Publisher's Summary

More than 30 years after his landmark book Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (1985), biologist Michael Denton revisits his earlier thesis about the inability of Darwinian evolution to explain the history of life. He argues that there remains "an irresistible consilience of evidence for rejecting Darwinian cumulative selection as the major driving force of evolution." From the origin of life to the origin of human language, the great divisions in the natural order are still as profound as ever, and they are still unsupported by the series of adaptive transitional forms predicted by Darwin. In addition, Denton makes a provocative new argument about the pervasiveness of nonadaptive order throughout biology, order that cannot be explained by the Darwinian mechanism.

Wow

This is a masterpiece, rising above other intelligent design literature for its sheer scope, It’s breath of vision is profound, Denton’s prose is also some of the densest and uses challengingly precise vocabulary. The only criticism is he is not writing for the average person But for those in the fields of evolutionary biology, and philosophy of science. Stick with it through the dense parts, the end is worth it.

A logical and evidentiary challenge to Darwin

extremely interesting and well-organized argument using scientific discoveries to counter the premise of neo-darwinism. also and open-minded construct to being wrong, unlike so many ardent Darwin supporters.
