• The description of creation as it appears in the Bible makes no sense. The first page of Genesis features no humans at all. The substance of heaven and earth arise spontaneously at God's command. Light is mentioned twice, whales appear before birds. Vegetation appears after light, but before day is separated from night.

    Could it be, however, that the creation story in Genesis was written as it was because that is in fact the correct order of events at the beginning of the world? Can science - while agreeing with Darwinian evolution, the big bang theory and the complexity and deep age of the universe - prove the order of events as described in the Bible to be true?

    In The Genesis Enigma, respected scientist Andrew Parker brings the latest discoveries to bear on this controversial and contentious question and reveals in stunning detail how the world and all of the life on it came into being.

  • Le corps humain contient 206 os, est parcouru par plus de 100 000 km de vaisseaux sanguins et produit chaque seconde 25 millions de nouvelles cellules. Il est fait de plusieurs milliards de milliards d'atomes créés durant le Big Bang il y a de cela 13,7 milliards d'années. C'est une source inépuisable d'émerveillement que nous emmenons partout avec nous, et ce tous les jours jusqu'à notre mort, et pourtant la plupart d'entre nous en sait étonnamment peu à son sujet.

    Cet ouvrage de vulgarisation scientifique sur le corps humain offre une illustration claire et immédiatement compréhensible de tous les processus corporels, des plus complexes, comme les connexions synaptiques du cerveau, aux plus étonnants, comme ce que représenterait la matière organique de notre corps décomposée en matières premières de base (allumettes, charbon, or, etc.).
    - Composé d'une palette étonnante d'infographies inédites, il révèle ce qui fait l'unicité de l'être humain en tant qu'espèce, mais aussi ce qui rend chaque être humain unique par rapport à un autre - pourquoi certains sont plus forts, plus rapides, ont une santé plus fragile ou ont les cheveux roux, par exemple - et montre également les processus de transformation du corps humain au fur et à mesure du vieillissement, de la naissance à la mort.
    - Il est structuré en 8 grands parties thématiques qui abordent chacune un domaine spécifique, du corps physique et ses composantes (os, muscles, articulations, etc.) au corps vu par la médecine (qu'est-ce qu'un corps sain ?
    Un corps malade ? comment les cellules deviennent-elles cancérigènes ? etc.).
    - C'est à la fois une source d'informations fiables et un étonnant objet visuel qui explique les dernières découvertes biologiques, neurologiques et chimiques réalisées jusqu'à aujourd'hui.
    Il constitue l'ouvrage idéal pour quiconque s'intéresse aux merveilleux assemblages de cellules qui rendent la vie humaine possible, et est accessible aux plus jeunes grâce à ses illustrations qui attisent la curiosité et l'envie d'apprendre.

  • This book is a contribution to the International Year of Planet Earth arising from the 33rd International Geological Congress, held in Oslo, Norway during August 2008. The first section of the book considers aspects of geochemical processes which led to the development of the solid Earth as it is today. The second portion of the book shows how the rapidly-evolving analytical tools and approaches presently used by geochemists may be used to solve emerging environmental and other societal problems.Thisunique collection of reviews, with contributions from a range of internationally distinguished scientists, will be invaluable reading for advanced students and others interested in the central role geochemistry in the earth sciences.

  • Regardless of whether they';ve heard of jazz or Art Tatum, young readers will appreciate how Parker uses simple, lyrical storytelling and colorful and energetic ink-and-wash illustrations to show the world as young Art Tatum might have seen it. Tatum came from modest beginnings and was nearly blind, but his passion for the piano and his acute memory for any sound that he heard drove him to become a virtuoso who was revered by both classical and jazz pianists alike. Included in the back matter is a biography and bibliography.
