An explanation of how recent discoveries of the new physics are revolutionizing our view of the world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion


How did the world begin and how will it end? These questions are not new; what is new, Paul Davies argues, is that science may now be on the verge of answering them. Here he explains, in jargon-free language, how the recent far-reaching discoveries of the new physics are revolutionizing our view of the world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion. Science, Davies believes, has come of age, and can now offer a surer path to God than can religion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Looking for God (and not through a telescope) 29. Dezember 2005
Paul Davies, a professor of theoretical physics, has written extensively both for the scientific and the popular audiences on topics of current interest in physics and cosmology. In particular, he concentrates on issues to do with quantum theories, relativity and beginning/end of the universe issues.
In his book 'God and the New Physics', Davies continues a new tradition in which physicists particularly and scientists more generally write about their fields in philosophical, nearly theological terms discussing first causes, ultimate meanings, and the place of God and humanity in the overall scheme of the universe. Our understanding of the universe has changed dramatically in the last century, having been a fairly stable image for the past several hundred years. This has understandably made the philosophic and anthropomorphic considerations of the universe change dramatically as well.
'Science and religion represent two great systems of human thought. For the majority of people on our planet, religion is the predominant influence over the conduct of their affairs. When science impinges on their lives, it does so not at the intellectual level, but practically, through technology.'
Davies explores first the idea of genesis of the universe, exploring the intricacies of the big bang theory. This is a theory that has difficulties philosophically, that a purely scientific approach does not have an answer to, not least of which because it isn't asking the same question. Essentially, according to the big bang theory, the universe began as a singularity, essentially an infinitely small point from which all space and time (and all that is in it) emerged in an explosion-like phenomenon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely Profound and Thought Provoking Book 12. Januar 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read a great many popular books on physics and most of them cover
largely the same ground. This book deals with issues so fundamental and profound that many times only kids ever dare ask them. If you do read this
book you may never forget the experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can we infer the existence of God from science? 9. Juli 2012
Von Dr. H. A. Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
God and the New Physics by Paul Davies, Dent 1983, Penguin 1990, 272 ff.

Though the particle physics in this book is somewhat dated by now (2010), I revisited this book in view of more recent titles on the same theme by the same author, who was Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne when this book was written and is now at Arizona State University This was one of the first of Davies' titles on this theme and I wanted to see if his world-view had changed: essentially, I don't think it has.

The idea that the grandeur of the natural world, or that there is a world for us to live in at all, implies the existence of a creator God has been used by theologians for at least two millennia as the so-called Cosmological and Design Arguments, referred to by Davies in Chapter 12, Accident or Design? Newton and many other 17th century scientists as well as some contemporary theologians like John Polkinghorne and Richard Swinburne have used similar arguments to infer the existence of God from the discoveries of science about the complex intricacies of the natural world.

As recipient of the Templeton Prize in 1995, Davies is not the only physicist by any means to see parallels between the symmetry of the cosmic dance of fundamental particles and their energies and the creative continuum of energy and consciousness postulated by eastern, and increasingly by western mystics. Theists may well interpret this all-pervading cosmic spirit as God or Infinite Mind while scientists committed only to rationalism clearly will not. Davies discusses many aspects of the divine in this book - as creator and designer, as shaper of the laws of nature, as mind or consciousness, and in many other capacities.

This book gives a lucid overview of this area of overlap between physics, philosophy, psychology and religion and Davies does a sound job of a cohesive if sometimes controversial presentation of such a wide subject area. There are chapters on such diverse subjects as Genesis, Mind and Soul, The Self, Free Will, Time, Black Holes and Miracles! If you want to see how all these different subjects can be inter-related, this is an excellent place to start. You should not be put off by the fact that the book was written nearly three decades ago. There are several pages of Notes and References, a Bibliography for further reading, and an Index.
