The Beginning of All Things

Science and Religion
< p> Translated by John Bowden< /p> < p> In an age when faith and science seem constantly to clash, can theologians and scientists come to a meeting of minds? < em> Yes< /em> , maintains the intrepid Hans K?ng, as he brilliantly argues here that religion and science are not mutually exclusive but complementary.< /p> < p> Focusing on beginnings ? beginnings of time, of the world, of man, of human will ? K?ng deals with an array of scientific precepts and teachings. From a unified field theory to quantum physics to the Big Bang to the theory of relativity ? even superstring and chaos theories ? he examines all of the theories regarding the beginning of the univererse and life (of all kinds) in that universe.< /p> < p> K?ng seeks to reconcile theology with the latest scientific insights, holding that "a confrontational model for the relationship between science and theology is out of date, whether put forward by fundamentalist believers and theologians or by rationalistic scientists and philosophers." While accepting evolution as scientists generally describe it, he still maintains a role for God in founding the laws of nature by which life evolved and in facilitating the adventure of creation.< /p> < p> Exhibiting little patience for scientists who do not see beyond the limits of their discipline or for believers who try to tell experts how things must have been, K?ng challenges readers to think more deeply about the beginnings in order to facilitate a new beginning in dialogue and understanding.< /p>
