A Confluence of New Discoveries have positioned us at a Liminal Threshold to Gain Unparalleled Clarity into God's Potential Existence / Inexistence
"A fascinatingly deep, arresting, and revolutionary tome that strikes to the heart of the tumultuous God-Science drama. The author snatches pulsating kernels of insight from a galley of the greatest scientific and philosophic thought leaders of our age from the Dalai Lama, Nobel laureates, Templeton Prize Laureates and other luminaries to weigh-out the sum. The spellbinding conclusion is a zenith in the quest to gather-up all the clues to aim our finger at the parameters for the existence / inexistence of a God-like entity circulating somewhere in the fabric of our universe or beyond. A genuine Seeker's Bible to clearly map the otherwise challenging terrain to elucidate the ultimate pinnacle of clarity mankind has been yearning for."
Albert Einstein quipped that searching for the truth invariably involves taking small, uncertain, painful steps in blind alleyways. He marveled at the structure of reality, a curiosity that led to his discovery of the intrinsic relationship between space and time. When it came to God, his humility favored the notion that God created the space-time continuum, but opined that he was not active inside the universe. Einstein's intuition signals that a single, splashy discovery to reveal God's existence is a fool's folly and insights into whether God is real will only be liberated when the imposed levy of many penetrating discoveries is collected . . .This toll has now been paid!
The Naked Truth about God pioneers the next advent of mankind's understanding of the prospective existence (or inexistence) of an otherworldly entity. A string of discoveries from far flung knowledge domains ratchet a tight perimeter on God's ontology (i.e., nature of existence). The audacity of such a claim demands equally audacious evidence. The Naked Truth about God tracks a spectrum of discoveries in astronomy, cosmological physics, human cognition and consciousness, origins-of-life research, scriptural interpretation, archaeological artifacts, and the philosophies of mind, religion, and science.
In the past, the market of world religions and spiritualists pointed flashlights in many directions leaving us at an intersection where believers and skeptics tell each other that they are on the wrong side of the road. We are now equipped with a more focused beam to better define the existence -- or inexistence -- of God. And this new lighted pathway yields amazing clarity in a very unexpected way.
The Naked Truth about God is the authoritative knowledge Seeker's Bible for anyone who is malnourished from feckless platitudes and wispy hyperbole about God. This is a no-holds barred, fearless, intrepid adventure to ascertain the limits and possibilities of God, time, reality, humanity, and the universe. The conclusion is epic, sublime, and desperately needed to overcome the challenges of our time.
About the Author:
Most would admit that there is a swelling mass of disinformation, bias, and patently wrong information in the ecosphere concerning the conversation on God's potential existence. As a forensic engineer, research engineer, technology pioneer, longtime adherent of Christianity, and someone well-read in the Great Religion-Science Dialogue, sussing out the truth to complex phenomena with conflicting information and puzzling riddles is a task the author is well-suited for.
The genesis of this book was motivated in part by the author's concern for the epistemic crisis caused by several all-too commonly held beliefs.
- Faith is all that is needed for individuals to "justify" God's existence
- Religious fanatics who embrace physical brutality and mental oppression is justified as "God's will." A companion view is that humans should never question God in any way.
- Theists (i.e., explainers of why God exists) and philosophers have not solved the pivotal issue of why God permits evil and suffering.
- God is beyond all human capacities. But, we know he is a benevolent God, spirit, or universal force who is a cosmic steward guiding the destiny of the cosmos.
These issues might not trouble the casual observer, but they are in fact Earth-sized wrecking balls that shake the very foundations that a benevolent God (or 'spiritual positive universal force') exists and puts in jeopardy all religious doctrine!
The only way to escape this predicament is by intelligizing God through credible evidence and well-reasoned arguments. Another view of the problem is that faith without reason/evidence cannot be distinguished from superstition or a fanciful imagination
The vast accumulation of knowledge and nascent discoveries in many fields of study have positioned us at a liminal threshold where we can now settle many open issues circulating on what we can and cannot know about God's potential existence.
