  •  An interesting book (6+ / 0-)

    By the man who lead the NIH effort

     The Language of God

    Dr. Collins' book might cause head explosions in a great variety of people. Raised an atheist and home schooled, he started out studying astrophysics and finished his course work for a doctorate before switching to medicine in search of something more emotionally satisfying.

    And subsequently converted to Christianity.

    But he believes in Darwinian with all his heart.

    So, all those who think that no one can possibly believe if they understand science - pop.
    All those who think that evolution is fundamentally incompatible with the Bible - pop.
    Those who think no one is ever really an atheist and then converts - pop.
    Those who think that only fundamentalists home school - pop.

    Aside from the head explosions it's an OK book but not a great one.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; but in practice, there always is a difference. - Yogi Berra
