The PositivelyGod theory grew out of author Rob Barnett’s own experience as a means of explaining the relationship between science and faith and that no true conflict exists between them. The key to understanding this relationship is to recognize the Bible as the written Word of God, far superior to any human composition, that could be understood fully only through the progressive acquired knowledge of man over time. Applied human knowledge is the best method for understanding the Bible.
The Bible is a timeless book of Law, not only the spiritual laws of God that hold sway in both the natural and supernatural realms, but also the fundamental natural laws that govern all of creation. The PositivelyGod theory harmonizes these laws with aspects of several philosophical positions (positivism, materialism, atomism) and several scientific principles (magnetism, electricity, Ohm’s law) to illustrate the relationship between positive and negative forces in the world, and how all things fit together perfectly in God’s original design. The result is a unique and innovative approach to revealing how harmony, rather than dissonance, exists between the spiritual realm of faith and the material realm of science and human knowledge.
Robert Barnett left school in the 10th grade to pursue a trade in automobile mechanics and a GED in the Job Corps. After fulfilling his childhood dream to work at the largest car dealer in the world, he moved into industrial trades in high speed printing, injection molding, blow molding machine assembly, and facilities’ maintenance specializing in recycling plastics. Having won a Quill award in 1997 for a local newspaper, he started seeking God in his life and began writing about his experiences, applying technical knowledge in doing so. He lives in South Central Pennsylvania with his wife of 28 years and four adult children nearby. He continues to pursue his dreams of being a writer and drawing closer to God.
