2.0 out of 5 stars Better to read Deutsch..., 2 Dec 2012
By 
This review is from: The G.O.D. Experiments: How Science Is Discovering God in Everything, Including Us (Paperback)
From earlier review:

"Scientists describe natural processes as random but Schwartz points out that random events must be exactly repetitive (like the toss of the same coin) and must be mutually independent (they cannot be sequential or influence one another). Life-building processes do not satisfy either of these conditions."

The main issue here is interpretation. If you assign things as "God's work" you are basically saying they cannot be understood. This is not an easy position to take logically, considering the pace of scientific achievement and the constant flow of the unknown and mysterious into the explanatory form of known theories.

If you want to understand these concepts in clear scientific terms you would do well to read David Deutsch's The Fabric of Reality which explains our observation of ordered events as "random" using the exact same example. The same for the interconnectedness of things...
