E-mail from Ron Pearson to Rev. Tim Ling (January 27, 2003): New Physics Could Support the Church
Dear Rev. Tim Ling, Vicar at St. Swithun's Church Bathford,
I promised to let you see two manuscripts and will let you have these. One is a paper fully peer-reviewed and published in the scientific journal, "Frontier Perspectives", Spring/Summer 1997 entitled, Consciousness as a Sub-Quantum Phenomenon and the other is the pamphlet The Academy of Survival Physics. The point I am trying to make is that much more is needed than Dr Carey's "Decade of Evangelism" if the decline of the Church is to be arrested and reversed.
My own physics gives proof on two levels that consciousness survives death of the body and that the universe was deliberately created. Since these are two main tenets of the Christian religion a bridge can now be offered between science and religion which, when accepted, will be beneficial to both disciplines. It will replace the antagonism that has prevailed for so many centuries. One level is a mathematically based theory (see Frontier Perspectives though the actual maths is not included) that solves some major problems in physics but shows that mind is part of a background medium, not the mere brain function insisted upon by established physics.
It is because of this major false paradigm that the theoreticians are unable to produce solutions. The other level is experimental observation. An overwhelming amount of evidence has been building for over a century proving that mind is immortal and is summarised in the Academy pamphlet.
Unfortunately instead of changing the physics to accommodate this new knowledge the established physicists have been attempting to discredit this information since they perceive it as a threat to theories they seek to retain. I still think the Church has value for most people, or would have if only its teachings were brought up to date: to fall into line with revised modern scientific knowledge. The point is that it would have been impossible to describe the absolute truth to people of the bronze age because they would not have understood.
Now that people can relate to greater sophistication more details need incorporation and the offensive sections like, "Never suffer a witch to live" or "resting in peace until judgement day", can be removed. They could not have been taken out in earlier times since any change could have threatened faith.
But with proof offered faith is supported and is therefore no longer threatened by revision. If a religion remains stagnant in the present era then it cannot survive. It needs to change to an evolving system, just like science, with more refinement of concepts of basic reality in step with the people's ability to comprehend its meaning. I can furnish further information about the numbers of the clergy who support this by reference to the work of a friend of mine and will quote from a recent E-mail he sent yesterday if you show further interest.
It is pertinent to note that Dr Habgood, a physicist as well as a bishop, was very much with us on this and would have put through the necessary reforms if Margaret Thatcher had not interfered with the majority choice of the clergy and put Dr Carey in charge in his place. She effectively stifled progress here.
What is really needed is a full discussion of the implications all this represents. The question I would like to ask is this. If you agree that this kind of information would help would you be prepared to communicate this to the new Archbishop, Dr. Williams, to see whether a useful interaction could be organised?
