This book was also among the dearest to me as a child.
... and there's one more - Guinnes Book of World Records 1985. I don't have that one anymore, but as the Aspie personality I have I really sucked in that work and knew almost every achieved limit of human life and discovered creation by heart.
Of course I don't think it's wise or realistic to try to convince someone of spiritual reality, as it's not a contradicting view to material scientific atheism, but rather a perspective from where to view material science, and based in personal experience of the nature of life.
I recognize there's this intellectual war going on between secularism and religion. And of course I'm gonna be viewed in that context when I'm sharing a lot of what I've hunted, fished and gathered regarding subjects related to that debate between two opposing views.
I don't see myself in that context though. How could I? I was raised freely in a religiously neutral house hold, and early on grew to see the contradiction and flaws in what often goes under the label religion.
After having been a hard core evangelical atheist from age ~10-21 (1988-1999) I had a personal spiritual experience that revealed to me the simple and most powerful truth behind religion. In doing so it didn't negate the fully material scientific world view I held and preached. It actually fulfilled my scientific pursuit with an understanding of the meaning and aim of evolution.
The way is the goal, like life is the light.
