9781453610268: God, Nature, and the Human Soul: A Personal Philosophy

This book is concerned with the Big Questions of Philosophy: What is the World made of? What is Life? Is there a God? Is there Life after Death? What is a Soul? Who am I? Professor Delbert John Larson, a Ph.D. physicist, Christian, and martial artist, examines each of these questions and more in this path-breaking new book. Over the past few centuries, a modern secular culture has arisen that has undermined traditional religious and scientific values. Biblical teachings have been ridiculed for being inconsistent with science. Science has abandoned the common sense notion of an objective reality. And a philosophy of relativism has replaced objectivity both in physics and in moral judgments so that there is now a great deal of confusion as to what is right and what is wrong. While there have been recent attempts to defend biblical teachings against the scientific record, these attempts, which include Creation Science and Intelligent Design, are typically in conflict with the scientific record. In this book, Doctor Larson pursues a new path toward reconciling his Christian beliefs with scientific fact. His aim is to keep as much of the traditional scientific and religious beliefs as is logically possible, while respectfully setting aside those minority portions of each that do not withstand careful scrutiny. In this book new theories of physics are outlined that allow for a return to the common sense notion of an objective reality. This book also describes how a harmonious coexistence of religion and science is still possible today, without contorting known scientific facts. If you have ever doubted or rejected Christianity because of science, you owe yourself the opportunity to read this book. It could quite possibly change your outlook on life!

About the Author:

Delbert John Larson is a Ph.D. Physicist who has held positions in many of the nation's top universities and laboratories during his 30 year career as a scientist. He has published several papers on new fundamental theories of physics, and serves as a frequent reviewer of papers dealing with fundamental physics concepts. Doctor Larson is also a martial artist and a Christian, and his combination of experiences has led to his development of a philosophy that combines the strengths of science and religion into a worldview consistent with Christian teachings while at the same time being consistent with scientific experiment and reason. Presently Doctor Larson is a Research Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at Arlington, where he is pursuing ECOFusion, a new approach to clean, safe, nuclear power. Doctor Larson is married to Geralyn, and has four children: Nate, Ben, Nick and Catherine.
