Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
For over 300 years, science and religion have been in a heated debate. And here in the early years of the 21st century, the battle only seems to be intensifying. With a barrage of new atheistic books with titles like The God Delusion flooding the bookstore shelves, it might appear there is little hope that this long-standing split can be resolved. But according to physicist Amit Goswami, contrary to appearances, the split between science and religion may finally be on the verge of being healed. Science may at last be rediscovering God. Goswami states, "Materialist scientists posit that there is no source of causality other than material interaction in this world. This is what is known as 'upward causation.' In contrast, all spiritual traditions agree that there is another causal power in the world. That causal power is what is called God, or 'downward causation.' But let's not confuse this with a picture of God in outer space sitting on a throne. Downward causation is something that is scientific, because we can show that there is a scientific source of causality other than upward causation. This is being demonstrated by science." In this compelling dialogue, Goswami lays the groundwork for a new scientific paradigm that unites matter and spirit in a larger unifying embrace. (hosted by Craig Hamilton)
