NO NEED FOR GOD Shows Contradictions Between Science and Catholic Beliefs
Author Peter William Clement's new book, "No Need for God" devotes itself to provide answers to the questions which people have tried to answer since the dawn of civilization: "Where do we come from?" "Where are we going to?" "What are we here for?" "What the hell's it all about?" In his belief that Catholic Theologians consciously fail to revise and rebuild the intellectual architecture of their faith and because they deliberately refuse to accommodate the discoveries of science, Clement bravely steps out to share his findings that contradicts what most theologians made all Roman Catholics believe.
Having been a student of catholic theology for more than 65 years, and having spent seven years after his retirement into scientific research, Clement asserts that learning and understanding of modern science is incompatible with the dogmas of Roman Catholicism. His arguments and his points are summed up in the part of his book that says:
"The findings of modern neuroscience prove - with carloads of experimental and observational date - that, without the material substrate of the brain, there can be no consciousness: that is, there can be no soul that survives the death of the body. The correlative point is that we now have empirical proof that 'God' did not magically inject a supernatural soul into a single-celled zygote at the precise moment of its conception - because there is no such entity. Catholic Theologians cannot recognize the truth empirically demonstrated by modern neuroscience - the fact that there is no such entity as a supernatural soul. Their only recourse is to maintain a policy of inflexible obscurantism - in plainer words a 'theology' of systematic prevarication."
