Do physicists believe in God?

I'm going to write my review as I read; 1- In chapter "one" of his book the author talked about how a communist Russia made terrible things to its own people while their leaders and the party discarded God. I understood from what he wrote that they became atheists so they did bad things to humanity because they've no morality or no guidance for what is right and what is wrong!. Well, What about Hitler and the Nazis they had the cross right on their flag and yet when we speak of the world war II w I'm going to write my review as I read; 1- In chapter "one" of his book the author talked about how a communist Russia made terrible things to its own people while their leaders and the party discarded God.

Well, What about Hitler and the Nazis they had the cross right on their flag and yet when we speak of the world war II we only think of the Nazis and what they did not only to their people but to the whole Europe and what about Italy and the Fascist were they also Atheists.

About Gerald Schroeder

It's a weak point to be used in his book, very weak!! Of course it is who can argue the smallness of the probability of monkeys randomly producing one of Shakespeare's sonnets?!. Dawkins in his book "the blind watchmaker" introduced another thought experiment in which randomness coupled with selection could render the process possible.

On page he stated a proverb; "the song a sparrow learns in his youth is its song for life'. Thank you for pointing out that the programming the human is subjected yo in his early age might control the way he thinks about issues for the rest of his life and there's indeed the 'illusion of truth' which states that repetition of things might lead to the belief that it's the truth.

But then he went on saying that and so we all learnt that Darwin is right!!! Is he out of his mind or what? We all learnt creationism in schools and homes from teachers and parents and took religious classes in schools but never heard of evolution unless in a small paragraph in a book from a disbelieving-in-evolution teacher!!. I have nothing against that, I don't deny that for life to exist on its current form certain conditions must be met to originate and sustain life but why jump to a conclusion rather than considering all possibilities?!.

I can say that the author here stated what is know as the "Goldilocks" which serves the idea that the conditions that helped life to flourish must have been finely tuned "be design". The idea of a God is an old one even among old tribes and the history of mythology in all races speaks for itself, here I'd ask the author where did you get your idea of "an intelligent designer"? I thing for one to jump to the conclusion of a designer is subjected to the "Illusion of truth Principle" where the repetition of something makes one believe it's true as such for every one born to religious parents must have been programmed since his very first moments and ordained in faith such that when became older and think he'd just search for what supports the religious claims unaware that he started his inquiry not empty handed ready for whatever results that might come up but he started already with an answer at the back of his head.

The main complexity in my opinion to the idea of a designer is "Causality" for it's only derived from the observation of how things in our own universe act, so to apply it to relation between elements in our universe including us is not a problem but to try to extrapolate it so as to derive the existence of the universe as a whole from something else that needs a proof which I have never come across one till this very moment!!!. Then he stated the properties of our universe and especially the earth and how that is "tuned" to nurture life!!.

Life would have taken a different path should any of these conditions became different!. Then it's indeed an ordinary planet and I can't understand how he contradicted him self in such a way!!!.

Other Titles by Gerald Schroeder

The book is not to be considered as one to be used for debates concerning God's existence and proving it through science, it's absolutely not that kind of books. It's much like a book for religious people to renew their faith, much like a religious explanatory book but from a scientist rather than a cleric!!. Building from the thesis expounded by J. Within that understanding, he observes that everything beg Building from the thesis expounded by J. From there, he offers the classic illustration of the problem with evolution—memory. Nonetheless, just like shaking up a bunch of letters I think of them as Scrabble tiles in a basket may produce a word and continued shaking will cause that word to disappear, there needs to be something that will conserve the evolutionary thrust of life.

On two occasions, he points out the significance of understanding the amount of space in an atom by positing the atomic material as the size of an orange and noting that the surrounding electron cloud would be four miles away. The orange only represents one part of solidity as a fraction of a million billion parts of absolute void. The bulk of what we know as matter is absolute void p.

This is a wonderful volume that merits reading and re-reading. It did for me.

Reviews of Deniable Darwin | David Berlinski

This book was simply bad. It started out questionable, moved to weak, and ended up a waste of time. Basically, the problem lies in very poor reasoning, and the inability to get past one's own personal faith position when writing a book that is obviously meant to appeal to a varied audience of intelligent readers. If one already believes the basic premise that underlies this book, then they will inevitably find Schroeder's arguments to be sound and insightful. Of course, that is really not the poi This book was simply bad. Of course, that is really not the point, is it?

If one is not convinced of the premise, one will not find S's conclusions to be convincing. Because he never comes close to establishing the premise. So, unless you are one of the first group who just likes to have their current beliefs supported, I would say don't waste your time. Jul 21, Linda Gunderman rated it it was amazing.

By far one of the best books I have read. Admittedly it can be physics heavy, I had to re-read many parts in order to follow the author, but that is due only to my lack of understanding in the field.

The title is misleading— nothing is proved. However, the book presents another lens through which to examine the divine and our assumptions and understanding. If you are an atheist, I doubt this book will change your mind. If you believe modern, western Christianity has it all nailed down then you will probably have major issues with the book. Oct 09, Michael rated it it was ok Shelves: yahweh. The subtitle is click-bait, because there's nothing here that I haven't read elsewhere, though Schroeder comes at it from a different angle. Using observations of nature, he asserts that God has a personality and wants to partner with humanity rather than control us.

About the Book

His basic thesis is that god is not infallible, but an evolving, mostly hands-off Mind that undergirds existence. Not exactly the clock maker who abandoned his clock, not exactly impersonal, but close enough for practical purposes. In fact the main flaw of this book is that it completely fails to demonstrate how such a god is different from no god at all -- how such a god would be relevan As a physicist who also has a deep knowledge of the Old Testament, Schroeder has been an influential thinker. In fact the main flaw of this book is that it completely fails to demonstrate how such a god is different from no god at all -- how such a god would be relevant to one's individual existence within the scope of one's lifetime.

Nor does it evade the inevitable rationalizations about the "problem of pain" -- you would have to accept some kind of afterlife as a settled fact in order to rationalize random suffering and loss. The book's main contribution, if you can call it that, is that it attempts, with mixed results, to harmonize scripture with this more scientific hypothesis about god, thus giving those unwilling to let go of the Bible as a holy book a framework for a new theology that is more in step with the reality of how we actually experience life.

This was followed by five years on the staff of the MIT physics department prior to moving to Israel, where he joined the Weizmann Institute of Science and then the Volcani Research Institute, while also having a laboratory at The Hebrew University. His Doctorate is in two fields: Earth sciences and physics. Schroeder's formal theological training in biblical, talmudic and kabalistic interpretation includes fifteen years of study under the late Rabbi Herman Pollack, Rabbi Chaim Brovender and Rabbi Noah Weinberg, of blessed memory. The scientific career that Schroeder chose has given him varied and often unusual experiences.

In his work with nuclear disarmament, he has been present at the detonation of six atomic bombs. Work in control of radioactivity has put him hundreds of meters below ground in U.
