Is There a God? offers a powerful response to modern doubts about the existence of God. It may seem today that the answers to all fundamental questions lie in the province of science, and that the scientific advances of the twentieth century leave little room for God. Cosmologists have rolledback their theories to the moment of the Big Bang, the discovery of DNA reveals the key to life, the theory of evolution explains the development of life... and with each new discovery or development, it seems that we are closer to a complete understanding of how things are. For many people, thisgives strength to the belief that God is not needed to explain the universe; that religious belief is not based on reason; and that the existence of God is, intellectually, a lost cause.Richard Swinburne, one of the most distinguished philosophers of religion of our day, argues that on the contrary, science provides good grounds for belief in God. Why is there a universe at all? Why is there any life on Earth? How is it that discoverable scientific laws operate in the universe?Professor Swinburne uses the methods of scientific reasoning to argue that the best answers to these questions are given by the existence of God. The picture of the universe that science gives us is completed by God.… (mais)

This is my first book by Richard Swinburne. As he finishes in the epilogue, he was disappointed and so am I.

Why? I didn't learn anything new in this topic.

Is there a God?

Swinburne says, yes because he postulates God as the most simple explanation. Note that, he doesn't say, you can't explain therefore God, that is simply not what he is claiming. He says there are three explanations.

a) Materialism
b) Humanism
c) Theism

Under these three, he builds his case using four criteria for justification. Ergo, he takes Theism to be necessary for Science at all. I was surprised to find Swinburne's different theological views. He agrees with darwinian evolution, (the view that life evolved through natural selection). He says it could be possible that God had used it, but when it comes to consciousness. There's where, materialists are hitting a brick wall. Interesting, isn't it?

This is a short book. It is easy to understand and follow. Gives the basics but leaves out too much to be anything more than a very short introduction. ( )
