The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day

The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement DayThe Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I love the Discworld series. I like science well enough. However, for a book that claimed that gods are fantasies that people insist on believing and religion just a way to control the people’s minds, there was quite a lot of preaching. The scientific chapters went on and on about scientific principles that I, with only a high school science education could barely understand. The Discworld chapters were the only reason I kept reading this book instead of dropping it. Even then, the characters seemed more like avatars to carry a message rather than characters in a story. Even the main Discworld characters seemed unimportant to the true message: Science is the way forward for mankind, turn away from religion or at least from belief in things that have no physical, rational or logical existence. At least, in my opinion, that seemed to be the message.
