Since the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species' in 1859, many have found science and belief in God irreconcible. Now, in the late 20th century, advances in physics, biology and the fields of chaos and complexity have brought the conflict to a crucial stage. Science attempts to discover the fundamental laws which underlie the beginning of the universe and its continuing evolution.;Some scientists insist that belief in God can sit comfortably alongside scientific knowledge. For others that idea is anathema. But this is not a question confined to scientists, philosophers and intellectuals. Examining the full sweep of the latest discoveries, what can any of us know, and what remains unexplained, perhaps unexplainable? Can we find God - or a scientific theory that will erase once and for all the notion of God? This book is a review of modern science which allows the reader to question whether science will have the last word, either way.
