Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. See our disclaimer. Beginning from the perspective of secular Western atheism and believing the world is largely as we see it, the author considers the nature of reality more deeply: what science really tells us, what that means for religion and philosophy, and what that implies for how we choose to live.
The result is an exploration of the key ideas in religion and philosophy that are compatible with recent scientific developments, which form the basis for a synthesis of Eastern and Western thought on the path to happiness. Beyond God considers the purpose of existence, what science really means for our view of the meaning of life, and how we should live it. Customer Reviews.

Scientists used NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to find water "fingerprints" in the atmosphere of a hot, bloated, Saturn-mass exoplanet some light-years away.
Darwin Vs. God: The Clash Between Science & Church? - HistoryExtra
NASA finds a large amount of water in an exoplanet's atmosphere. Role models, footsteps, and the search for life. New planet is largest discovered that orbits two suns. A discovery one-ups Tatooine by finding twin stars which host three giant exoplanets. Three giant worlds found orbiting twin suns. NASA's efforts in digital communications have been recognized with nominations for six Webby Awards, the highest honor for online communications. Our nearest neighboring star Proxima Centauri bears a startling resemblance to our own sun, raising questions about conditions on its Earth-sized planet.
Proxima Centauri might be more sunlike than we thought. A fearless astronomer behind a game-changing telescope. New launch window under review. Discovery alert! Iron-made super Earth. The knowledge and tools NASA has developed to study life on Earth will be a great asset to the study of planets beyond our solar system. Our living planet shapes the search for life beyond Earth. A super Earth that scorches in extreme heat because it circles so close to its star. A sizzling super Earth.
NASA researchers say they have passed a major milestone in their quest to detect the atmospheres of giant planets outside our solar system. NASA team passes major technological milestone for characterizing exoplanets. Icy moons, galaxy clusters, and distant worlds! Oh my! SOFIA confirms nearby planetary system is similar to our own. NASA announces astronomy and astrophysics fellows for A team of scientists led by the Carnegie Institution for Science has released the largest collection of observations for hunting exoplanets to the public.
Scientists make huge dataset of nearby stars available to public. University of Warwick researchers have identified a white dwarf pulsar — a star type which has eluded astronomers for half a century.
The Meaning of Life
The vortex coronagraph has the potential to image planetary systems closer to their host stars than any other instrument in the world. Go beyond what's possible; that's the Spitzer Space Telescope's motto. Designed for a two-year mission, 13 years later it's still searching the skies for new discoveries. Spitzer Space Telescope begins 'Beyond' phase.
The relatively nearby planet GJ b may have an atmosphere despite being baked to a temperature of around degrees Fahrenheit. Venus-like exoplanet might have oxygen atmosphere, but not life. Astronomers have pinpointed which planets discovered by the NASA Kepler mission may sustain liquid water on their surfaces. Astronomers help focus research in the search for another Earth. To find Earth-like planets, NASA will face a challenge that seems impossible: build a space telescope so stable, it moves less than the width of an atom.
The next generation of telescopes are almost impossibly accurate. A young star's stellar outburst brings its water snow line into view. The bizarre idea of snow orbiting in space is fundamental to planet formation. How did we get here? The appearance of humans, 4. The history of deity beliefs, 5. The current main monotheistic religions, 6.

Well-written and well-reasoned book. With a touch of spice.
Empty half the Earth of its humans. It's the only way to save the planet
An interesting topic, why religions are dangerous. Great use of logic and sound reason to persuade the readers at an accessible level. Klein has great command of the topic and writes with conviction. Good use of charts, diagrams, and even cartoons to complement the excellent narrative. Great and generous use of quotes. Provocative statements. Humans, like most creatures, are pattern-seeking. If we cannot understand the cause of something, many people would rather find comfort in a false theory than have no answer at all.
Discusses the concept of faith. Examines Judaism. Examines Christianity. Examines Islam. Examines morality and ethics. Examines the Ten Commandments, one of the strengths of this book. It sees wives as being on the same level as slaves, animals or the property of a neighbour.
Is this really a great moral lesson? The many immoralities of the Bible. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. Interesting and provocative statements. On prayer. On the soul.
