Synopsis: The awesome beauty of nature lured ancient people to explain the world with myths, illumined by art. The mathematical beauty of modern science emerged from the mystical beauty of these spiritual stories. Today, Einstein's language of mathematics frames the evolution of the beautiful universe. Charles Darwin explained the evolution of "forms most beautiful" by variations and the natural selection law in 1859. Nevertheless, the intelligent design community still doubts Darwin. How could a process having randomness lead to life and even beauty? Dr. Carr shows how randomness coupled with law is creative, as evidenced by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot's recent discovery that fractal geometry permeates nature's beauty, from snowflakes to the branching of plants and lungs. Both fractals and evolution are characterized by the interplay of chance and necessity. This interplay can be extended to science and spirit. The scientific account of the origin of the universe complements that of spiritual stories. Each can be beautiful in its own way, because spiritual and scientific stories have different purposes. Spiritual stories answer "why" and give guidance and motivation for living now and in eternity. Scientific theories explain "how," give a coherent rational account of measurements, and make predictions. Integration of the "how" with the "why" can lead to a beautiful new story that transcends national and cultural differences. Nature's intrinsic beauty can motivate its conservation. "Whether a reader is interested in beauty, in nature, in science, in technology, in religion/spirituality/theology, or in all of them, Paul Carr's exquisitely illustrated volume is bound to provide intellectual enrichment and aesthetic enjoyment." --K. Helmut Reich, Ph. D., Professor, Rutherford University & Senior Research Fellow Emeritus, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
