How can we reconcile the physics of science with the metaphysics of religion? Jacob's Mirror adopts a new approach to this perennial question, seeking the answer not at the level of physics, but at the deeper level of the scientific method, specifically at the interface of the scientific phenomenon of subjectivity and the religious phenomenon of faith. "I came to believe that science must be flawed because it cannot account for the ability of faith to manipulate events. Science is compelled to dismiss these religious claims as delusional. So it seemed that one way to demonstrate the validity of faith to scientists would be to go native and translate faith into the vernacular of science. To do this requires us to question a most basic scientific assumption: that the universe exists external to and independent of us. I don't think it does. "What persuaded me was both my own experience with faith, and the fact that if we correct science's understandable but misplaced conviction in externality, the new science that emerges is recast in the mold of a generic religion that validates the most universal religious doctrines and finally provides verifiable evidence of the existence of God." - From Jacob's Mirror: A Reconciliation of Science and Religion
