What Darwin Ignored . . .
For all his revolutionary insight into the fascinating processes of evolution so useful to current scientific research, health care, and technology, Darwin never seriously confronted the crucial, insurmountable gap in his grand theory between asexual replication and sexual reproduction. Nor could Darwins famed natural selection have provided simultaneous on-time delivery of the first male/female pair of millions of sexually unique species required for evolutions bedrock premise of common descenta fundamental flaw fatal to the romanticized microbe-to-man Evolution Story.
Darwins Secret Sex Problem is a witty, engaging, scientifically sound exploration of perhaps the greatest secret of sexualitythe utter inability of Darwinian evolution to explain its origin (John E. Silvius, PhD, Senior Professor Emeritus of Biology, Cedarville University).
I highly recommend this book by F. LaGard Smith, a nonspecialist whose careful research demonstrates that he understands the crucial issues surrounding evolutions fatal sex problem, and who has a remarkable ability to communicate complex concepts to a broad audience (Geoff Barnard, PhD, MA, retired Reproductive Endocrinologist and Cambridge University Research Scientist).
In PORTRAIT OF AN OBAMA NANNY STATE, F. LaGard Smith presents scores of news reports from the British media documenting Britain's breathtaking descent into a tyrannous democracy dictating every aspect of daily life and threatening even the most fundamental freedoms of faith and expression. Smith warns of a political and cultural tsunami headed across the Pond as the same forces of liberal-Left secularism in America are creating a moral vacuum that can only be filled with rule upon maddening rule, happily imposed by enlightened nannies at every level of society.
Key chapters focus on the impact of a nanny state on the family, education, healthcare, faith, and public morals. The chapters addressing gay rights and the teaching of macro-Evolution drill down deeply into the soul of a nation, exploring the crucial relationship between morality and public policy.
