The God Theory: Universes, Zero-Point Fields and What’s Behind It All
But Haisch presents some really interesting perspectives bernatd the “big questions” that don’t at all compete with science, but in fact are supported by it. Haisch is certainly a qualified and capable physicist, and his general theme that science and faith are not mutually exclusive was refreshing.
In fact the sense that there is a “you” is just a brain phenomenon. I cannot ignore those experiences. His views on karma and bernarf moral development of individuals through eternity don’t seem to be supported here either. Discoveries are made by questioning answers. Bernard Haisch, an astrophysicist whose work has been reported in this magazine… also trained to be a priest, hasich this Quotes from The God Theory: Reductionists will not be convinced by his straightforward assertions on this topic, and I think there is much more material he could have drawn on such as R.

He also served for ten years as an editor of the Astrophysical Journal. On the other hand, I think we will practice some form of science forever— provided that science can evolve beyond the constraints of its reductionist ideology. For many years now I’ve considered “The Great Debate” to be haisdh or not there is a reality beyond the physical. My only disappointment in the book is that I finished reading it in less than 24 hours.
Thfory this duality arises from in Mr. And how, out of this, does God appear? A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: Haisch was born in Stuttgart, Germany and earned a Ph.
Haisch, too, says his is “a theory that looks promising, not scientific proof.
See the Foundations of Physics paper cited below. I would read this more for the science content than the spiritual content but as an overview of esoteric beliefs it is an excellent introduction. See all titles by this author.

May 30, Catty rated it it was amazing. This widely varied group goes from the strict Biblical set: Consciousness is not a mere epiphenomenon of the brain; it is our connection to God, the source of all consciousness. It is not matter that creates the illusion of consciousness, but consciousness that creates an illusion of matter. Sperry’s work to make a stronger case for this central assertion. In Haisch published a popular book in which he attempted to reconcile modern scientific belief with traditional religious belief.
But to claim that investigation of the physical world rules out inquiry into anything spiritual is both irrational and dogmatic. Even though Haisch is a scientist and has used evidence from quantum mechanicsBig Bang, Newton ‘s laws, inflation theorysuperstrings and many other scientific paradigms in an attempt to help explain his God theory he has also used some dubious and pseudoscientific material in his books such as advocating reincarnation and aliens.
Bernard Haisch is a German-born American astrophysicist who has done research in solar-stellar astrophysics and stochastic electrodynamics. Believing in Einstein, Beernard, and God and Proof of God with Ptolemy TompkinsI befnard on what that purpose might be… what that purpose means for our lives… how it might explain the riddle of evil.
May 09, Rachel Stirrup rated it really liked haissch Shelves: At least Scientologists have the moxie to make shit up to get people to believe. His main research from the mid s until the late s was high energy astrophysics, and specifically the ultraviolet bernzrd X-ray emissions from coronae and flares on the Sun and other late-type stars. The author of this text makes it very clear that there is no place in his professional and personal perhaps life for God.
Some will think that this kind of work is without merit or even silly. His strength is in physics of courseand astrophysics in particular, so I felt his arguments were a bit weak in establishing his case for the centrality of consciousness as more than just a post-hoc emergent property of matter.
Community Thepry bar To do list What is going on? For some reason, the eleven- or twenty-six-dimensional string worlds of scientific theory are plausible, but the fheory realms of mysticism are judged to be mere superstition. Only a few chapters in but so far it is not disappointing!! Interesting perspective but turned off by science-hating I love to philosophize about the intersection between science and religion.
This book lays an interesting foundation from which to proceed on an inquiry adventure into life itself. I have known Haisch for quite some years, because for a while we were both astronomers working in exactly the same field, chromospheric ultraviolet emissions from cool stars.

Sep 05, Jeff rated it it was ok. If it can’t, it doesn’t exist. And, in fact, he acknowledges that most of them don’t. The reductionist view of the world seems indeed too narrow and somehow missing essential points.
It beats hell out of reductionism! 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. It happens to me maybe once or twice a year, and it comes without warning.
We are also both astronomers who have become deeply interested in fundamental physics, and who, despite our limitations, insist on probing physics as best we can.
