New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy

Synopsis

With the incredible popularity of recent books championing agnosticism or atheism, many people might never know that such books almost completely ignore the considerable evidence for theism uncovered in both physics and philosophy over the past four decades. New Proofs for the Existence of God responds to these glaring omissions.

From universal space-time asymmetry to cosmic coincidences to the intelligibility of reality, Robert Spitzer tackles a wealth of evidence. He considers string theory, quantum cosmology, mathematical thoughts on infinity, and much more.

This fascinating and stunning collection of evidence provides solid grounding for reasonable and responsible belief in a super-intelligent, transcendent, creative power standing at the origins of our universe.

Excerpt

The last few years have seen several books championing agnosticism or atheism making their way into the popular press. These books leave most informed readers quite baffled, because they ignore the vast majority (if not the entirety) of the considerable evidence for theism provided by physics and philosophy during the last few decades. This evidence is capable of grounding reasonable and responsible belief in a super-intelligent, transcendent, creative power that stands at the origins of our universe or any hypothetically postulated multiverse. the main purpose of this book is to give a brief synopsis of this evidence to readers who are interested in exploring the strongest rational foundation for faith that has come to light in human history.

The great physicist Sir Arthur Eddington remarked in his classic work The Nature of the Physical World:

We all know that there are regions of the human spirit untrammeled by
the world of physics. in the mystic sense of the creation around us, in the
expression of art, in a yearning towards God, the soul grows upward and
finds the fulfillment of something implanted in its nature. the sanction
for this development is within us, a striving born with our consciousness
or an Inner Light proceeding from a greater power than ours. Science
can scarcely question this sanction, for the pursuit of science springs
from a striving which the mind is impelled to follow, a questioning that
will not be suppressed. Whether in the intellectual pursuits of science or
in the mystical pursuits of the spirit, the light beckons ahead and the
purpose surging in our nature responds.
