The Big Bang Never Happened by Eric J. Lerner 466 pages a Book Review Next - Page 2 Mirror site
Lerner lays bare some painful and embarrassing features of the Big Bang Theory. He covers the history of science in a nutshell, and ventures into other fields related to the human condition, fields that may yet be accessible to inquiry by the scientific method -- the nature of life and other self-organizing systems, Quantum Mechanics and the idea of free will, and the role of echo systems in filtering energy in a cooperative and competitive-cooperative, game-of-life, Gaia world.
Wait until you examine with Lerner his step-by-step exposition of these themes. He begins by mentioning the problems with current Cosmology, the not-so-often advertised problems of Big Bang. Here are some:
The recent COBE satellite's picture of a homogeneous, smooth background radiation (it's apparently not like "looking at the hand of God", after all, contrary to the furor in the press).
The missing matter that scientists have postulated and for which they are now searching. ("Cosmologists decided to represent the density of the universe as a ratio to the density needed to stop the expansion, a ratio they termed 'omega'. If there were just enough matter to stop the expansion, omega would equal 1. It appeared, however, that omega was really about .01 or .02 -- only a few hundredths of the matter needed to stop the expansion of the universe, and far too little to magnify the fluctuations fast enough to form galaxies.") Since this edition of Lerner's book was published, 1995 Hubble data show that so-called brown dwarf stars and smaller ones, which could have helped to supply a substantial amount of matter, do not seem exist in sufficient quantity.
The similarity of Big Bang on to the creation of Genesis, both finite in space and time, both from the void. And both, the author shows, are at odds with observation.
The author describes how the abundance of Helium, Deuterium and Lithium is at odds with observation and provides a better hypothesis.
The (usual) absence of anti-matter.
The existence of extremely large-scale structures, such as the recently, partially mapped 'Great Wall'.

by Eric Drexler
This brilliant work heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment, and makes astounding yet well-founded projections for the future.
by Seth Lloyd
Lloyd, a professor at MIT, works in the vanguard of research in quantum computing: using the quantum mechanical properties of atoms as a computer. He contends that the universe itself is one big quantum computer producing what we see around us, and ourselves, as it runs a cosmic program. According to Lloyd, once we understand the laws of physics completely, we will be able to use small-scale quantum computing to understand the universe completely as well. In his scenario, the universe is processing information. Lloyd's hypothesis bears important implications for the red-hot evolution–versus–intelligent design debate, since he argues that divine intervention isn't necessary to produce complexity and life.
