Boy, was I wrong. Prof. Wilder-Smith has marshaled some of the most powerful arguments I have ever seen raised against the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. If you think that "evolution is a proven, irrefutable fact," then you should read this book and figure out how to overcome its incisive questions and well-argued positions.
Particularly strong are chapters 4 and 5, which deal with the genesis of biological information and the questions about how biological systems were programmed via the processes of undirected mutation and natural selection.
In a nutshell, the theory of evolution offers no credible explanation for how undirected material processes (e.g. of physics and chemistry) can create a code, along with an encoder and decoder mechanism. Thus, when you see a code, along with an encoder and decoder, then you have found almost irrefutable evidence that an intelligent being existed to create the encoder, code, and decoder.
It may sound immodest, but I had independently developed this line of argument (in a currently unpublished manuscript) before I read this book. I must update my own work now, to include this book as a citation and add some of its observations. I have not yet seen these arguments addressed or rebutted in the pro-evolution literature.
If you are a skeptic of evolution, then you'll find ample new ideas and insights here. This is not a mere rehash of dinosaurs and fossils.
This book is fairly easy to read, as science-oriented books go. Few if any math equations appear, and most jargon terms are defined in the text somewhere (use a yellow marker to assist your recollection). It is easier to read than Prof.Read more ›
God bless you Dr. A.E. Wilder-Smith for you will be rewarded greatly for your research and devotion,
your brother in Christ,
Here are some quotations from this 1981 book:
"Darwin's cancelling out of know-how or logos from the biogenetical equation is experimentally unjustified, for every attempt at artifically creating life in a laboratory proves that scientists, without exception, attempt to synthesize the machine of life from matter using matter, energy, and know-how..." (Pg. 7)
"The ocean is thus practically the last place on this or any other planet where the proteins of life could be formed spontaneously from amino acids." (Pg. 14)
"Without exception all Miller's amino acids are completely unsuitable for any type of spontaneous biogenesis. And the same applies to all and any randomly formed substances and amino acids which form racemates." (Pg. 16)
"The total energy available for work within the system will tend to decrease generally and steadily.Read more ›

If you have the ability or intelligence to understand what Mr Smith is saying, you have to believe in God. Add it all up and there has to be a Creator!!Published on April 4, 2014 by Ryan E Loss
