Tales of the Rational is an attempt to put in perspective some of the most fascinating scientific and pseudo-scientific claims of the 20th century. The author discusses philosophical issues concerning the way we can know and understand reality, as well as the complexities of the relationship between science and religion. The book includes discussions of creationism and theism, as well as critical accounts of debate with two of the major figures of "scientific" creationism and Christian apologetics. The author does not spare science from a critical examination, discussing the advances as well as the failures of our search for the origin of life, extraterrestrial life, and that all-compassing description of complexity known as chaos theory.
