Fourth Nobel Laureate Endorses The Bible According to Einstein

    The number of scientists endorsing the "science bible of the new millennium" continues to grow. The back cover of The Bible According to Einstein: A Scientific Complement to the Holy Bible for the Third Millennium (Jupiter Scientific Publishing, 1999) lists praiseworthy statements from three Nobel laureates, the President of the American Anthropological Association, the physicist and best-selling author Michio Kaku, and the Chair of the Chemical Sciences of the New York Academy of Sciences. Now a fourth Nobel laureate, Tsung-Dao Lee (Columbia University) has endorsed the book, saying that it "provides a delightful portrayal of the workings of the universe, a universe governed by natural laws and profound symmetries."

    The timing could not be better. Jupiter Scientific recently sold the rights to translate the book into Chinese, thereby making the extraordinary 634-page tome available to the more than one billion readers in China. Dr. T. D. Lee, who is Chinese born, is one of the most respected physicists in the world. In 1957 at the age of 31, he became the second youngest scientist ever to win the Prize. The Nobel committee honored him for his work on the violation of parity symmetry – the fact that the nature does not appear to be the same when viewed in a mirror. "We are extremely please that a scientist of Dr. Lee's stature has praised the book," said Gezhi Weng of Jupiter Scientific Publishing.

    The Bible According to Einstein adopts the structure and language of the Holy Bible but replaces religion with science. A history of the Universe, Earth and life is narrated in its "Old Testament" while the laws of nature and the principles of science are presented in its "New Testament." Dr. Lee joins a second Chinese born Nobel laureate, Samuel Ting (now at MIT), who describes the book as "fascinating."
