9780875866079: The Big Bang and Relative Immortality: Seminal Essays on the Creation of the Universe and the Advent of Biological Immortality

This series of brief and sparkling philosophical essays explores the Principle of Continuity as it impacts discussions of the Big Bang and the expansion of the universe, God, infinity, biological immortality and evolution. From Ancient Greece to the frontiers of modern science, some egregious blunders have been made in both philosophy and in theoretical physics. The old theory of Continuous Creation was blown up by the Big Bang theory, but the author shows that this is just another ontological quagmire that conflicts with the First Law of Thermodynamics (conservation)—and common sense. Surveying scientific principles, he discerns where they can and cannot illuminate our understanding

About the Author:

Sebastian Sisti is a retired copywriter who has been writing about science, philosophy, and 'the immortality of the body' since 1953.

Review:

Drawing on sources ranging from the Bible and classical Greek philosophy to scientific studies on telomeres (which appear to govern cell longevity), freelance writer/philosopher Sisti (not the late baseball player with the same name) questions the logic of the Big Bang theory. The author makes a provocative case for a "principle of continuity" driving evolution toward biological immortality. He discusses the implications of an immortal vs. a death culture. --BOOK NEWS, Inc.
