Re: What are you reading right now?

Gave up on Dialogues with the Devil (for now) and am reading these two books:

http://www.amazon.com/Philosophy-Blade- ... 1137412283

http://www.amazon.com/Why-Science-Does- ... sprove+god

*Starred Review* In Aczel, Richard Dawkins and his fellow New Atheists face a formidable opponent. As a mathematician with a Berkeley-Harvard résumé, Aczel wields impressive intellectual weapons in demolishing the New Atheists’ claims that science has disproven the existence of God. With compelling reasoning, Aczel demonstrates that whenever Dawkins and his allies turn their attacks against anything but naively literal readings of the Bible, they distort or misrepresent the methods and findings of science. Darwinism has provided no godless explanation of how human consciousness emerged. The attempt to reduce the astounding fine-tuning of the big bang to quantum physics likewise leaves huge questions unanswered. Disproofs of God’s existence based on probability theory similarly fail under scrutiny. When the New Atheists buttress their flawed science by appealing to the authority of Einstein, Aczel catches them cherry-picking quotations, so hiding complexities in the great physicist’s metaphysical thinking. Those who truly grapple with modern science, Aczel finally avers, discover not a disproof of God but rather perplexing mysteries, such as the stunning vistas of infinity that the intensely religious theorist Georg Cantor glimpsed behind his revolutionary continuum hypothesis. Such mysteries may not signify the presence of the divine, but they will surely stir deep wonderings. --Bryce Christensen --

Re: What are you reading right now?

Non fiction: "Alan Turing: The Enigma", I am having so much fun with this book, I find myself stopping to learn more about ideas and topics within the book. That means an A* book to me. Also reading, "Going Clear" , the BT non fic discussion book. This book reads like a novel, the phrase, "you can't make this stuff up" applies to this book.

Fiction: I have discovered Richard Flanagan. "Goulds Book of Fish", was excellent but, "Death of a River Guide" was actually awesome. This novel is only 250 pages, but in content it feels like an epic. Beautiful prose, vivid characters and the consruction is brilliant, and I don't use that word lightly. Best novel of the year so far for me!

The Queen of Bedlam by Robert McCammon. Speaks the Nightbird was very good, so I finally picked up the sequel.

Re: What are you reading right now?

Currently listening (audiobook) to the Murderbot series by Martha Wells, recently finished George, Nicholas and Wilhelm: Three Royal Cousins and the Road to World War I by Miranda Carter, and A short stay in hell by Steven L. Peck; which I rather enjoyed.

I just finished Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, which was recommended to me by a classmate. Now I'm reading Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen, who in my opinion is incapable of writing a bad book.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I'm reading the reviews of wall mount range hood because recently I renovate my house and now I want to install wall mount in my kitchen which range hoods use charcoal filters which trap some grease and odors but are not as effective as the stainless steel baffle and mesh filters of ducted range hoods.
