Dear Dr. Weinberg,
In your book DREAMS OF A FINAL THEORY you asserted concerning the beauty of the world and the problem of evil on page 250:

I have to admit that sometimes nature seems more beautiful than strictly necessary. Outside the window of my home office, there is a hackberry tree, visited frequently by a convocation of politic birds: blue jays, yellow-throated vireos, and loveliest of all, an occasional red cardinal. Although I understand pretty well how brightly coloured feathers evolved out of a competition for mates, it is almost irresistible to imagine that all this beauty was somehow laid on for our benefit.”

But the God of birds and trees would have to be also the God of birth defects and cancer…
Religious people have grappled for millennia with the theodicy, the problem posed by the existence of suffering in a world that is supposed to be ruled by a good God. They have found ingenious solutions in terms of various supposed divine plans. I will not try to argue with these solutions, much less to add one of my own. Remembrance of the Holocaust leaves me unsympathetic to attempts to justify the ways of God to man. If there is a God that has special plans for humans, then He has taken very great pains to hide His concern for us. To me it would seem impolite if not impious to bother such a God with our prayers.
Premature as the question may be, it is hardly possible not to wonder whether we will find any answer to our deepest questions, any signs of the workings of an interested God, in a final theory. I think that we will not.

Charles Darwin also wrestled with these same two issues (beauty of the world and the problem of suffering)

Francis Schaeffer noted that in Darwin’s 1876 Autobiography that Darwin he is going to set forth two arguments for God in this and again you will find when he comes to the end of this that he is in tremendous tension. Darwin wrote, 

At the present day the most usual argument for the existence of an intelligent God is drawn from the deep inward conviction and feelings which are experienced by most persons.Formerly I was led by feelings such as those just referred to (although I do not think that the religious sentiment was ever strongly developed in me), to the firm conviction of the existence of God and of the immortality of the soul. In my Journal I wrote that whilst standing in the midst of the grandeur of a Brazilian forest, ‘it is not possible to give an adequate idea of the higher feelings of wonder, admiration, and devotion which fill and elevate the mind.‘ I well remember my conviction that there is more in man than the mere breath of his body; but now the grandest scenes would not cause any such convictions and feelings to rise in my mind. It may be truly said that I am like a man who has become colour-blind.

Francis Schaeffer remarked:

Now Darwin says when I look back and when I look at nature I came to the conclusion that man can not be just a fly! But now Darwin has moved from being a younger man to an older man and he has allowed his presuppositions to enter in to block his logic. These things at the end of his life he had no intellectual answer for. To block them out in favor of his theory. Remember the letter of his that said he had lost all aesthetic senses when he had got older and he had become a clod himself. Now interesting he says just the same thing, but not in relation to the arts, namely music, pictures, etc, but to nature itself. Darwin said, “But now the grandest scenes would not cause any such convictions  and feelings to rise in my mind. It may be truly said that I am like a man who has become colour-blind…” So now you see that Darwin’s presuppositions have not only robbed him of the beauty of man’s creation in art, but now the universe. He can’t look at it now and see the beauty. The reason he can’t see the beauty is for a very, very , very simple reason: THE BEAUTY DRIVES HIM TO DISTRACTION. THIS IS WHERE MODERN MAN IS AND IT IS HELL. The art is hell because it reminds him of man and how great man is, and where does it fit in his system? It doesn’t. When he looks at nature and it’s beauty he is driven to the same distraction and so consequently you find what has built up inside him is a real death, not  only the beauty of the artistic but the beauty of nature. He has no answer in his logic and he is left in tension.  He dies and has become less than human because these two great things (such as any kind of art and the beauty of  nature) that would make him human  stand against his theory.

Darwin, C. R. to Doedes, N. D.2 Apr 1873 

CHARLES DARWIN’S WORDS:

But I may  say that the impossibility of conceiving that this grand and wondrous universe, with our conscious selves, arose through chance, seems to me the chief argument for the existence of God; but whether this is an argument of real value, I have never been able to decide.”

Francis Schaeffer observed:

So he sees here exactly the same that I would labor and what Paul gives in Romans chapter one, and that is first this tremendous universe [and it’s form] and the second thing, the mannishness of man and the concept of this arising from chance is very difficult for him to come to accept and he is forced to leap into this, his own kind of Kierkegaardian leap, but he is forced to leap into this because of his presuppositions but when in reality the real world troubles him. He sees there is no third alternative. If you do not have the existence of God then you only have chance.

___________

Here below is the Romans passage that Schaeffer is referring to and verse 19 refers to what Schaeffer calls “the mannishness of man” and verse 20 refers to Schaeffer’s other point which is  “the universe and it’s form.”Romans 1:18-22 Amplified Bible (AMP) 

18 For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative. 19 For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. 20 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], 21 Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor andglorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves].

Darwin and problem of suffering

Darwin, C. R. to Doedes, N. D.2 Apr 1873

“I am sure you will excuse my writing at length, when I tell you that I have long been much out of health, and am now staying away from my home for rest.

“It is impossible to answer your question briefly; and I am not sure that I could do so, even if I wrote at some length. But I may say that the impossibility of conceiving that this grand and wondrous universe, with our conscious selves, arose through chance, seems to me the chief argument for the existence of God; but whether this is an argument of real value, I have never been able to decide..Nor can I overlook the difficulty from the immense amount of suffering through the world.”

Francis Schaeffer observed:

This of course is a valid problem. The only answer to the problem of evil is the biblical answer of the fall. Darwin has a problem because he never had a high view of revelation, so he doesn’t have the answer any more than the liberal theologian has the answer. If you don’t have a space-time fall then you don’t have an answer to suffering. If you have a very, very significant man at the beginning, Darwin did not have that, but if you had a very significant, wonderful man at the beginning and can change history then the fall is the possible answer that can be given to Darwin’s 2nd argument.

I really enjoyed reading V. S. RAMACHANDRAN’s book  entitled “The tell-tale brain.”

The book ends with these words:
Charles Darwin himself was at times ambivalent about these issues.
“I feel most deeply that this whole question of Creation is too profound for human intellect. A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton! Let each man hope and believe what he can. I own that I cannot see as plainly as others do, and as I should wish to do, evidence of design and beneficence on all sides of us. There seems to me TOO MUCH MISERY in the world. I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created the Ichneumonidae [a family of parasitic wasps] with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of caterpillars or that a cat should play with mice…On the other hand, I cannot anyhow be contented to view this wonderful UNIVERSE, and especially the NATURE of man, and to conclude that everything is the result of brute force.”

These statements are pointedly directed against creationists, but Darwin‘s qualifying
remarks are hardly the kind you would expect from the hard-core atheist he is often portrayed to be. As a scientist, I am one with Darwin, Gould, Pinker, and Dawkins. I have no patience with those who champion intelligent design, at least not in the sense that most people would use that phrase. No one who has watched a woman in labor or a dying child in a leukemia ward could possibly believe that the world was CUSTOM CRAFTED for our benefit. Yet as human beings we have to accept—with humility—that the question of ultimate origins will always remain with us, no matter how deeply we understand the brain and the cosmos that it creates.

You can see above that Francis Schaeffer makes much of Romans chapter one and the universe and its form and the mannishness of man which Darwin himself recognizes above, but let me briefly discuss the problem Darwin brings up concerning suffering and the existence of evil.

The late D. JAMES KENNEDY who I had the privilege of corresponding with, agreed with Schaeffer that the key to this issue is going back to a literal perfect Garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3 when it was man’s choice to enter into a fallen state. It is there that God CUSTOM CRAFTED this world for us BUT the world we live in now is a result of the space time fall which occurred in Genesis chapter 3. As a result everything is out of order and not in the state it was originally CUSTOM CRAFTED to be.

a. Origin of evil— man’s choice- God created a perfect world…
b. Nature of God—He forgives, I John 1:9—He uses tragedy to bring us to Himself, C.S. Lewis, “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains:  it is His megaphone to arouse a deaf world.”
c. End of it all—Bible teaches that God will one day put an end to all evil, and pain and death. “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.  There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Rev. 21:4).As Christians we have this hope of Heaven and eternity.

If you like another explanation then google “Greg Koukl Bosnia Suffering.”

The answer to find meaning in life is found in putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The Bible is true from cover to cover and can be trusted. Over and over during the last few months I have provided several examples of fulfilled Old Testament prophecy in history and also the historical confirmation of details in the Bible by archaeology. Let me encourage you to go back to that evidence in the previous letters if you truly believe in the importance of forever searching it (truth) out.

Sincerely,

Physics Nobel Laureate, Steven Weinberg’s Cause of Death

 
SHARE

It is with the deepest sorrow to announce Mr. Weinberg’s death. The heartfelt news was revealed via tweeter. Steven Weinberg’s cause of death will be discussed.

For those who don’t know, he used to be a theoretical physicist and, as it was mentioned, a Nobel laureate in Physics. He won the Nobel prize due to the contributions he had with Abdus Salam and Sheldon Glashow.

The contribution was about the unification of the electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles and weak forces. He had worked at Columbia University and the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral researcher.

Mr. Weinberg once said: “With or without religion, good people can behave well, and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil – that takes religion.”

What Was Steven Weinberg’s Cause of Death?

Not a lot has been shared due to Steven Weinberg’s cause of death, but the US Day News will share more valuable details with you as soon as possible.

Some have said that he died in the ICU of a local hospital last night. This has yet not been refused nor confirmed by trustworthy sources.

The tragic news came out as Sean Carroll replied a tweet and shared: “Oh no. One of the best physicists we had; one of the best thinkers of any variety. Steven Weinberg exhibited extraordinary verve and clarity of thought through the whole stretch of a long and productive life.”

One shared a quote from him: “The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy.” – Steven Weinberg, from ‘The First Three Minutes.”

A user also shared: “One of the greatest theoretical physicists of the 20th century, a profound teacher and 1979 Physics Nobel Laureate, Steven Weinberg, has passed away today. He had the ability to write and communicate physics with utmost clarity and elegance. He will be greatly missed.”

Seamus Blackley tweeted: “The world is slightly less interesting today,” and one replied after: “RIP Steven Weinberg.”

One shared kindly: “I met Steven Weinberg in 2013 in Berkeley at the celebration of the 90th birthday of Bruno Zumino. He is a giant, and his ideas will live forever. So long.”

Sanjay Kumar also tweeted: “#StevenWeinberg is no more. one who taught physics to many went away on Guru Purnima day. shared the 1979 Nobel prize with salam and Glashow for the electroweak theory, which forms a major part of what has come to be known as the standard model of elementary-particle physics.”

One wrote: “A true renaissance person in that Steven Weinberg had many interests, not just in physics, and the skill to write well about them. R.I.P.”

Please remember that our condolences will be the only thing to get his beloveds through such difficult times. Kindly leave yours in the comment box below.

Steven Weinberg Books & Quotes; All you Need to Know

The beloved Nobel prize-winning physicist was able to write the universal textbook, using his voice to explain all the laws of nature for us in a few basic principles. He had written several remarkable books.

To name a few of his books, we can mention:

  • The First Three Minutes: A Modern View of the Origin of the Universe(1977)
  • Dreams of a Final Theory(1992)
  • The Quantum Theory of Fields(1995)
  • To Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science(2015)
  • Third Thoughts(2018)
  • Lectures on Astrophysics(2019)

It is said that Mr. Weinberg’s father mostly preferred him to follow a career in medicine; however, he, who was inspired by the popular science books of George Gamow and Sir James Jeans, decided to study theoretical physics.

“The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless”

Steven Weinberg

Mr. Weinberg had talked and written about his concerns: “Another of my concerns is the problem of infinities. When you do calculations using quantum mechanics, even when you are calculating something perfectly sensible like the energy of an atomic state, you get an answer that is infinite.”

He added: “This means you are wrong – but how do you deal with that? Is there something wrong with the theory or something wrong with the way you are doing the calculation? A lot of my work has been triggered by a concern with infinities.”

He wrote that: “Symmetry principles are principles governing the laws of nature that say those laws look the same if you change your point of view in certain ways.”

Adding that: “The classic example is Einstein’s special theory of relativity, which was based on a principle of symmetry that says the laws of nature look the same no matter how you are moving, as long as you move at constant velocity… The kind of symmetry principle I’ve been involved in is the way the observer identifies the nature of different particles.”

“Whatever the final laws of nature may be, there is no reason to suppose that they are designed to make physicists happy.”

Steven WeinbergTo Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science

He stated: “One summer I sat down and said: ‘This is the summer when I’m not going to do anything but solve that problem.’ This was 40 years ago and I haven’t solved it. No one has.”

He continued: “I thought it would be a simple matter of extending the kind of symmetry principles I used in the electroweak theory to have some kind of symmetry that involved electrons turning into muons and I could never make it work. That’s been a frustration now for 40 years.”

Steven Weinberg Religion, his Thoughts as an Atheist

As most of you may know, Mr. Weinberg was an atheist. He stated his perspectives on religion back in 1999. He lectured: “Frederick Douglass told in his Narrative how his condition as a slave became worse when his master underwent a religious conversion that allowed him to justify slavery as the punishment of the children of Ham.

He added: ” Mark Twain described his mother as a genuinely good person, whose soft heart pitied even Satan, but who did not doubt the legitimacy of slavery, because in years of living in antebellum Missouri she had never heard any sermon opposing slavery, but only countless sermons preaching that slavery was God’s will. With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil; that takes religion.”

He once said: “I’m offended by the kind of smarmy religiosity that’s all around us, perhaps more in America than in Europe, and not really that harmful because it’s not really that intense or even that serious, but just… you know after a while you get tired of hearing clergymen giving the invocation at various public celebrations and you feel, haven’t we outgrown all this? Do we have to listen to this?”

Giving his point of view on the subject, he shared: “Maybe at the very bottom of it… I really don’t like God. You know, it’s silly to say I don’t like God because I don’t believe in God, but in the same sense that I don’t like Iago, or the Reverend Slope or any of the other villains of literature, the god of traditional Judaism and Christianity and Islam seems to me a terrible character.”

He added: “He’s a god who will… who obsessed the degree to which people worship him and anxious to punish with the most awful torments those who don’t worship him in the right way. Now I realize that many people don’t believe in that anymore who call themselves Muslims or Jews or Christians, but that is the traditional God and he’s a terrible character. I don’t like him.”

Have you read any of his books? Have you learned anything from him and lectures? Do you refuse to accept his perspectives? If so, let us know via the comment box below. Your thoughts on the subject will be appreciated.

Steven Weinberg: To Explain the World

I have a friend — or had a friend, now dead — Abdus Salam, a very devout Muslim, who was trying to bring science into the universities in the Gulf states and he told me that he had a terrible time because, although they were very receptive to technology, they felt that science would be a corrosive to religious belief, and they were worried about it… and damn it, I think they were right. It is corrosive of religious belief, and it’s a good thing too.
