I believe wholeheartedly in The Big Bang and evolution, but I also believe in some sort of divine “creator” that experimented with creation as a way of entertaining “him” self something had to create the matter of The Big Bang and be the catalyst for its sudden expansion.

Universes, Zero-point Fields, And What’s Behind It All he rejected theism and atheism and put forward his theory of pandeismthe belief that God became the universe. God cannot dislike, and certainly cannot hate, anything that we do or are. Haisch has published more than theort hundred research papers on a variety of topics, many in prestigious journals such as NatureSciencePhysical ReviewAstrophysical Journaland Annalen der Physik.

Review of “The God Theory”
On the one hand, we have traditional science, based on the premises of materialism, reductionism, and randomness, with a belief that reality consists solely of matter and energy, that everything can be measured in the laboratory or observed by a telescope. The book definitely had some interesting stuff in it, but I felt more like this was a book about a man who was raised Christian and went to seminary school for a year trying to justify all the contradictions between what religion teaches and what science has discovered.
Near-d The reductionist view of the world seems indeed too narrow and somehow missing essential points. So what is the practical effect? I was reading Douglas E. This was an interesting if not entirely fulfilling read, I know the clue is in the title but this really is only a theory. 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.
Discoveries are made by questioning answers. David Gross rightly points out that quantum chromodynamics is fixed, complete, and not tunable, and it just so happens that the level is there, Hoyle or no Hoyle. The Intro starts with: He is most well known for his “God theory” which is a form of pandeism. The polarity that needs to drive a dynamics is in his human nature deeply inherited – the duality that is scary, but beautiful, weird, but gorgeous in same time.
Bernie Haisch is an astronomer who has undergone such an awakening, and his thoughtful book can help you make that transition, if you have not done so already.
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. How can you fight something with nothing? And, in fact, he acknowledges that most of them don’t. In this book he attempts to rectify the pull of his belief in a higher power and an intelligent designer of the universe with the mainstream view of the physics community that all life in the universe is a quirk of fate.
They have served as foundation for many coveted reputations and many successful academic careers. 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. A few representative publications regarding the proposed physical origin of inertia as an electromagnetic drag force and hypothetical spacecraft propulsion schemes:.
I would read this mo A rather short book that combines the authors spiritual beliefs with his theory of the Quantum Zero Point Field. Only a few chapters in but so far it is not disappointing!!
I am not an astrophysicist, or even an accomplished scientist of any kind; but I have always believed that the most accurate theory for our place in the universe lies somewhere between the various flavors of the Bible and modern science. 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.
Is there an intelligence behind the origin of the Universe? It beats hell out of reductionism! He is very scientific, and I appreciate the way theoy attacks the reductionist theory, showing the closed-mindedness that is seen with reg Personally, I found this to be one of the best books I have ever written.
His main research from the mid s until the late s was high energy astrophysics, and specifically the ultraviolet and X-ray emissions from coronae and flares on the Sun and other late-type stars. However, it is known thd that without the zero point field the spin state of all matter would collapse inward almost instantaneously. If you choose to praise and worship We are God.
Ultimately it is consciousness that creates matter and not vice versa. What Thhe cannot accept is fundamentalism in the guise of scientific inquiry. But the human misuse of religions and the existence of God are very different matters. On the other hand, rejecting anything pejoratively called supernatural tje the name of science is equally flawed theoru irrational. I recall wondering myself whether, perhaps, on our first appearance as homo sapiens, we were not all Ramanujans- cum -Mozarts, and that evolution had damped this in most of us for the survival of the species.
But I am coming to think that this is a mistake; that we scientists should be in the lead of the battle to reclaim God from the wrong-headed. Again, this is established physicsnot philosophy.
If it can’t, it doesn’t exist. Are you one of them? His God Theory states, “the creation of the real the manifest involves subtraction from the infinite potential. Well, the only mind I know ths is my own. May 10, Trey Nowell rated it it was amazing.
Ultimately, your individual consciousness will be fully reunited with the infinite consciousness of God; this can be characterized as heaven. He mentioned Jesus briefly to show the connection, Jewish mysticism, and other ideas, which are often neglected.
A worthwhile contribution to the scientific-spiritual synthesis, adding to the likes of Paul Davies, John Polkinghorne and Russell Stannard. Tue and other religious reviewers have criticised the book as they haishc Haisch’s theory is incompatible with monotheistic religion. His “God theory” relies on fine-tuned universe arguments and his ZeroPoint energy theory mixed with arguments from higher consciousness studies and mysticism. A little further he writes: Bernard Haisch is a German -born American astrophysicist and author.
