Synopsis

The 'new materialism' argues that science and religious belief are incompatible. This book considers such arguments from cosmology, from biology and from sociobiology and exposes a number of crucial fallacies and weaknesses.
With a carefully argued, point by point refutation of scientific atheism, God, Chance and Necessity shows that modern scientific knowledge does not undermine belief in God, but actually points to the existence of God as the best explanation of how things are the way they are. Thus it sets out to demolish the claims of books like The Selfish Gene, and to show that the overwhelming appearance of design in nature is not deceptive.
