5.0 out of 5 stars This book is worth taking seriously
Anyone who dares challenge the prevailing Darwinian theory will at best receive a condescending hearing and more likely personal ridicule. In stead of grappling with the issues evolutionists find it easier to attack the man. Ad hominmen. Everyone is labelled a "creationist" in an attempt to make them look like a loony. Then they add sneering comments to denigrate their...

1.0 out of 5 stars Contains a number of obvious flaws
This book provides an interesting introduction into complexity from evolution. However, there are a number of obvious flaws in his arguments against evolution -- in particular, he only discusses the problems with "spontanteous generation" (which differs from evolutionary theory) and he does not discuss modern evolutionary theory. His calculations assume that there is only...

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is worth taking seriously, 17 Mar 2008
Anyone who dares challenge the prevailing Darwinian theory will at best receive a condescending hearing and more likely personal ridicule. In stead of grappling with the issues evolutionists find it easier to attack the man. Ad hominmen. Everyone is labelled a "creationist" in an attempt to make them look like a loony. Then they add sneering comments to denigrate their intelligence. The establishment is primed to reject every statement without even looking at it.

There is only one mechanism in Darwinism that is said to produce change and that is mutation. There is nothing else. A little random change in the complex DNA will produce an organism with a difference. And that difference will be passed on to its decendants and produce the miracle of diversity. But increasing numbers of scientist are coming to believe that it is not enough. Nowhere near enough. You know the closest thing we have today to the complexity of DNA information is computer programmes. They are written with megabytes of information, sometimes gigabytes. And the thing we learn from computer software engineering is that a small typographical change in a computer programme doesn't just change it a little bit, improve it here or there. It wipes it out. As simple as that. Its the same with all information. You get a single digit wrong in a telephone number and the whole number is usless.

This review is from: No Free Lunch: Why Specified Complexity Cannot be Purchased without Intelligence (Hardcover)
This book provides an interesting introduction into complexity from evolution. However, there are a number of obvious flaws in his arguments against evolution -- in particular, he only discusses the problems with "spontanteous generation" (which differs from evolutionary theory) and he does not discuss modern evolutionary theory. His calculations assume that there is only one genetic option which produces complexity, when clearly there are trillions. The wide use of evolutionary algorithms to design modern microchips, aircraft and automobiles clearly violate the basic premise of this book, and shows that the book must be wrong. There are many biological examples of the evolution of complexity in modern times, such as the evolution of nylon-eating bacteria, which produce enzymes only useful for digesting synthetic materials that did not exist prior to the invention of nylon in 1935.
