COUNTERING FAITH WITH FAITH. Douglas Preston's Blasphemy allows readers to contemplate the consequences of modeling the universe to within nanoseconds after the Big Bang. Does God speak in the antimatter? Book Review No. 16 will not reveal that. The story itself is not that great, although it might offer insights into the mental makeup of grant-funded scientists, environmental activists, and fundamentalist believers.
