Summary Of The Book There have been innumerable questions that have been raised while talking about merging science and philosophy. Does God exist? Is science somewhere responsible for shaping the faith in God? Our culture and deep rooted values have conditioned us to believe in God, but some still question his existence. So, can one reach a common road between science and spirituality?
With the increasing philosophical scepticism and developments in science, man appeared to lose faith in God. But science itself has proved to be a false god, leaving in its wake a disillusioned and despondent mankind.
