Synopsis: It is absurd to speak of a so-called 'existence of God', since to exist etymologically means 'to come forth into time' and Time, like existence, itself is a result of Divine creation. One should speak of 'proofs of God', and not of His existence. It is essential to understand that Time does not flow from the past towards the future, but from the future: the To-Come, where God absconds, into the past. Einstein's interpretation of a 'space-time' is consequently not a generalization of space, but of Time, and ought rather to be called Time-Space.
Whereas Physics is the science of the Commensurable, metaphysics is the Science of the Incommensurable. Philosophic and religious thoughts are complementary and therefore not contradictory. Science does not make religious thought obsolete. Yet their complementary nature cannot be overcome other than within the frame of an authentic mystique.

About the Author: The Author: André Mercier, born 1913 in Geneva, studied geology to begin with, then mathematics, physics, and philosophy. Further studies in Paris (pupil of Elie Cartan and Louis de Broglie) and in Copenhagen (pupil of Niels Bohr and Jörgen Jörgensen). Then assistant at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and simultaneously lecturer at the University of Geneva. Thereafter professor of theoretical physics and philosophy at the University of Berne, Switzerland.
Member of numerous national and international learned Societies and Academies, he was made a Knight of the Danebrog and received a Dr. honoris causa from the C.H.-University of Peru.
