Abstract

It has always started from the premise that the pattern of scientific knowledge is incompatible with the religious one; it was assumed that the models of modern scientific Cosmology – including theories of Big Bang and, especially, M-theory – cannot be explained into a theistic version. Moreover, it has been argued that these patterns of scientist thinking (under acronym ST inside the paper) may not include even presumptively the concept of God-the Creator. Though, modern science, in her unyieldingness quest to achieve an unifying theory encompassing all human knowledge itself earned till present, can no longer ignore the answer provided by religion in the great problems of mankind, i.e. What is the universe, since when is there life, what is man? On the other hand, the religion can no longer remain indifferent and devoid of a documented response to theories of modern Cosmology; we see this in all sorts of attempts of some adventurers` theologians, who have been trying to “placate” the two visions into mixed, but inconsistent formulations (i.e. Scientific Creationism or theological evolutionism). If there are contradictions in your own thinking, blanks, incoherent ideas or inconsistent stance, we will not be able to set on the coordinates we engage in these discussions. Removing these inconsistencies may be made through theory of concomitance that I broadly sketch out here, due to the small size of the paper, while addressing the possibility of acceptance of M-theory by theology and by providing undeflective premises for strengthening of this theory of everything (TOE), a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of existence. The theory of concomitance complements and offsets the other theories addressing the relationship religion-science, but also applies to the various cosmogony and cosmological theories – i.e. Creation ex nihilo, the big bang theories and string theory – showing how it should be applied or viewed in such a theory of everything. The element of novelty brought by the present study consist the possibility of the new scientific cosmological paradigm co-habitation with the one of religious thinking consists.
