Chapters three and four are particularly strong. Chapter 5 requires more time to really understand than I am able to give it now, as I read the book in a few hours, but the author is obviously intelligent. I have recently read books by evolutionary biologists Richard Miller, Richard Dawkins, and Jerry Coyne, and at the end of the day what it looks like to me is they are bright guys, but they have a deep need to believe the Darwinian story and both interpret and present the evidence in a very biased manner.
Reality is that much of the evidence used to support Darwinism over the last several decades has turned out to be incorrect and in some cases even fraudulent. Haeckel's drawings, Piltdown man, exaggerated claims about the quality of even recent fossils, etc. reveal a scientific community that needs to believe, and really wants everyone else to, not because of where the facts clearly lead, but because Darwinism is their only acceptable alternative.
You can rail against the idiocy of clearly uneducated individuals like me who question evolutionary dogma, but the simple truth is that the evidence isn't very strong, unless you strictly filter it all through a Darwinian lens and/or only read biased sources. And Richard Miller's protestations aside (he says "Evolve That!" Is not a valid argument, but it seems pretty solid to me) there are clearly questions the Darwinists have no idea how to answer. That doesn't mean the theory couldn't be true, but it's kind of sickening to think of how many people believe simply because they've never taken a close look at the other side of the story.
Short but understandable book by Intelligent Design scientists..
