The God Theory by Bernard Haisch. San Francisco Surely it is time for all of us scientists to consider returning to God? If reading that first line.

Let me quote a single sentence from his book, which I have chosen because it so perfectly encapsulates my own understanding: To some degree Haisch falls into this trap, particularly in mentioning more than once gd Fred Hoyle prediction of a key nuclear level in carbon through noting his own existence. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Haisch has published more than one hundred research papers on a variety of topics, many in prestigious journals such as NatureHaishcPhysical ReviewAstrophysical Journaland Annalen der Physik.
Dec 12, Lee Harmon rated it it was amazing. These theories, called superstring and M-brane theories, are among the most exciting and prestigious frontiers of modern physics.
The God Theory: Universes, Zero-Point Fields and What’s Behind It All
The author was once studying for the priesthood and ended up an astrophysicist. While this book did strain my year old physics degree at times and thus I would encourage caution to those without a background in physics I did enjoy his reconciliation of faith to science. Your body and mind are merely tools for experiencing physical existence.
Advances are made by answering questions. Where I came from? Haaisch interesting but overall pretty dissatisfying. Haisch has also created a website called UFO Skepticwhich promotes the investigation of the Berjard phenomenon by professional scientists.
His actual theory of god and its connection with physics is beautiful. He mentioned Jesus briefly to show the connection, Jewish mysticism, and other ideas, which are often neglected.
Readable and engaging … ways of reconciling science and religion. Paranormal Pandeism Authors Living people Physicists. The book is well structured, the content, the style are both awesome.
In an extensive series of papers, Haisch and Alfonso Rueda, a physicist currently teaching in the Department of Electrical Engineering, California State UniversityLong Beach, Californiahave developed a controversial hypothesis in the context of stochastic electrodynamics.
Haisch’s early history is that of a Catholic seminarian; mine, that of a child raised in wishy-washy Protestantism, but never taking it seriously. Lists with This Book. A delightful romp through the labyrinths of philosophy, theology, and science.
The spectrum that is visible to us is not all that the light contains. Reductionists will not be convinced by his straightforward assertions on this topic, and Tehory think there is much more material he halsch have drawn on such as R. I was delighted with the author’s magnitude of knowledge, with his narrative skills, especially with capability of timing when and how to interact mainstream reductionist science with his spiritual-sound theory that calls for divine, but not quite in Biblical meaning.
At least Scientologists have the moxie to make shit up to get people to believe. Haisch is an astrophysicist with a discomfort regarding the idea of a meaningless universe, and a gift for explaining scientific theory in simple terms. May 10, Trey Nowell rated it it was amazing. Why none, except spiritually: I found the book thought-provoking and a lot of fun.
And you might even do better physics! Likewise religious practices, in this dialog, are interpreted as mere social and cultural events, as if there were no ontological difference between a Saturday night rave and a Sunday morning church service, both merely serving the roles of community rituals. His strength is in physics of courseand astrophysics in particular, so I felt his arguments were a bit weak in establishing his case for the centrality of consciousness as more than just a post-hoc emergent property of matter.
Like Haisch, I utterly reject Intelligent Design.
Review of “The God Theory”
Apr 13, Ralph H. So maybe matter resists acceleration not because it possesses 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.
May 30, Catty rated it it was amazing. Discoveries are made by questioning answers. This is a book I can relate to.
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. No trivia bernafd quizzes yet. As stated in the book this may seem trivial to a layman but is not supposed to be possible and has all sorts of knock on effects to do with the manipulation of mass and even gravity.
Some have even postulated universes right on top of our own, interpenetrating the space we inhabit, supporting their claims with impressive mathematics that invoke, for example, opposite chirality particles and interactions.
