For all the bookworms among us, a new topic to discuss our latest reads.

Today I started When God is Gone, Everything is Holy: The Making of a Religious Naturalist by Chet Raymo. I'm only a couple of hours (and chapters) in, but I love this chap's books - I have most of them already. He's a physicist and astronomer who writes often, and particularly well, about the interface of science and religion, which is the theme again in his latest book.

:wink:

Actually it's very good. It's very readable, and about why accidents - such as the Madrid air crash, happen.
