Intelligent Design defended
What made the experience of listening to Design Revolution the most enjoyable?
It was orderly and progressed in a way that made the listening easy. However, the material covered is fairly complex and I will have to read the book to better understand some of the points made.
What other book might you compare Design Revolution to and why?
Stephen Meyer's Signature in the Cell covers a different aspect of the intelligent design movement, asking where the information in DNA came from. Dembski considers the problems of detecting design, especially in biological systems. He lets the reader know that saying these complex biological systems are the result of intelligent design and couldn't be developed by random variation and natural selection. Meyer covers many bases, including the calculating the probability of the random assembly of a functional protein in a prebiotic soup. Both Meyer and Dembski explain the limitations of the universe's probabilistic resources.
What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator made a difficult subject easier to follow.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No way to listen in one sitting. This is a very heady subject with the introduction of many technical philosophical and mathematical terms. It's better to consider listening to the book as a way to prepare to read the book
Any additional comments?
Anyone who wants to understand the science of intelligent design in greater depth would benefit from this book.
