Why Science Does Not Disprove God

April 13th, 2015 by Bookslinger

Why science Does Not Disprove God, by Amir Aczel.

Based on interviews with eleven Nobel Prize winners and many other prominent physicists, biologists, anthropologists, and psychologists, as well as leading theologians and spiritual leaders, Why Science Does Not Disprove God is a “well-informed and readable” (Wall Street Journal) analysis of the religious implications of our ever-increasing understanding of life and the universe. The renowned science writer Amir Aczel (“One of our best science popularizers”—Publishers Weekly) masterfully refutes the overreaching claims of the “New Atheists,” providing millions of educated believers with a clear, engaging explanation of what science really says, how there’s still much space for the Divine in the universe, and why faith in both God and empirical science are not mutually exclusive.

Interview with the author, 40 minute podcast by John Batchelor.

That’s a relief.

Jared Hess, the Napoleon Dynamite writer and director, did another movie, Nacho Libre, about a goofy Mexican monk. The movie seemed more inspired by goofy experiences of Mormon missionaries than anything that ever happened in a monastery. One bit that was brilliant, and I expect happened to Hess himself, has the Mexican monk talking to a filthy, half-naked beggar about God, and the beggar says, “I don’t believe in God; I believe in science.” That scene comes back to mind time and again when I hear devotions to science as an alternate to God coming from the mouths of people who don’t seem to have a feeling for science or experience with it.

JM,

Me too. That scene becomes even funnier later on when it’s revealed that the “science” he believes in is little more than witchcraft. Like Jared Hess, I served a stateside Spanish-speaking mission, and I feel like a met about 30 guys just like Esqueleto
