9780061472794: Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design

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. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate. For those who may be sympathetic to ID, on the fence, or merely curious, this book is an engaging, eye-opening, and often eye-popping read” — American Spectator

Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling book from Dr. Stephen C. 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. If you enjoyed Francis Collins’s The Language of God, you’ll find much to ponder—about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design—in Signature in the Cell.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Signatures in the Cell is the first major statement by a scientist to argue that intelligent design is as the best explanation for the origin of life on earth. In this thoughtful and challenging book, scientist Stephen Meyer summarises and critiques current evolutionary theories and goes on to show that the evidence itself makes a strong case for intelligent design. This book shows that the argument for intelligent design from DNA is not based on ignorance or a desire to give up on science, but instead upon just the opposite: our growing scientific knowledge of the inner workings of the cell and our knowledge of the cause-and-effect structure of the world. For this reason the argument for design can be formulated as a rigorous scientific argument. In fact, the argument for intelligent design from DNA is based on the same method of scientific reasoning that Darwin himself used. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780061472794
