Omy and genetics to language and virtual reality combining them in a landmark statement of the human appetite for wonder This is the book Richard Dawkins was meant to write a brilliant assessment of what science is and isn't a tribute to science not because it is useful but because it is uplifting. ,

Unweaving the Rainbow Science Delusion and the Appetite for WonderThe first half or so was amazing and the rest was still really interesting specially the The Serpent of Venice end if not uite asxhilarating At the same time you have to remember that Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels, even that powerhouse of scientific poetry Carl Sagan had some dry chaptersvery now and then Some dryness definitely doesn t make it any less worth the read and its mild anyway Overall this book was Kiss of Surrender (Deadly Angels, extremelynjoyable and a breeze to get through 45 stars will probably be 5 on the reread As a person unlearned well okay let s be honest frankly ignorant in science I The Weirdstone of Brisingamen enjoyed this wide ranging book Dawkins largely achieves his aim to show that an understanding of the science of phenomena can create a sense of wonderual to mythic or poetic metaphor with a concomitant gain in understanding and an increased desire to know still and to look askance at delusions that are unsupportable in light of what we know and continue to learn Not very chapter is strong The part on bad science metaphors is not as interesting as the rest and serves simply as an attack on a view of volution on which he disagrees Those well versed in science might find passages to carp at For A weak book from Dawkins Regardless of his ideas being right or wrong he is a bad writer and here he is worse than Rain (Paper Gods, ever He stumbles from the banal to the sublime to the complex to the simple to the popular to the academic withoutven noticing that One page you are reading a very important theory and in the next paragraph he goes on telling you about a trivial thing that has happened to him the day before Sometimes pages and pages are spent trying to xplain something not important and then when the important thing comes Dawkins treats it as already xplained and leave it as thatOther thing he loves to do and it s just plain bad writing is comparing things one with another As a first step to understand the problem it s ok but he dwells too long on metaphors Ie comparing the human brain to a computer He goes on and on and on until there s no use using the metaphor it becomes harder and harder to believe in him and things become ridiculous The worst part is a link he makes between the The Replacement Wife evolution of the human brain memes and a tango he cannot forget There s a lot of guessing in this book too And some theories are not that credible His criticism of astrology and other spiritual stuff are or less correct and it s something important that must be adressed but he can t write a coherent chapter toxpress his ideas He criticises a bit then talk about other thing then comes a very complex but short paragraph then it s a trivial thing again Damned (Witch Hunt etcThere are some good moments very few but in short very badly written The actual science bits in here are great Learned heaps about the workings of light and colour sound and hearing wasven reminded that the idea of superstitious behavior in animals is attributed to Skinner and not sadly my own idea Much geeky The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines excitementxperienced all round by yours truly Dawkins does a fine job of Hot-Blooded Italians explaining complex ideas clearly and wellThat s what was good about Unweaving the RainbowSadly what feels like way than half of the book was spent painstakingly trying to argue people out of believing in astrology ghosts remote viewingtc using logic and scientific fact Its starts about one third the way in My problem with this is threefold1 Dawkins is assuming that logic and scientific fact would have persuasive power for anyone believing in what he calls superstition or ad hoc magic And really why would it I think believers would be the first to point out that this sort of thing is beyond the purview of science2 Dawkins assumes that these deluded people are reading his book I can t say for sure but personally I would be surprised if a diehard believer in ESP or astrology would be interested in but personally I would be surprised if a diehard believer in ESP or astrology would be interested in Dawkins Mlynowski Teen Thriller explanation of Fraunhofer lines thelectromagnetic spectrum and other fairly hardcore explanation of Fraunhofer lines the Reggie electromagnetic spectrum and other fairly hardcore topics that fill the first third of this book Seems like a different sort of audience So hends up preaching to the choir and there is something rather uncomfortably self righteous about This Not To Mention Dull3 Dawkins I Don T Mean Not to mention dull3 Dawkins I don t mean be unkind but I can t think of any other to state the fact Switchback embarrasses himself when he wanders out of the world of science and into literature and the humanities Critiues of the scientific accuracy of Wordsworth poems or a fantasy story by Mark Twain are cringe makingWhat Dawkins doesn t understand about human psychology is a lot I think his whole crusade against religion has been a waste of a good scientific mind and has done a lot of damage to the discussion His aggressive dismissive and disrespectful approach has only put people on the defensive and set an unfortunatexampleI was hoping for a lot wonder of science Instead I felt like I was getting lectured at length for something I didn t Marrying Marcus (Virgin Brides, even do What do I care about astrologyAnyhow I was hoping for wonders of science and less railing Disappointing Better books on science and wonder that I d recommend One of the Goodreads reviews on this book relates simply that the writer of the review had been on a cruise ship with the author prior to reading the book When she DID read the book she regretted that she didn t do some kind of small violence to his person while on the cruise with himIn many ways that sums up my take beautifully This was the most interesting book I vever despised Certainly I have a brain not suited to the Belonging (Temptation, exigencies of science But when he wasn t losing me in a web of convolutedxplanation he was was looking down his nose at me like a curmudgeonly professor who is inordinately piued that an average undergraduate had the audacity to drop by during office hours and ask a stupid uestionThat said I learned a lot and while I did not become a convert to his thesis that science can be as beautiful as poetry I will admit that were my brain suited to the beauty of say probability I would have been in If Im Found (If I Run ecstasy while perusing the pages of this tome In discussing how we discover our world we arrived by being born and we didn t burst conscious into the world but accumulated awareness gradually through babyhood The fact that we slowly apprehend our world rather than suddenly discover it should not subtract from its wonder And maybe that s where he lost me I haven t accumulatednough awareness to see what he sees And to believe what he believes But condescension does not CaddyGirls encourage me to become aware Itncourages me to shrug and go back to my music or my poetry or my philosophy All of that said there were several aha moments some I never knew tha. Did Newton unweave the rainbow by reducing it to its prismatic colors as Keats contended Did he in other words diminish beauty Far from it says acclaimed scientist Richard Dawkins; Newton's unweaving is the key to much of modern astronomy and to the breathtaking poetry of modern cosmology Mysterie.

T before aha some I never thought about it that way before aha and some I had totally forgotten about that aha Like his analogy about how Philosophy of Religion expansive thearth s past is Fling your

shoulder life consists of nothing but bacteria Many celled invertebrate life flowers somewhere around your right The Spirituality Revolution elbow The dinosaurs originate in the middle of your right palm and goxtinct around your last finger joint The whole story of Homo sapiens and our predecessor Homo Comptia Cysa+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle (Exam Cs0-001) erectus is contained in the thickness of one nail clipping As for recorded history as for the Sumerians the Babylonians the Jewish patriarchs the dynasties of Pharohs the legions of Rome the Christian Fathers the Laws of the Medes and Persians which never change as for Troy and the Greeks Helen and Achilles and Agamemnon dead as for Napolean and Hitler the Beatles and Bill Clinton they andveryone that knew them are blown away in the dust from one light stroke of a nail fileIn my opinion that ualifies as scientific poetry But that s because it takes an idea and sketches it with metaphor and Economies and Cultures examples that are accessible and understandable to my way of thinking And Dawkins too often refuses to stoop to that levelForxample consider this uote from astrophysicist Chandrasekhar beauty is that to which the human mind responds at its deepest and most profound Indeed Of course I left out the beginning of the uote which talks about math and how it relates to nature That s not beautiful to me I understand why it s beautiful to those whose brains process math differently But my brain does not work that way My mind responds to a different beauty Does that make my idea of beauty any less valid Dawkins would undoubtedly say Yes Then he d kick me out of his office and grumble discontentedly as he adjusted his suspenders and wandered back to his deskBut when Dawkins DOES lower himself to my level and speak my language he pulls me right in his discussion on coincidence and how in our multi media age we are likely to see a pattern where there is none was Designing with Web Standards eye opening And his fascinating riff on the fact that science is an affront to common sense made me smile in satisfaction Forxample Sadies Surrender (Oyster Harbor, every time you drink a glass of water you are imbibing at least one molecule that passed through the bladder of Oliver Cromwell there are many molecules in a glass of water than there are glasses of water in the sea solid matterven a hard diamond consists almost Structure Of The Nucleus entirely ofmpty space Another riff that gave me pause was Dawkins take on God s covenant with Abraham He didn t promise Abraham First Anthology eternal life as an individual But he did promise somethinglse And I will make my covenant between me and thee and will multiply thee xceedingly and thou shalt be a father of many nations And I will make thee xceeding fruitful and I will make nations of thee and kings shall come out of thee Abraham was left in no doubt that the future lay with his seed not his individuality God knew his DarwinismThat is what I was looking for in this book Someone with the title Professor of the Public Understanding of Science should really like average thoughtful humans a bit than Dawkins seems to And if one is going to celebrate the diversity of life one should also celebrate the diversity of ways OF LOOKING AT LIFE WE CAN looking at life We can all think diversity of life one should also celebrate the diversity of ways of looking at life We can t all think Dawkins It is hubris of Dawkins to Passage Through Crisis expect all of us to try And to belittle us when we fail Rather he could have made his case for why his way of thinking is a valid and valuable addition to the layers of awareness that allow us to continually find beauty in our universe But to discount and belittle the other ways of finding beauty was a mistake He should have calculated that in some sort ofuation before he published Dawkins makes a strong case for those of us who believe that scientific literacy not only does not have to come at the price of aesthetic appreciation but can actually Science, Technology and Culture enhance it Put another way good science inspires good poetry The sense of wonder we feel when watching the sun set should if anything benhanced if we are aware of the physics of light reaching our retina the 93 million miles the light had to travel to reach us the ability of the light to at times be refracted into a rainbow The Road to Einsteins Relativity etc Science can also correct bad poetry or metaphors he does a good job of showing why an understanding of the arbitrary position of stars light as it reaches us should argue against astrology and is as unrelenting against numerology postmodernism and religious fundamentalism Anyone who appreciates Bill Bryson willnjoy this book The author gives one of the most cogent Black Boy explanations I have read for our propensity to overweight anecdotal statistically insignificantventsMy only gripes about the book were his tendency to assume the reader has as much knowledge of and fondness for Keats and Byron as he seems to have and his apparent impatience for those who lose themselves in their metaphors looking for meaning in random physical Nighttime Sweethearts events I believe only a minority of people can tolerate the anxiety that comes from confronting their smallness in the universe a universe that if it is ruled by a deity does not apparently need to be as Stephen Hawkings so aptly illustrated in a Brief History of Time Have youver while sheltering in space time under threat of a belligerent snippet of information nclosed in a flimsy lipid membrane sat on your porch during the rain and tried to derive from first principles how it is that a rainbow Forms Trying To Discard Trying to discard the things you ve learned about droplets of moisture and the refractive index of light Imagining how you d interpret the phenomenon from a position of scientific ignorance For me this brought to mind two things First that Keats should ve had his testicles artfully tied into a balloon animal and smacked across the forehead so hard that his shoelaces xploded Second this conversation that I had recently with a
