it was amazing
Recommended for: those who enjoyed da vinci code

A quote from the book: "Science may have alleviated the miseries of disease and...provided an array of gagetry for our convenience...but it has left us in a world without wonder. Our sunsets have been reduced to wavelengths and frequencies... Even the technology that unites us, divides us. We are electronically connected to the globe and yet we feel utterly alone. Skepticism has become a virtue. Is it any wonder that humans now feel more depressed and defeated than at any point in human history? Does science hold anything sacred? Science looks for answers by probing our unborn fetuses, and presumes to rearrange our own DNA. It shatters God's world into smaller and smaller pieces in quest of meaning...and all it finds is more questions. The ancient war between science and religion is over. Science has won...

Mankind took thousands of years to progress from the wheel to the car and only decades from the car to space... We measure scientific progress in weeks... The rift between us grows deeper and deeper, and as religion is left behind, people find themselves in a spiritual void. WE cry out for meaning... We see UFO's, have spirit contact, and out of body experiences... They are a desperate cry of the modern soul, lonely and tormented, crippled by its own enlightenment and its inability to accept meaning in anything removed from technology..."

I KNOW! Too much, but when you can combine science and religion into a book that piques your intellect - it's a winner for me! :)

Peggy I absolutely love that quote....

Jeana Warren I know! That's why I saved that page. Sooooo good!

Now you NEED to read the book. As a Christian and a scientist - but not a Christian Scientist. Ha-ha!

Susan Gill This was my favorite part of the book. It's something I've always believed but could never put it into words. It brought tears to my eyes. Then I realized that the camerlengo was part of the killings.
