Science indeed has not disproved the existence of God (theories are not proof). Nor has science disproved that the existence of God is necessary to explain the universe. Also the concept of “art” is human: we are the ones who might see nests as “artistic”—unless I missed the last finch gallery exhibition? Animals strive to survive; that is no proof of altruism. Reading the book will make more sense of these statements—even if one disagrees with the author’s points. So, I suggest this book both to believers and infidels.

Science versus religion is a very narrow view point on theism and the primary source theories of the universe. Here are links to but one of many alternative theories available to the inquiring mind:

The book is flawed. It is correct that science has not disproved God; it is more accurate to say that 'science has disproved that the existence of God is necessary to explain the universe'. The author cites Stephen Hawking stating the above in the book's prologue.
More specific flaws include that only humans have art, consciousness, and altruism. He fails to cite that Bower Birds have artistic nests; that elephants, dolphins, and the apes (including humans) have self-awareness; and that there are many forms of simpler forms of altruism in the animal kingdom such as 'reciprocal altruism' seen in vampire bats.

This book is odd in that Amir D. Aczel does not talk much at all about proof or God. Why would science try to disprove God anyway? Science has nothing to do with religion except as anthropologists.
The chapter on evolution is very poor. It shows that Mr. Aczel does not understand it at all.
A quote from the book: "I have never heard of an atheist group volunteering to offer comfort to the ill or the distressed." He must not have looked very hard. I found many with a few taps on my keyboard.

Hmm.....I like how they include negative comments for the book from other news sources on here. Where are the other reviews? Like the ones that might be found on the actual book.

The old, old, old debate about God. This is so tiring now. My only comment is Who Cares? I believe in God and I don't care if there is proof or not. I also believe in Science where there is seldom proof, mostly speculation, and a lot of wasteful research. Both have provided us with a good life. Why is there still this artificial separation between the so called real world and spirituality? Does this do anything to help the world?
