The God Problem: An Interview with Howard Bloom

There are 1 comment on the Psychology Today story from Aug 28, 2012, titled The God Problem: An Interview with Howard Bloom. In it, Psychology Today reports that:

How does the universe account for its own creation?

Howard Bloom believes in two rules of science: Find the truth at any price-even your life-and look at the things right under your nose as if you've never seen them before.

True to the second rule, his books examine everything from bees to theoretical physics to the music industry. Is there a common thread? Insects, evolutionary particles, and pop stars, Bloom argues, are all driven by the same elemental thirst for attention and communication.

In Bloom's newest book, The God Problem: How a Godless Cosmos Creates, he takes readers through a history of scientific thought that's filled followers of his second rule—people like Albert Einstein, who took the cornerstones of science, long considered inviolable, and turned them on their heads.

What is militant or intolerant about them?
