The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery

Author(s): Guillermo Gonzalez


In The Privileged Planet Doctors Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards make a convincing case that the rare, finely-tuned conditions that allow for intelligent life on Earth are no coincidence, and that Earth was practically designed for discovery. While most scientists follow the "Capernican Principle," which displaces earth from the centre of the universe and assumes that the existence of life is unremarkable, Drs. Gonzales and Richards strongly disagree. In fact, they claim that the earth's very location is what makes it both ideal for life, and ideal for observing the world around us. "...a, book that is of once inspiring illuminating, and beautiful. With uncommonly engaging prose, they offer a virtual tour of the marvels of modern science and the discoveries science has brought to light, from geology to cosmology." - George Gilder
