PHYS 201 The Omega Point Theory: Integrating Science and Religion

The future evolution and final state of the universe in modern cosmology. The Mind-as-Computer-Program idea and the Turing Test of personhood. The universe as a computer simulation. Why is there something rather than nothing? What is free will and is it consistent with physics? Resurrection vs. soul immortality in religious eschatology. Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory as a virtual reality in the computers of the far future. Why the most fundamental laws of physics require the Final State of the universeOmega Pointto be omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and transcendent to space and time. A personal God and individual immortality as implications of reductionist scientific materialism.
