    1. This was a disappointing read. The premise of the novel involves the debate about whether "science"or "religion" is true or if both can be. This is presented inside a story, which falls flat because there isn't much of a story. While the book starts off quite interesting with a contest, it quickly drops into mostly discussions (some repeated in the novel) with the characters pontificating what the reader is supposed to learn.

    2. Spirituality vs. Science. I hear the words and my ears prick up. It’s probably the most argued, most personal and most divisive debate of all time. With it comes the one question most everyone will ask, the one question that seldom gets answered because both sides usually end up killing each other: Is there a God?
