Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In days of yore, humans believed that lightning bolts were evidence of the gods' wrath; today, of course, we know they are actually a discharge of atmospheric electricity.Might there also be reasonable, rational, scientifically based explanations for phenomena we currently attribute to the supernatural? Yes, says Michael White, author of books on subjects ranging from Stephen Hawking to genetic research to Isaac Asimov, as well as hundreds of articles on cutting-edge science issues. As both a science expert and someone who has had first-hand experience with the paranormal, White is uniquely qualified to discuss the strange and bizarre--to explain the seemingly unexplainable.

With wit, humor and a lucidity of language that makes even the most convoluted subjects accessible to the layperson, white tackles two dozen of the hottest--and most controversial--"inexplicable" phenomena, providing answers to intriguing questions including:

  • Have aliens visited the Earth-and abducted people?
  • Is Atlantis resting in a watery grave and, if so, where?
  • Is there really a way to "create" zombies?
  • How could we see the future?
  • And much more!

Probing into the possible scientific underpinnings of everything from psychic spoonbending to interstellar travel to multiple dimensions, Michael White looks at the weird world of the paranormal, and shows how unbelievable things can remain within the limits of accepted science. Weird Scienceproves that truth certainly is stranger than fiction-and often much more interesting, too.
