      Louis Perry : The Genesis Hypothesis

      On Tuesday, July 9th at 7:30pm Warwick's will host Louis Perry as he discusses and signs his new book, The Genesis Hypothesis: Nature's Creation of the Heavens, the Earth, Man and His Gods. Perry is a retired physicist and lecturer at UC San Diego. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available when the book is pre-ordered from Warwick's for the event. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details.

      The Genesis Hypothesis is simple—nature created the heavens, the earth, and man and his gods. Many, maybe most people, may ask “What about a god being the creator?” To seek an answer, we will examine both what scientists have uncovered on creation and what religious narratives tell us about creation. Scientific discoveries have given insights into the creation of the universe, the earth, and biological life. And from these studies, we have learned about the evolution of Homo sapiens’s ability to conceive of god narratives that describe the creation of the universe. And from the narrative, we have learned about creation stories by gods. Thus, we have two creation stories to consider, nature and God. Nature’s story is based on observations and experiments, and religious stories are based on interpretations of supernatural religious narratives written by man. As would be expected when comparing the two creation stories based on two different authorities, there are conflicts. Using the Christian narrative as a reference, we can identify the conflicts, study and outline possible ways for lessening the conflicts. Nature’s information on the universe and religious concepts on creation will be around for many years, so it is important to learn about each, their conflicts, and possible ways to live with both.
