Book Review: Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design

Slowly but surely we are finding life is more complex than we ever thought. From the review: Darwinism and Materialism: They Sink or Swim Together He quotes the information theorist Henry Quastler who stated that “the creation of information is habitually associated with conscious activity.”

 "Will Stephen Meyer’s Darwin’s Doubt be “the most despised science book” of 2013?"

 "Recently the Discovery Institute’s Stephen Meyer published Darwin’s Doubt, a book that raises many questions about the theory of evolution. As his title tells us, Darwin himself shared one of these doubts. The book has sold well, reaching #7 on the New York Times bestseller list, #4 on the Los Angeles Times list, and #10 on Publishers Weekly." “Darwin said that speciation occurred too slowly for us to see it. Gould and Eldredge said it occurred too quickly for us to see it. Either way we don’t see it.”

"Organisms are intelligently designed, says Meyer, who has a PhD from Cambridge University in the philosophy of science. His book is an education, demanding attentive reading but no specialized knowledge. To a large extent it uses the facts and arguments of professional biologists, some bordering on open dissent from the orthodoxy."

 So we see more support for IDvolution - God “breathed” the super language of DNA into the “kinds” in the creative act.
