Piergiorgio Odifreddi – The Gospel According to Science. Religions to the Litmus Test


The pontificating atheist

The author, who usually feels a great sense of self-satisfaction when is fond of appearing in on TV talk shows, loves to display his intelligence and wit when exposing the inconsistencies, falsehoods and superstitions of religion. Here he submits to his criticism some supernatural concepts – God, the Creation, the Infinite, the Chaos – demonstrating how they can be explained by science. Although conceived as a popular work for the general reader, the book is very hard quite challenging because it uses of its use of theories and philosophical concepts that are not always easy to grasp understand.
