Creation stories are universal and have been told through the ages. They express what moved people, what excited them, hurt them, made them feel grateful. Wonder about existence, awareness of dependence upon forces beyond our control, responsibility: these themes are now often articulated in the context of the scientific view of our world, from the Big Bang to the present, "from nothing until now." Presenting a brief and accessible overview of contemporary scientific thought,Creation: From Nothing Until Nowis an imaginative and poetic exploration of the origins of the universe. The author assesses the religious and philosophical impact of scientific developments on our understanding of evolution and the natural world, and examines the changing relationship between us and our planet.
