Arthur Ernest Wilder-Smith (1915-1995) was an organic-chemist, humanitarian, lecturer and an author on young earth creationism. He also wrote books such as Man's Origin, Man's Destiny: A Critical Survey of the Principles of Evolution and Christianity, The Creation of Life: A Cybernetic Approach to Evolution, He Who Thinks Has to Believe, and The Natural Sciences Know Nothing of Evolution.

Here are some quotations from this 1987 book:

"The alternative we offer here to Darwinian theory remains strictly scientific in that it recognizes one vital fact: the necessity of factor 'I' (informational effects) before any machine can be generated from raw matter. This generalization comprises and includes biological mechanisms. We offer no explanation as to the source of factor 'I.' ... It would need therefore genuine revelation to solve the problem of the origin of factor 'I'... In this volume we offer no speculations on the origin of these suprise effects---though we do give some scientifically valid hints." (Pg. vi)
"Simple machines ... CANNOT evolve upwards by Darwinian creative mutations followed by natural selection, simply because they do not reproduce." (Pg. 6)
"The circumstance that information is, by definition, a genuine 'surprise effect' means, in the last analysis, that information as such is not derivable from known natural law." (Pg.

This was written years ago, and it seems clear as you read it. It's interesting that the arguments he used were around even then. Maybe he helped to come up with some of them.

I won't rewrite the book here. Suffice it to say that if you want a book that uses science to show that information could not have come around using naturalistic means, I think you'll find a good case of it in this book.

Verified Purchase
It is an interesting and courageous exposition about the origins of life. In the beginning it seems to contain a religious focus but if you read it until the end you will see a frank scientific point of view. This book also shows that the Neo-Darwinian vision of the biogenesis is at the real religious side, forcing and pushing pseudo-scientific arguments and des-considering so many facts that deny this theory. This book really challenges our established world views. Read it with an opened mind.
