Verlag: EP Books
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: If God made everything, who made God? We look in turn at the following ideas: (1) that we made God God is an invention of the human mind; (2) that God is highly improbable and therefore probably doesnt exist (this involves dealing with common misunderstandings of probability in nature); and (3) that the question is unanswerable (it isnt, providing that God is properly defined).

Inhaltsangabe: Author Bill Bryson writes: "I am immensely grateful [for the book]". Fay Weldon calls the book "Thoughtful, readable, witty, wise ..." Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, says: "... written in a very lively style and conveys complex subjects in a palatable form". The Principal of London Theological Seminary, England, declares: "Richard Dawkins has more than met his match". A book written by a distinguished scientist about the existence of God, which has chapter headings like Sooty and the universe , Steam engine to the stars and The tidy pachyderm , has to be different. It is. Addressing profound questions of science, philosophy and faith with an amazing lightness of touch, Edgar Andrews exposes the pretensions of the new atheism of Richard Dawkins and others, blending incisive arguments with gentle humour. However, the author s aim is not simply to raise a standard against the aggressive atheism of our age but to provide a logically consistent and altogether more satisfying alternative. He describes how his fellow physicists dream of discovering a theory of everything that will embrace every physical process and phenomenon in the cosmos. But he points out that there is more to existence than the material world; the things that make life worth living are mainly non-material. Can there, then, be a theory of everything that includes not only space, time, matter and energy but also the realms of the heart, mind, conscience and spirit? Yes, indeed, as this book shows. It is the hypothesis of God, a theory that, in spite of its opponents, still towers above the barren landscape of atheism and despair.
Vom Verlag: Edgar Andrews is thought-provoking, witty, extremely readable, and ultimately devastating in his critique of evolutionary atheism. He demonstrates that a right understanding of the scientific enterprise poses no threat to biblical Christianity -- indeed, that the kind of world we live in is precisely what the biblical account of God and creation would lead us to expect.
