Axioms is a soon-to-be-published book by Duke University Physics professor Robert G. Brown.
This book appears to be a philosophical commentary which masquerades as being scientific in nature, but ultimately is a re-hash of various Christian apologetic principles.
We're going to discuss aspects of the book from the author's web site: http://www.phy.duke.edu/~rgb/Philosophy/axioms.php
