The Cosmos, God and Philosophy

Series:

Ralph J. Moore and Brooke Moore

Saint Paul and Sir Isaac Newton advised that we look for God in His works. But twentieth century science has revolutionized our understanding of the physical and biological universe. How should our changed understanding affect traditional thought about God? This book seeks to answer this question. The first part of the book is a general portrayal of the universe, guided by what science says about it. In the second part traditional arguments for the existence of God are considered in relationship to the contemporary cosmological panorama. In separate concluding chapters the authors set forth alternative opinions as to whether or not the cosmos is indeed God's work.
Contents: Part One depicts the universe as revealed by current science, including the Big Bang, spacetime, matter, gravity, galaxies, and the Earth as Eden or Olympus - Part Two discusses religious language, proofs of God, and justification of belief, and concludes as to God. This book completely portrays the universe depicted by contemporary science, comprehensively appraises traditional arguments for God, and seeks the impact of that portrayal on the arguments.
