The Mind of God

"The Mind of God" (Paul Davies) - I seem to recall the name Davies in Christian apologetics.  Hopefully, it is referring to some other Davies, but this was not really solidly Christian.

The book is fairly short (232 pages to end notes), but took me a long time to get through.  It is basically a survey of different cosmologies, with some of the history.  Davies is never really clear on which he favors.

He does make some things clear:
  1. The Bible is not to be taken seriously in matters of origins
  2. Evolution is true
  3. He has faith that mankind can come up with all the answers
 His openness towards mysticism was probably the most disappointing.  I will probably do a separate post for that.
