In 1978 Jastrow it published the definitive report of the NASA, making an impression to the public with the announcement of which the open model probably correct era. The 25 of June of that same year, Jastrow wrote on its discoveries in the New York Times magazine: ” This it is a strange, beside the point unexpected development by all, less by the theologians. They always have accepted the word of the Bible: ” In God principle created the sky and the Earth “. For the scientist who has lived with his faith in the power of the reason, history finishes as to an evil dream. It has scaled mountains of the ignorance; it was on the verge of conquering the highest point; and while it was pushed to arrive at the final rock, it was received by a band of theologians who been there have seated by siglos”. The Dr.
James Trefil, a physicist of the University of Virginia, independently confirmed the discovery of Jastrow in 1983. Doctors John Barrow, astronomer in the University of Sussex, and Frank Tipler, a mathematician and physicist in the University of Tulane, published similar results in 1986. Genesis Confirmed In the meeting of the American Astronomical Society in 1990, professor John Mather of the University of Columbia, an astrophisicist who serves like member of the Goddard Center of the NASA, presented/displayed ” the test more grande” of the existence of an open universe. In agreement with the reporter of the Boston Globe that covered the conference, professor Mather was received between great applause, which took to the president of the meeting, the Dr. Geoffrey Burbridge to comment: ” It seems very clear that the public is at least in favor of the book of Genesis -, the first versicle seems to have been confirmado”. In 1998, doctors Ruth Daly, Erick Guerra and Lin Wan of the University of Princeton, announced the American Astronomical Society: ” We can affirm with 97,5% of security that the universe is going away to expand by siempre”. Later in that year, the Dr.
Allan Sandage, a famous astrophisicist of the equipment of the Institute Carnegie de Washington, was mentioned in the Time New Republic saying: ” Big bang better is understood like a miracle triggered by some type of being able trascendental”. The columnista of the Newsweek magazine, George Will began its column of the 9 of November of 1998 with the following title: ” Next, the American Union of Civil Liberties or some similar group of secular litigants, is going to present/display a lawsuit against the NASA, being blamed them of which the space telescope Hubble, unconstitutionally it gives well-being him religiosos”. Permission To believe That same year, the Newsweek magazine reported an unexpected turn in the opinion of ” sometimes enthusiastic agnsticos”: ” forty percent of the American scientists now believes in a personal God – not necessarily an indescribable power present in the world, but a deity to that him rezan”. It is clear that there is mathematicians, physicists, astronomers and cosmologist whom they prefer not to believe in God. By a variety of reasons, they prefer to think in that new natural laws are going to be open pies, or that a new evidence is going to appear and to revert the present model of an open and created universe. For many, in the scientific community, the evidence is persuasive. For others, modern cosmology offers a permission to believe to them.
