Stephen Hawking's influence in cosmology has been significant. Why put him on trial? The public has a right to investigate Professor Hawking's Grand Design theory about the origin of the universe. Evaluating a theory is the foundation of the scientific method. All scientific research must stand up to exacting scrutiny. This is the reason bestselling author, Pierre St. Clair, extracts science fact from social fantasy via the judgement of 64 renowned physicists.

Religion On Trial

In a concise and devastating style, Craig Parton, an experienced trial lawyer versed in the laws of legal evidence, argues that religions uniformly fail the simplest tests of admissibility for their respective claims. Few religions even bother to make testable assertions, relying instead at best on subjective and existential appeals. The stunningly few historical, and thus verifiable, claims of a precious few religions can be swiftly sorted out, and the result is an astounding vindication of the central nonhearsay claims of the first-century eyewitnesses to the life and work of Jesus Christ. This work challenges the prevailing viewpoint that all religions are making the same, or even similar, allegations. More troubling than this prevailing view is that the religions of the world remain diametrically opposed on the issues of the nature of humanity, the reality of evil, the nature of history, and the way of salvation. Sorting out the clashing claims of religions is the task of this book, and a trial lawyer well schooled in the laws of admissible evidence brings insight and clarity to matters normally thought to be solely in the domain of philosophers and theologians.

Kitty Ferguson, the award-winning and international bestselling author of Stephen Hawking’s biography, presents an even deeper portrait of the legendary physicist’s life and scientific theories. This updated edition of Stephen Hawking: An Unfettered Mind looks at one of the most remarkable figures of our age: the bestselling author of A Brief History of Time, celebrated theoretical physicist, and an inspiration to millions around the world. Ferguson offers fresh insights into the way Hawking thinks and works, his ever-more-imaginative adventures in science at the “flaming ramparts of the world,” the discovery of gravity waves, the blockbuster proposal for “Starshot” to explore the cosmos, and his powerful use of his celebrity on behalf of human rights and survival on earth and beyond. With rare access to Hawking, including childhood photos and in-depth research, Ferguson creates a rich and comprehensive picture of his life: his childhood; the heartbreaking ALS diagnosis when he was a first-year graduate student; his long personal battle for survival in pursuit of a scientific understanding of the universe; and his rise to international fame. She also uses her gift for translating the language of theoretical physics into the language of the rest of us to make Hawking’s scientific work accessible. This is an insightful, absorbing, and definitive account of a brilliant mind and the extraordinary life of a man who always looks towards tomorrow.

"Cosmology on Trial" 0́3 A controversial book exposing problems with Origin of the Universe theoriesThe May/2014 issue of "Scientific American" highlighted a major calamitytheorists working in particle physics admit they're in a state of "confusion"there is "widespread panic" that particle physicists may be barking up the wrong treeScience periodicals, forums, and blog posts suggest revising fundamental principles to resolve the "crisis in physics""Theoretical physics is at a crossroads right now...In a sense we've entered a very deep crisis." Dr. Neil Turok 0́3 Director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics"We need to make a clean break and embark on a search for a new kind of theory that can be applied to the whole universe 0́3 a theory that avoids the confusions and paradoxes, answers the unanswerable questions, and generates genuine physical predictions for cosmological observations." Dr. Lee Smolin 0́3 Renowned physicist and bestselling authorREVIEWS:"If you are interested in coming to grips with just what science knows and does not know about the universe then this book is for you."A. Brennan 0́3 Australia"Scientific progress and complacency go ill together, and St Clair has done a superb job in actually advancing the cause of real science."M. Lyons 0́3 USA"This book simply makes the very strong point that our cosmology of yesteryear was not based on solid evidence, and our cosmology of today isn't either."V. DiCara 0́3 Japan"Cosmology On Trial" examines the case for the origin of the universe like an attorney in a court of lawMajor physicists like Stephen Hawking have to defend the basis for their theoriesThe evidence must be beyond reasonable doubt; similar to the rationale for a jury to decide a casePhysicists still do not fully understand Gravity, the most common force in nature"Cosmology On Trial" is an all-inclusive cosmology journal introducing the reader to many unexplained and unsolved mysteries of the universe.The book reveals that Newtonian physics, General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and String Theory have still not proven whether Gravity is a wave, a graviton particle, or even a fabric of spacetime.Moreover, Gravity is not even included in the Standard Model of Physics although it is ubiquitous.NASA physicists admit that 96% of the matter and energy in the universe is a mystery"As a scientist and as an educator, I like the idea that we believe things because there's evidence." Dr. Richard Dawkins 0́3 Oxford University Professor and Bestselling AuthorIn spite of the fact that 96% of the universe is still unknown, Stephen Hawking declares on national TV: "The scientific account is complete."Can today's cosmology be complete if science only understands 4% of the universe?Cosmologists portray accounts of the universe as scientific (supported by evidence) when they're mostly a cloud of caveats and probabilities.Contrary to popular belief, cosmology and certainty are not in sync.Bestselling author Pierre St Clair explains the current crisis in physics.What science really knows about the universe and the one issue that is never studiedThe most important initiative in physics which scientists ignoreThe five biggest myths of cosmology that are not supported by observation or dataHypotheses lacking verifiable data masquerade as relevant theoriesPierre St Clair is an unbiased investigative journalist who digs deep behind the headlines to inform the uninformed public.Read this detailed analysis of the universe to understand exactly what science does not know about our universe.BONUS: Free videos (included with the book) explain principles of Quantum Mechanics like particle entanglement and the double slit experiment.
