Coat of arms of Swedish Parliament
The opening of Swedish Parliament Riksdag traditionally includes divine service in Stockholm Cathedral Domskyrkan. The preacher this year is Pentecostal preacher Niklas Piensoho.
Signe Hassler reports that Swedish humanists arrange an alternative for the Parliament opening service in a local restaurant. Professor Ulf Danielsson speaks there about scientific creation stories.
I stället för att få lyssna till predikan från pingstpastor Niklas Piensoho så har Humanisterna anlitat Ulf Danielsson, professor i astrofysik som ska tala om den vetenskapliga skapelseberättelsen.

Ulf Danielsson (1964) is Professor of Theoretical Physics, Decan and Vice President of Uppsala University.
It is significant that this eminent professor has accepted invitation by Swedish humanists to speak in a setting where Astrophysics are presented an alternative to Christian worship of God of Israel, the only real God there is.
Top scientists believe or do not believe just like the rest of humanity and Sweden watches over freedom of religion, even freedom from religion.
This high-profile political provocation underlines the significance and even urgency of themes that I from my part have raised in Astrotheology (Space Theology) blog postings. For nothing in the subjects dealt so far contradicts the claim made by the God of Israel that He has created everything, including Ulf Danielsson.
