The New Picture
This chapter argues that quantum mechanics (QM) does not prohibit divine providential action and answers to prayer. Many philosophers, theologians, and scientists—thinkers who are wholly aware of the QM revolution—still find a problem with miracles and special divine action generally. It is shown that given contemporary quantum physics, there is no sensible way to say what intervention is, let alone find something in science with which it is incompatible. The chapter concludes by addressing some other allegations of conflict between science and religion.
