    Very good speech prof !!
    I’m a muslim and we have some similar things in the Quran one of them that God has created the univers in 6 days.
    But the different is that we only have one book that every muslim read and believe? in.

    Perhaps a thousand years from now, future generations will also call us ignorant,and our science and technology obsolete.The first thing a scientist needs to understand is that even though we know a lot,we dont know everything and that because we havent discovered something doesnt mean it doesnt exist. You can blame God? for the laments of humanity and deny his existence because of them,but who enslaves others?? The SUVs and theflat screen the TVs and the iPods are the result of others; suffering

    Professor I have to say that I? love all your videos. I am a Bio major and all your lectures have been very helpful. I believe that science can not explain everything. Sometimes, instead of being a tool to understand the world that surrounds us, it is a blindfold that prevents us to see beyond what others discover and understand. I believe that God created the universe through a process that we now call evolution and that science can only help us understand part of that mystery. Thank you.

    You speak about the universe? at the time of the big-bang and you say that it was a spec, a concentrated energy. But that point was all that there was. You cannot say that about the universe because that was all that existed. You cannot say it was a spec, it was concentrated because concentration is about how relative that spec is to the “outside” and there was no outside.

    word? Dr Fink!

  9. KalimaShaktide says:

    The bible is not an historical document. The Abrahamic religions are variations of previous older religions and the real purpose of religion in history has been to control ignorant men until science started to explain the world and nothing in the bible or torah has had any archeological or historical proofs.

    The Bible is not a moral book when its god kills innocent children and allows slavery.

    With Respect, religion is Schizophrenia, i.e. the belief? that things that are not real exist.

    I must say that Professor Fink’s talk is inspiring, true to heart, like it very? much.

  11. professorfink says:

    There IS a “Philosophy of Science”. And like all philosophies (world views), it is built-on non-provable axioms (assumptions or “givens” as in Geometry). These include that there is a Natural Order to the Universe; that there is a causal? relationship? behind events & that the World is Knowable to us (epistemological positivism).

    Further, science can only “prove” a “negative” relationship, it can not “prove” a positive relationship.

    Job 36:26 Behold, God [is] great, and we know [Him] not, neither can the number? of his years be searched out. Psalms 145:3 Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised! His greatness is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28 Haven’t you known? Haven’t you heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, The Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t faint. He isn’t weary. His understanding is unsearchable Science in my opinion is a small window to the vast knoledge of God.

    Can science not elucidate ethical decisions made through rational discourse?
    As I point-out in the video, science is intrinsically “amoral” — devoid of values.
    Science & Technology? have been used for both “good” and “evil” purposes (even today).
    Science & Technology are tools to explain how the world works and make predictions.
    Science may “elucidate” what the consequences of our decisions might result in,? but does not provide the “values” needed for us to make a “wise” choice.
    Thank You

    I enjoyed your other videos on the cell membrane potential and the action potential. However while I can support your version? of NOMA, there is a bit of a problem I have with the idea that morality can only come from religious teaching. Can science not elucidate ethical decisions made through rational discourse? As well as this, I would like to point out that while science does not have the answers now, it does not say it will not have the answers later, a bit of a “god of the gaps” problem.
