The Ghost in the Universe

by Taner Edis
Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, 2002. 330 pages.

Edis argues that "[w]ith science, we have stumbled upon an excellent way of learning about the world, and the best of our scientific knowledge consistently undermines our hope that there is a God." The reviewer for Choice writes, "Well written and amply documented, Edis's book should be read by anyone who has even the remotest interest in science, religion, or both," and The Ghost in the Universe won the Morris D. Forkosch award for the outstanding secular humanist book of 2002 from the Council for Secular Humanism. The author is Assistant Professor of Physics at Truman State University and RNCSE's associate editor for physics and astronomy.
