“ The choice of text was good, though assumes a working knowledge of the actual science. Perhaps whoever brings a book forward should prepare/provide a NEUTRAL reader's guide. Now for a criticism ... 1) I take it that this is supposed to be a Science and Philosophy Book Club, not an atheist club? We should be discussing the book's ideas, often enough having implications for the God issue. But the criterion for selection should not be does it address this issue, let alone argue for the non-existence of God. Or have a misunderstood something ... is the sponsor, CFI dedicated to carrying the torch for atheism? If so, the Club is misnamed ... 2) Does Science and Philosophy Book Club means AND as in sometimes one, sometimes the other, sometimes books that deal with both as in their interconnection? Of course, it can be whatever it wants as per how the people who take on the task of running it, and CFI's mandate - but make it clearer to those who might sign up? ”
