Library: Modern: : Review of R.c. Sproul's not a chance [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||As the chapter headings--and title--reveal, the book is about the role of causation and chance in modern science, and, in particular, in modern cosmology. However, because the book is shot through with serious conceptual confusion, anyone who is interested in actually learning something about the role of causation and chance in modern science is advised to look elsewhere.|
