Publisher's Summary

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 be accomplished only 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.

Seductively Challenge what are consider facts

Awesome insight by an experienced and intelligent biologist with vast of experience in the field. Also with plenty of experimented proofs to support his insights.

Douglas Axe, P.h.D ingeniously poke some buttons that should've been poked many years ago and should been take in serious consideration about "facts" that are being forced in the classroom without a solid foundation.

The beginning of the book seems to me too philosophical but about chapter 3 and 4 all becomes clear, when Douglas start to present undeniable proof to support the statements, previously introduced.

In the last too chapters, Douglas beautifully painted with words how incredible would be if the scientific community would allow concerns, experimentations and observations to be, once more, the leading force that drives Science.

This book is also read very clearly, plus the format of language makes it easy to understand even for those not familiar with genetics, scientific insights or biology technical language. Extremely clear and refreshing.
