"Therefore there is no God."
A theodicy based on quantum physics, relativity . . . absorb this book, you'll be way ahead of most priests, rabbis, and other theologians today.
--Book Review Ed., MENSA Bulletin, Sept 2009 Number 528, p 42.
From the Author
I feel that the traditional theodicies are fit only for the childhood of the human species and as we enter our spiritual adolescence, we must turn to more reasonable ideas such as those found in the modern sciences (primarily quantum physics, relativity, and chaos theory). Here we may have a new place to look in order to develop new justifications for the Problem of Evil. In this work, I examine and refute many historical attempts to justify evil in a good God's world and, using insights provided by some of those modern sciences, propose a solution to this theological puzzle with a rational, albeit unorthodox, theodicy that might withstand objective critical scrutiny.

Top Customer Reviews
He is a much more rigorous and concise writer than most who touch on this subject, who tend to be bloviating seminarians or angry atheists like Hitchens.
He also does a very nice job of offering a comparably clear and readable description of the evolution of modern physics.
He even offers a nod toward the great John Polkinghorne.
Contrary to his stated aim, however, he offers no satisfactory syncretization/reconciliation of the two apparently conflicting "worldviews", and ends the book with a figurative shrug of the shoulders concerning the possibility of formulating one.
Nonetheless, teachers or laymen interested in a highly readable and concise review of theodicy through the ages will find this book to be a good option.
