Book Description

Science and Religion Can Reconcile their Differences!



In this book, Ray Menegus, a mathematician and Christian, uses his knowledge of philosophy, science, and religion to argue the case that the apparent conflicts between Science and Religion are resolvable.
First, it is necessary for each to understand where the other is coming from, and to eliminate the knee-jerk inflammatory speech from their dialog.
Second, it is necessary for people of faith to understand some fundamental physics of nature, and to recognize that interpretation of Genesis can be framed in scientific terms.
Third, it is necessary for the scientist, who must be firmly planted in the laboratory of the real world, to recognize that there are several distinct steps in Creation that can only be explained by an overall design, whether it refers to a Designer, Creator, or God.
By flawless logic, Menegus shows three distinct times in the history of the universe when some sort of divine intervention must have occurred. These three events are difficult or impossible for the true scientist to ignore, or to explain. An analysis of these three fundamental mysteries of science form the basis for this book.
People who lean toward one side or the other, or even those that straddle the fence, will find this book serious fodder for thought and discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars and flows easily from fact to logical reasoning July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
To be honest, the reader of this book will require an understanding of physics to the high school level at least. To those who think their high school physics to be forgotten in time – forget that negativity. This book is so well written, and flows easily from fact to logical reasoning, that all your old learning will suddenly be reignited in a burst of surprise. For those Christians who anguish over the apparent anti-God nature of scientific pronouncements, read this book. To understand creation and evolution one needs to know a number of facts. To be precise, the limits of science. The author explains these in an easily read manner. If much of God is a mystery, so too are his physical laws. Whether you are an ardent creationist or an evolutionist, by the time you have read this book you will realize two things: one, that despite our incredible knowledge of creation we humans have limits to our understanding, and second, the majesty and omnipotence of God – our creator – is also beyond fully understanding. No, the book does not leave the reader still bewildered as to which is correct; the author does NOT have a dollar each way on the subject. I finished with the impression that God's Laws of Physics are as majestic and mysterious as the very nature of himself is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book August 16, 2014
By Jerry V

Honestly, a lot of the book was over my head, but captured enough of it to realize that God created a wonderful, amazing, universe and life for us, both now and forever. I really hope and pray the book will provide a bridge for those interested in science and philosophy to work together and just seek the truth

Ray Menegus’s The Three Creations is a book that addresses modern ideas about Science, God, and the origin of the universe. In particular, the book argues that Science and the idea of a Creator, far from being antagonistic ideas, are in fact sympathetic ideas. The three creations mentioned in the title refer to: the origin of the universe, the origin of cellular life (including DNA), and the origin of the human mind (or brain). The book focuses on the enduring absence of any accepted scientific models to explain the origin of these three realities, and offers evidence that all three may forever remain scientifically inexplicable mysteries, unlike other problems that science can be expected to solve within the coming centuries.

The great strength of the book is its breadth of relevant discussion about origins – including scientific, philosophical and religious considerations. Drawing from the author’s graduate training and teaching experience in science, the book presents a remarkable collection of scientific information and related philosophical questions, all related to the question: Can these three creations ever be explained by science alone? The scientific evidence and philosophical considerations presented in support will be an education for most readers; in what other single book will one read about all the following ideas?

1. Evolution as a deterministic process (“chance is not a force”)
2. The origination of all heavy elements within first generation stars composed solely of hydrogen and helium.
3. The existence of carbon (the basis for all known life) originating in our universe only when it was already billions of years old (explaining the need for our universe’s size if it were to have any carbon-based life forms).

5.0 out of 5 stars respectful presentation and defense of author's belief October 3, 2014
Verified Purchase
The author doesn't use a "down your throat" kind of writing to present and defend his reconciliation of science and religion. Instead, he chooses to elevate his ideas rather than belittle naturalists and their beliefs (or unbeliefs). A general understanding of science is helpful for some parts of the book but the author will walk you through the parts that may be beyond the understanding of some people. It was refreshing to see the parts where the author admits his own limitations in some areas.

At the start of the book, I assumed there would be a point where I would have a strong opinion in conflict with that of the author but that point never came. I'm not saying that I agreed 100% with everything that was written, but I found no significant fault in any of the arguments presented or how they were defended.

It's a good book, easy to read with short, concise chapters and an inexpensive download price. I think you'd enjoy it and appreciate the ideas presented even if you can't agree with all of them.
