1.0 out of 5 stars I truely hope this book is meant to be a parody... 24 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
I'm sure I wasn't the only one who observed the cleverness of the title; "attempted murder" when of course to 'murder' something, it must first exist in the first place. Indeed, it's not just the title of this book that this assumption is made, many times throughout the writer repeatedly uses terms like "create" and "design" when surely the whole premise of the book is proving the existence of a creator/designer, so it's pretty easy to come to the conclusion such a being exists, when you've already used such words in your questions and premise.

Arousing suspicion from the early pages, i started to wonder if this book was meant to be something as defined by Poe's law:
"it's hard to identify a parody of a crackpot, since they seem equally insane"
and having read the book completely, I can honestly say I am no more enlightened as to which it is.

If it is a parody of creationist reasoning, half truths and extremely non-objective observations, then it is indeed a comprehensive, albeit, pretty annoying one.

If it's meant to be a serious statement as to god/a creators existence, then I can only hope this does not reflect the best we can come up with; the use of heavily contorted maths and science to fit into something many people merely hope is real.

whichever the case, it is not a book of answers you were hoping for, be they for gods existence or agin, and you will no doubt have to put down the book occasionally to ponder (as I did) whether it's meant to be a parody or not, often hoping that it is.

There's not enough hours in the day to reproduce every glaring omission or frankly scary misinterpretation of certain observations, but since they're exceedingly numerous, I'll list a few.

1.0 out of 5 stars You had me at 'murder' 4 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover
The evocative highlighting of the word 'murder' on the cover was my favourite bit as it gave me a clear framework for approaching the words inside.

I read it. It was murder.

Drivel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Internet undressing 14 Sep 2010
By Saiph
Format:Hardcover
Here is a man who writes, publishes then reviews his own book. Having downloaded the first two chapters, I found it pretty unreadable with fatally flawed science. You would think a book claiming to demonstrate that god exists would be in the best sellers chart with the author being interviewed on TV, radio about his work. Unfortunately he has been undressed on the internet, I hope no one will waste their money on the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont Beleive The 5 Star Reviews 14 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover
I too have read the free chapters of this book that are available and as a Scientist I find them completely unfounded.

They are written in such a way as to fool people who may not be as clued up on the intracacies of certain scientific fields into thinking that god must exist, regardless of your religious viewpoint this is deliberately deceptive.

It also relies very heavily on the God of Gaps arguement, which in a nutshell is "if it cant be scientifically proven, it must be God", I'll leave you draw your own conclusions to that.

I must point out that on a review of another product, the Aliases "Reviewer" & "C Sheridan" are proved to be the Author himself, so both the 5 star reviews are by the person who actually wrote this book, so I would ignore.

There are many good books on the potential existance of (or not) of God, this is NOT one of them.
