Rooting for the "Truth"… God and the Astronomers

“In God and the Astronomers, Dr. Robert Jastrow, world-renowned astrophysicist, describes the astronomical discoveries of recent years and the theological implications of the new insights afforded by science into mankind’s place in the cosmos. He explains the chain of events that forced astronomers, despite their initial reluctance (“Irritating,” said Einstein; “Repugnant,” said the great British astronomer Eddington; “I would like to reject it,” said MIT physicist Philip Morrison) to accept the validity of the Big Bang and the fact that the universe began in a moment of creation.”


While listening to a recent and fascinating Youtube talk between Ravi Zacharias, Dennis Prager and Jeff Foxworthy (Posted below) this book came up in the discussion.  One of the points referenced in the book is that scientists, within the last 20 years, have begun to root for the evidence they prefer, as opposed to an honest pursuit of the truth where the evidence leads.  This seems an excellent book for the critical thinker who wants the truth at all costs.  Bit expensive, but just letting everyone know.  And yes, let our faith, whatever it is, be based on evidence and reason.
