The Periodic Kingdom — A Journey into the Land of the Chemical Elements
I have been enjoying reading this book, partly because I enjoy the honesty of Oxford’s atheist chemist Peter Atkins, and partly because he has been willing to engage with Christians in science debates. Oh, and because I have a copy of his Physical Chemistry textbook on my bookshelf. Atkins writes in The Periodic Kingdom (p.3):
Because our brains are made up of elements, even our opinions are, in a sense, properties of the elements and hence inhabitants of the kingdom.
