@Ionus,
Goldilocks Enigma is on Amazon. I think it was also published as The Cosmic Jackpot in some markets. Have a look at some of the Amazon critiques. I personally find his main conclusion rather less credible that belief in God, but, as you know, people will go to any length to avoid contemplating that possibility nowadays.

Incidentally I can almost tie this to the OP because Davies was in fact resident here in Oz for some years prior to his current posting.

@Ionus,
personally, I reckon he can't grow a beard, 'cause he's vegetarian.....

ah yes, you're other point, I was talking about Singer.

I thought Davies was Brit actually but spent quite a bit of time here, first Adelaide, then Sydney....could be wrong though...yes, Brit, checked it in Wikipedia...

Just so long as he got better....I still like him anyway. He asks the right questions without bias. Dont know if I approve of him writing a book and not telling me though...now I have to scrape some pennies together and buy it....some authors are a must for the shelf rather then do a snatch and grab from the library.
