Product description

Michael J. Behe launched the intelligent design movement with his first book, "Darwin's Black Box," by demonstrating that Darwinism could not account for the complexity of biochemistry. Now he takes a giant leap forward. In "The Edge of Evolution," Behe uses astounding new findings from the genetics revolution to show that Darwinism is nowhere near as powerful as most people believe. Genetic analysis of malaria, E. coli, and the HIV virus over tens of thousands of generations, not to mention analysis of the entire history of the genetic struggle between them and "us" (humans), make it possible for the first time to determine the precise rates, and likelihood, of random mutations of varying kinds. We now know, as never before, what Darwinism can and cannot accomplish. The answers turn conventional science on its head and are certain to be hotly debated by millions. After "The Edge of Evolution," life in the universe will never look the same.
