    The Language of God

    Francis S. Collins
    Apologetics
    3.79 (12,341)

    Does science necessarily undermine faith in god? or could it actually support faith? beyond the flashpoint debates over the teaching of evolution, or stem-cell research, most of us struggle with contradictions concerning life's ultimate question. we know that accidents happen, but we believe we are on earth for a reason. until now, most scientists have argued that science and faith occupy distinct arenas. francis collins, a former atheist as a science student who converted to faith as he became a doctor, is about to change that. collins's faith in god

    But so The Language of God, it really inspired me because I had no idea that a scientist of his stature could have such a devout faith

    The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. it expands upon otto warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. however, warburg did not link his theory to the hallmarks of cancer and thus his theory was discredited. this book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. brain

    The Screwtape Letter s

    C.S. Lewis
    Religion
    4.23 (375,533)

    Who among us has never wondered if there might not really be a tempter sitting on our shoulders or dogging our steps? c.s. lewis dispels all doubts. in the screwtape letters, one of his bestselling works, we are made privy to the instructional correspondence between a senior demon, screwtape, and his wannabe diabolical nephew wormwood. as mentor, screwtape coaches wormwood in the finer points, tempting his "patient" away from god.each letter is a masterpiece of reverse theology, giving the reader an inside look at the thinking and means of temptation.

    The Language of God, it really inspired me because I had no idea that a scientist of his stature could have such a devout faith. And that kind of influenced me and got me to reread some older books I read by C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters. The screwtape letters is great.

    Before the invention of insulin, type 1 diabetic (t1d) patients were advised to avoid sugar and starch (carbohydrate) and to eat a very low carb, ketogenic diet to control blood sugar.in contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with large doses of insulin. this -eat carb and take more insulin- method increases the cost of diabetic care and does nothing to protect the patient from symptoms and complications. worse, it exposes t1d patients to the real danger of a fatally low blood-sugar episode
