Bahá’u’lláh and the Big Bang: Themes of Astrophysics in the Bahá’í Writings

We are pleased to announce the next talk in the “Creating a New Mind” series to be presented on Saturday January 26, 2019 at 10:30am at the Byron Public Library.

On the surface, creation stories, as found in the writings and literature of the world’s religions and belief systems, often seem to be at odds with modern science. This has been especially apparent in the ongoing controversy generated by the argument between some religious authorities and scientists studying the evolution of species. Such problems usually arise when one asserts a literal interpretation of scripture that is essentially mystical and metaphorical. Even with this in mind, the writings of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, and its authorised Interpreter, ‘Abdú’l-Bahá, on the nature of the physical universe are remarkably compatible with modern astrophysics. This interactive exploration is designed to help explore the Bahá’í writings on the topic of the physical universe and cosmology.

Geron holds a PhD in Physics and manages an industrial-academic research partnership with the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Western University developing new and better MRI scanners. He is also a member of the Bahá’í Community of London.
