What if technology itself pointed to a truth outdoors of area and time, and a clothier in the back of all that exists? In Counting to God, Douglas Ell applies the lens of mathematical research to fresh clinical discoveries, drawing startling conclusions.
Ell makes use of scrupulous research and likelihood calculations to make a powerful case that the main complex, subtle pondering in technological know-how not just permits the assumption of a designed universe, yet encourages it.
As the adage says, numbers do not lie.
An MIT graduate with a masters measure in theoretical arithmetic, Ell surveys the present kingdom of data in seven parts the place glossy technology helps the life of God, together with the background and actual legislation of the universe and our planet, the beginning and expertise of existence, evolution of species, and quantum physics.
How cautious is the technology? Counting to God has been counseled by way of a couple of major scientists, together with the pinnacle of the physics division at MIT.
By giving the misinform the truism that medical discoveries were contradicting the tenets of conventional faith, Counting to God presents a less assailable origin in case you already think. even as, it opens the door to the next truth, for a person who believes in conventional technological know-how and the ability of cause, but wonders if there should be anything more.
I hugely suggest this considerate exploration of the relation among technology and spirituality, doubtless adversarial descriptions of our global. Posed as a private trip, Doug asks “How do we relate the descriptions of the non secular and actual worlds?” Doug takes at the greatest questions of our time: cosmology, the foundation of the universe and the biochemistry of genetics in a suitable and obtainable means. even if you compromise with him or now not, you'll get pleasure from and study from this book.
