The ideas of Darwin are so deeply woven into the lives of almost everyone, they will continue to be explored, explained, and critiqued from different perspectives. This book presents an overall scientific critique of Darwin’s theory of evolution in a way that is accessible to laypersons, contains novel material and new perspectives that may interest even insiders within the scientific community, and offers an alternative viewpoint to standard modern evolutionary thinking.
What science has to say about the nature of life has implications for more than just an elite group of experts. The question of life’s origin and development influences every human being’s self-understanding and indeed lies at the foundation of how we each build ideas of what is true and false, right and wrong, important and unimportant, and about the meaning of existence.
In this book, assisted by Jonathan Wells, Michael Behe, William Dembski, and Michael Cremo, the author first offer the reader an understanding of what Darwinism and Intelligent Design are. Next, while agreeing with the basic ideas of Intelligent Design, the author goes one step further by examining evidence normally not a direct part of the Intelligent Design discussion – in particular, studies of consciousness, parapsychological phenomena, inspiration, and evidence pointing to a conscious self that can exist apart from matter.
