Recent Developments in the Astrophysics Sector

Interesting development: for 40 years cosmologists have been arguing about the best way to simulate (1) the clustering of galaxies and (2) the flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies.

On the Cosmic Background

(Presented at the ANZURA Conference in Mooloolaba QLD, October 2018) Based on a presentation at the ANZURA Conference 2018, here is another attempt to build bridges between modern science and traditional religion, concentrating mostly on their differing approaches to knowledge. Science is fundamentally about more knowledge and its test for value is how well the … read more of On the Cosmic Background.

Quivering on the Brink – The Inner World of Mankind
