In addition to disputing the methodology of Darwinism and how it conflicts with the concept of creation, Behe reveals that what makes Intelligent Design unique—and right—is that it acknowledges causation. In darwin devolves, behe advances his argument, presenting new research that offers a startling reconsideration of how Darwin’s mechanism works, weakening the theory’s validity even more.
This is important, he makes clear, because it shows the Darwinian process cannot explain the creation of life itself. A system of natural selection acting on random mutation, evolution can help make something look and act differently. Behe contends that darwinism actually works by a process of devolution—damaging cells in DNA in order to create something new at the lowest biological levels.
Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution #ad - In his controversial bestseller darwin’s black Box, biochemist Michael Behe challenged Darwin’s theory of evolution, arguing that science itself has proven that intelligent design is a better explanation for the origin of life. But evolution never creates something organically. The scientist who has been dubbed the “father of intelligent Design” and author of the groundbreaking book Darwin’s Black Box contends that recent scientific discoveries further disprove Darwinism and strengthen the case for an intelligent creator.
Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to EvolutionFree Press #ad - Time naming darwin’s black box to the national review’s list of the 100 most important nonfiction works of the twentieth century, George Gilder wrote that it “overthrows Darwin at the end of the twentieth century in the same way that quantum theory overthrew Newton at the beginning. Discussing the book in The New Yorker in May 2005, H.
It is his first major new statement on the subject and will be welcomed by the thousands who wish to continue this intense debate. Darwin’s black box helped to launch the Intelligent Design movement: the argument that nature exhibits evidence of design, beyond Darwinian randomness. For this edition, behe has written a major new Afterword tracing the state of the debate in the decade since it began.
Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution #ad - Free Press. Allen orr said of behe, “he is the most prominent of the small circle of scientists working on intelligent design, and his arguments are by far the best known. From one end of the spectrum to the other, darwin’s black box has established itself as the key text in the Intelligent Design movement—the one argument that must be addressed in order to determine whether Darwinian evolution is sufficient to explain life as we know it, or not.
. Today, with the movement stronger than ever, Michael J. Behe updates the book with an important new Afterword on the state of the debate.

Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design #ad - HarperOne. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design ID, based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way, meyer argues that charles Darwin’s theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID. Signature in the cell is a defining work in the discussion of life’s origins and the question of whether life is a product of unthinking matter or of an intelligent mind.
Stephen C. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate.
Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is DesignedHarperOne #ad - 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 only be accomplished 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.
Named a best book of the year by world magazineThroughout 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. HarperOne. Now, he presents his conclusions in this brave and pioneering book.
Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed #ad - Lastly, he uses everyday experience to empower ordinary people to defend their design intuition, giving them the confidence and courage to explain why it has to be true and the vision to imagine what biology will become when people stand up for this truth. Armed with that confidence, are brilliantly conceived, readers will affirm what once seemed obvious to all of us—that living creatures, from single-celled cyanobacteria to orca whales and human beings, utterly beyond the reach of accident.
Our intuition was right all along. Free Press. He then explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid.
The Return of the God Hypothesis: Compelling Scientific Evidence for the Existence of GodHarperOne #ad - Meyer uses three scientific points to refute popular arguments put forward by the “New Atheists” against the existence of God:The evidence from cosmology showing that the material universe had a beginning. The evidence from physics showing that, from the beginning, the universe was been “finely tuned” to allow for the possibility of life.
The evidence from biology showing that since the universe came into being, large amounts of genetic information present in DNA must have arisen to make life possible. In analyzing the evidence from these three fields, Meyer reveals how the data support not just the existence of an intelligent designer of some kind—but the existence of a theistic creator.
Meyer, one of the preeminent scientists studying the origins of life, ignited a firestorm of media and scientific controversy when a biology journal at the Smithsonian Institution published his peer-reviewed article advancing the theory of Intelligent Design. The new york times bestselling author of darwin’s Doubt and Intelligent Design scholar presents groundbreaking scientific evidence of the existence of God, based on breakthroughs in physics, cosmology, and biology.
The Return of the God Hypothesis: Compelling Scientific Evidence for the Existence of God #ad - Harper one. In 2004, stephen C. Then, signature in the cell and darwin’s doubt, in his two bestselling books, he helped unravel a mystery that Charles Darwin did not address: how did life begin? and offered further scientific proof to bolster his arguments on the history of life and our origins, concluding that life was designed.
In those previous books, meyer purposely refrained from attempting to answer questions about “who” might have designed life. Free Press.

Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent DesignHarperOne #ad - During this event, the “cambrian explosion, ” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. HarperOne.
When charles darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Harper one. Free Press. During the last half century, biologists have come to appreciate the central importance of biological information—stored in DNA and elsewhere in cells—to building animal forms.
Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design #ad - Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, Signature in the Cell, are best explained by intelligent design, Meyer argues that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes. In darwin’s Doubt, Stephen C.
. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal.
Heretic: One Scientist's Journey from Darwin to DesignDiscovery Institute #ad - Tracing his investigative path, the book draws on leisola's expertise in molecular biology to show how the evidence points more strongly than ever to the original biotechnologist--a designing intelligence whose skill and reach dwarf those of even our finest bioengineers, and leave blind evolution in the dust.
Heretic: One Scientist's Journey from Darwin to Design #ad - Free Press. He soon morphed into a full-on Darwin skeptic, even as he was on his way to becoming a leading bio-engineer. Leisola reacted angrily, and set out to defend evolution, but found his efforts raised more questions than they answered. HarperOne. Harper one. Heretic is the story of leisola's adventures making waves--and many friends and enemies--at major research labs and universities across Europe.
It all started when a student loaned the Finnish scientist a book criticizing evolutionary theory. Just ask biotechnologist Matti Leisola. What happens when an up-and-coming European bioscientist flips from Darwin disciple to Darwin defector? Sparks fly.
The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of DarwinismFree Press #ad - Behe's first book, was published in 1996, Darwin's Black Box, it launched the intelligent design movement. The clear conclusion: The universe was designed for life. Now, in his long-awaited follow-up, behe presents far more than a challenge to Darwinism: He presents the evidence of the genetics revolution -- the first direct evidence of nature's mutational pathways -- to radically redefine the debate about Darwinism.
Although it will be controversial and stunning, this finding actually fits a general pattern discovered by other branches of science in recent decades: The universe as a whole was fine-tuned for life. From physics to cosmology to chemistry to biology, life on earth stands revealed as depending upon an endless series of unlikely events.
When Michael J. Critics howled, yet hundreds of thousands of readers -- and a growing number of scientists -- were intrigued by Behe's claim that Darwinism could not explain the complex machinery of the cell. Free Press. The "edge" of evolution, a line that defines the border between random and nonrandom mutation, lies very far from where Darwin pointed.
The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism #ad - Harper one. But the crucial question remains: how did it happen? Darwin's proposed mechanism -- random mutation and natural selection -- has been accepted largely as a matter of faith and deduction or, at best, circumstantial evidence. The genomes of many organisms have been sequenced, and the machinery of the cell has been analyzed in great detail.
Zombie Science: More Icons of EvolutionDiscovery Institute #ad - Empirical science is devolving into zombie science, shuffling along unfazed by opposing evidence. But now, wells argues, it’s being corrupted. Is there a solution? Wells is sure of it, and points the way. Like a b horror movie, they just keep coming! Zombies are make believe, but zombie science is real—and it threatens not just science, but our whole culture.
Discredited icons of evolution rise from the dead while more icons—equally bogus—join their ranks. Harper one. Free Press. In 2000, biologist jonathan wells took the science world by storm with Icons of Evolution, a book showing how biology textbooks routinely promote Darwinism using bogus evidence—icons of evolution like Ernst Haeckel’s faked embryo drawings and peppered moths glued to tree trunks.
Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution #ad - Now, in zombie science, wells asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Science has enriched our lives and led to countless discoveries. HarperOne. Critics of the book complained that Wells had merely gathered up a handful of innocent textbook errors and blown them out of proportion.
