WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
By Marcus Chown
Published by Faber and Faber Ltd. 2013.
UK paperback price £9.99
Popular science book covering life, the universe and everything in a nutshell.
‘Crammed with bind-boggling facts’
Note from the book on ‘Creationism’.
One of the central characteristics of a scientific theory, as encapsulated in a scientific law, is that you get more out than you put in. Pseudoscientific explanations all fall at this hurdle. To get out a lot, it is, generally necessary to put in a lot. In fact, in the case of Creationism, in order to explain the Universe, it is necessary to postulate something even more complicated than the Universe - namely, God. This amounts to putting in more than you get out, the very opposite of science.
