What if technological know-how itself pointed to a truth open air of house and time, and a fashion designer at the back of all that exists? In Counting to God, Douglas Ell applies the lens of mathematical research to contemporary clinical discoveries, drawing startling conclusions.
Ell makes use of scrupulous research and likelihood calculations to make a resounding case that the main complex, refined pondering in technological know-how not just makes it possible for the assumption of a designed universe, yet encourages it.
As the adage says, numbers do not lie.
An MIT graduate with a masters measure in theoretical arithmetic, Ell surveys the present nation of information in seven parts the place glossy technology helps the life of God, together with the historical past and actual legislation of the universe and our planet, the starting place and expertise of lifestyles, evolution of species, and quantum physics.
How cautious is the technological know-how? Counting to God has been recommended through a few major scientists, together with the pinnacle of the physics division at MIT.
By giving the mislead the truism that medical discoveries were contradicting the tenets of conventional faith, Counting to God presents a more impregnable beginning should you already think. while, it opens the door to a better fact, for an individual who believes in conventional technology and the facility of cause, but wonders if there will be whatever more.
I hugely suggest this considerate exploration of the relation among technology and spirituality, likely hostile descriptions of our international. Posed as a private trip, Doug asks “How will we relate the descriptions of the religious and actual worlds?” Doug takes at the greatest questions of our time: cosmology, the starting place of the universe and the biochemistry of genetics in a correct and obtainable method. no matter if you settle with him or no longer, you are going to get pleasure from and examine from this book.
