Science and Religion—Toward a Larger Picture (and How Creative Systems Theory Gets Us Very Close)

posted in: Big Picture Theory | 0

In my recent book Quick and Dirty Answers to the Biggest of Questions, I describe how Creative Systems Theory helps us address all manner of “ultimate questions”—big picture concerns that in times past have tended to leave us baffled. In other articles and podcasts I’ve expanded on a couple examples touched on in the book, making sense of free will (see “‘Come On” Stephen Hawking: The Quandary of Free Will In an Apparently Deterministic Universe”), and how we best think about the whole shebang, existence in its entirety (see The “Big Band Theory”–Creative Systems Theory Takes On Existence As a Whole). Here we apply CST to the question of how science and religion ultimately relate.
