God Is A Fact About Ourselves: Nancy Abrams

Philosopher Nancy Abrams presents a radical rethinking of God for the global scientific community, ideas first expressed in her prize-winning book A God That Could Be Real. Expanding on Jung’s idea that we have a capacity for God, the use of a symbol to express the universal need for meaning, she sees God as a real and emergent phenomenon. It is up to us to tame it, as we have tamed fire, and this is a project for science. “We need to let the universe teach us about God,” she says, rather than the other way round.
