Revealed Universe Impact On Religion: Metaphysics of by Jay Schlickman

By Jay Schlickman

This treatise demonstrates that we are living in a universe ruled by means of the legislation of quantum mechanical uncertainty and relativistic complexity. in response to this thesis, the treatise uniquely codifies the basis explanation for the science-religion clash.
A transparent and concise definition of the serious distinction among technological know-how and faith is gifted when it comes to science’s WHAT-IS and religion’s WHAT-OUGHT-TO-BE imperatives. the next assumptions are used:
•The objective of technology: technological know-how discovers the WHAT-IS of life via analytical versions and experimental verification that calls for falsifiability.
•The goal of faith: faith broadcasts the WHAT-OUGHT-TO-BE of lifestyles via spiritual doctrine that calls for non secular absolutism.
•The science-religion clash: it really is this highbrow stress that kinds the root-cause of the science-religion clash as the pressure pits falsifiability opposed to absolutism that leads to a traditionally intractable dilemma.
•The goal of this treatise: This treatise illustrates how the necessities of contemporary physics could be built-in into spiritual doctrine in the sort of means that it negates non secular absolutism.
The proposed technique calls for the legislation of quantum mechanical uncertainty and relativistic complexity be included inside of non secular canons less than the conclusion that it truly is hugely not likely that any individual, staff or civilization can very likely determine the limitless and everlasting attributes of any deity.
Because we will be able to by no means ensure that we've encompassed thoroughly both the divine nature or its infinitely advanced attributes, it's probably that every one religions are only as legitimate as the other due to the fact that every one faith may have discerned just a sliver of the whole divine knowledge.
In specific, the melding of recent physics discoveries with spiritual doctrine is desperately had to opposite our present course within the center East that may lead us finally to mutual self-extermination and the tip of all existence in this Earth.
