"God" and physics I hear that most physicists are either atheist/agnostics? What is general feeling of theists within the scientific community? Is theism considered incompatible with good science? Is atheism "intellectually honest", or would it be more of a higher intrinsic intellecutally honest value to be agnostic. To follow a life paradigm from an agnostic viewpoint? Or is this an unfair juxtaposition? Do many of you consider theism to be a hinderance to a unbiased view on cosmology and astrophysics? Last question. With the advent of Hawking's "no boundary proposal" along with what seemingly is a contradictory "timeless space" model offered is the cosmological argument for the big bang existence of God no longer a viable option? Would it be completely illogical to assume space time to be co-existant and that a "space' or even "deity" could be outside of space/time? okay real last question: Is faith in God a viable way of gaining knowledge? Or is simply enough to say all knowledge of God we gain is through the creation? ie. All we can know about God is through Scientific analysis of his creation. p.s. I'm studying to be an EE, so most of this is done from independant study and convo. Hence, I have much more questions and am interested in thoughts rather then giving my own answers.
