Paul Kurtz, Editor & David Koepsell's SCIENCE AND ETHICS: CAN SCIENCE HELP US MAKE WISE MORAL JUDGMENTS? is a survey that blends scientific ideas with ethnical and moral investigation, offering up a collection of essays by some thirty contributors who range from scientists and philosophers. Chapters perfect for college-level collections strong in either science or philosophy probe such issues as research ethics, applications of technological and medical advancements, and social issues ranging from racism to criminal management.

I used this book for my philosophy of science class and it proved to be a challenging text both philosophically but it too challenged my knowledge and ability to read scientific articles. I definitely recommend!

By the second paragraph, I read, "Those who destroyed the World Trade Center towers did so in the name of Allah..." How do you really know? Are you absolutely certain? Because you believe FOX News? -Ha! From the research I've done, it was an inside job. Watch "Loose Change 9/11 An American Coup" documentary and you will witness resounding evidence that it was an inside job. Look at the evidence! Open your eyes! Stop blaming 9/11 on Islam!
