Calculating God by Robert J. Sawyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A very hit-and-miss work which sets itself up well (even though the entire subplot featuring Christian fundamentalists - itself quite one-sided - could be excised) but then the book takes a sharp shift a few chapters before the end, accelerating events madly towards a rather muddled and unsatisfying conclusion.
I thoroughly enjoyed the creationist/evolutionist arguments, the science (and the science fiction) was grounded and well explained, and the main characters of the two palaeontologist (a human atheist and an alien theist) were likeable and believable.
