A poor way to present science
on December 15, 1998
I suppose that by writing a book about science in the style of the Bible, the anonymous authors hope to reach readers who would not ordinarily pick up a book about science. However, they end up presenting science as revealed truth which it most certainly is not. The authors even go so far as to claim that "like religon, science has its 'priests'". While there are many famous scientists that are considered to be authorities, even Nobel laureates like Linus Pauling have to continue to earn their credibility. While this book presents a great deal of scientific facts, it fails to present the essential features of science that make science successful. These features are not easily described in this Biblical form.
It would be nice if the publishers would reveal who the authors actually are.
