Modern Physics and Ancient Faith by Stephen M. Barr

By Stephen M. Barr

a large amount of public debate and media print has been dedicated to the “war among technology and religion.” In his obtainable and eminently readable new publication, Stephen M. Barr demonstrates that what's quite at conflict with faith isn't technological know-how itself, yet a philosophy referred to as clinical materialism. smooth Physics and historic religion argues that the good discoveries of recent physics are extra appropriate with the vital teachings of Christianity and Judaism approximately God, the cosmos, and the human soul than with the atheistic standpoint of medical materialism. clinical materialism grew out of clinical discoveries made of the time of Copernicus as much as the start of the 20th century. those discoveries led many considerate humans to the belief that the universe has no reason or function, that the human race is an unintended derivative of blind fabric forces, and that the last word truth is subject itself. Barr contends that the innovative discoveries of the 20th century run counter to this line of notion. He makes use of 5 of those discoveries—the vast Bang idea, unified box theories, anthropic coincidences, Gödel’s Theorem in arithmetic, and quantum theory—to solid severe doubt at the materialist’s view of the realm and to provide larger credence to Judeo-Christian claims approximately God and the universe. Written in transparent language, Barr’s rigorous and reasonable textual content explains glossy physics to basic readers with no oversimplification. utilizing the insights of recent physics, he unearths that glossy medical discoveries and non secular religion are deeply consonant. a person with an curiosity in technology and faith will locate sleek Physics and old religion invaluable.

Dus ik ben (Dutch Edition) by Rob Wijnberg,Stine Jensen

By Rob Wijnberg,Stine Jensen

We gaan er als vanzelfsprekend van uit dat ieder van ons een identiteit heeft, maar als ons op de guy of vrouw af wordt gevraagd wie we dan wel zijn, weten we het opeens niet meer zo goed. We noemen onze naam, maar wat zegt die eigenlijk? We vertellen ons beroep, maar is dat wel zo suitable? We beginnen over onze afkomst, maar doet die er nog toe? Onze identiteit lijkt te bestaan, maar vervluchtigt in een wereld waarin iedereen op net een nickname heeft, een jobhopper is of een wereldburger wil zijn. Dus wordt het tijd voor grondige overpeinzingen van jonge filosofen als Stine Jensen en Rob Wijnberg. We ontlenen ons ik aan allerlei heel concrete dingen: aan ons lichaam, onze liefdes, ons lijden, ons verleden, ons seksuele leven, onze behoefte aan erkenning en de groep waartoe we behoren. En aan grote denkers die de mens geprobeerd hebben te definiëren.

Jensen en Wijnberg blikken terug op die geschiedenis en voegen er hun eigentijdse visie aan toe. Met Dus ik ben leveren ze een beeld van onze identiteit waarmee we waarlijk voort kunnen.
