CHRIS STREET   From ATHEISM UK.

“POETIC NATURALISM EXPLORED”

“Naturalism” is the idea that there is only one world.  The Natural world, which follows the laws of nature and which can be investigated by scientific methods. The term “Poetic Naturalism” was introduced by theoretical physicist Sean Carroll in his 2016 book The Big Picture. In his book he explores humanity’s big questions including the origin of life, meanings in life and the origin of the universe.  Poetic Naturalism accepts that traits of our everyday godless world can emerge from, and can fit together with, causes at the fundamental “Core Theory” physics level.

Chris Street is a life-long atheist and has been president of AtheismUK since June 2014.  He has been a committee member of Dorset Humanists since 2007. In 2015 he was awarded a Master of Science in Medicinal Chemeistry.  He has worked in commercial roles for much of nhis career and more recently in teaching and tutoring science and mathematics.
