The Statistical Theory of Everything (STE)

On November 11 2013 the STE below was the number one book on Agnosticism on Amazon.com. Wow! And to think it was simply an outgrowth or worldview that evolved from  The 12 Unthinkable Horrors of Human Existence. In vact, this is one of the concepts that the STE teaches–that all things are possible!

Also, that many times, one event leads to unintended consequences–both good and bad. Sad to say but we can only learn from the bad and enjoy the good (as we bask for fleeting moments to the far right of the STE happiness line.

After 8 months the Statistical Theory of Everything is number one on Amazon !

The Statistical Theory of Everything: It Explains Everything and is Never Wrong

The Statistical Theory of Everything: It Explains Everything and is Never Wrong

This short Kindle book is for non-believers, including atheists, agnostics and secular humanists. It is assumed that you don’t base your worldview and morality on superstition, the supernatural or any deity. It is not for the spiritual but not religious as it takes a very deterministic and reductionist perspective on the human condition. It is not meant to convert the faithful. However, it could help you prosper if you do not believe the universe or a personal deity loves you and is concerned with your daily affairs.
This concept is not to be confused with Stephen Hawking’s The Theory of Everything (2007), a unified theory that includes quantum mechanics and the fundamental interactions of nature: gravitation, strong interaction, weak interaction, and electromagnetism. That’s very interesting, but another subject altogether.
Again, this Theory is not about physics.
The Statistical Theory of Everything (STE) presents a novel and useful thought process to help you manage and thrive in a world of science, reason and rationality. It is excerpted and expanded from my book the 12 Unthinkable Horrors of Human Existence. Think of the STE as a thought experiment. It is related to a concept called “statistical theology” discussed in a short article in Skeptical Inquirer (2001) by noted science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. It offers a unique worldview to free will, chance events, agenticity, patternicity, the supernatural and a personal God.
This would be a great concept to discuss during a Freethought Alliance or Secular Humanist study group. I don’t expect universal agreement and encourage debate. Does it have merit? Does it help you deal with a capricious and uncaring universe that is indifferent to your well-being? Personally I think this concept provides those who lack faith, with optimism, hope, and purpose. And that is different from faith.
Please read the Kindle sample first and the Table of Contents to see if this concept is something that interests you before you purchase the book. If you enjoy the book and feel it was worthwhile please share it with your friends and feel free to review it. Reviews are the lifeblood of Kindle authors. May you find yourself at the very right of the Statistical Theory of Everything line for love, health and happiness.
