An Interview with physicist Victor Stenger
In his new book, God and the Folly of Faith: The Incompatibility of Religion and Science, physicist Victor Stenger presents historical, philosophical and scientific reasons why the two aren’t compatible. Stenger is a retired elementary particle physicist and author of eleven books, including the 2007 New York Times bestseller God: The Failed Hypothesis, How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist. After discussing early Greek thought, Arabic science and other historical events, Stenger considers modern scientific philosophy. He also discusses the fallacy of the fine-tuning argument and the bad science used by Intelligent Design proponents. For more information and a complete list of Stenger’s books, see his web page here.
