America today is faced with a great number of concerns. One of the larger ones is the role of religious thought and practices in our everyday lives. Issues such as abortion, Intelligent Design, and the moral and ethical impact of technology on its citizens weigh heavily on almost all of us. These issues predominate both the front pages and the op-ed pages of our newspapers. They fill the news media on both television and the net. They created heated arguments in almost every community in our world, often leading to open conflicts between friends and even family members. Religion and faith are in conflict within the hearts and minds of educated people exposed to more and more information. Science has marched directly into realms covered by faith, leading to great angst within people who try and balance their “Church” mind with the secular world. Nowhere is this conflict more apparent than in the issues generated in the reconciliation of theology and modern science. As cosmology crossed over into the sacred ground of the Creation with the discovery of the Big Bang, scientists themselves discovered that they had come face to face with the questions around the existence of God, the Creator, and his role in Creation. While most of the general population believes that scientists are atheists, and that the basic tenets of theology and science are antithetical, the opposite is actually closer to the truth. There is a ground where science and theology can, and must, share thoughts. Scientists like Einstein and Hawking speak of trying to “understand the mind of God” and make bold conjectures as to whether or not God had any choices in his design of the Universe. This book attempt to build a bridge from Science to Faith and back, and opens the mind of the Child and the Mind of Man in an attempt to relate them both to the Mind of God.
