    eBook ahalico ¿ God and the Astronomers PDFEPUB õ God and MOBI astronomers pdf, God and download, God and the Astronomers KindleThis book is enthusiastically quoted 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 described in the following termsJastrow together with Fred Seitz and William Nierenberg established the George C Marshall Institute to counter the scientists who were arguing against Reagan's Starwars Initiative ar

    eBook ahalico ¿ God and the Astronomers PDFEPUB õ God and MOBI astronomers pdf, God and download, 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 quote 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 conquer 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

    eBook ahalico ¿ God and the Astronomers PDFEPUB õ God and MOBI astronomers pdf, God and download, 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 humanize the subject by spending a good deal of time on the biographies of some of the scientists involvedIts philosophical discussion however is remarkably outdated frankly that's what makes the book so interesting Jastrow was amazed at how many of his colleagues especially among those who were atheists took an instant disliking to the Big Bang This dislike had little to do with the evidence for the theory rather it was based on a philosophical prejudice against a universe that had a definitive First Cause without

    eBook ahalico ¿ God and the Astronomers PDFEPUB õ God and MOBI astronomers pdf, God and download, 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 quote 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 conquer 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
