Quote of the day (refresh browser to select another):

The universe and the observer exist as a pair. ... The moment you say that the universe exists without any observers, I cannot make any sense out of that. I cannot imagine a consistent theory of everything that ignores consciousness. A recording device cannot play the role of an observer, because who will read what is written on this recording device? In order for us to see that something happens, and say to one another that something happens, you need to have a universe, you need to have a recording device, and you need to have us. It's not enough for the information to be stored somewhere, completely inaccessible to anybody. It's necessary for somebody to look at it. You need an observer who looks at the universe. In the absence of observers, our universe is dead. -- Andre Linde (Russian-American cosmologist), interviewed by Tim Folger, "Does the Universe Exist if We're Not Looking?", Discover, 1 Jun 2002, available at Folger2002.

A website dedicated to the search for harmony between science and religion

Approach

The objective of this website is to collect high-quality, authoritative information on topics in the intersection of science and religion, and to present this information in a rigorous, well-documented manner. Topics include the philosophy of science, Judeo-Christian theology, biblical scholarship, creationism, intelligent design, modern physics, big bang cosmology and social issues, organized into more than 80 separate articles (not including an additional 100+ articles in the blog). These articles are updated periodically as new research results and scholarship become available. Detailed references are given in all cases, and all references are listed in an extensive bibliography.

Material on this site is provided for research and education purposes only. No advertisements are permitted, nor are any solicitations to support any organization -- scientific, academic or religious. Most of the material is representative of and targeted to a broad spectrum of Judeo-Christian thought. Indeed, the vast majority of these issues are common to a wide range of religious denominations. Where theologians or religious leaders are quoted, their affiliation is indicated when possible. At the request of several LDS friends, I have also included a selection of information specifically of interest to LDS readers, placed on a separate section of the website.
