About the Book

The book, “God and Science” is primarily an effort to reconcile the discrepancy between the world of religion and the world of science. It discusses the parallels between the scientific concept of creation and Genesis’ description. It explains the reason for the contradictions that appears in the bible and goes into some of the difficulties we have in understanding God including why there is suffering and evil. There is a section on faith and the afterlife. A hypothesis is proposed for a scientific explanation of God. Finally a few hints are tossed out concerning possible methods for attaining promotion to that afterlife.
