Cutting edge science mixed with mystery -good read

This interesting story is filled with cutting edge science. The March issue of National Geographic features the CERN Super Collider in Europe that is very like the TORUS of Blasphemy. But when our fictional machine pushes its sub atomic stuff to near light speed, it gets a surprise: a message from God! Or is it really from Him? That is the question of the novel. And such questions always have consequences. Fanatics, religious and otherwise, clash and collide in human explosions in the story. Yet, the book is not anti-religious; it's anti-fanatic. And it should promote healthy skepticism in the blind following of either religious leaders or scientific theorists. Our world desperately needs new energy sources, and it needs truth. Real truth should stand honest and deep investigation. That's the bottom line message I got from Blasphemy. Hawking radiation from micro black holes that such machines as the TORUS might generate could get us over a real energy problem. But controlling such energy is a problem. And controlling the negative energy of fanatics who claim to have the "truth" has always been a problem and a curse. This novel, like its fictional machine, gives rise to dreams and nightmares--and such is the stuff good reading is made of.

Unredeemable, Stupid and Offensive

A novel full of completely unredeemable characters and pages of gibberish the author, who could learn a thing or two by reading the Bible, clearly projects as what he thinks a neo-scientific God might say, but sadly, actually embodies the very real ideas of a modern-day Satan - in fact, I kept reading hoping that in the end, the book would redeem itself by admitting this so-called 'voice of God' was really the voice of the Enemy. But no such luck. Had the bad and misguided 'fanatics' and 'religious people' been balanced with some form of true Christian sanity, it would have been bearable to accept Spates, Crawley & Eddy as the true villains - but the problem is, there is no one else to pull for, so you just pray the whole mountain blows up and no one survives. Unfortunately - they do and we are spared nothing. Yuk - just plain yuk.
