Does it matter that people who have had near-heaven experiences are confused theologically, so long as good news is preached?

This issue of the journal is focused on ‘top-down (downward) causation'. The words in this title, however, already raise or beg many questions. Causation can be of many kinds.

A collection of galaxies that is a whopping four billion light years long is the biggest cosmic structure ever seen.

"I am personally persuaded that a super intelligent Creator exists beyond and within the cosmos, and that the rich context of congeniality shown by our universe, permitting and encouraging the existence of self-conscious life, is part of the Creator’s design and purpose."
