Miscellaneous articles by David H. Bailey

The objective of this new website is to collect high-quality, authoritative information on topics in the intersection of science and religion, and to present this information in a rigorous, well-documented manner. Topics range from the philosophy of science, Judeo-Christian theology, Biblical scholarship, creationism, intelligent design, modern physics and big bang cosmology, organized into more than 40 separate articles. Each article will be updated periodically as new results and scholarship become available. Detailed references are given in all cases.

Papers written on more technical topics, such as computer science and mathematics, may be found on my LBNL web site.

A website with numerous articles and extensive references on the general topic of science and religion is at Science Meets Religion site.
