Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: How does the cosmos do something it has long been thought that only gods could achieve? How does an inanimate universe generate stunning new forms and unbelievable new powers without a Creator? How does the cosmos create? That’s the central question of a book that in its original edition was called profound, extraordinary, provocative, mind-bending, and daring.

Author Howard Bloom takes you on a scientific expedition into the secret heart of a cosmos you’ve never seen. Not just any cosmos.  An electrifyingly inventive cosmos. An obsessive-compulsive cosmos. A driven, ambitious cosmos. A cosmos of colossal shocks. A cosmos of screaming, stunning surprise.  A cosmos that breaks five of science’s most sacred laws. Yes, five.

At the end of this intellectual thrill-ride is a whole new theory of the beginning, middle, and end of the universe—the Bloom toroidal model, also known as the big bagel theory—which explains two of the biggest mysteries in physics: dark energy and why, if antimatter and matter are created in equal amounts, there is so little antimatter in this universe.

Called “truly awesome” by Nobel Prize–winner Dudley Herschbach, this paperback edition of The God Problem  will pull you in with the irresistible attraction of a black hole and spit you out again enlightened with the force of a big bang. Be prepared to have your mind blown.
