Mai come di questi tempi la questione della compatibilità tra fede e ragione, tra scienza razionale e credenze religiose ha appassionato il pubblico dei lettori. Molti libri di successo radicalizzano lo scontro, sostenendo che nessuna teologia può resistere di fronte al cammino inarrestabile del progresso scientifico. Frank Tipler, fisico americano, non è d'accordo e sosti ...more

Fascinating book, even though I disagreed with a large chunk of it. For starters, if Tipler's view of the eventual Resurrection is correct (that is, every person who ever lived will be resurrected as a computer simulation in the Omega Point and then placed in a simulated environment where all "bad things" are removed), of what use is being a Christian, or making good moral choices? Tipler also appears to take some Biblical passages very literally (the star of Bethlehem is stressed as being an ac ...more

Tipler acknowledges that he is a 'Physics Fundamentalist'. Using the principles of five fundamental physical laws: quantum mechanics, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, general relativity, quantum cosmology and the Standard Model of Particle Physics, he validates several 'Christian' contentions which were hitherto in the domain of miracles. Namely the Incarnation, the Virgin Birth of Jesus, and the Resurrection. Using an arresting blend of scientific and mathematical logic, Tipler also throws pro ...more

Certainly an interesting book, but I got the overwhelming impression that the author was trying too hard to make his beliefs about Christianity and physics fit together perfectly.

I was also surprised that there was absolutely no mention of Hell, given that that seems to be a fairly important concept to most versions of Christianity. Perhaps he covers that topic in his previous book, The Physics of Immortality?

That said, there were a couple of interesting (to me, anyway) discussions about the na

A seriously deceptive piece of shit. Tipler often mixes and relates completely different principles in physics to deceive the reader and lead the reader to his very flawed conclusions. Absolute bullshit and not worthy as study in physics or theological thought.
Jef
Based on his Physics of Immortality, this book goes even further and states boldly that there can be no other conclusion from General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics than that Christianity is all true. He calls scientist who reject his conclusions heretics.
Anthony
To summarize this book is to use the author's quote "The cosmological Singularity is God".

È una sorta di par condicio. Avendo letto a suo tempo (e non apprezzato per nulla...) Il Tao della fisica di Fritjof Capra con l'associazione delle religioni orientali alla fisica contemporanea, mi è sembrato interessante vedere l'altra campana religiosa: la fisica vista dagli occhi di un cristiano, o meglio il cristianesimo visto dal punto di vista di un fisico. Frank Tipler, l'autore di questo libro è noto per aver scritto con John Barrow Il principio antropico, e questa è la sua seconda opera ...more

Whether you agree with Dr. Tipler or not, it's impossible to deny that he makes a very evocative narrative of the Christian faith and the future of science. That this book is so roundly criticized by both camps is, I believe, more a statement of the shameful and false dichotomy of modern society, rather than a charge against Dr. Tipler himself.

While I myself find myself in disagreement with some points, he has given me a great deal of food for thought, and thus, I find myself almost forced to g

I find the parts about physics interesting, and consider Christianity a matter of faith (not physics). By trying to unite the two the author loses credibility in my mind. For a good laugh, read the last paragraph of each chapter!

I found this book too technical and not accessible to the lay reader and thus cannot rate or recommend it.

Blew my mind. I'd love for a phycisist friend to read it so we can discuss.
