10 Questions Science Can’t Answer Yet

This book is a quick read, but it will give you lots of food for thought.  There are 10 chapters, each addressing a question that science doesn’t have a complete answer for.

Is Fido a zombie? (that is, how intelligent, self-aware and clever are animals?)
Why is time so weird?
Can I live forever please?
What are we going to do with the stupid?
What is the dark side? (think dark energy and dark matter, not Darth Vader)
Is the universe alive?
Are you the same person you were a minute ago?
Why are we all so fat…and does it really matter?
Can we really be sure the paranormal is bunkum?
What is reality, really?

I picked up this book since the title really spoke to me.  I tend to like to read about topics that most people would avoid.  If it raises a question to a fundamental belief that some group has, I’ll read it.  If it tries to rewrite history, I’ll read it.  If it makes you really re-consider something you assumed to be true… I’ll read it.  I’m not sure why, it’s just the topics that really interest me.

I’d suggest you pick up this book if you have a day of traveling ahead of you, and you want to really use that time to think about some big topics.  You should find the writing style witty and enjoyable…I know I did.  Once you’ve read it, tell me what you think.  I’d love an opportunity to discuss this book further!
