I am very excited about the upcoming book by Adam Frank, professor of astrophysics at the University of Rochester in New York, and the founder of NPR’s 13.7 Cosmos and Culture blog. The book is called About Time: Cosmology and Culture at the Twilight of the Big Bang, and will be released on September 27, 2011. It explores new ideas about the origin of the universe after the semi-collapse of the Bing Bang theory.
As a fan of astronomy, and also as an atheist with an insatiable taste for scientific explanations for why we are here (scientific, as opposed to the whole thing about the snake, apple and an invisible hand engineering our evolution) I can’t wait for this book to be released. I encourage everyone else to read it as well. Adam Frank is pretty easy and straightforward with his explanations, so the book should be an easy read for everyone.
Also, this book and the new theories about the origins of the universe showcase the beauty of science, and it shows how, unlike the alternative, non-dogmatic scientific explanations can be replaced by better ideas and theories without anyone being suicide bombed by an angry mob.
*PS—A warning to our Jew-o-phobe friends on IC: judging by his name, it appears that Adam Frank is Jewish. So, you may want to avoid reading this book or else you may burst into flames in a fit of anger for seeing a Jewish author recommended on an Iranian site—either that or you may have a heart attack in a fit of envy. In the alternative, you may actually want to read this book and find some kind of a Jewish conspiracy, or to find out how Jews are distorting the theories about the cosmos to prevent the Islamic Republic from achieving its much deserved, and destined, greatness. I’m sure you will blog, and tell us all about it.
