Spetner claims research findings like these which don't fit approved doctrine are simply ignored by evolutionary biologists. That charge is echoed with gusto by renowned biologist Lynn Margulis, who issues scathing denunciations of their obscurantist tactics in "Slanted Truths." She believes the "stranglehold" of the Darwinian "religious movement" can only be broken by a rational counter-force from outside the fold. Spetner's authoritative book is an ideal instrument for this deliverance.Read more ›
This books delves into the total improbability of such a crazy theory and exposes the major issues with it while giving you the real science.
The author's argument focuses on what is known as macro-evolution (speciation and the broad development of bio-diversity) rather than more modest and widely accepted micro-evolution (variation within existing species - dogs, bacteria, etc.). Some would argue that this division is arbitrary, and, the two categories are in fact just different aspects of the same process (i.e. a collection of small micro-evolutionary steps culminate in macro-evolutionary change) - Spetner disputes this view.
The application of statistical probability and information theory to NDT is enlightening. Spetner makes a strong argument for the improbability of NDT when it is examined at sub-cellular level. The author uses statistical probability to argue that macro-evolution is vastly more unlikely that many events that are commonly considered to be impossible. Although these types of arguments will not likely carry the day with orthodox Darwinists - they can be quite powerful to the uninitiated.
The author applies his rigorous analysis to many aspects of evolutionary theory with similar effect. For example, Convergence (independent development of similar features - wings, echo location, eyes, etc.) has long been recognized as an ackward fit for NDT. Again, applying statistical analysis, Spetner notes that the likelihood of these features developing independently through random mutation and natural selection is almost incomprehensible.Read more ›

good book, but sort of a boring presentation.. Much preferred Denton's original "Evolution: Theory in Crisis".Published on August 18, 2014 by James J. Denike
A very well presented argument. Does not just expose the flaws and short-comings of the popular theory of evolution, also presents an option that works with current scientific data... Read morePublished on June 11, 2014 by Donald P. Jane
