Big Bang: The Origin of the Universe


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

This is a highly readable and entertaining book that tells the story of the many brilliant, often eccentric scientists who fought against the establishment idea of an eternal and unchanging cosmos. From such early Greek cosmologists as Anaximander to recent satellite measurements taken deep in space, Big Bang is a narrative full of anecdotes and personal histories. With characteristic clarity, Simon Singh tells the centuries-long story of mankind's attempt to understand how the universe came to be, a story which itself begins some 14 billion years ago (give or take a billion years). Simon Singh shows us that it is within the capability of all of us -- in his expert hands -- to understand the Big Bang: the fundamental theory in all of science, and a high point -- perhaps the high point -- of human achievement.

Some say (in christianity) that God's power is ever reaching and that we will never be able to grasp the entirety of it. Maybe there's your answer.. But I like to remain undecided so that I can freely study science from a darwinian perspective.... religions; who needs em!
