  Article:   A SCIENTIFIC GRAND VIEW OF THE WORLD.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The article is an attempt to present a grand view of nature and religion as seen from the vantage point of science. After describing the different concepts of truth in these disciplines a number of surprising scientific discoveries are presented, the Big Bang, the Big Freeze and the Point Omega recently made in the areas of astronomy, biology and biological evolution. These phenomena could be explained by a Godhypothesis, that is, by postulating a natural phenomenon God who has created the world. From the viewpoint of the natural sciences the problem then is how such a hypothesis is to be verified and what role the religions play. I advocate a careful examination of the probabilities and conclude that such a God-hypothesis seems quite plausible.

Keywords: religion, creation, evolution, Big Bang, Big Freeze, Point Omega, God-hypothesis.
