New Proofs for Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics
Fr. Spitzer discusses the contemporary Big Bang theory and its description of our universe. He will then examine the important questions of whether or not our universe had a beginning implying a creation by a transcendent power. He looks specifically into evidence from space-time geometry proofs and from the second law of thermodynamics, and makes the language and concepts accessible to an audience who may not be familiar with physics. He then examines five highly, highly improbable conditions of the universe which are necessary for life to be generated and survive. These so-called “anthropic coincidences” reveal a supernatural intelligence behind the universe’s fine-tuning. This evidence is important for the audience, but vital to the Catholic Church’s project of intellectual evangelization among educated young people and adults who consider science to be the entryway into truth.
This incredible popular of recent books championing agnosticism or atheism, many people might never know that such books almost completely ignore the considerable evidence for theism uncovered in both physics and philosophy over the past four decades. New Proofs for the Existence of God responds to these glaring omissions. / From universal space-time asymmetry to cosmic coincidences to the intelligibility of reality, Robert Spitzer tackles a wealth of evidence. He considers string theory, quantum cosmology, mathematical thoughts on infinity, and much more. / This fascinating and stunning collection of evidence provides solid grounding for reasonable and responsible belief in a super-intelligent, transcendent, creative power standing at the origins of our universe for which we live.
