God’s Mechanics; A Reconciliation of Religion and Science

 Images Godsmechanicscover
This looks to be an interesting read.

From BoingBoing:

“God’s Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion” is the new book from Brother Guy Consolmagno, who is, in no particular order, a scientist, a Jesuit, a science fiction geek, an MIT alum and a Vatican Astronomer. Obviously, religion is a central part of Brother Guy’s life, but so is technology, rationalism and science.

God’s Mechanics is a relgionist’s explanation of his faith, in terms aimed at showing techies how one of their own can simultaneously believe in supernatural phenomena and practice rigorous, materialistic science.

How is this not a good idea? I work hard to maintain my doughy frame, and a device like this can only aid me in my quest for doughiness.

The wildfires down in southern CA are unreal. Is it merely coincidence that so many fires started simultaneously so spread out?

BoingBoing has a plethora of links, including this interactive Google Map of the area.
