God, Chance and NecessityKeith Ward
The so-called ‘new materialism’ argues that science and religious belief are incompatible. From Cosmology to Biology, its exponents have included such eminent names as Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Peter Atkins and Michael Ruse.
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 the way things 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.
