A SCIENTIST’S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE
Thousands of individuals have had near-death reports, yet scientists have argued that they're most unlikely. Dr. Eben Alexander was once a type of scientists. A hugely knowledgeable neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs consider genuine, yet are easily fantasies produced by means of brains less than severe rigidity.
Then, Dr. Alexander’s personal mind was once attacked via an extraordinary disease. The a part of the mind that controls notion and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down thoroughly. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his medical professionals thought of preventing therapy, Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had get back.
Alexander’s restoration is a scientific miracle. however the actual miracle of his tale lies in other places. whereas his physique lay in coma, Alexander journeyed past this global and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the inner most geographical regions of super-physical life. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine resource of the universe itself.
Alexander’s tale isn't really a myth. earlier than he underwent his trip, he couldn't reconcile his wisdom of neuroscience with any trust in heaven, God, or the soul. this present day Alexander is a physician who believes that real wellbeing and fitness may be completed simply after we detect that God and the soul are genuine and that loss of life isn't the finish of private life yet just a transition.
This tale will be extraordinary irrespective of who it occurred to. That it occurred to Dr. Alexander makes it innovative. No scientist or individual of religion could be capable of forget about it. interpreting it is going to swap your lifestyles.

Gott oder Darwin?
Widersprechen sich die Bilder der Religionen und die Theorien der Naturwissenschaften oder sind sie komplementäre Darstellungsweisen einer Wirklichkeit? Während Naturwissenschaften beschreiben, wie sich die Welt entwickelt hat und kausal den Wirklichkeitsprozess erklären, geben Religionen jeweils eine Antwort darauf, wozu die Welt geschaffen wurde, und beschreiben sie teleologisch.
Das Buch „Gott oder Darwin?" spannt einen Bogen, der eine konstruktive Auseinandersetzung von Schöpfung und Evolution ermöglichen soll. Die Beiträge namhafter Vertreter der Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften belegen, dass Schöpfung und Evolution keine Gegensätze sein müssen, aber verschiedene Intentionen verfolgen und Bilder prägen. Trotz dieser Unterschiedlichkeit verbindet sie die Erkenntnis, dass Grenzüberschreitungen zu Verzerrungen führen, die den jeweiligen Ansprüchen nicht gerecht werden.
Evolution und Schöpfung im konstruktiven Dialog
