Chapter 9: Fundamental Physics

Section 5: Ultimate Models for the Universe


Theological implications [of ultimate models of physics]

Some may view an ultimate model of the universe as "leaving no room for a god", while others may view it as a direct reflection of the existence of a god. In any case, knowing a complete and ultimate model does make it impossible to have miracles or divine interventions that come from outside the laws of the universe—though working out what will happen on the basis of these laws may nevertheless be irreducibly difficult.
