Hundreds of illustrations. :ul. :li. "As far as I know, Clifford Pickover is the first mathematician to write a book about areas where math and theology overlap. Are there mathematical proofs of God? Who are the great mathematicians who believed in a deity? Does numerology lead anywhere when applied to sacred literature? Pickover covers these and many other off-trail topics with his usual verve, humor, and clarity. And along the way the reader will learn a great deal of serious mathematics." - Martin Gardner :eul. :li.:hp3.THE ALIEN IQ TEST: Are We Up to the Challenge?:ehp3.
