Slave Boy the Brainwashed Coward and Disgraced Former Marine, thanks for once again proving you have the intellectual capacity of mentally retarded child. I've explained to you repeatedly that Christian pseudoscience bullshit isn't science.READ "SHOW ME GOD" BY FRED HEEREN
Here's a review of this anti-science book:
I was bought this book for Christmas by my nephew. If you are hoping that this book will show you any evidence for a god, or gods, or anything else which has no evidence for it, like astrology, you will be seriously disappointed. Like all pseudo-scientific religious books, it provides no evidence that any god exists. Instead, it leaps to conclusions without providing any evidence. For example, on page 3 of the preface, the author, Heeren, claims that "A universe with a beginning requires a Beginner, making it difficult to reconcile with atheism or pantheism, while pointing most naturally to a Creator that exists outside the universe.". I have not made this up, and the book does not improve. It continues to make such outrageous claims but provides no evidence to back them.
The author uses quotes from scientists for his claims. For example, he uses Stephen Hawking's statement that: "The laws of science, as we know them at present, contain many fundamental numbers, like the size of the electric charge of the electron and the masses of the proton and the electron... The remarkable fact is that the values of these numbers seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life.". However, he does not use quotes that do not back up his claims. For example, Hawking has said that the Big Bang was the consequence of the law of gravity: "Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist,", and "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going,". Presumably, these latter quotes do not allow Heeren to "justify" his claims that a god must have created the Universe, life, and everything, so he ignores them.
Here's another review of this anti-science book:
Full-on christians won't (want to) understand what I'm talking about, so go ahead and give me that "not helpful" vote you will be dying to give me after reading what follows. Likewise, the apathetic, if they could be bothered.(By the way, I am not an atheist. However, I was at one time a christian.) For critical thinkers, and others looking to challenge their worldview, I shall continue.
"Show Me god" is a religious book masquerading as a science text. Scientific facts are falsifiable, religious dogma is not. That is, Science deals with the observable, measurable, and tangible - and will admit when it is in error. Religious dogmas are not prone to admit errors; they are about faith in things that may or may not exist, and, may or may not have happened. Religions attempt to give their adherants watertight comfort in the knowledge that their religious denomination is the truest one. Science admits it doesn't have all the answers.
This book tries to confirm and marry christianity (why not any other religion?) with Science, by using "non-sequiteurs". This is like trying to bash a square peg into a round hole. The title itself "begs the question". "Ad populum" is used, and some quotes are taken out of context. Critical thinkers can sharpen their logic and reasoning abilities by reading this book and scrutinising all the presentations. christians may want to get this book to feel good about themselves and their bogus theory known as "intelligent design".(The christian bible has two different versions of creation BTW. Read genesis chapters 1 & 2. Take notes and compare.) And for others, you may like to look into what "critical thinking" means; my sincerest best wishes to you. Deserves less than 1-star.
