Thinkers such as Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens, and Lawrence Krauss, have vehemently argued that breakthroughs in modern science have irrefutably proven that God does not exist. Now, respected science journalist Amir Aczel has come up with a rebuttal to this narrative of thinking, raising doubts about science’s ability to disprove the existence of God.

Based on interviews with eleven Nobel Prize winners, prominent physicists, theologians and spiritual leaders, "Why Science Does Not Disprove God" provides a fascinating history of science and draws out the religious implications of our expanding understanding of the universe. Can a belief in science and God coexist?
