New Book Challenges Big Bang, Darwinism and Creationism
CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — The Heaven at the End of Science: An Argument for a New Worldview of Hope, by Philip Mereton, takes a fresh and bold look at the debate between science and religion — and attempts to go farther than any other book to unite them.
Instead of trying to show that religion is wrong because science is better at finding truth, or that science must be wrong because it leaves out God, this new book shows that if we eliminate the unnecessary assumptions of our modern, materialistic worldview, we wind up finding a way to connect the logical rigor of science with the hopes and dreams of religion.
The Heaven at the End of Science says that instead of viewing the universe as a random outcome of the Big Bang or as a special creation from the hand of God, why not see if we can explain the world as a powerful dream emerging from a universal mind, a mind some call God? It provokes the reader to think about the big questions, and inspire many to reach for higher goals only achievable in a dream world. This book gives a completely different perspective than modern science.
“In The Heaven at the End of Science Philip Mereton presents a well-argued, strongly documented and immensely readable critique of the worldview we have come to associate with modern science. In addition, he proposes a bold new cosmological hypothesis that he finds hospitable to the concerns of both science and religion. I strongly recommend this thoughtful book to anyone interested in these philosophically important matters.” — Gary A. Cook, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Beloit College
“The Heaven at the End of Science lucidly, comprehensively and inspiringly exposes the limits of materialist science. The author’s ‘Real Dream’ provides an inspiration for a new worldview that transcends these limits.” — Lawrence Wile, M.D. Director, Chaikin-Wile Foundation
