Blasphemy | [Douglas Preston]

Blasphemy

The world's biggest supercollider is locked in an Arizona mountain. The Torus was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven?

Publisher's Summary

The world's biggest supercollider is locked in an Arizona mountain. The Torus was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

It is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world's most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius.

Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven?

Twelve scientists under the leadership of a famed Nobel Laureate are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on. And what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest from the team their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world - or save it.

The countdown begins.

    "Anti-Christian"

    This book portrays evangelical Christians as crazy, foaming at the mouth, violent people. It is ridiculous. Other than that the book is predictable and boring.

    "Poor Fiction"

    "Blasphemy" is a poorly done New Age fairy tale. The author himself seemed to lose interest in the story shortly after the opening. If you enjoy fiction that makes sense along the way, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you can tolerate a mediocre to poor story - you will still be disappointed.

    "Disappointed"

    Although the author is talented, I am very disappointed in the disrespectful way he portrays Christians. Yes, there is a small percentage of people out there that are like his characters, but the majority of Christians are not. As for Science? The more scientists try to disprove the Bible the more they end up proving it. Do the research.

    "Blasphemy"

    the subject matter was boaring and the characters fell flat. This author has produced some fine works but this was not one.
