|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the Author
My book has to do with medical facts and how they conflict with the theory of evolution. Darwin may have made a sincere effort to explain the life around him in the nineteenth century, but he knew little, if anything, about the human cell, heredity (why a child resembles his parents), immunity, hormones, blood pressure and scores of feedback loops that tell the body when it's too hot or too cold, hungry or full, sick or well, and tired or refreshed. These examples and many, many more are discussed. They all speak very clearly for Intelligent Design, a discussion that needs to re-enter mainstream American dialogue. Although the bibliography has over 140 scientific citations and the text has been endorsed by four Ph.D's, the book was specificaly written for the non-medical reader.

Great book and highly recommend it to anyone on either side of the issue or in the middle.
Dr. Simmons tells the story with humor and clear, precise language. He is the tour guide on this ultimate, incredible journey. At each stop in the human machine, he reveals in detail the complexity of that particular part of the body and how it relates to the whole. The chapter on reproduction is absolutely mind boggling. The chapter on the development of an embryo gives the reader a play by play account of the development of a new human being. All the major systems of the body are explained in language that makes it fun to read this book. Dr. Simmons is a writer who is also a scientist. This is one of the most edifying books I have ever read.
If you home school your children or teach science in a private school, this book is an excellent resource to augment your curriculum.
This book is but one piece of evidence which is specialized to detail the human body and the vast amount of design that we observe. It is one thing to say that the human body is complex - which is something everyone would agree with - but it's another thing to observe that the working systems of the human body appear to be "pre-planned" and designed to work together from the start. However, evolution cannot explain nor predict this.
Aside from the debate itself, the book is also very informative. I learned much about the human body that still makes me drop my jaw in awe. Nothing that man has made can touch this.
