“From childhood everyone directly grasps that life is designed - until they’re talked out of it by a culture saturated with materialism. Using the latest science, molecular biologist Douglas Axe shows why you don’t have to be an expert to trust your firm knowledge of the wonderful design of life.” (Michael J. Behe, author of Darwin's Black Box)
“Undeniable is an important addition to the debate on the origins of life. It provides a middle way between religious and scientific explanations of how life began. A must-read for everyone who is interested in the origins of our universe.” (The Washington Book Review)
“Great scientists are as much artists as scientists. Enchanted by the beauty of the world, they see through ideologies to facts. In this engaging book, Axe uses ‘common science’ to consider the biggest mystery: To what or to whom do we owe our existence? I greatly enjoyed it.” (Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author)
“Douglas Axe’s Undeniable is bold, insightful and world-changing. It’s also a joy to read. I recommend it highly!” (Phillip E. Johnson, Professor Emeritus of Law at U. C. Berkeley and author of Darwin on Trial)
“Highly rigorous yet passionate, lyrical, forthright, refreshingly brief and accessible, Undeniable is an urgently needed addition to the library of books on intelligent design.” (Evolution News)
“In Undeniable we are privy to a first-hand account of the evidence for intelligence and the painful professional cost of swimming against the flow of accepted but un-proven truth. A must-read.” (Gerald Schroeder, author of The Science of God and God According to God)
“Microbiologist Douglas Axe makes a case for intelligent design over and against the dominant secular materialism that pervades the scientific community. Whether one is an atheist, agnostic, or a theist, Undeniable adds another exciting voice to a lively debate.” (Reading Religion, A Publication of the American Academy of Religion)
“Probably the most engaging book I have read in the past ten years, because of Dr. Axe’s clear explanations and profound insights. This is an important book, perhaps the best one in existence, for anyone who takes origins questions seriously, whatever their perspective.” (Chuck Garner, Professor of Organic Chemistry at Baylor University)
“Axe has carefully crafted a case that strongly favors our human intuition that life was designed, demonstrating why unguided evolution is improbable in the extreme. This book’s power to convince surpasses that of everything I’ve read on origins science in my sixty-five years as an engineer, biophysicist, and physiologist.” (Mark C. Biedebach, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Biological Sciences, California State University, Long Beach)
“Undeniable makes a compelling case by a molecular biologist that living organisms were designed by an intelligent agent, i.e. God. A decisive blow at the foundations of the materialistic explanations of the origin and diversity of life’s forms that have dominated biology for 200 years.” (Donald Ewert, PhD, Director of Research at the Hough Ear Institute and Former Wistar Institute Research Scientist)
From the Back Cover
“To what or to whom do we owe our existence? This has to be the starting point for people who take life seriously—whether scientists or not. We cannot rest without the answer because absolutely everything of importance is riding on it.”—from Undeniable
Throughout his distinguished and unconventional career, engineer-turned-molecular-biologist Douglas Axe has been asking the questions that much of the scientific community would rather silence. Now, he presents his conclusions in this brave and pioneering book. Axe argues that the key to understanding our origin is the “design intuition”—the innate belief held by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can be accomplished only by someone who has that knowledge. For the ingenious task of inventing life, this knower can only be God.
Starting with the hallowed halls of academic science, Axe dismantles the widespread belief that Darwin’s theory of evolution is indisputably true, showing instead that a gaping hole has been at its center from the beginning. He then explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid. Lastly, he uses every-day experience to empower ordinary people to defend their design intuition, giving them the confidence and courage to explain why it must be true and the vision to imagine what biology will become when people stand up for this truth.
Armed with that confidence, readers will affirm what once seemed obvious to all of us—that living creatures, from single-celled cyanobacteria to orca whales and human beings, are brilliantly conceived, utterly beyond the reach of accident.Our intuition was right all along.

I'd call this required reading for devotees of and searchers for truth. If you want fair and balanced guide through the minefield of Darwin doubt, this is it.
This will be the first book I read multiple times so I can fully grasp some the intellectually challenging trains of thought.
Thank you for bringing this landmark book into the light.
