String Theory: God and the Universe

String Theory: God and the Universe

Throughout the history of human kind, from the understanding of our world as being flat, to string theory and evolutionary darwinian theories, science has fought against the prejudices of religions. Currently, through advances in theoretical physics, we are as close as ever to unveil the hidden equations that would unify the very large with the very small, quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory. However, there is a conceptual battle that has been going on since the dawn of civilisations between science and religion, as we draw closer to answering some of the fundamental question dealing with the origins of the universe, the pitch for this war is as confusing and blurry as ever. Where does science stop and metaphysics and the need for a transcendent being and religion start?

Cultural Beacons – Richard Dawkins and the Selfish Gene

Oxford Professor Richard Dawkins - Author of the Selfish Gene and The God Delusion

In 1972, Britain was undergoing a series of power shortages. A young biologist, Richard Dawkins, not being able to work without power in his laboratory, gave himself to writing, and started drafting a book that would shatter the foundations of biology and evolutionist theories. The book was the Selfish Gene, to be published in 1976, it opened a tremendous debate between different scientific factions and philosophers in dealing with the basics of Darwinism and his survival of the fittest theories and its conciliation with altruism in species and ultimately human beings themselves.

Richard Dawkins, now a professor in Oxford, has published several books, including his best-selling last publication “The God Delusion”.
