If you are interested in the zero point field from someone with the scientific and metaphysical credentials, go no further. . . . If you want to put your metaphysical conception of the universe on a more solid scientific basis and/or have great discussions . . . get a little God Theory in your life. --William Arntz, Executive Producer of What the Bleep Do We Know?
Whether our world will fall apart from the excesses of religious zeal or the blind stupidities of scientific materialism is a serious question. In this tour de force, a peerless scientist presents us with a way out. --Larry Dossey, MD
The God Theory makes important inroads toward the creation of a higher-order synthesis grounded in todays most cutting-edge science. --What Is Enlightment? --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I am not an astrophysicist, or even an accomplished scientist of any kind for that matter (just a lowly computer programmer), but I have always believed that the most accurate theory for our place in the universe lies somewhere between the various flavors of the Bible and modern science. I believe wholeheartedly in The Big Bang and evolution, but I also believe in some sort of divine "creator" that experimented with creation as a way of entertaining "him"self (something had to create the matter of The Big Bang and be the catalyst for its sudden expansion).
I was reading Douglas E. Richard's "Quantum Lens" when I cam across a passage of a character explaining the zero-point energy field and Bernard Haisch's "The God Theory". I was extremely intrigued by the way that character accurately described what I had felt about our universe all along. Then, when I found out that "The God Theory" is a real book written by a bonafide astrophysicist, I bought it right away!
Reading this book has not disappointed my expectations one bit... it is utterly fascinating (albeit a bit difficult to understand the details at times)! I also like that this book in now way intends to become a new religion (like "Scientology"). Instead, it just asks us to keep an open mind to possibilities, and not to be too fanatical about what we decide upon. It's just another theory to consider.
What surprised me, is that he quotes Sir James Jeans, “The universe looks more and more like a great thought”, but he later writes, "Ultimately, however, the fullness of experience requires a realm of physical matter"... It seems to me that experience doesn't require physical matter - I have a fullness of experience in dreams and the space, time and matter of my dreams are pure thought - so if the universe is a thought, then his long foray into the topic of the zero-point field as a source of physical matter seems unnecessary. It's almost as if he can't quite escape the grip of the reductionism he (rightly) criticises, and so still needs to find a physical/mechanical basis for reality. Personally, I am convinced reality is indeed a thought - the 'I Am' experiencing who He is through/as us - and physical reality is an illusion of consciousness.
All that said, I don't expect any book on spirituality to be perfect, and this book has given some very interesting ideas to consider and provided great references for further reading, so I do recommend it.

The book is well written and easy to follow even if some of the technical terms make you continually look to the Kindle dictionary. A book that I think I will re-read in a few years. It will be interesting to see if I still have the same belief. Excellent and thought provoking.
