The Omniscience of God and the Domain of Its Applicability

Many theologans have stated that because God is "omniscient" (All-Knowing) and "omnipresent" in His infinite power then this somehow means that His Knowledge and Presence extends into the future indefinitely. God is regarded as a Being existing outside of all Time - including the past, present and future although His actions can affect all of these aspects of time. This has created strong debates over the centuries about the implications for human pre-destination and free-will. If God "knows" what human beings are going to do many years in the future, then do human beings really have any free choice? Some have managed to resolve this dilemma for themselves, but the author of this brief paper still sees the "future knowledge" of God with respect to human actions, as a proxy form of pre-determination. Where is the free-will and responsibility?

Completing Epistemology: the Utility of Transcendence as a Tool in Scientific Theory Formation

Authors: Richard L. Amoroso
Comments: 12 Pages.

Human epistemology has steadily evolved from dark ages of superstition through enlightened periods of logical reason to the current pragmatic age of empiricism. Now another Galilean class revolution completing epistemology by integrating Science and Theology (S&T) utilizing transcendence seems immanent. S&T represent opposite ends of a long continuum of schools of thought rather than mutually exclusive disciplines as often believed. To implement the required paradigm shift an integrative noetic science must include an adequate understanding of Transcendence. Over 2,000 years ago the Greek philosopher Plato considered this type of noetic insight.
