What We Believe but Cannot Prove

September 25th, 2006

I saw this book 4 months ago sitting on a shelf near the bestsellers at a bookstore in Burlingame and was intrigued by the title (umm yes, I judged the book by its cover). I didn’t act on my impulse then but recently bought the book, What We Believe but Cannot Prove: Today’s Leading Thinkers on Science in the Age of Certainty, through Amazon.com because I needed some airplane reading.

I have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the book. It’s a compilation of scientists who answered the question on Edge.org. As you’d expect there are many who profess belief in life elsewhere in the Universe, many who don’t believe in God and other in a whole range of topics covering things from Consciousness (or lack thereof) to astronomy and cellular science. Most of the responses are provocative, never more than 2 to 3 pages in length though many are much shorter. I think it’s worth a look in case you’re in the mood for some science!
