More About the Author

I'm a half-and-half creature. Born (1939) son of a Church of England clergyman, from my earliest days I was scientifically inclined. I studied biochemistry at University College London the first year they offered biochemistry as an undergraduate degree course, but then embarked on a career in publishing, as first a book and graphic designer, but then as a medical writer/editor. After that I became a web publisher, but then a novelist. And I've a fair record as an artist/illustrator. I feel myself to be as much invested in science as in the creative arts.

That's given me the nerve to claim I can represent the arts on the matter of evolution. Since 1992 I've been writing novels and stories about the meaning of evolution, starting with "Father, in a Far Distant Time I Find You," a utopian novel projecting the history of evolutionary theorizing to date onto a string of civilizations over the upcoming four thousand years, and including a romantic comedy "Me and The Genies." In 2015 I summed up my concerns with what it means it evolved in a Kindle book titled "What it Means We Evolved: Evolution for artists and the humanities."

So I write books and stories. But I also have written a play, and I perform as a ventriloquist, operating two dummies at the same time, for humanities student groups, see http://youtu.be/h14fao5F_P4. To encourage students of the humanities to come up with new theories of evolution I maintain the website evolutionforthehumanities.com.

Format: Paperback
Claptrap drivel.
Once again, the Intelligent Design movement has found someone willing to apply a thin veneer of respectability to their otherwise failing campaign. This failed self-help author declares himself a scientist with all the credentials of a freshman college student. He is self-published and the entire contents of this book are available free online and in many book stores.

If you're looking for an explanation of the origin of life, you won't find it here. In face, you won't find a coherent theory to set next to Creationism, Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and the Great Green Arkleseizure. This is a tangled web of suppositions and denialism.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John C. Landon on August 4, 2012
Format: Paperback
Discussions of evolution, especially by Darwinists, tend to omit the crucial issues of human psychology, implying with a wave of the hand that natural selection produced anything you can name. But this strategy succeeds only in covering up ignorance. Mr. Johnston makes an important point here by insisting that an account of human evolution must take into account the issue of free will. And this is a problem for reductionist science which assumes a causal substrate to all forms of explanation. The glaring contradiction tends to be glossed over by Darwinists, but it won't go away.
The author has also written SOS (Save our Selves) from Science Gone Wrong, a critique of Darwinian natural selection, praised by Mary Midgley, Robert G.B.Reid, and John Horgan. This book raises the issue of consciousness, which is another blindspot for Darwinian oversimplifications.
