In this engrossing new book, Dr. Bernard Haisch contends that there is a purpose and an underlying intelligence behind the Universe, one that is consistent with modern science, especially the Big Bang and evolution. It is based on recent discoveries that there are numerous coincidences and fine-tunings of the laws of nature that seem extraordinarily unlikely.

A more rational concept of God is called for. As astrophysicist Sir James Jeans wrote, “the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.”

Despite bestsellers by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and Sam Harris that have denounced the evils of religion and proclaimed that science has shown that there is no God, The Purpose-Guided

Universe shows how one can believe in God and science.

This is a rather interesting book that looks at the intersection of religion and science. Of particular interest is his use of the ideas of the perennial philosophy. His teleological stress is that of the cosmological God, and is not really feeling the need of a personal God. But God he states is in our consciousness and informs it.more
The main premise that I liked was that all consciousness is at its root, the same phenomena and that consciousness is a more fundamental force than matter-energy AND space-time. Other than that he was sort of a God-of-the-gaps philosopher. He also supports re-incarnation and karma, which I think is a blame-the-victim mentality if there ever was one. His point about the Multiverse is that it is harder to believe than a single creative intelligence and there is no evidence to suggest that there are multiple universes except for the fact that our universe is so finely tuned for self.more
