Overview

The book is the result of more than ten years of studying the arguments for and against the theories of the Big Bang and evolution, a study that also implied the search for the right religion and the true Church of Christ. The book addresses topics such as:- What is the difference between knowing and believing? Do we actually know anything, or do we just believe things?- Can science correctly answer any question?- Are there any limits to what we can learn through scientific experimentation?- Is the earth billions of years old?- How complex is a “simple” cell?- Can the body develop and function without a soul? Can protein folding be explained purely by naturalistic means?- Can life emerge by itself?- Can living beings evolve?- Are there any transitional fossils?- Are there other ancient accounts that confirm the Biblical accounts about the flood and about Joshua's long day?- Which religion is the right one?- What exactly is sin? Is it just a bad deed, or is there a deeper meaning?- What is repentance, and why exactly is there no repentance after the death of the body?- What are heaven and hell in the teaching of the Orthodox Church?- Are there any aliens? Who are they?The book is not a translation, the author wrote the original in both Romanian and English.A few words about the author:Bogdan-John Vasiliu is a software engineer who also studied, privately, physics and biology.
