New Post: "Does Quantum Mechanics Speak to Catholic Teaching?"

Hello all.  A new post on the Magis Center for Faith and Reason website: "Does quantum mechanics speak to Catholic teachin? II: Quantum Mysteries Intersect Theology"    I discuss how the superposition principle might yield an example, an analog for the Holy Trinity, explain with a simple example what quantum entanglement involves and how quantum mystery supports Catholic teaching.  Enjoy!  Comment!

New Post: "The Quantum Catholic: Do Quantum and Religious Mysteries Intersect?"

Hello all.  Be consoled or rejoice at last night's elections results.  It could have been worse (and it could have been better).    And now for something completely different (the Monty Python opening line):  "The Quantum Catholic: Do Quantum and Religious Mysteries Intersect?"  Enjoy

About Me

My photo

Retired, cranky, old physicist.   Convert to Catholicism in 1995.   Trying to show that there is no contradiction between what science tells us about the world and our Catholic faith.   Intermittent blogs and adult education classes to achieve this end (see http://rationalcatholic.blogspot.com/   and http://home.ptd.net/~rkurland)

Extraordinary Minister of Communion volunteer to federal prison and hospital; lector, EOMC.
Sometime player of bass clarinet, alto clarinet, clarinet, bass, tenor bowed psaltery for parish instrumental group and local folk group.

And, finally, my motivation:
“It is also necessary—may God grant it!—that in providing others with books to read I myself should make progress, and that in trying to answer their questions I myself should find what I am seeking.
Therefore at the command of God our Lord and with his help, I have undertaken not so much to discourse with authority on matters known to me as to know them better by discoursing devoutly of them.”
St. Augustine of Hippo, The Trinity I,8.
