Book Description

Did you know...The claim that "science and faith are enemies" is a myth? The discovery of DNA and its genetic code points squarely to a designer of the universe? The fossil record is a gigantic embarrassment and "headache" for evolution? Darwin's theories are based ultimately on philosophy, not on science?Brace yourself for a scientific earthquake! Strange "tremors" are now coming from science labs. As researchers uncover new levels of astonishing complexity within the cell, they suddenly face a shocking conclusion: Darwin was wrong. This sophisticated complexity could not arise by change; it must have been designed.Darwinism Under the Microscope probes the exciting "Darwinism vs. Design" debate that is making headlines. It lays a scientific foundation for "divine design" and equips the reader to discuss the topic intelligently...even with professors!One of the book's contributing authors, biologist Michael Behe, has done revolutionary work on the cell's tiny molecular machines. His "evidence of design" in Darwin's Black Box triggered an ever-expanding global controversy. Using Darwin's own pass-fail test, Behe concludes:"Darwin's theory has absolutely broken down."Darwinism Under the Microscope explains the "breakdown" and provides the knowledge and skill to share this breaking news with the next generation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Intelligent Science January 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a collection of essays compiled and commentated on by Dr. James P Gills and Dr. Thomas Woodward, designed to refute modern science's pervasive allegiance to macro evolution. Each essay is very thorough and most are quite technical. A scientific background is helpful with some of the chapters, especially the Complexity of the Cell and the Design of the Vertebrate Retina (although both establish the entire point of the authors without any other argument necessary.)

Chapter 5 offers an excellent synopsis of the most relevant evaluations in this ongoing debate. It provides all the major points of the empirical and philosophical critiques of Darwinism in seed form. If you're looking for just the broad overview, this is your chapter!

Chapters 6 and 7 proved to be my personal favorites. Chapter six details the Cambrian Explosion and the Rediscovery of the Burgess Shale both as significant obstacles to current macro evolutionary theory.

In Chapter seven, Thomas Woodward puts Dr. Michael Behe's book, Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, up against Darwin's own words in The Origin of Species. Darwin said,"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." The discovery of molecular biology brought the concept of irreducible complexity to the forefront of the evolutionary debate. Woodward summarizes Behe's position as, "modern evolutionary theory, applying Darwin's own test, flunks spectacularly at the molecular level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! June 26, 2014
An excellent book detailing scientific evidence for creation! The evidence is quite compelling if one is open minded enough to consider the information!

I like this book a lot. It provides an excellent argument integrating the world view of Faith in God with Science. It is a collection of essays by Intelligent Design proponents including some you may have heard of (Dembski, Johnson, Behe, and Thaxton) along with some that I had not personally heard of (Gills, Woodward, Hartwig, and Ayoub). In some cases, the articles were written for other publications and are either reprinted or revised for this book. It is unapologetically Christian referring to Biblical teaching while integrating that with a wealth of evidence. The underlying theme, which is articulated most clearly by Philip Johnson and addressed from various angles by other contributors is that the debate is NOT between Creationism and Evolution but between World Views - Christian faith and Naturalism/Scientific Materialism. They also point out how the Materialist imports his metaphysic into the debate and unjustly skews the debate by unilaterally determining what is allowed, etc.

There is not a whole lot of new stuff in the book. Some of the examples are repeated over and over (irreducible complexity, for one). However, it is very accessible to the reader and even though the discussion gets very detailed in spots, just about any reader can follow it.

One of the real highlights of this book was the chapter by Michael Behe. His first part isn't new, just his concept of irreducibility and the example of the flagellum. However, in the second section, he takes on two people, Kenneth Miller and Russell Doolittle, who have boasted to destroying his irreducible complexity. I had read of this in other reviews and was very happy to find the rebuttals here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Standard antiscientific nonsense September 2, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The brilliant theory of organic evolution of living populations adapting under the principle of natural selection of the fittest is such that if one actually understands it, one is utterly compelled to believe it. Anyone who rails against it simply needs to re-read Darwin's "Origin of Species" and this book would get tossed. I am no believer in book-burning, but I intend to shred my copy as a contribution to the intelligence level of society, lest some impressionable dupe pick it up.

These authors, an eye doctor and a theologian, have no interest whatever in discovering the reality of the matter, but only in promoting their folkloric conclusions that the silly account of creation in their own edition of the Bible amounts to a "theory", rather than the clumsy guesswork and storytelling of illiterate neolithic tribesmen.

They don't even try to disguise their religious slant under the phony rubric of "intelligent design" that others use to fraudulently mask "divine design" and "biblical creationism". They are openly disdainful of science, so one wonders why we should even try to follow their line.

No amount of elaborate demonstrations of technical knowledge and scientific-looking diagrams can mask their core anti-scientific bias. Their entire misdirection centers on a deliberately ignored ambiguity among the various uses of the word "design". They knowingly skip back and forth between calling any complex arrangement a "design" and attributing it to a seeming necessary "designer". They are simply too dull and prejudiced to see the sheer beauty and profundity of Darwin's realization. Rather than the ho-hum work of a designer, all life is the gorgeous result of entirely random processes and historical accidents. Darwinian evolution is a far more stupifyingly magestic account than any crock story of a divine creator.

These disingenuous charatans are indeed monkeys' uncles. Don't waste your money, even for a used copy.
