Part 2: What Happens Next - Implications for Theology

In this lecture I speculate on how science may evolve in the future to close more gaps in our understanding of the world, and the theological implications of a future where science can give a more complete account of nature, life, and personhood.

It is not necessary to view lecture one before this one.

  • A simplistic science does not capture all phenomena equally well
  • Much of the world is dynamical, and has emergent properties
  • Where science is probably heading: emergence and dynamical systems theories
  • Terrence Deacon at UCB
  • Implications for Theology
  • Implications for the concept of Nature
  • Implications for the concept of Personhood
  • Implications for the concept of Creation
  • Slicing it differently: Before, with gaps
  • Slicing it differently: After, seamless.
  • Conclusion
  • Q&A
