5.0 out of 5 stars Does a dust mite contain more than 100 trillion atoms?!, 18 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Magic of Reality: How we know what's really true (Kindle Edition)
The most "magical" (metaphorically speaking) thing about the universe is the intricacy of its reality, and as always, Richard Dawkins makes this clear in lucid, accessible prose. I am with him every step of the way and back again; but on a point of information his dust-mite atom-count has turned into an itch I have to scratch. I read somewhere that the communication threads inside computer chips can be as little as 14 atoms thick. Answers.com confidently report that a speck of dust contains "a million" atoms, which I'll accept as a ball park figure. But 1,2, miss a few... 100 trillion plus?? Not that it matters that much in the magic of my reality (otherwise known as my scheme of things). The important fact/opinion to convey is that the book is wonderful, and everyone should read it, after they have read "The God Delusion".
