Book Description

1 Mar 2006 Is There Any Evidence for the Existence of God?
Philip Gardiner is the best selling author of The Shining Ones, The Serpent Grail and Gnosis: The Secret of Solomon's Temple Revealed. He has a degree in Strategic Marketing and several diploma's ranging in subjects from etymology to holistic medicine. He lives in the heart of Robin Hood country in the UK and travels the world on a personal quest to uncover the truth. Although he has been asked on numerous occasions to become "a member" of several institutions, Philip has strictly refused on the grounds of independence, seeing membership of certain organizations as being overtly influential on his research and understanding of the truths of mankind. Before retiring to dedicate his time to researching and writing, Philip was a Marketing Director and owner of a company in the UK. Part of this role included giving lectures on the art and history of marketing and propaganda to various organizations including certain government bodies and companies. Philip began his writing career with a book entitled, "Proof: Does God Exist?" Published in 2002 and followed this up with his best selling "The Shining Ones: The World's Most Powerful Secret Society Revealed", which become a top seller in the UK. Reality Press is proud to offer a new edition of Mr. Gardiners first book, "Proof: Does God Exist?".

5.0 out of 5 stars About Time 1 Jun 2006
Format:Paperback
About time

It is about time we had an 'on the fence' opinion, rather than either an atheist or a believer spouting their own propaganda. Gardiner has eruditely expressed what many think and dare not say in this all encompassing book that simply goes where none dare. From Christ to Chrishna, he works through the information in a challenging and in fact enjoyable way that I found impossible to put down. I fully endorse this book and would say to all people that search for truth not to look for it in fiction like the Da Vinci Code, but to seek out scholars such as Gardiner.

Also recommended: The Serpent Grail by same author and Gnosis

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - a must 5 May 2006
Format:Paperback
What with all the fuss over Jesus and Mary because of Dan Brown and the growing numbers who are suddenly taking religion seriously again it is good timing to see a balanced viewpoint arrive on the scene. Gardiner recently threw me off balance with The Serpent Grail and I have just finished Gnosis too, but this was just what I was looking for.

It's simple, but concise and leads you through a process that you would go through yourself if you had time. I really enjoyed his light humor and easy to read style so yes, I recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy 16 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
Gardiner approaches his topic under the guise of an honest appraisal of evidence for the existence of a deity. In reality, the only detectable honesty is in the closing token paragraphs: "The evidence... in this book... has been presented to twelve good people, as if they were a jury... The verdict was eight for the existence of a Biblical god..."

Gardiner's own atheistic stance however is easily discernible throughout. He presents innumerable unsubstantiated claims and presents them as facts; he makes sweeping generalisations repeatedly. For example, of Buddhist scriptures he writes, "we find that none of them can be trusted. In this Buddhism does not differ at all from any of the other religions."

In his method of asserting that there is insufficient evidence or proof to establish God's existence, Gardiner's arguments self-destruct: Gardiner brings no evidence or proof of his own claims ("91% of people read their star signs"?) and therefore his arguments and this book may be disregarded.

Sloppy thinking and sloppy writing predominate and for any but the least attentive student of philosophy or religion, the author's shallow research and understanding will be the only thing this book manages to prove conclusively. "Also his words are most often so obscure as to be able to be interpreted in any way at all." (sic)

It is a pity, because with the discipline of a careful editor, this book could have been a genuinely useful contribution to the question of God's existence. 2 stars rather than just 1, because the book does at least raise some interesting questions albeit in a condescending manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inquiring Minds Jump In! 20 Jun 2008
By Elaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Philip Gardiner figures if you're interested in this book, you have questions. He further realizes that what he has to say won't be readily accepted by a lot of people because it challenges very basic tenets of many people's lives: religion, belief, and faith He may also change your perception of god. With information ranging from quantum physics to Christianity, he explores a plethora of questions--maybe even yours! Inquiring minds go forward!

4.0 out of 5 stars The big questions 20 July 2008
By John the Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gardiner returns to some of his favorite subject matter: quantum physics, spirituality, UFOs, and unseen forces. As always, he poses a lot of questions, and expects you to pose more of your own. If this peaks your interest, check out some of his DVDs, like Keys to the Code and Quantum Mind of God.

3.0 out of 5 stars Questioning 9 Jan 2008
By M. Starkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In reading this book Gardiner seems to prove that almost nothing can be proven. Although I am a devout Christian whose solid faith did not waiver with his words, I did enjoy reading his expansive historical knowledge. He has an almost mellow may of writing about such a controversial subject. Christian may balk at his questioning but no one can question his dedication to research.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a profound question 12 Sep 2007
By June Stirling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I thought this book might have been written by a true Athiest, but in fact the author details a fascinating time line of religious history and a great number of details that have been mysteriously overlooked. Ultimately this book is about the journey inward towards true personal enlightenment and empowerment. Good read.
