Inhaltsangabe: In this revolutionary and provocative book, award-winning author David A. Shiang claims to offer final answers to many of humankind's most enduring mysteries, including the problem of regret, the free will problem, and the nature-nurture controversy. He argues that Einstein was right in rejecting quantum theory, and he shows that Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Brian Greene (The Fabric of the Cosmos) are mistaken in saying that evidence shows nature to be inherently probabilistic. The author also takes on Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) and Daniel Dennett (Breaking the Spell), contending that Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is neither scientific nor correct. He joins the debate about God from a highly controversial perspective, arguing that design, not chance, is the hallmark of nature. Odds are high that the logical and elegant solutions Shiang presents to our deepest riddles will cause you to rethink your most fundamental beliefs. Offered in the book: The solution to the free will problem Why Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection isn't science (using Sagan's rules) Why John Allen Paulos (Innumeracy) needs a lesson in logic and critical thinking Why the mathematical certainty of Richard Dawkins is pure illusion How to eliminate regret in one easy step Dawkins makes the imposing claim that Darwinian natural selection is an established fact, but this ridiculous pronouncement indicates that a leading scientist can be quite mistaken as to what actually qualifies as science. It also shows that Dawkins does not understand Dennett's discussion of actualism in Darwin's Dangerous Idea, even though Dawkins extols the work of his fellow bright by calling the book surpassingly brilliant. How could Darwinism be an established fact if actualism demolishes and annihilates it? - from the book
