The split between man and maker has long been widening, and many acknowledge that the wedge is science
Is God dead? Are religion and faith merely opiates of the masses? Is science responsible for driving a wedge between man and his maker? Till about four hundred years ago, belief in divine power dominated world thought. With developments in science and increasing philosophical scepticism, man appeared to lose faith in God. But science itself has proved to be a false god, leaving in its wake a disillusioned and despondent mankind.In Code Name God, Mani Bhaumik, one of the pioneers of LASIK, the technique that made corrective eye surgery possible, demonstrates how both spirituality and science are essential for human beings and how one can strike a perfect balance between the two. The author, who as a youngster lived in Mahatma Gandhi’s camp, details his incredible rags-to-riches journey and his equally remarkable search for meaning in life, which make for a motivational saga as he strives to achieve the golden mean between science and spirituality.
Enriching and inspirational, Code Name God provides a simple and easy-to-understand scientific approach to faith and God-realisation.
