Many of us these days sense there is something real beyond the scope of
naturalistic science. But what? Must mental and religious lives always
remain a mystery and never become part of scientific knowledge?
In this well-argued book, physicist Ian Thompson makes a case for a
'scientific theism'. He shows how a following of core postulates of theism
leads to novel and useful predictions about the psychology of minds and the
physics of materials which should appear in the universe. These predictions
constitute a kind of 'theistic science'. It meshes surprisingly well with
the structure of reality already revealed by modern quantum field theory and
by theories of developmental stages in human minds.
The result is a serious look at a promising new rational structure
encompassing theology, psychology and physics. An integration of science and
religious theism into a science of theism (theistic science), in which both
sides keep their strengths, and are firmly and logically linked together.
