A Religious Outlook: Necessity for Life’s Navigation

There is so much controversy whirling today among religious or non-religious outlooks on life: Questions of God or no God; Fundamentalism or Atheism. Overall, religion is a worldview, a way of shaping and perceiving reality.  In this sense, everyone is religious.  Atheism is a religion as much as Catholicism.  Each structures the way we perceive […]

The Multiverse & The Human Heart

The Multiverse is the term being thrown around these days by physicists and astrophysicists and philosophers and what have you – an answer to where the universe we live in has originated – a gigantic hub or spawner of universes like our own, infinite in number, which we cannot observe even with powerful telescopes because […]

Taking Part in the Evolution of the Universe

How do we relate to the environment? The issue of climate change brings competing issues into clear focus. On the one hand, there are those who deny that humanity’s actions have any relation to the rapidly changing weather patterns we are witnessing worldwide.  On the other hand, there are those who find an integral link […]

What Is Life & Death?

I’m reading a book on physics today – the most advanced theories of the origin of the universe, or time before the big bang, and arguments for the existence or non-existence of God, and how the universe we know will disappear in a trillion years, no one to see it, no one to know it […]

A Challenge to Atheists, Humanists & Believers Alike

The battle between science and religion – between, on the one hand, the worldview of atheists, humanists, agnostics and others who see this universe as devoid of any God, and entrenched believers on the other hand, whether Christian, Jew, or Muslim – seems only to be growing more strident as time goes by. Actually, from […]

A Holographic Universe

Holograms are those three-dimensional light images, created with lasers.  You remember the cute little robot, R2D2, in the movie Star Wars, who would beam out an image of Princess Leia pleading for help – this is a hologram. There is a curious property of holograms.  If you take a hologram – say a picture of […]

The Secret World Everyone Is Looking For

Atheism vs. Fundamentalism.  Science vs. Religion.  Evolution vs. Creationism. The battle lines are drawn, have been drawn for centuries, and will continue to be drawn.  No quarter given.
