    If you like to lay awake at night wondering where we came from this is the perfect book for you You'll have many things to think aboutWhere does consciousness come from anyway?

    Like Signature of Controversy this is another slim book from Discovery Institute And also like Controversy I think it is overshadowed by Stephen Meyer's just released Darwin's Doubt This volume collects essays by Ann Gauger and Douglas Axe whose work is covered in detail in Meyer's new book Basically Gauger and Axe have studied the amount of genetic change necessary to create novel genes Long answer short the time necessary for neo Darwinistic processes to produce the reuired mutations is astronomical Combine that with the fact that new traits reuire multiple new genes and we have a problem I think this volume has substance than Controversy and while it deals with some of the same material in Meyer's book it also focuses specifically on human origins which Meyer hasn't written about So check Science and Human Origins 12 out if you like Meyer's books and would like to read about the actual work done gene mutation and the 'combinatorial space' that separates different functional genes It's short enough to read in a sitting or two

    I don't know why darwinist doesn't consider Discovery Institute's work as authentic though their works are based on authentic and peer reviewed articles Is it simply because they want to prove Intelligent design ID hypothesis?I have to choose one of the two choices 1 Either darwinists are extreamly biased2 Or they are just blind to skip the works other than modern synthesis I prefer to say neo darwinismID neither disprove common ancestry nor darwinists They are just trying to prove that origin of life isn't blind disorganized or unguided And the works of the darwinists are overwhelmingJust because they support ID doesn't mean that all of their works are invalid Thats simply a cognitive error

    Discovery Institute does it again On the plus side mercifully short book For anyone interested a thorough review of the book can be found online by Paul McBride He brings up an excellent point; I have been left wondering why the Discovery Institute or intelligent design advocates in general or biblical literalists feel a need to try and accommodate science when they have a belief in a supernatural entity capable of breaking natural laws Review starting with chapter five because it has links to all the chapters

    My ratings of books on Goodreads are solely a crude ranking of their utility to me and not an evaluation of literary merit entertainment value social importance humor insightfulness scientific accuracy creative vigor suspensefulness of plot depth of characters vitality of theme excitement of climax satisfaction of ending or any other combination of dimensions of value which we are expected to boil down through some fabulous alchemy into a single digit

  6. Adrian Gonzales Adrian Gonzales says:

    Nice readThough difficult to understand the science at times this book is essential reading by world class scientists These are not research studwnts pushing an agenda I loved this short work and really wonder at the refusal of darwinian scientists to look at the evidence

    Easy read

  8. Jerry Mahn Jerry Mahn says:

    Interesting book good arguments However in the first couple of chapters I wanted about the scientific studies the authors use to support their arguments I felt like they were saying Here is what we believe and there are a number of studies that support this I wanted to say Tell me about these studiesThen in the last chapter it was just the opposite As I'm not a scientist getting very technical in language will lose me This chapter did just that It was very technical and I really didn't understand the points being made I really wanted a middle ground Give the arguments summarize the studies doing so in layman's language where possible

  9. Yahia Tabaza Yahia Tabaza says:

    What I liked in this book is that it was full of citations so you can simply refer to any of those citations instead of just accusing its writers and dubbing them as liars Also it was uite convincingI've Finished it in less than 5 hours it was great

  10. Kevin Franklin Kevin Franklin says:

    Very good read Sets the record straight on adam and eve and the whole fossil record of human origin It refutes the idea that science has confirmed the Darwinian theory of the origin of man Definitely worth the time
