I was personally amused at Kaku's comment about a "cosmic accident" when he came to section about the Goldilocks Zone. An entire book written to explain that all of the universe -- all of the universes -- can be reduced to an inch and a half mathematic equation, where everything has a reason and purpose; and yet all of the events that make Earth possible and livable are just an accident?
On pg. 358 Kaku questions how a mathematical equation explaining the universe can give a personal meaning to humanity, I didn't see his point. (Of course, I don't understand a lot of his points ....but that's an aside) I think it is possible to have one mathematical equation explain it all and still have there be meaning or purpose to our lives. I don't understand why you can't have both. Again, I just don't get it.

T, can you give me the Bible reference? I would like to read it in context. No pressure. I'll understand if you don't remember. I have never been able to give out the exact verses when I have been asked.
