Recent release “A Collection of Curious Coincidences: An Exploration of Science and Faith” from Page Publishing author Kenneth Diehl is a thought-provoking look at how science and faith can be combined to provide the most accurate and well-rounded approach to understanding how life began, versus proclaiming that only one train of thought is correct, and the other inferior.

Kenneth Diehl, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science with a minor in mathematics and worked as a software engineering specialist before retiring, has completed his new book “A Collection of Curious Coincidences: An Exploration of Science and Faith”: a profound analysis that attempts to close the gaps between science and faith-based theories behind the existence and creation of life on Earth.

“We live in a divided world. Politics, nationality, customs, economic status, and more seem to be the stuff of contention and conflict. None more so than the zealots that divide our search for and understanding of the truth regarding our existence. On the one hand, we have the naturalists who believe that the entire universe can be explained by science. On the other hand, there are the religious who believe that everything has already been explained through faith. Many in both camps believe that only their view is correct and the other must be wrong. In support of their belief, each side has their rationalizations that serve only to satisfy their own egos and comfort members who already support their opinions,” writes Diehl.

“What if both camps are equally right? What if science and faith are reconcilable? Wouldn't that be interesting?

“This book is an attempt to illuminate beliefs from both camps that appear, quite coincidentally, to be saying the same thing. It is an effort to illustrate how details of what we learn through physics, chemistry, history, archaeology, and other sciences appear to support the broad explanations of what we believe in faith. It is offered as an explanation of how if we really stop to think about what we believe we know, we may find some common ground between the two extremes of faith and science that can stand the scrutiny of criticism. Furthermore, it is not an attempt to evangelize or convert. It is a collection of topics where both science and faith have a lot to say and, to this author's mind, appear to be in tremendous agreement. Hopefully, the discussions herein will prompt greater interest in evaluating our beliefs and encourage the reader to look deeper into their apparent meaning.”

Published by Page Publishing, Kenneth Diehl’s eye-opening tale is inspired by the author’s experiences attending both religious and public schools, which did not allow curious students to look outside their rigid curriculums for answers. Through his writings, Diehl provides readers the tools necessary to draw an understanding that science and faith-based reasoning can go hand in hand, and oftentimes help to prove one another.

Readers who wish to experience this enlightening work can purchase “A Collection of Curious Coincidences: An Exploration of Science and Faith” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
