Science, religion, and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence by David Wilkinson( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If the discovery of life elsewhere in the universe is just around the corner, what would be the consequences for religion? Would it represent another major conflict between science and religion, even leading to the death of faith? Some would suggest that the discovery of any suggestion of extraterrestrial life would have a greater impact than even the Copernican and Darwinian revolutions. It is now over 50 years since the first modern scientific papers were published on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Yet the religious implications of this search and possible discovery have never been systematically addressed in the scientific or theological arena. SETI is now entering its most important era of scientific development. New observation techniques are leading to the discovery of extra-solar planets daily, and the Kepler mission has already collected over 1000 planetary candidates. This deluge of data is transforming the scientific and popular view of the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. Earth-like planets outside of our solar system can now be identified and searched for signs of life. Now is a crucial time to assess the scientific and theological questions behind this search. This book sets out the scientific arguments undergirding SETI, with particular attention to the uncertainties in arguments and the strength of the data already assembled. It assesses not only the discovery of planets but other areas such as the Fermi paradox, the origin and evolution of intelligent life, and current SETI strategies. In all of this it reflects on how these questions are shaped by history and pop culture and their relationship with religion, especially Christian theology. It is argued that theologians need to take seriously SETI and to examine some central doctrines such as creation, incarnation, revelation, and salvation in the light of the possibility of extraterrestrial life. -- Publisher's description

Scientist and theologian David Wilkinson engages with the question, sharing his insights and struggles. How does God answer prayer? This question has engaged Christians for centuries. It has been intellectually shaped by the rise of science, the problem of evil, and the nature of the biblical records. Scientist and theologian David Wilkinson engages with the question, sharing his insights and struggles. What we believe affects how we pray. Science does not rule out God acting in the universe in surprising ways, and the Bible portrays a God who acts in the world in response to people s prayers. God is not a slot machine, an indulgent parent, a divine dictator, or a ruler in absentia. But how does He work in a world of science? Why doesn t He answer more often? How has God acted in history? How did Jesus pray and what can we learn from Him? How, in a world governed by law and grace, should we pray? There is a mystery about the nature and outcome of prayer, particularly in the experience of unanswered prayer. David Wilkinson shares how he has wrestled with this while praying in the midst of his wife's long-term illness
