A life-time of study and twenty-one years of in-depth practice in Native American thought, Japanese Zen, Taoist Qigong (Ch'i Kung) Neikung and practices in the arts of Kundalini and Shushumna energy, have brought me to finally reading this book.

I am, obviously, a mystic to a high degree. Having spent many years sitting most literally in the moment before the Big Bang, my nature and understanding of Nothing or Emptiness is all but definable.

Mr. Haisch allowed me to have faith in one thing after having read his book: That there are scientists who actually think both with their mind and with wisdom. Bernard Haisch has wisdom¿A rare trait within much of the scientific community. I can say this as I have been surrounded by scientists most of my life.

Mr. Haisch¿s description of Zero Point Energy and its affiliation with the "Is Potential" is identical with that experienced to me in meditations and journeys with energy work.

The humor he uses in his writing defines Mr. Haisch as malleable and willing to think outside of the orthodoxies of science. Most refreshing. Bernard Haisch allows himself to see the possibilities of the human experience instead of locking himself in a pre-defined box of lifeless gadgets.

I find this book to be well written and understandable (inasmuchas astrophysics in understandable). However, this author sometimes goes on and on discussing a point only to refute it outright with one or two unsubstantiated statements. There are pertinent assumptions and questions that this author fails to explore. Nevertheless, this book and it's revelations have both validated my own thoughts and taught me revealing and interesting things that I plan to interrogate further.

This book finally reconciled science and God for me. Basically the book is about what comes first consciousness or matter. It makes very good case against micro engineering of creationism and claim of scientism that only science can describe reality. Also highly recommend books by modern bible scholar Marcus Borg, where he talks about meaning of bible text¿from metaphorical and historical point of view and ¿The Doors of Perception¿ by Aldous Huxley about his mystical expiriences. Don't stop to seek:)

Would that Dr. Haisch had stayed in his field of expertise, astronomy, and used the powers of scientific enquiry and logic at his disposal, perhaps he would not have come to the erroneous conclusions that he did. First and foremost, he errs in state that "While scientific orthodoxy boasts no churches, it is nonetheless a faith - a faith whose ritual is skepticism." He seems to forget that the objective of science is to question all hypotheses until satisfactory and repeatable proof has been provided. Skepticism is what allowed him to become the acclaimed astronomer he is! Take skepticism away from science and you are left with ... Faith! Unquestionable, improvable, unreliable and totally unscientific. Take, for example, his 'if-then' proposition on pages 66-67: "If consciousness underlies the universe, and your own consciousness is capable of seeing into or communicating with other levels of consciousness, then what people, especially mystics, have seen and experienced does constitute real data. In this view, we are all little pieces of the same consciousness that has deliberately fragmented itself so that you can be you and I can be me. This is the essence of the God Theory." By ASSUMING that his two "if" statements are true and unassailable, he proceeds to his "then" statement as a logical conclusion and the basis for his whole theory. But it is, in fact, not a scientific theory, since to become a theory, in science, the theory must begin as a "model" and cannot proceed to a "theory" until it has been thoroughly empirically and riskily tested, and show itself to be useful. Hence, he elevates his untested "model" of God to the status of "theory", belying his use of faith as the support of his argument rather than logic and the scientific principle. Interestingly, Dr. Haisch cites only 24 books from a mere 20 authors in his failed God Theory. This is a good read for those who want to see the use of pseudo-scientific principles, pseudo-logic and scientific wording to obfuscate the real issue: the lack of support for his failed hypothesis.

I found the premisse of.this book refreshing and thoughtful, parting the waters of dogma, both ancient and modern-day.

I found this book to be more of an autobiography than anything else. It is interesting but don't buy it for education or research. The actual theory could have been written in about 10 pages. I like his theory. I wish he would have expanded it somewhat.
