Why Science Doesn’t Disprove God

51qpmitxmol-_sx331_bo1204203200_Book #5: Why Science Doesn’t Disprove God, Amir Aczel

Inspired by the works of the neo-athiests (Hitchens and Dawkins), Amir Aczel wrote this book as a rebuttal to the principle that science can disprove the existence of God.  He sets out to show that in the various fields of science (math, physics, biology, etc) that there is a certain level of complexity that cannot be explained through merely natural processes, concluding that some level higher order must be involved.  While well researched, my complaint about this book is that it seems to be written from the perspective of scientific absolutism (i.e. the knowledge that we learn from science is the absolute authority.)  The author seems sympathetic to God but relies on the authority of scientific discovery over the revealed Word of God.  So when it comes to authority, he takes his authority from the textbook and not from scripture.
