Does God play dice with the universe? Do events happen by chance? Do we have free will? Was Einstein right in his assessment of quantum theory? If you seek answers to such questions, you have come to the right place. In my groundbreaking book God Does Not Play Dice. the final answers to such crucial questions can surely be achieved, and we can definitely go beyond the uncertainty and confusion that some scientists claim cannot be overcome. the final and only solution to the free will problem. Why Stephen Hawking is wrong when he says that there is `evidence` that God plays dice. the role of memory in solving the free will problem. the type of certainty that can be achieved. How past, present, and future are interrelated. Why key ideas presented by Richard Dawkins and John Allen Paulos are false. the reason why much of our worrying is misplaced and irrelevant. Why an important pillar of evolutionary theory is based on an incorrect assumption, making Darwinism `defunct`.

In this revolutionary and provocative work, David A. Shiang claims to offer final answers to many of humankind's most enduring mysteries. He argues that Einstein was right in rejecting the randomness of quantum theory, and he shows that Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Brian Greene (The Fabric of the Cosmos) are mistaken in saying that evidence shows nature to be probabilistic. He takes on Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) and Daniel Dennett (Breaking the Spell), contending that Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is neither scientific nor correct. He also maintains that worry and regret can be overcome, following in the footsteps of T.S. Eliot and other pioneers of the mind. Odds are high that the logical and elegant solutions Shiang presents to our deepest riddles will cause you to rethink your most fundamental beliefs. "Very provocative, erudite, and solidly based on intelligent and logical thinking! Congratulations on making an excellent contribution to understanding the role of a higher intelligence in organizing the affairs of the universe!" - Pat McGovern, IDG Founder and Chairman, Co-founder of The McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT "His lucidity and logic are breathtakingly devastating. He is not afraid to defend the mind of God, either.... I cannot overstate the importance of Shiang's work and its deep influence." - Len Klikunas, Cultural Anthropologist

What Einstein Got Wrong

Einstein famously said that "God does not play dice," meaning that quantum events only look probabilistic. He sought to make the quantum world less weird by finding a deterministic version of the theory.

A celebrated mathematician explores how math helps us make sense of the unpredictable We would like to believe we can know things for certain. We want to be able to figure out who will win an election, if the stock market will crash, or if a suspect definitely committed a crime. But the odds are not in our favor. Life is full of uncertainty --- indeed, scientific advances indicate that the universe might be fundamentally inexact --- and humans are terrible at guessing. When asked to predict the outcome of a chance event, we are almost always wrong. Thankfully, there is hope. As award-winning mathematician Ian Stewart reveals, over the course of history, mathematics has given us some of the tools we need to better manage the uncertainty that pervades our lives. From forecasting, to medical research, to figuring out how to win Let's Make a Deal, Do Dice Play God? is a surprising and satisfying tour of what we can know, and what we never will.

Quantum theory revolutionized physics at the beginning of the last century. Einstein was one of its originators, but as the implications of the theory emerged, he began to have doubts. Are the most basic physical processes based on probability? Is the Universe governed by chance? Do physical objects have an independent existence or do they exist only in our perception? The ramifications may appear bizarre but they are inherent to this perplexing subject. The Quantum Adventure deals with the birth and growth of quantum mechanics. It explains the “classical dilemma” which faced physics at the start of the 20th Century and goes on to show how quantum mechanics emerged and flourished. Difficult and abstract concepts are treated with minimal mathematics and maximal physical imagery. Snippets of information about the dramatis personae are woven into the text and add color to what is traditionally perceived as a complex and challenging topic. A must-read for anyone interested in quantum physics.

Science has made a mighty advance since it originated in ancient Greece more than 2500 years ago. Yet we still live in Plato's cave today; we think everything around us moves continuously, but continuous motion is merely a shadow of real motion. This book will lead you to walk out the cave along a logical and comprehensible road. After passing Zeno's arrow, Newton's inertia, Einstein's light, and Schrodinger's cat, you will reach the real world, where every thing in the universe, whether it is an atom or a ball or even a star, ceaselessly jumps in a random and discontinuous way. In a famous metaphor, God does play dice with the universe. The new discovery may finally solve Zeno's paradoxes and the quantum puzzle, and it will deeply change our view of the world.

In Does God Roll Dice? noted Jesuit scholar Joseph Bracken builds on his previous work in an attempt to provide an adequate metaphysical structure with which to understand the God-world relationship. The compatibility between faith and science depends, Bracken has argued, on an adequate metaphysical conception of reality. In this new book, he makes clear how a good understanding of the relationship between the One (as a transcendent reality that serves as a necessary principle of order and intelligibility) and the Many (as the concrete differences between people and things at any given moment) makes a significant difference in dealing with controversial issues in the field of theology and science, thereby easing tensions where they need not exist.

Does God exist? The question implies another: Who is God? This book is meant to give an answer to both questions and to give reasons for this answer. Does God exist? Yes or no? Many are at a loss between belief and unbelief; they are undecided, skeptical. They are doubtful about their belief, but they are also doubtful about their doubting. There are still others who are proud of their doubting. Yet there remains a longing for certainty. Certainty? Whether Christians or Jews, believers in God or atheists, the discussion today runs right across old denominations and new ideologies—but the longing for certainty is unquenched. Does God exist? We are putting all our cards on the table here. The answer will be "Yes, God exists," As human beings in the twentieth century, we certainly can reasonably believe in God—even more so in the Christian God—and perhaps even more easily today than a few decades or centuries ago. For, after so many crises, it is surprising how much has been clarified and how many difficulties in regard to belief in God have melted into the Light that no darkness has overcome.

There are two kinds of grammarians, those who describe and those who prescribe. In the academic world, the prescribers are usually viewed as the conservative old guard. The descriptarians are usually seen as the activists, young bucks who believe the task of grammarians is to map or chart how speakers use their language and note its changes over time.

Are you being called to the spiritual path? If so, are you doing anything about it? I am reminded of the concept; faith without works is dead. If we are being called to find out wonderful things about ourselves, God and the universe, we have to do something about it. Stepping onto a spiritual path is a way. Paths are all about doing. In this book you will find many encouraging words about different paths and the rewards and challenges that come with them. You will find that paths do not have to be organized or supervised, but they must be approached with consciousness and intent and contribute to our lives, and the life of the world. This book is one of my many paths within my one journey. My goal here is to, in some way, touch those who have not yet found a path or those who may be looking but do not know what they are looking for - those who may be wondering about life and God as I was, and still do. If you are at a place and time in your life where you are wondering or feel as though something is missing, this book may be for you. It is written for the "beginners mind." The short easy to read essays, poems and inspiring quotes are meant to send your mind off into wonderful directions, and your life on amazing paths that allow you to grow and blossom, and be the divine person you were meant to be. The different chapters address life and how we live it; our humanness as well as our divine nature. Some of the essays are about the rules of life, life as a game or a gamble, getting ready for our paths and stepping on to them.

A New York Times bestseller "An exhilirating exploration of the meaning of it all." --Robert Wright, author of The Evolution of God Drawn from Krista Tippett's Peabody Award-winning public radio program, the conversations in this profoundly illuminating book reach for a place too rarely explored in our ongoing exchange of ideas--the nexus of science and spirituality. In fascinating interviews with such luminaries as Freeman Dyson, Janna Levin, Parker Palmer, and John Polkinghorne, Krista Tippett draws out the connections between the two realms, showing how even those most wedded to hard truths find spiritual enlightenment in the life of experiment and, in turn, raise questions that are richly, theologically evocative. Whether she is speaking with celebrated surgeon and author Sherwin Nuland about the biology of the human spirit or questioning Drawin biographer James Moore about his subject's religious beliefs, Tippett offers a rare look at the way our best minds grapple with the questions for which we all seek answers. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Who knew that doomsday would be so hot? Environmental disasters, Ebola outbreaks, the popularity of reality television, and strife in the Middle East, may all be signs that time has come today. Weak and ailing after the end of the Cold War and the financial spree of the nineties, the timeless notion that the end is near is once again exerting a powerful influence on pop culture, politics, religion, and Mel Gibson. Omens and prophecies, asteroids collisions and nuclear war, oil crises and global warming, fire or ice, bang or whimper, asteroid or alien, act of God or human folly, Armageddon Now: The End of the World A to Z is all over doomsday prophecies. From alpha to omega, it is packed with 200 entries and 100 illustrations. Satan, saints, survivalists, and evangelical preachers known for their views on Biblical prophecies receive their due. In the end, the end has never been so thoroughly covered as in Armageddon Now. It's the last word for the end user. So, don't be left behind. Save yourself by buying this book.

For evolutionary biologists, the concept of chance has always played a significant role in the formation of evolutionary theory. As far back as Greek antiquity, chance and "luck" were key factors in understanding the natural world. Chance is not just an important concept; it is an entire way of thinking about nature. And as Curtis Johnson shows, it is also one of the key ideas that separates Charles Darwin from other systematic biologists of his time. Studying the concept of chance in Darwin's writing reveals core ideas in his theory of evolution, as well as his reflections on design, purpose, and randomness in nature's progression over the course of history. In Darwin's Dice: The Idea of Chance in the Thought of Charles Darwin, Curtis Johnson examines Darwin's early notebooks, his collected correspondence (now in 19 volumes), and most of his published writing to trace the evolution of his ideas about chance in evolution. This proved to be one of Darwin's most controversial ideas among his reading public, so much so that it drew hostile reactions even from Darwin's scientific friends, not to mention the more general reader. The firestorm of criticism forced Darwin to forge a retreat, not in terms of removing chance from his theory--his commitment to it was unshakable--but in terms of how he chose to present his theory. Briefly, by changing his wording and by introducing metaphors and images (the stone-house metaphor, the evolution of giraffes, and others), Darwin succeeded in making his ideas seem less threatening than before without actually changing his views. Randomness remained a focal point for Darwin throughout his life. Through the lens of randomness, Johnson reveals implications of Darwin's views for religion, free will, and moral theory. Darwin's Dice presents a new way to look at Darwinist thought and the writings of Charles Darwin.

Man is by nature a philosophical being. Wars are fought over philosophical differences of social-economics, religion, geopolitics and racial arrogance. Arguably, the greatest philosophical quest of mankind has been the overwhelming desire to know Self; to understand the nature of being. Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Are we just a roll of the dice in the universe or is there orchestration in our existence? Socrates, Plato, Phathagoras, Nietzsche all had philosophies of human consciousness and the nature of being. This book brings a message from the beyond to help answere these questions. I think, therefore I am does not answer the question. What is the I am? Are you the sum aggregate of an epiphenomenon of random firing neurons that simply no longer exist after the complex system dies or are you a spirit that temporarily resides in this brain machine that is liberated upon the death of this complex neurological system? These two philosophies are not only basic, they are opposite and opposing. Both can not be true. Either Life is a kaos between two nothings or it is a complex and dynamic co-existence between the physical and spiritual worlds. This book examines this question like no other because of the unique background of the author. Not only is he a Neurologist, giving him a position of some authority on this subject, but he is also an engineer, which contribute a degree of logic to the equation. His past profession as a mixed gas deep sea diver gives a bold practical presentation to the subject of near death experience. At one time during the authors youth, he was firmly convinced that human consciousness was machine in nature only and ceased to exist with death of the brain-machine. He no longer holds this view because of his personal experiences as a neruologist and has thus been willing to be open minded. This book is the result of (and an explanation for) this change of view. It present the argument for Dualism (Co-existence of spirit and brain) in personal, scientific and intellectual terms. This book challenges the reader; to open his or her eyes, think outside the narrow western religious box, and perhaps move a little closer to God. Chapter one tells the authors personal story and how his experience of simply listening to patients helped him think outside the box. Chapter two presents the argument for dualistic philosophy on purely scientific and neurological terms. Chapter three reviews selected cases in current literature and examines them from a neurological perspective. Chapter four reviews selected cases in current literature supporting reincarnation. Chapter five helps integrate this knowledge with western Judeo-Christian philosophy and helps us understand the origins of the western view. The Book is meant to be small so that it will be read. As an engineer, the author is inclined to straight talk as opposed to bull verbiage. I think you will find this little yellow book fascinating, provocative and thought provoking.
