An Elijah Muhammad Speech During The Second Day of The Nation of Islam Saviour's Day Convention in 1967. It aims chiefly at the politically shallow 60's version of Black power by introducing "Real Black Power" as it relates to how God and all life originally came out of total black space. A profound example of Elijah Muhammad's comprehensive lecture is demonstrated when he asked, "If the scripture said that in the beginning God said 'Let there be light, ' then He couldn't have been in the light when he said that. He Himself had to have come from Blackness; thus ORIGINAL BLACK POWER!

From Science to God offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness — how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. From Science to God is as much a personal story of an open-minded skeptic as it is a tour de force of scientific and religious paradigm shifts. Russell takes us from Galileo’s den to the lecture halls of Cambridge where he studied with Stephen Hawking. “If you had asked me then if there was a God,” says the best-selling author of his scientific beginnings, “I would have pointed to mathematics.” But no matter what empirical truths science offered Russell, one thorny question remained: How can something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter?

Did the Big Bang create the universe? Did life start by chance, all without a cause? Does God exist? New discoveries in science are now pointing to the need for a Creator to explain the unexplainable. Science is observing that many features of our universe could not have happened purely by chance. Despite the academic dominance of philosophical naturalism and materialism, many scientists are bravely putting forth the God Hypothesis as an alternate theory to the origin of the universe. Yet many students are being bombarded by unbiblical theories when they go to school, and they are thus losing their faith in God. In events like these, it is important to know how to articulate a Christian worldview. If you are interested in a cutting-edge debate between science and religion, then Discovering God in Science is a must-read. Join new author Charles E. Steele as he offers insight into this ongoing debate. Discovering God in Science is sure to equip, encourage, and guide students of all ages in their faith in the Creator. Charles E. Steele has had a lifelong interest in astronomy and science. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a B.S. in industrial design. In 1969 he joined the U.S. Air Force, where he was stationed at Ramstein A.B., West Germany. His interest in science and technology has allowed him to be awarded 11 U.S. Patents. He has been listed in Who's Who in the Midwest. He currently lives in Michigan with his wife and mother, where he remains semi-active as a design consultant.

It is widely believed that contemporary science has ruled out divine action in the world. Arguing that theology can and must respond to this challenge, Philip Clayton surveys the available biblical and philosophical resources. Recent work in cosmology, quantum physics, and the brain sciences offers exciting new openings for a theology of divine action. If Christian theism is to make use of these opportunities, says Clayton, it must place a greater stress on divine immanence. In response to this challenge, Clayton defends the doctrine of panentheism, the view that the world is in some sense "within" God although God also transcends the world. God and Contemporary Science offers the first book-length defense of panentheism as a viable option within traditional Christian theology. Clayton first defends a "postfoundationalist" model of theology that is concerned more with the coherence of Christian belief than with rational obligation or proof. He makes the case that the Old and New Testament theologies do not stand opposed to panentheism but actually support it at a number of points. He then outlines the philosophical strengths of a panentheistic view of God's relation to the world and God's activity in the world. The remainder of the book applies this theological position to recent scientific developments: theories of the origin of the universe; quantum mechanics, or the physics of the very small; the debate about miracles; and neuroscientific theories of human thought.

A scientist explores the harmony between Christian faith and science Though some Christians and many skeptics see science and Christianity as locked in a never-ending battle, geologist Gregg Davidson contends that there is tremendous harmony between Scripture and modern science. Many apparent conflicts arise when the Bible is interpreted apart from its literary and historical contexts, but when these are taken into account, most alleged clashes resolve. Proceeding from a belief that Scripture is inspired and without error and that God's creation should inform how we interpret the Bible, Davidson shows that Scripture and science need not disagree on issues like the age of the earth, Adam and Eve, Noah's flood, the origin and development of life, and numerous related topics. Rather, Christians can rejoice at how God's glory is revealed in both the Bible and the natural world.

We are told that science and religion are wholly incompatible and that those of us who profess faith in God are unwilling to bend our wills to the truth. In this highly gratifying book, scientist Dr. Gerard Verschuuren flips this assertion around, showing time and time again how it is not the Christians, but rather the scientists, who are unwilling to incline their wills to the truth when it presents itself. Dr. Verschuuren helps us to recognize science’s limited scope, how it is restricted to what can be dissected, measured, and counted. It is not the only pathway to knowledge. Science operates within the realm of nature. It cannot, therefore, make aesthetic judgments or moral judgments or draw conclusions about the supernatural, which is, by definition, beyond the realm of nature. Science is likewise ill-equipped to explore ethereal concepts such as beauty and love. It explores only the how, never the why. But science can, and does, point us in the direction of the Creator. With clear, well-documented explanations, Dr. Verschuuren carefully guides you through the fields of science, identifying the many “hints” and “signs” of God’s existence in genetics, neuroscience, behavioral science, semantics, logic, and math. Taken together, these hints provide an overwhelming case for the existence of God that is practically impossible to deny. How Science Points to God teaches you to approach scientific processes and discoveries with a mind of faith, bringing you to a far deeper understanding of who we are and how we came to be. In this way, science is moving us toward ultimately proving the existence of God, while inspiring and intensifying our faith along the way.

Does God exist? Did a Master Designer create our universe, or did life spontaneously evolve? Can science retain objectivity in the search for truth while allowing for the possibility that God exists? Does it make any difference? Ariel A. Roth, scientist and Christian believer, examines key issues related to the God question: * the intricate organization of matter in the universe * the precision of the forces of physics * the complexity of the eye and the brain * the elaborate genetic code * the disparity between the fossil record and the vast amount of time necessary for evolution Faced with so much evidence that seems to require a God in order to explain what we find in nature, why does the scientific community remain silent about God? Hypotheses and speculations that attempt to fit data into a predetermined conclusion abound. What overriding influence prevents scientists from following the data of nature wherever it may lead?

Science and the God Elusion presents compelling arguments about the mysteries of the universe that science cannot unravel as yet. The Big Bang theory, for example, cries out for a divine explanation and the hypothesis presented on the origins of life on earth is ridden with serendipity. The book seeks to bring together all of these scientific and theological conversations to one table so as to open a new window and insight into the God that eludes scientific investigation and presents His wonder through mystical realms. But of course, religion and science are also two different and complementary avenues to knowledge and truth. Seen in their proper complementarity, they jointly illumine life's mystery and conundrums.

SCIENTIFIC THEORY OF GOD Today's world is filled with doubt or even total disbelief that God really exists. Scientists say there is no scientific evidence of a Creator, and many of us are trying to cope with what we think is a meaningless existence. We have learned to trust science, but we don't want this to be all there is, so we find hope in our religious faith. However, religion is the worship of God-not scientific proof of God-so we are caught between two very conflicting worldviews... ...and our doubts about God won't go away. What isn't realized is that-contrary to what we are taught in school-science actually does prove God's existence. Scientific Theory of God breaks down the walls between science and faith and reveals an understanding of God based on scientific proof. For the most part, the twenty-first century scientific community bases their foundation upon their claim that the universe came from nothing and that it mysteriously-and instantly-came into existence. This process is less formally known as the Big Bang theory. Most mainstream scientists would have you believe that you are an accident of nature lost in time and place without help and...without hope-purposeless! Scientific Theory of God throws off the scientific veil of confusion by researching some of the greatest minds in physics, including the theories of Sir Issac Newton, to uncover the truth: You are not an accident. You are not insignificant. You have an ultimate purpose designed just for you. Take an impactful and revolutionary look at the many convincing proofs of God's existence. Now, it is time to discover that each person is at the center of a divine heart-a dynamic and personable God. A higher Being who has not only designed the universe, but also oversees a specific reality created for each individual. Scientific Theory of God delves into the difficult questions that have been pondered by mankind for centuries regarding the universe, humanity's purpose, and God's existence. Learn how the answer has been under scientist's noses for hundreds of years, as this work delivers the scientific proofs to revolutionize the concepts of the universe, man's relationship to God, and his journeys through this life and into the next. This book has the power to change your life.

Life is all about being successful and happy. Many of us have everything and yet find the real happiness missing. We are constantly in pursuit of that joy which has eluded us forever, thus far. When we realize our true nature and origin, it enables our progression towards attaining a happy and fearless state in life. Each one of us is a divine Soul; unborn, unchanging, immutable and eternal; an inseparable potency of that Supreme God, who dwells in us eternally. Though each one of us has the potential to experience a divine existence, being immortals, we have chosen to take birth in this mortal world; taking birth to die and dying to take birth again, in some 8.4 million bodies. There is a mismatch in what is happening to us. We are immortals, but the bodies we acquire in this world are not. We can attain the divine, eternal world of God, if we realize our imperishable relationship with God, who alone can grant us the state we all seek. With that realization, we can transcend causes and effects of this karmic world, overcoming grief and pain. We not only achieve material success, but also live a useful life, for the self, for our families and for the society.

“It may seem bizarre, but in my opinion, science offers a surer path to God than religion…science has actually advanced to the point where what were formerly religious questions can be seriously tackled” (Paul Davies, Astrophysicist). Anthony Walsh’s latest riposte to atheistic arguments against God's existence draws on Natural Theology, a knowledge of God based on evidence from both the natural and social sciences. Covering everything from the Big Bang and the origins of life to the mystery of intelligent consciousness, Walsh makes even the most technical scientific writings accessible to the general reader and tackles a question few books on the relationship between science and religion have ever sought to address: how does Christianity positively affect societies, families, and individuals in terms of democracy, justice, happiness, health, and prosperity?

In this groundbreaking volume, J. Anderson Thomson, Jr., MD, with Clare Aukofer, offers a succinct yet comprehensive study of how and why the human mind generates religious belief. Dr. Thomson, a highly respected practicing psychiatrist with credentials in forensic psychiatry and evolutionary psychology, methodically investigates the components and causes of religious belief in the same way any scientist would investigate the movement of astronomical bodies or the evolution of life over time—that is, as a purely natural phenomenon. Providing compelling evidence from psychology, the cognitive neurosciences, and related fields, he, with Ms. Aukofer, presents an easily accessible and exceptionally convincing case that god(s) were created by man—not vice versa. With this slim volume, Dr. Thomson establishes himself as a must-read thinker and leading voice on the primacy of reason and science over superstition and religion.
