Welcome to the other homepage of Arnold Benz !
I am an astrophysicist and study the Sun and how it formed together with planet Earth from an interstellar gas cloud. But I am not only a scientist. Sometimes I am amazed how the universe developed to today's diversity, or I am frightened how all that has evolved will decay in the future. Aside of my professional work, I have wondered about the Big Questions ofthe origin, meaning and goal of the cosmos.
Can we trust in the future? I find it challenging to talk to theologians, who have asked these questions since time immemorible. In these pages I summarize my thoughts and publications on the relation of science and religion.
