Thank you for a favorable review of our book "Without Excuse" (W.E.). I will expand a bit regarding your concern about our metaphysical perspective, since this touches on a fundamental problem with modern institutional science. In the introduction of W.E., we quoted Dr. David Bohm (p.19) and Sir Karl Popper (p.22), wherein they both discuss the problem of metaphysical assumptions/frameworks. In scientific research/publishing this problem comes to the fore when only one framework/metaphysical perspective/religion is allowed in the peer review process. Bohm calls this situation "dangerous" and Popper terms it "orthodoxy is the death of knowledge"/science.
Since the interpretation of all scientific results is biased by our religious beliefs, we should be individually aware and openly transparent about these beliefs. Additionally, all groups of scientists, each holding to different metaphysical assumptions, should be allowed to participate in the publishing/peer-review process. The current state of institutional science is highly orthodox, permitting only the beliefs/religion of Materialism.
Currently we are witnessing the meltdown of the United States. Since modern institutional science has been elevated to the highest status as the source of knowledge and K-PhD public science education is strictly materialistic, I believe it to be the fundamental factor in this meltdown. For these reasons we consciously chose to be transparent with the source of our metaphysical assumptions. Mass and energy alone is incapable of creating concepts relating to ethics, logic and morality. Therefore materialists must smuggle in their own metaphysical perspectives, which they believe to be congruent with their religion. Bob Compton

Without Excuse by Dr. Werner Gitt is a book that I can lean back in my cozy reading corner and enjoy at the end of the day. I used to be a Christian, but changed to agnosticism when I saw that parade of apes to a human in my biology textbook. I never dreamed that textbook authors would lie, yet lie they did in order to sell their text to thousands in the public schools. That realization took several decades of wasted living which I could have avoided had someone made me aware of a book like Without Excuse.

Dr. Gitt is the archetype scientist and that means that in the first few pages he immediately impresses you as a classical scholar tracking down the truth. The reader can test everything in his mind as Dr. Gitt leads from the commonplace to the ultimate answer. For example, everyone knows that nothing can be made without first creating a plan that has in it all of the information for the finished object. Everyone knows that even the simplest of machines, like a toothpick, cannot be made without a plan and tools, which evolution can never provide. Creating a life form is billions of times more demanding for information than a toothpick, so the reader's allegiance in the search for the truth must abandon brainless materialism and salute the only rational alternative, God. And for the pigheaded not abandoning the impossible dream, according to Scripture, they are without excuse.

Even if my job and my friends would not permit my believing the truth, I would still want to know it. That is why no matter where I am in life's journey, believer or impossible dreamer, I would want to relax in my cozy reading corner and enjoy life's tour with the engaging tour guide, Dr. Werner Gitt.

Many scientists believe that matter/energy is all there is. They try to explain everything, including origins, based on matter and the laws of nature that describe it. But there is a problem with that, and that problem deals with information. Dr. Witt first gives a rigorous definition for what information is and then demonstrates the fact that information is a nonmaterial entity. He shows how information can only be created by an intelligent source. Since the DNA/RNA protein synthesizing system in the living cell is information of the highest complexity, he contends that it could only have been made by a highly intelligent source. In short, DNA/RNA could not have originated by natural material processes. This book is a fascinating new look at the origins of life. The book is technical and requires careful reading. But I feel anyone motivated by this topic who has average reading skills can, and should, read this book. The "proof" that a creator exits just might be the information in the cells of our bodies.

In my view Dr. Gitt is an information hero and genius. He lays out scientific laws simply and easily understood. Then he applies those laws to life. The conclusion is life has a Creator and that Creator is a Genius of Genius's. This book in my view is proof of God. Critics who say that these laws are tautology (story or circular reasoning) do so from a naturalistic religious worldview outside of reason. The Bible says "The fool says in his heart there is no God." This book shows why only a fool would say that. Wonderful!! A must read for anyone who wants to know if there is a Creator God.
