the truth: You are not an accident. You are not insignificant. You have an ultimate purpose designed just for you. Take an impactful and revolutionary look at the many convincing proofs of God's existence. Now, it is time to discover that each person is at the center of a divine heart-a dynamic and personable God. A higher Being who has not only designed the universe, but also oversees a specific reality created for each individual. Scientific Theory of God delves into the difficult questions that have been pondered by mankind for centuries regarding the universe, humanity's purpose, and God's existence. Learn how the answer has been under scientist's noses for hundreds of years, as this work delivers the scientific proofs to revolutionize the concepts of the universe, man's relationship to God, and his journeys through this life and into the next. This book has the power to change your life.

"Throughout history, scientific discovery has interacted with religious belief, creating comment, controversy, and sometimes violent dispute. In this enlightening and accessible volume, distinguished historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Larson joins forces with Michael Ruse, philosopher of science and Gifford Lecturer, to offer distinctive perspectives on the sometimes contentious, sometimes conciliatory, and always complex relationship between science and religion. The authors explore how scientists, philosophers, and theologians through time approached vitally important topics, including cosmology, geology, evolution, genetics, neurobiology, gender, and the environment. Broaching their subjects from both historical and philosophical perspectives and taking a global, cross-cultural approach, Larson and Ruse avoid rancor and polemic as they address many of the core issues currently under debate by the adherents of science and the advocates of faith. In so doing, they shed new light on the richly diverse field of ideas at the crossroads where science meets spiritual belief"--Jacket.

Throughout history, arguments for and against the existence of God have been largely confined to philosophy and theology, while science has sat on the sidelines. Despite the fact that science has revolutionized every aspect of human life and greatly clarified our understanding of the world, somehow the notion has arisen that it has nothing to say about the possibility of a supreme being, which much of humanity worships as the source of all reality. This book contends that, if God exists, some evidence for this existence should be detectable by scientific means, especially considering the central role that God is alleged to play in the operation of the universe and the lives of humans. Treating the traditional God concept, as conventionally presented in the Judeo-Christian and Islamic traditions, like any other scientific hypothesis, physicist Stenger examines all of the claims made for God's existence. He considers the latest Intelligent Design arguments as evidence of God's influence in biology. He looks at human behavior for evidence of immaterial souls and the possible effects of prayer. He discusses the findings of physics and astronomy in weighing the suggestions that the universe is the work of a creator and that humans are God's special creation. After evaluating all the scientific evidence, Stenger concludes that beyond a reasonable doubt the universe and life appear exactly as we might expect if there were no God. This paperback edition of the New York Times bestselling hardcover edition contains a new foreword by Christopher Hitchens and a postscript by the author in which he responds to reviewers' criticisms of the original edition.

The phenomenon that Einstein thought too spooky and strange to be true What is entanglement? It's a connection between quantum particles, the building blocks of the universe. Once two particles are entangled, a change to one of them is reflected---instantly---in the other, be they in the same lab or light-years apart. So counterintuitive is this phenomenon and its implications that Einstein himself called it “spooky” and thought that it would lead to the downfall of quantum theory. Yet scientists have since discovered that quantum entanglement, the “God Effect,” was one of Einstein’s few---and perhaps one of his greatest---mistakes. What does it mean? The possibilities offered by a fuller understanding of the nature of entanglement read like something out of science fiction: communications devices that could span the stars, codes that cannot be broken, computers that dwarf today's machines in speed and power, teleportation, and more. In The God Effect, veteran science writer Brian Clegg has written an exceptionally readable and fascinating (and equation-free) account of entanglement, its history, and its application. Fans of Brian Greene and Amir Aczel and those interested in the marvelous possibilities coming down the quantum physics road will find much to marvel, illuminate, and delight.
