I had barely submitted this article for publication when I was made aware of an article that claims researchers at MIT had proved that atoms naturally produce life.
The article claims that the “new theory … proposes that when a group of atoms is exposed for a long time to a source of energy, it […]
By the end of Day Two, the material in the universe had not changed from the beginning of Day Two. The universe was still composed of hydrogen, helium and traces of beryllium and lithium. And there were photons of light.
The only thing that had changed was the concentration of the material in certain places […]
The key to understanding the account of Day Two in Genesis is the word in verse 6 that has been translated as “the firmament.”
Again, for ease of reference, here is the full account of Day Two. References are to the King James Version.
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst […]
We should be clear at the outset what we will be doing in this analysis.
We will not simply be substituting God for those things science cannot yet explain, although it is remarkable that Genesis does in fact make reference to the intervention of God at precisely those moments.
Neither will we claim that only […]
This series of articles will show that the evidence for the existence of God is overwhelming. In legal terms, the evidence proves the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt. They will also show how God chose to reveal Himself to us, and how that enables us to know His Law and His […]
I was delighted to have the opportunity to discuss some of the issues raised in my latest book, A ‘Final Theory’ of God, with Ed Berliner on his Midpoint show on Newsmax. After a brief outline of the arguments presented in the book, […]
In my latest book, “A ‘Final Theory’ of God”, I made these comments in the final chapter regarding my purpose for the book:
“The task of A ‘Final Theory’ of God is to awaken the human spirit to its true moral purpose, and […]
In his excellent book Civilization and Ethics, a penetrating analysis of the various religions and philosophies of the world, Schweitzer says this: “In contrast to these monistic-pantheistic world-views, we find a dualistic outlook on life in the religion of Zarathustra (sixth century B.C. onwards), in that of the Jewish prophets (from the eighth century B.C. […]
Given the volume of condemnation following the massacres in Paris I had decided against making any comment other than short condolences on Twitter and Facebook in which I quoted Winston Churchill: “This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be […]
What we saw in Day Five was the start of the re-establishment of the principles of quantum physics which had been subsumed into the Classical laws in the previous Days.
That statement may require some clarification.
We should recall that the first three Days of Genesis explained how the laws of quantum physics “morphed” into […]
Day Five starts with these words:
“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”[Genesis 1: 20]
The first thing we should consider here is what is meant by “the waters”.
Although Day Four clearly […]
Day Four of the Genesis account of the origins of the universe deals with the creation of our solar system.
Day Four thus starts with this:
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, […]
The first part of Day Three is short, and to the point.
“And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.”
“And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters he called Seas: And […]
Before dealing with Day Two, we should just remind ourselves of the methodology employed by Genesis to describe the events in Day One.
We started with “the heaven and the earth”, which were then subsequently described collectively as “the waters”. The “waters” were then ‘converted’ into “light” when matter and antimatter interacted to create photons […]
It is a generally accepted myth that all creation stories are myths.
And it is a myth eagerly exploited by those who seek to replace the notion of God with their own doctrines and delusions.
This short series of articles will demonstrate that, irrespective of what other creation stories may reveal, in just three chapters […]
A ‘Final Theory’ of God demonstrates that philosophy, science and religion are all saying the same thing, only in different ‘tongues’. But it also shows that they are all seeking the same thing – a supreme law, and a supreme lawmaker.
Science finds a supreme law in […]
By the time I had published my second book in 2007, I had already become weary of the relentless attacks on the notion of God from certain scientists, and an ‘intellectual’ clique of atheists and humanists like Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, and the late Christopher Hitchens.
With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza I decided to re-publish this Open Letter which I wrote during one of the previous Israel/Gaza conflicts. Nothing much changes, it seems. But hopefully this time Israel will deal with the terror-mongers once and for all.
But it seems that John Kerry has either bought into the […]
To understand the compelling appeal of Dave Brat’s message in his primary campaign against Eric Cantor, we need to go back to the founding of America as a nation.
When Thomas Jefferson first saw the Constitution of the United States he was said to have been utterly dismayed. But it was not […]
The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of […]
