    In Why Do Onions Make Me Cry , I enjoyed the variety of questions tackled by the author I was expecting the answers to be straightforward with a quick summary expanding it, but instead I was pleasantly surprised to see the author take time to share studies, theories, and information tidbits that developed the topic in such an in depth and interesting way that even if the reader had already been familiar with the topic, the material had new thoughts and was engaging for them The illustrations, did you know s and try it s even further pulled me in as a reader.But at the same time, I was sharply reminded how a view of science through a believer in evolution permeates so much of their thought process and rationalism How depressing and limiting is the view that humans are just another animal As I am a Christian and believer in a God created universe, my enjoyment in the reading of this book written from such a perspective was greatly hampered I definitely had some Huh I never knew that moments where I had to set down the book and wander off in search of someone to share my newly enlightened thoughts with This book is a gold mine of such info nuggets, and for that, the nerdy part of me rejoiced For prospective readers, a quick content warning about some guy humor and choice in topics that would make me place the book in a for adult category FTC Disclosure I received a copy of this book for promotional purposes from Netgalley I was not required ...
