Reviews

The book is a clear, balanced survey of the interactions between science and religious doubt and includes a detailed discussion of issues raised by physics, biology, neuroscience, pseudoscience, and philosophy. What I find valuable, and unusual, about Edis is that although he is a non-believer his treatment of religion is even-handed. Although he makes his own position clear, he does not hesitate to point out shortcomings that frequently exist in the more aggressive statements of the "New Atheists." This restraint makes his criticisms of religion all the more effective. Because he is prepared to point out where nonbelievers are guilty of overstating the power of science, his demonstration of why science offers a real and serious challenge to religion is more compelling... Science and Nonbelief chronicles, in a balanced and accessible way, the long history of the battle between adherents of religious doctrines and the nonbelievers who adhere to the naturalism of modern science. Edis provides a nontechnical introduction to many of the key questions that concern science and religion today. Metapsychology Online Reviews, September 16, 2008, Volume 12, Issue 38
