Only a few chapters in but so far it is not disappointing!! I propose the alternative that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligence, one that is consistent with the Big Bang and Darwinian evolution.
The spectrum that is visible to us is not all that the light contains. How can you fight something with nothing? They have served as foundation for many coveted reputations and many successful academic careers. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Summarizes scientifically a theory I myself have long held, though more disparately, about what lies behind the twin veils of reductionist thought and quantum reality.
Sep 05, Jeff rated it it was ok. The God Theory offers a worldview that incorporates cutting-edge science and ancient mystical knowledge. I was new to the pandeist position and find it compelling as a way to make connections between science and spirituality.
The author was once studying for the priesthood and ended up an astrophysicist. Anyway, while some of this book was This book was written by an astrophysicist with a bit of a background in the seminary. The author was raised in a strict catholic family and even spent a year in the seminary before moving on to study astronomy and astrophysics.
Modern science, especially in the United States, fights a pitched intellectual battle Bernard Haisch worked on a ground-breaking theory that explains inertia in terms of the resistance from the trace energy of the zero-point field. We are way short of the total picture but with our extracts, we construct a visualized material environment. We influence their formations by the waves we personally bernarrd and, at times, actually demonstrate to ourselves hajsch personal influence of sentient beings on material events the experimenter effect.
I have to Google haicsh many ounces are in a quart now. If you are at all concerned about how science’s uncovering of the material world can be integrated with what individuals can intuit from the spiritual world, then this book is for you. There are some dissenting voices, however.
If reading that first line makes your blood boil, and you wonder how the Editor could possibly allow such a sentence to appear in what is, after all, the “Journal of Scientific Exploration,” well, you need to read Bernie Haisch’s excellent book. Overall though, it is a worthy and thought-provoking read. This is a book I can relate to. He is also known for developing a theory which proposes that a hypothetical ” zero-point-field ” may provide a physical explanation for the origin of inertia.
Thw, I found this to be one of the best books I have ever written. Apr 13, Ralph H. Christians and other ths reviewers have criticised the book as they claim Haisch’s theory is incompatible with monotheistic religion. On the other hand, we have traditional religious dogma concerning God that haiech to take into account evolution, a 4.
For some reason, the hypothetical multiverses and hyperdimensions of modern physics, which remain purely theoretical, are accepted by science, while the experiential reports of mystics throughout the ages of transcendent i. It happened that I’ve started reading two books somehow in same time – bot are related to the same topics: So evolution is simply not an issue for me: And you might even do better physics!
I don’t know if my fellow readers ever experienced the moments described by prof. Jan 03, Dayna Reid rated it it was ok.
Review of “The God Theory”
However exceptional human experiences and accounts of mystics throughout the ages do suggest that we live in a purposeful universe. Much discussion of “religion v. A rather short book that combines the authors spiritual beliefs with his theory of the Quantum Zero Point Field.
You will enjoy Bernard Haisch’s occasional dry humor, and I think that you will be struck by the happy reasonableness of his proposal. This book lays an interesting foundation from which to proceed on an inquiry adventure into life itself. As with all of science! Allegories are well chosen and although he has a considerable autobiographical presence it is not too invasive or irrelevant to become a bore,but I could have done without a career outline that seems over emphasise his credibility, which seems to me like someone saying believe me more for what I am rather than what I say, and thus undermines his theories slightly.
Some will think that this kind of work is without merit or even silly. He is very scientific, and I appreciate the way he attacks the reductionist theory, showing the closed-mindedness that is seen with regards to religion, yet posting all sorts of multiverse type ideas is ok bc there is some insane math behind all of it.
Very interesting perspective and hard to disagree with the author and his knowledge.
Bernard Haisch – Wikipedia
Discoveries are made by questioning answers. Science today is based on the premises of materialism the belief that reality consists solely of matter and energyreductionism the idea that complex things can be explained by breaking them down into constituent parts and randomness the conviction that all natural processes follow the laws of chance.
A few years ago I attended, at an American Astronomical Society meeting, an invited lecture on Evolution and the fight against Intelligent Design. February Learn how and when to remove this template message. On the other hand there are the religious adherents.
These theories, called superstring and M-brane theories, are among the most exciting and prestigious frontiers of modern physics. Just getting started, but it is clearly a refreshing work that attempts to discuss both science and theology, in the same breath!!
His “God theory” relies on fine-tuned universe arguments and his ZeroPoint energy theory mixed with arguments from higher consciousness studies and mysticism. The book would have been a lot better without all the sweeping biases, though.
What is the result? I’ll be standing in front of the mirror, brushing my teeth, and I look at myself and suddenly think: So maybe matter resists halsch not because it thr some innate thing called mass as Newton proposed and we all believed, but because the zero-point field exerts a force whenever acceleration takes place.
But that kind of argument is not the essence of Haisch’s case for God.
