Aims & Scope

COMPARE is a multidisciplinary, open access, peer-reviewed journal of comparative modern universe and natural theology. It is designed to inform talented young scientists and readers about the incompleteness and limitations of contemporary theories of natural sciences and mathematics. COMPARE encourages scientists and experts from around the world to submit essays, research articles, scientific reports, and reviews about topics at the intersections between modern science and mathematics, knowable but not understood, and their possible connection to transient and eternal mysteries of divine origins.

COMPARE serves as a platform for controversies and hotly debated topics related to the harmony/disharmony of modern science with theology while fully respecting the faith of all religions worldwide.

Authors are invited to submit research articles and reviews on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • The origin, invention, and discovery of mathematics, its effectiveness/ineffectiveness in natural sciences including biology, chemistry and physics.
  • How mathematical is our universe?
  • Validities and limitations of modern scientific explorations and the current theories of natural sciences (e.g. quantum field theory, QCD, general relativity, and M-theory).
  • The universality of the fundamental constants, fine-tuning, symmetry breaking, the anthropic principle, and cosmic coincidence.
  • The origin of normal matter and the nature of dark matter and dark energy in the universe.
  • The habitability of the universe.
  • The development of organic complexities, the origin, evolution, and fate of life in our expanding universe.
  • The concepts of free-will, destiny, and mortality/immortality.
  • The origin, evolution, and the cosmic fate of mono- and polytheism, how much science is extractable from religions and scriptures, and whether these are compatible with the modern universe.

Finally, given that there are more than 4000 religions worldwide, COMPARE invite authors to address topics that promote differentiated perceptions of religious beliefs, discuss effective strategies for eradicating racism, discrimination, intolerance, and recognize the multiplicity of religions as vital for the richness and diversity of our cultural landscape.
