It seems like "cosmism was simply adopted by the astrophysicists of the 20th and 21st centuries. On a more serious note, thanks for pointing to this book. Gribbin's web site contains some interesting reading material.

Very interesting points on Gribben's book...the creation mysteries are seemingly endless..er literally. One aside though, as the Gospel Doctrine lesson that covers Moses states:

a. Moses 1:1–11. Moses sees God and talks with him face to face. Moses learns
that he is a son of God in the similitude of the Only Begotten of the Father.
Note: Class members should understand that Jehovah, not Heavenly Father,
appeared to Moses in this vision. Jehovah was the premortal Jesus Christ
and the God of the Old Testament. He is one with his Father in purpose and
represents him in power and authority. His words are those of the Father,
and sometimes, as in Moses 1:6, he speaks in the first person for the Father.

Thanks for the comments. Believe, I checked out Gribbin's website. I didn't know he did a biography of Feynman.

Richard, hard to know what to make of some of the commentary that shows up in LDS manuals. Here is Moses 1:6, which makes that odd reading of who is speaking tough to defend.

And I have a work for thee, Moses, my son; and thou art in the similitude of mine Only Begotten; and mine Only Begotten is and shall be the Savior, for he is full of grace and truth; but there is no God beside me, and all things are present with me, for I know them all.
