Christopher Knight discusses his latest book God’s Blueprint: Scientific Evidence that Earth was Created for Humans. God’s Blueprint puts the idea of God on trial. Whilst the issue has been hotly disputed over recent generations with scientists on one side and theologians on the other, evidence either way has been thin on the ground. Faith – belief without evidence – has been the basis for the world’s major religions. Most scientists reject the notion of God because they require factual, empirical evidence in order to accept any proposition as being real. However, new information is emerging which appears to suggest that there is underlying intelligence and purpose within the universe.
When examined closely, the very existence of life and even the universe itself seem extremely unlikely. The slightest deviation in the so-called laws of nature and none of it would be possible. Mainstream science maintains that this is little more than a happy accident, but the more we learn about life, the universe and everything, the more mysterious it all becomes, and the more it looks like someone – or something – set it all in motion. Setting aside the dogmas of both science and religion, God’s Blueprint asks whether everything we think we know is wrong, and whether the subtle realms of reality carry a message for humanity whose time has come.
