    eBook mystery books.co Í God and the Astronomers eBook Ê God and PDF \ astronomers epub, God and ebok, God and the Astronomers KindleThis book is enthusiastically uoted in Collins's The Language of God and when I saw a copy going yesterday for only 5 Swiss francs I couldn't resist the chance to learn It's an odd piece of work and its author seems to have been an odd person According to Wikipedia he had an extremely distinguished career at NASA among other things serving as the first chairman of the Lunar Exploration Committee and leading the Theoretical Division for several years But he was also a co founder of the George C Marshall Institute which is

    eBook mystery books.co Í God and the Astronomers eBook Ê God and PDF \ astronomers epub, God and ebok, God and the Astronomers KindleIf every effect in science has a cause what caused the birth of the universe? Have scientists with ultimate irony brought themselves face to face with the possibility of God?I uote Dr Jastrow's astonishingly candid closing statement in the last paragraph of this book as the best summation of this book's premiseFor the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason the story ends like a bad dream He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conuer the highest peak As

    eBook mystery books.co Í God and the Astronomers eBook Ê God and PDF \ astronomers epub, God and ebok, God and the Astronomers KindleI'd read Gamow in elementary school and Jastrow's Red Giants and White Dwarfs in high school supplementing such occasional forays into scientific cosmology with issues of Scientific American but really didn't keep up with developments much Graduating from seminary however gave me the time and an interest in reacuainting myself with Jastrow via this book about the philosophical even theological problems posed by contemporary astrophysics and cosmologyFrankly I found it perplexing that Jastrow primarily conceives of such uestions as what caused the big bang? in theological terms at all While the uestion may be valid bringing in the god concept introduces a whole lot of baggage which just obfuscates what is neutrally speaking a philosophical uestion Causality is adeuately addressed I think by Kant

    eBook mystery books.co Í God and the Astronomers eBook Ê God and PDF \ astronomers epub, God and ebok, God and the Astronomers KindleA fascinating book that has aged both extremely well and extremely poorlyAs a short history of 20th century astronomy it holds up remarkably well even after 30 years Starting with the realization that there are galaxies other than our own at the turn of the century the book follows the series of discoveries that led to the theory and later confirmation of the Big Bang and does so in a very conversational easy to follow way Jastrow also goes out of his way to hu

    eBook mystery books.co Í God and the Astronomers eBook Ê God and PDF \ astronomers epub, God and ebok, God and the Astronomers KindleReally interesting read Robert Jastrow is a self proclaimed agnostic and he gives a history of the discovery of the new cosmology starting with Einstein and Hubble and ending today Evidence is given for the Big Bang the universe exploded into existence in a moment and is not eternal The discovery of the expanding universe is also addressed but the vernacular is not overly scientific I love this topic because it always leaves the people studying it wondering how things got to be how they are on a cosmic scale He ends the book with this uote For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason the story ends in a bad dream He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conuer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries
