Harv,

Just after I apologize for attempting to combine religion with known science, in a post below, in response to your view that this is a negative aspect of religion, I read the above post in which you do exactly that. Applause...

I of course also believe in all that you have said, including guided evolution, and the symmetry of creation and re-creation.

I would be inclined to throw in reincarnation as a form of spiritual/physical re-creation and soul evolution. And I would be inclined to illustrate universal re-creation using the Black Hole creation process of Smolin. I imagine that the good spirits of this universe gather in supermassive black holes to become gods of the baby universes. But do not make that into dogma. It may be just a mechanistic metaphor.

The scientific gems of scripture include the Bagavatum description of the creation of a sequence of universes out of a cosmic egg (e.g., the black hole) each being the size of a mustard seed. So based on the recommendation of Moses (in the Talmud) to look for the underlying principles that unite the contradictions of laws or commandments, I propose that a synthesis of all scripture with known science gives us a metaphor worth believing in. But not a dogma- for science of the unknown is apt to change.

Richard
