BeschreibungThe God Hypothesis seeks to reverse the profound misunderstanding that science has disproved the existence of God. Drawing on the fairy tale of Goldilocks and The Three Bears, Michael A.

PressestimmenCorey's treatment of the anthropic principle does provide an excellent insight into how the anthropic principle can be fashioned into an effective apologetic for the traditional Judeo-Christian notion of a creator. Research News and Opportunities In Science and Technology An enthusiastic defense of the anthropic principle as an argument of the existence of God. Science and Theology News Michael Corey has clearly made an enormous effort in producing his book. It is almost encyclopedic in its mining of the discussion of what's become known as 'fine-tuning.' Reports Of The National Center For Science Education The God Hypothesis ... is excellent! M. A. Corey has done tremendous research. His argument is clear and convincing, [and] his clear and lively writing style makes the most complex scientific material within the range of an educated reader who is willing to think a bit. I hope [the] book is widely read. It will not convince the die-hards (nothing will) but will nourish many people like myself. As always with Corey's writings, his ideas are full of surprises and insights. It is 'guaranteed' that the reader of this book will come away with ideas and insights s/he did not have before. -- John A. Sanford, Jungian analyst and author of The Kingdom Within
