Summary from GoodReads: Do you believe in God, life after death, or nothingness? Do you know the origins of the Bible's New Testament? This book explores the world of science, religion, and atheism and integrates them into the aspects of Twentieth and Twenty-first Century physics. It ponders life and death experiences and includes the author's own near death experience. Posing many questions about the realm of our existence, it stresses the importance of promoting humanity without exclusionary elements of human prejudice. These and many other contemporary issues are combined with the latest scientific and philosophic theories in the search for real truth of subjects that have brought down entire empires in bloodlust, and have each of us pondering the eternal "Why?" We are in the second century since the collision of science and religion. One is based in empirical evidence; the other is based on thousands of years of pure faith. Hang on as your perfectly ordered world is shaken and stirred - if you have an open mind to believe what is real and allow for possibilities of the yet unknown
My Review: This book can be debated start to finish. It's sure to get a discussion going between those who have read it.
In this book he lets us know, point blank, what we all know but rarely say. We all know we're going to die. But none of us really know what happens then. It's whatever faith we choose that gives us our opinion of what's next.
Don't let your initial thoughts of the first few chapters of the book keep you from reading on. If your beliefs are questioned in the beginning, I feel that everyone should still be open-minded enough to read on. Doesn't everyone need a good dose of acceptance?
Will your thoughts change by the time you finish the book? I'm not sure. Feel free to come on back by and tell me. Will you be left with something to think about? Most definitely.
