This book confirms what I have thought for years the "big Bang" and the first book of the Bible are compatible. Read it for yourself it does not preach just clarifies I am so please that I bought it. I have not yet finished the book but am well on the way.

A fascinating read. Thought-provoking and controversial, it puts the case for the authenticity of the Genesis narrative. You may disagree with it but you won't be bored!

For some reason, this book follows the premise that the Judeo-Christian text accurately describes the creation of the Universe. Religion is belief, science is research, they have two entirely opposing methodologies; any theological philosopher such as Kierkegaard or Nietzsche would have made this clear to the author.

As a scientist, the author should have checked his facts and looked at the evidence that the text is itself derived from Egyptian and other Middle Eastern texts, that there are clearly more than one description of creation in Genesis (one of which does not mention humans at all).

Poorly thought out, badly conceived and executed, I can only conclude that the author likes writing and has come up with a title that will attract attention and controversy to earn some money and publicity.

The discussion is not about how to meld science and religion but to explain how the social responsibility which is the basis of religion fits into the modern world.
