The Big Bang and Relative Immortality: Seminal Essays on the Creation of the Universe and the Advent of Biological Immortality
This series of brief and sparkling philosophical essays explores the Principle of Continuity as it impacts discussions of the Big Bang and the expansion of the universe, God, infinity, biological immortality and evolution. From Ancient Greece to the frontiers of modern science, some egregious blunders have been made in both philosophy and in theoretical physics. The old theory of Continuous Creation was blown up by the Big Bang theory, but the author shows that this is just another ontological quagmire that conflicts with the First Law of Thermodynamics (conservation)OCoand common sense. Surveying scientific principles, he discerns where they can and cannot illuminate our understanding."
