The Odds On God

This Guardian article on Stephen Unwin has brought the subject of his book, The Probability of God : A Simple Calculation That Proves the Ultimate Truth, out into the Blogosphere.

What I find so interesting/infuriating is how no one seems to have read the actual book but feels compelled to dismiss it outright. The author is a nuclear physicist after all, perhaps he thought about some possible objections to his idea and addressed them in the book? Maybe if you read the book you could actually judge the ideas and arguments fairly? What a concept!

In case you are interested I read the book and interviewed the author.
