The science of God


Einstein also said Religion without science is blind. Science without religion is lame.
Richard Dawkins believes science has pretty much disproved God. But he concedes that 40 per cent of US working scientists are religious believers. In 1916 a survey asked biologists, physicists and mathematicians whether they believed in a God who actively commicates with humankind and to whom we may pray in expectation receiving an answer. Anout 40 per cent answered yes.
100 years later another survey asking the same question found the affirmative percentage was identical. There are thousands of scientists who believe faith and science can live side by side without conflict.
Einstein said a legitimate conflict between science and religion cannot exist..
Natural science cannot explain why there is something rather than nothing.
Wittgenstein said the big mystery was not how the world is but that it is..
Stephen Hawking said If the density of the universe one second after the big Bang had been greater by one part if a thousand billion, the universe would have recollapsed after ten years.
On the other hand if the density of the universe had been less by the same amount, the universe would have been essentially empty since it was about ten years old.
Why did our universe have this critical density when it was so unlikely by pure chance?

      • Dom
        Thanks .
        I am only trying to point out how superficially people are judged and classified .
        I was helping a friend fix up a house .
        One day a very old woman was struggling to walk up the road past the house .
        I said to her she must have seen and done quite a lot in her life .
        “Instantly” a smile and a sparkle in her eye appeared .
        Accompanied be a laugh then a comment with firm acknowledgment .
        For that small amount of time she was visible what she was inside .a mid twenty to thirty year old person .
        As for the posting images of a very old EINSTEIN .
        How many people would like that to be remembered like wise??


  1. Natural science cannot explain why there is something rather than nothing .
    What :- Natural science !!!
    What :- Natural science ?????
    So now there is a “”no natural science”””
    How does that work out at CERN


  2. Hawking aslo said:
    “The rate of expansion of the universe would automatically become very close to the critical rate determined by the energy density of the universe. This could then explain why the rate of expansion is still so close to the critical rate, without having to assume that the initial rate of expansion of the universe was very carefully chosen.”


    • The expansion of the universe was mentioned 1400 years ago.

      “The heavens, We have built with power, And We are expanding it.” (Qur’an 51:47)


      • We have built with power.

        Just expanding on that 13.7 billion years ago, in a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a second the world as we know it went from a size smaller than an atom to bigger than a galaxy.

        Within a fraction of a second the big bang creates all the energy that will ever exist. All the energy that will power the stars and fuel everything that will ever live is created then. So when you put petrol to power your car, you are tapping energy that was created in the big bang.


  3. This piece is going on the premise that those who study science loss the driving instinct of “SELF PRESERVATION” .
    And on the premise that if there is any thinking entity that made this universe did so for man to be in and man to exit from .
    A claim of :- It does exist for the purpose of man to be important .
    This claim only proves one thing for sure :- The massive EGO man has that religions are built on


      • Your reply is just another illustration of mans massive EGO .
        There is nothing in my comment implying such position .
        The only thing man can claim as man made is the many versions of entities that of course have man at the pinnacle of creations .


  4. “Have not “those who disbelieve” known that heavens and earth were of one piece, We parted them and, We made every living thing of water, will they not then believe?” (Qur’an 21:30)

    The big bang.

    78% of a baby is water. 60% of an adult is water.


  5. I am agnostic about the density of the universe being planned, though admit it seems likely. I am not a believer that the universe was created solely for mankind. But we are here and we are part of the spirit and intelligence of the universe, and need to find and fulfill our purpose to the best of our poor understanding. We can have faith in that, without understanding mechanisms.

    If each generation encourages their children to be kind and trustworthy, we head towards, not just a physical evolution, but an evolution of spirit.

    Science and religion go hand in h nand, supporting each other, but not needing each other, in my view.


    • With you again Strewth. It’s odd, there are those of us that call what we have Faith, yet, we feel compelled to present evidence to justify our beliefs.
