Freedom All The Way Up: God and the Meaning of Life in a by Christian J. Barrigar

By Christian J. Barrigar

Freedom all of the means Up proposes 4 intertwined parts that make up the which means of life—self-worth, function, id, and desire. Materialism (atheism) declare the universe has no which means, so there's no better useful tale into which we will position ourselves—we are left on our personal to build that means for our lives. Barrigar argues, although, that the universe own God’s which means and purpose—to give you the area and prerequisites wherein to result in the lifestyles of agape-capable beings in agape-loving relationships with God and with others. In influence, the universe is a smart ‘freedom method’ designed through God with freedom inbuilt ‘all the way in which up’, from the large Bang to the emergence of massive brains and unfastened will. Barrigar describes the emergence of the program via his novel agape/probability account of God’s layout for the universe, which integrates such disciplines as quantum physics, statistical mechanics, likelihood conception, evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, and video game conception. the program units up the stipulations for a basic selection among self sustaining freedom, which focuses largely on self, and agapic freedom, which focuses mostly on God and on others. Materialism chooses self sufficient freedom, yet thereby introduces nihilism into all the parts of which means. In seems that nihilism is a miles better challenge for Materialism than soreness is for Theism. against this, agapic freedom infuses self esteem, objective, id, and desire with God’s agape-love, dispelling Materialism’s inherent nihilism. Freedom the entire method Up presents a dramatic new thought for God and the that means of lifestyles in our medical and humanist age.
