About

Overview

Covers the impact of religion and spirituality on some of the great scientific debates of the last 100 years - the origin of the universe, the nature of matter and energy, the quest for a TOE (theory of everything), and the current debates over multiple universes, the anthropic principle, and other aspects of theoretical physics that are borderline philosophy.
