About the Author
Jonathan Wells has received two Ph.D.s, one in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and one in Religious Studies from Yale University. He has worked as a postdoctoral research biologist at the University of California at Berkeley and the supervisor of a medical laboratory in Fairfield, California. Dr. Wells is also the author of Charles Hodge's Critique of Darwinism (Edwin Mellen Press, 1988), Icons of Evolution: Why much of what we teach about evolution is wrong (Regnery Publishing, 2000), and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design (Regnery, 2006).

A Big Plus: The last chapter is dedicated to a note like overview, eliminating the need to take notes.
I enjoyed this one.
Jonathan Wells is one of my most favorite biologists. He's not afraid to present the truth!
My talent is an ability to observe trends. Pay special attention to this one.
I have noticed that the atheistic evolutionists are typically at each other’s throats, with each one of them having their own unique version of the theory of evolution that got them fame, fortune, book sales, and tenure. What does this tell me? It tells me that NONE of the atheistic evolutionists have the truth – they are each making up things out of thin air as they go along.
Now for the contrast. I have noticed that ALL of the Intelligent Design proponents are surprisingly well in-sync. What does this observation tell me? It tells me that, together as a group, they are quickly approaching THE TRUTH. The truth will be in-sync with all other truths. That’s what we are now observing among all the Intelligent Design proponents.
We are witnessing a paradigm shift.
Thomas Kuhn had this to say about paradigm shifts: “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
This is what is happening now around the world in regards to the old paradigm, The Theory of Evolution, and the new paradigm, Intelligent Design. The new generation is seeking out and learning Intelligent Design, even though they can’t get it in their Biology classes. Meanwhile, we are waiting for the old evolutionists to die. The Theory of Evolution is already dead – it has already lost; but, we are still waiting for the old atheists (who made their fortune and fame from the theory) to die. When they die, the new generation will be free to accept the truth.
If you are searching for reality, particularly the True Reality of things, you will NOT find it through the theory of evolution. Macro-evolution or spontaneous generation or abiogenesis has NOTHING to do with reality. It’s unrealistic magic of the worst kind. It would take a God to do such things for real.
We ALL know from personal observation that there is NO such thing as macro-evolution or spontaneous generation. If macro-evolution were true and if spontaneous generation really did exist, then periodically your spaghetti dinner would come alive on you, sprout wings, and fly away quoting Shakespeare as it goes. The existence of a real live Flying Spaghetti Monster would be conclusive proof that macro-evolution and spontaneous generation are real and true. But, NONE of these things exist in reality. There is NO such thing as macro-evolution, spontaneous generation, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster – it takes a God to make such things happen for real.
Atheism of any kind is based upon a refusal to look at evidence, a refusal to look at common sense.
