Gitt, Werner. 2001. Time and Eternity (Zeit und Ewigkeit). Neptune, NJ: CLV. ⍽▢⍽ Before his retirement, the information scientist Werner Gitt (1937-) was Head of the Department of Information Technology at the German Federal Institute of Physics and Technology (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt). What is time? Science is unable to answer this question, tells Dr Gitt. Even so, he seeks to present a concept for understanding time. A surprise to some! The third part of the book deals with human constructs of eternity. However, if time itself cannot be explained tolerably well by a scientist, eternity seems out of his explain-reach too. In the light of such main points, Gitt seems too pretentious and obstinate to "doctrinate". His creationism is not mine.
