Product Details


Paul Davies, a professor from Adelaide University, is recognised worldwide as an expert in (and a populariser of) that confused area where science and religion meet. In The Fifth Miracle, he discusses such concepts as the primordial soup, entropy, DNA, RNA, quantum physics, and the possibility that life on Earth originated with something that evolved into bacteria, living miles beneath the planet's surface. Davies is very interested in a meteorite that was found in Antarctica, which may have come from Mars, and may perhaps contain evidence of life. In apparent fairness, Davies puts forward dissenting views from various scientists, and explains why he believes their objections can theoretically be overcome. But even if this particular meteorite turns out to be a red herring, life has happened once, can it happen again? Is the universe arranged to have life happen over and over again? In typical Davies fashion, The Fifth Miracle is so clearly argued that you read happily along, comprehending what would previously have seemed hopelessly complex.

"Paul Davies has been writing excellent books about science for so long that it is hard to believe that he is still getting better. But on this evidence, he is.... Delightful." -- John Gribbin, author of In Search of Schr dinger's Cat "Davies makes accessible a subject growing increasingly arcane." -- Leonard Shlain, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
