Description

Named A Best Book of the Year by World Magazine

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 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. He then explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid. 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, 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.

"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

Review quote

"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
