I am just about to finish the book and agree with your review.The physics stuff tickled my mind. It made me realize that contemplations in science offer as great imaginings as any theology. The difference is that science offers useful (and arguably humble) application whereas theology only initiates self-hatred and general distrust.Your review is an excellent summary. I hope it encourages folks to buy and read this book.
The King of Lineland scoffed at the very idea of worlds greater than his, even while arguing with Mr. Square! And all good agnostics scoff at all reports by thousands who saw the dance of the sun at Fatima... In 1883 'Flatland' made it easy to understand contiguous geometric worlds. Now 'Techie Worlds' looks at Christian ideas like Trinity, Resurrection, Judgment, soul, showing that they make sense in such worlds. 'Techie Worlds' follows the practice of science, testing phenomena to see if they make sense in the light of theory. They do. 'Techie Worlds' available from www.amazon.com, shows that Christian ideas are logical, explain the real worlds, make mechanistic sense, and that believers are using their intelligence. What a surprise for Moslems and pagans, who now can accept a religion that treasures all mankind.GeorgeRic
A great review! Stenger has always written with a concise, lucid style and his newest book is no exception. It is unfortunate from the Atheist side however, that he is not nearly as well known as the four horsemen.
It's a shame that authors such as Victor Stenger misrepresent or are ignorant of what many religious people believe. He argues from the standpoint that God is a scientific hypothesis which many "thinking" religious adherents wouldn't agree with.
