5.0 out of 5 stars Evolution dissected
Absolutely Brilliant book. Shows how it would be impossible for Humans to have evolved slowly as most things in us need to be provided whole in order to work properly if at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Desperate
'Dr. Geoffrey Simmonds has studied the human body and evolutionary theory for more than 40 years'. If you ask me to break this down I would say that he's studied the human body (and lots and lots of the bible) for 39.99999 years and has looked up how to spell 'evolutionary theory'. His laughable knowledge of the subject is demonstrated with complete ignorance of topology...

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book, 15 Jan 2008

This review is from: What Darwin Didn't Know: A Doctor Dissects the Theory of Evolution (Paperback)
What Darwin didnt know lies at the tips of your fingers... And everywhere else in your anatomy. The founder of evolutionary theory didnt know that the function of every cell and every system in your body follows an intricate DNA blueprint. In fact, he didnt know much about the human body at all.

Drawing on the most recent research as well as years of clinical work, Geoffrey Simmons tells the real story about your amazing complexity:
-The brain resembles a continent swept by electrical hurricanes and chemical tidal waves that somehow make sense of reality
-A fertilized egg makes a journey as complex as the path of a golf ball that rolls 30 miles and lands precisely in the 18th hole of a course its never seen
-The immune system contains multiple defenses that confine trillions of microorganisms to your skin, like passengers innocently sunning themselves on the deck of a cruise ship
-And much more!
What Darwin Didnt Know pictures the wonders of the human body in their true contexta marvelous system fashioned by an infinitely wise Designer.

This review is from: What Darwin Didn't Know: A Doctor Dissects the Theory of Evolution (Paperback)
'Dr. Geoffrey Simmonds has studied the human body and evolutionary theory for more than 40 years'. If you ask me to break this down I would say that he's studied the human body (and lots and lots of the bible) for 39.99999 years and has looked up how to spell 'evolutionary theory'. His laughable knowledge of the subject is demonstrated with complete ignorance of topology (the environments influence on evolution) as he questions why animals don't evolve at the same speed, his ignorance of the many whale transitional fossils that exist which he claims do not and his complete lack of research into the other side of 'the argument' (a quick search on google into the 'evolution of the eye' yielded very contasting opinions on the subject and its feasability).

The forward by William Dembski has the audacity to call the theory of evolution a magic trick and yet the book constantly tries to convince us of a supernatural explaination for the diversity of life. Simmonds uses the argument that we knew less 200 years ago and then promotes an idea first suggested over 2000 years ago. Indeed many of his arguments inadvertantly support evolution 'skin is thickest where we need most protection'. The book also contains numerous ridiculous analogies e.g. '[evolution of man] is like a prehistoric blind man building a bridge from Key West plank by plank, aiming for Portugal, and despite lightning strikes and hurricanes and his inability to see arriving there 10 trillion planks later'!?

Then it's worth mentioning the numerous weak arguments put forward for reasons why humans have different abilities to that of other animal/apes. My personal favourite being humans sweat while others don't because 'it's a defence mechanism for when humans get attacked they become slippery'. How about it's just a more efficient way of cooling than panting and if a creature that had fur were to sweat then the fur would get wet and it would not be very effective? Also, 'Vomit apparently makes other people vomit because of an alerting process warning others nearby that they too may have eaten something dangerous'. How about the stomach acids necessary to break food down just smell really toxic? Honestly, this book was written by a doctor!? Many of the 'whole package phenomenon' claims simply do not have to happened in unison. To Simmonds it 'seems logical that speech and hearing would have evolved or been designed together' for some reason. I would have thought hearing would be far more useful to a primitive animal.

I would like to say that there are some interesting biological facts in this book, but because Simmonds knowledge of evolution is so weak and his push to convince of intelligent design is so desperately biased it hard not to feel he has discredited himself by the time he begins to tell you about his knowledge of his own profession.

I love reading about the amazing Human Body. This Book is a must read for anyone who is medical minded but skeptical about Intelligent Creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should you believe in evolution?, 15 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Darwin Didn't Know: A Doctor Dissects the Theory of Evolution (Paperback)
I constantly refer to this book, particularly when discussing evolution. It makes one think about how all can be manipulated into believing 'smart' scientific views. I recommend it to anyone wishing to get to the bottom of the matter.
