 September 27, 2011 – Dr. Bernard Haisch

On September 27th, Dr. Bernard Haisch was our guest speaker. Dr. Haisch is a professional astronomer and an astrophysicist and has authored more than 100 articles in scientific journals such as Annual Reviews of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Nature, Science, Physical Review, Foundations of Physics, Annalen der Physik, Noetic Sciences Review, and the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, to name a few. Besides his academic publications, he has written two popular books presenting evidence that our multiverse was intentionally created, not formed by chance.

Astrophysicist George Ellis has written: “What is clear is that life, as we know it, would not be possible if there were very small changes to either physics or the expanding universe that we see around us. There are many aspects of physics, which, if they were different, would prevent any life at all existingŠ. We are now realizing that the universe is a very extraordinary place, in the sense that it is fine tuned so that life will exist.” There are two interpretations possible: (1) Our Universe is part of a multiverse containing vast numbers of universes which have an enormous range of properties; or (2) the laws of our Universe reflect some great intelligence. As astrophysicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.” It begins to look more likely that the creation of the Universe in the Big Bang happened for a purpose, rather than by chance. I speculate on what that purpose might be, including the necessary central role of Darwinian evolution.
