He published twelve books for general audiences on physics, quantum mechanics, cosmology, philosophy, religion, atheism, and pseudoscience, including the 2007 best-seller : How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist. His final book was God and the Multiverse: Humanity's Expanding View of the Cosmos (September 9, 2014). He was also a regular featured science columnist for the Huffington Post.Audio of interview with Stenger on the podcast "Skepticality" released 28 August 2012 by the Skeptics Society.He was an advocate for removing the influence of religion from scientific research, commercial activity, and the political decision process,NEWS, Stenger, Victor J., The Fall of Foolish Faith,weblink 27 March 2014, Huffington Post, 9 March 2012, and he coined the phrase "Science flies you to the moon.

Career

Education and employment

Stenger attended public schools in Bayonne, New Jersey before going on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Newark College of Engineering (now the New Jersey Institute of Technology). He then moved to Los Angeles on a Hughes Aircraft Company fellowship, where he earned a Master of Science from UCLA in 1958 and a Ph.D in 1963, both in physics.WEB,weblink [Denver] Victor Stenger: "God: The Failed Hypothesis", Center for Inquiry, 2009-12-21, He then moved to Hawaii, where he was a member of the Department of Physics at the University of Hawaii until his 2000 retirement. He held visiting positions on the faculties of the University of Heidelberg in Germany, Oxford University (twice), and was a visiting researcher at Rutherford Appleton LaboratoryWEB,weblink Quantum Metaphysics, Colorado.edu, 2009-12-21, in England, the National Nuclear Physics Laboratory in Frascati, Italy, and the University of Florence in Italy.WEB,weblink Victor Stenger - God: The Failed Hypothesis, Point of Inquiry, 2007-03-02, 2009-12-21, He was also an Emeritus Professor of physics at the University of Hawaii, and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado.WEB, Vic Stenger,weblink Victor J. Stenger, Colorado.edu, 2008-08-19, 2009-12-21,

Scientist

Stenger's first peer-reviewed publication was in 1964, and his research career continued until his retirement in 2000. His research involved work that determined properties of gluons, quarks, strange particles, and neutrinos. Stenger focused on neutrino astronomy and very high-energy gamma rays.

Philosopher and skeptic

Stenger was an advocate of philosophical naturalism, skepticism, and atheism. He was a prominent critic of intelligent design and the aggressive use of the anthropic principle. He maintained that if consciousness and free will do exist, they will eventually be explained in a scientific manner that invokes neither the mystical nor the supernatural. He repeatedly criticized those who invoke the perplexities of quantum mechanics in support of the paranormal, mysticism, or supernatural phenomena, and wrote several books and articles aiming to debunk contemporary pseudoscience.WEB,weblink Victor Stenger, The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, 2009-12-21, Stenger was also a public speaker, including taking part in the 2008 "Origins Conference" hosted by the Skeptics Society at the California Institute of Technology alongside Nancey Murphy, Hugh Ross, Leonard Susskind, Kenneth R. Miller, Sean Carroll and Michael Shermer.WEB,weblink ORIGINS — the BIG Questions: 2008 Skeptics Society Conference: Dr. Victor Stenger, Origins.skeptic.com, 2009-12-21, Stenger debated several Christian apologists and scientists such as William Lane Craig, Hugh Ross, John Lennox and David J. Bartholomew on topics such as the existence of God and the relationship between science and religion.In 1992, Uri Geller sued Stenger and Prometheus Books for $4 million, claiming defamation for questioning his "psychic powers."NEWS,weblink Uri Geller Libel Suit Dismissed, Skeptical Inquirer, August 1994,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20080211180550weblink">weblink 2008-02-11, dead, The suit was dismissed and Geller was ordered to pay court costs.In a 2012 paper in PASA, astronomer Luke Barnes argued that many of Stenger's claims about fine-tuning were highly problematic, and that Stenger's arguments were examples of various fallacies such as "the Cheap Binoculars Fallacy" (don’t waste money buying expensive binoculars; simply stand closer to the object you wish to view).JOURNAL, Barnes, Luke, The Fine-Tuning of the Universe for Intelligent Life, Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia, June 2012, 29, 4, 529–564, 10.1071/AS12015, 2012PASA...29..529B, 1112.4647, Stenger responded, disputing Barnes' objections and reiterating: "The universe is not fine-tuned for us. We are fine-tuned to the universe" and "...no prominent physicist or cosmologist has disputed my basic conclusions. Barnes does not invalidate these conclusions and misunderstands and misrepresents much of what is in the book."ARXIV, Stenger, Victor J., Victor J. Stenger, 1202.4359, Defending The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning, physics.pop-ph, 28 Jan 2012,
