After a long time I have restarted reading some scientific novels. When I did a brief retrospection into the kinds of books I have ever read, I realized how less scientifically inclined my interests were. I am as ignorant as one who completed with some success his expensive basic studies should never be. This reality had struck me in the past too and relief measures were taken at that time also, but the amplitude of vibrations were too short lived, multiple reasons contributing to this dampening. This time, I start anew, with a strong decision not to allow the negativism to eat my will to work away.
The recent book I am reading is the controversial book from the controversial author. I am reading “The Blind Watchmaker” by Richard Dawkins. He is crazy, I have to admit it or even stress it. He is writing the very same thing most of the biologist knew (whether they accept it or not is up to them), but were never given a second or even a third taught. I have just completed the first chapter of the book. This book takes about the Darwinism, about the very existence of the most complex form of life o this planet or any other planet. This book addresses questions like why we are here and who put us here or put it in another way did someone put us here or that we just happened to be here. Questions go like these, and the answers given in the book are narrative and insightful. He has done a good job of taking pain to explain the things.
In “Explaining the improbable”, the very first chapter of the book, he mainly deals with the complexity of biological things. – Read More>
