In the past few years a number of scientists have claimed that there is credible scientific evidence for the existence of God. In 1998 Newsweek went so far as to proclaim on its cover, "Science Finds God." Is this true? Are scientists close to solving the greatest of all mysteries? Physicist Victor J. Stenger delves into this fascinating question from a skeptical point of view in this lucid and engrossing presentation of the key scientific facts. Stenger critically reviews the attempts of many contemporary theologians and some scientists to resurrect failed natural theologies in new guises. Whether these involve updated arguments from design, "anthropic" coincidences, or modern forms of deism, Stenger clearly shows that nothing in modern science requires supernatural explanation. He offers naturalistic explanations for empirical observations that are frequently given theistic interpretations: for example, that information in the universe implies an intelligent designer, that a universe with a beginning requires a Creator, and that the elegant laws of physics suggest a transcendent realm. He shows that alleged spiritual, nonmaterial phenomena do not lie beyond the experimental reach of physics. This thorough and careful consideration of scientific evidence covers much ground yet remains accessible and highly informative to the educated lay reader.… (mais)

Stenger takes aim at apologists, especially those who accept the findings of science and attempt to force them to support their own worldview. He writes with a steady hand, and doesn't drop a lot of invective into the work. He goes boldly where the science takes him, but unlike many physicists, does not attempt to explain biology, which he feels is better left to the biologists. He does spend some time on probability theory, as well as on quantum theory, but this book is less jargon-laden than some of his other works, making it more accessible to people who are not versed in physics or statistics. The only real problem with this book is that it is a bit dated; the science continues moving on. This is not a huge downside, because it is a solid introduction to the topic that does not pretend to be the last word. ( )
