Can the existence of God be proven by science? The answer will still surprise you. Since the advent of science in the 16th century, it has navigated mankind in the direction of mechanistic materialism, and as a consequence to atheism.

Since the beginning of the 20th century this direction has changed. Relativity and quantum physics, in conjunction with Big Bang cosmology, laid the foundation for a revolution in physics, in what became labelled as the “New Physics”. Subsequently during the 1970’s it was discovered that the universe, at every level and from its first billionth of a second at the time of its creation, was mysteriously fine-tuned.

This fine-tuning comprises the inexplicable and delicate balance of the four fundamental forces that rule the universe: gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and the weak nuclear forces. This discovery implies that even the most basic building blocks of matter, such as atoms and its sub-atomic particles, can only exist by the grace of an inexplicable, complex and delicate balance between these forces. The chance that this fine-tuning could have emerged spontaneously and fortuitously, is not only improbable, but utterly impossible.

Intelligence or Chaos elucidates that the complexity and fine-tuning of the universe can only be explained by the presence of an all-pervasive intelligence, the source and reservoir of the Information that actually guides and controls the universe. For the first time in history such a conclusion is confirmed by indubitable scientific evidence.

The existence of an all-pervading intelligence, as expressed in the principle of fine-tuning, is also at the core of the ancient Vedanta philosophy of India. The author explores how Vedanta disentangles some of the paradoxes encountered in quantum physics and major cosmological questions such as the Big Bang and its origin. Using the latest empirical and scientific evidence Intelligence or Chaos clearly shows that the universe is ruled by intelligence and information, and not by chance and chaos.


Henk Keilman was born in the Netherlands on Oct 7, 1953. From the age of 15 he had a strong philosophical inclination and interest in the existential questions of life. He spent many years studying western philosophy, the philosophy of science, and Indian philosophy. Travelling several times to India, he became intrigued by the Vedanta philosophy and its comprehensive explanation about the mystery of existence and the complex nature of the universe. He found the Vedantic explanation of the theodicy, or the problem of evil, brilliant and utterly convincing. The marriage of science and philosophy with mysticism and spirituality was an eye opener. In a world increasingly dominated by nihilism, skepticism and the belief that truth is either unreachable or incomprehensible Henk is convinced that the need for a new paradigm is well overdue.
