Richard Dawkins has brought us some amazing books from his unique and passionate view of science and religion in and athiests view.
The book contains a view of Genesis in scientific fact with illustrations from David McKean that help explain the text.
I for one love this book for what it is trying to do and beleive that young minds should only be presented with fact and be allowed to explore spirituality in their own time.
“MAGIC takes many forms. Supernatural magic is what our ancestors used in order to explain the world before they developed the scientific method. The ancient Egyptians explained the night by suggesting the goddess Nut swallowed the sun. The Vikings believed a rainbow was the gods’ bridge to earth. The Japanese used to explain earthquakes by conjuring a gigantic catfish who carried the world on his back—earthquakes occurred each time he flipped his tail. These are magical, extraordinary tales. But there is another kind of magic, and it lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to these questions. It is the magic of reality-science.”
The book is available on Amazon in the UK now and in the US on the 4th October.
