I believe that when this book is read with an objective mindset, it provides a very clear and balanced and thoughtful argument. At the end of it all, I believe it does come down to a basic philosophical worldview. But I can't help but think that the scientific community and it's self righteous power today is mimicking the religious community from centuries past.

It never ceases to amaze me how people with supposedly scientific minds believe blindly in random mutation evolution. Like any scientific theory it has things it explains and things it does not explain. Like any scientific theory it must constantly be reevaluated in light of new evidence. It seems like our world has changed Darwin's evolution from a scientific theory into a religion of its own. Meyer offers a thought provoking look at the evidence. This is a great book for Christians to equip their children with as they enter Middle school "science" classes. It is a good book for anyone with an open mind on the subject. As Mark Twain is quoted as saying: "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."

Would you listen to Darwin's Doubt again? Why?
I have listened to this 6 times -
What was one of the most memorable moments of Darwin's Doubt?
The book is like the tide coming in, waves surprising, fascinating, language pregnant with implication. The author is so clear and intelligent and yet intelligible and doesn't play with techno speak.
What about Derek Shetterly’s performance did you like?
I orginally heard David Berlinski- what an experience. It is not fair to compare, but the narrator captures the book well.
This is a serious work. not really good for driving around hence not perfect Audible score. However this must be regarded as essential to any half interested biology buff. Meyer is a serious intellectual, dealing with mainstream science and philosophy. The fact that some of the arguments are complex to grasp, is my deficiency. I know I will listen again quietly on vacation to savour and understand fully. I am a graduate in science and biology and have never bought into the idea that random mutations edited by natural selection is an adequate explanation to the abundance of life forms. Meyer confirmed many of my private conclusions, and invites a viable alternative explanation. An exceptional work!
