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.

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.

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

Did you know that:

--Evolutionists shirk their responsibility for explaining how it all started (19, 82-83,120)?
--there is a lack of fossil evidence (20, 24, 85, 96-97, 116)?
--that Evolution is never seen today (18)?
--that Newton and Pasteur were Creationists, so we should be Creationists too (21, 64)?
--that the Cambrian explosion causes a problem for Evolutionists (25, 96)?
--that Kettlewell's study of moths does not prove macroevolution (11, 83)?
--that dog breeders have been operating for hundreds of years, and all they ever get is more dogs (91)?
--that Haeckel was a mean ugly man for publishing those distorted embryo drawings (13)?
--that Evolutionists have never come up with an explanation for eye development which the Creationists will listen to (41, 51)?
--that mutations are always harmful (55)?
--that Evolutionists don't mention God in their writings, which means that they don't believe in God (86, 120)?
--that "punctuated equilibrium" is nothing more than an apology for poverty of transitional fossils (104)?

If you've already heard all this, then you've already read the first half of the book.

No, wait--there is one new twist which I haven't seen before: Chapter 4, written by a guest writer, gives a description of DNA molecules. You are supposed to gasp in amazement at the wonder and complexity of the DNA molecule, and declare that nothing short of an all-wise and all-powerful designer could ever create such a thing.

You are also supposed to forget that DNA is described in every freshman biology textbook, and is surely familiar to every biologist, no matter what his persuasion.
