A God That Could Be Real: Spirituality, Science, and the Future of Our Planet comes from a philosopher of science who is also a lawyer and a lifelong atheist, who discovered that imagining the presence of a higher power in her life offered new opportunities. Her husband was a famous astrophysicist who was creating a new theory of the universe based on dark matter. And here's where it gets interesting: A God That Could Be Real could not have come about were it not for these two personalities and their two discoveries interacting in a new way to create something different in terms of scientific and spiritual intersections of thinking. This book avoids the usual arguments for God in favor of discussing science-based findings, collective behavior patterns, and the concept of God as an "emergent phenomenon" in each person. With such an interpretation God didn't create the universe so much as creating its meaning. The result is a satisfying, unique blend of philosophy, science and religion which is perfect for a wide range of readers.
