This review is from: Who Made God? Searching For a Theory of Everything (Hardcover)
Professor Andrews does an admirable job in demonstrating that life could not have come about through sheer chance. I'm not a scientist, but, assuming that all his facts are correct, then he puts forward a very good case for there being a Creator. For the majority of his book his reasoning is sound and he goes to great lengths to rebuff the claims made by atheists. However, in the closing chapters of the book where he attempts to identify the Creator as the Christian God, his arguments become less than water-tight and he ducks many of the questions that an atheist or agnostic would have asked. To attribute mutations to the Fall of Man requires a huge amount of scientific evidence to back that claim up. If Professor Andrews wants to treat Adam and Eve as actual historic individuals, he needs to do provide a theory of how and when they could ever have existed. This book may provide comfort to theists and provides a lot for the atheist to ponder. However, it won't convert anyone to Christianity.

Mr. P. Moylan says:
Perhaps if you read Dawkins you would understand that he stresses that life didn't come about by sheer chance. It came about by a very complex set of algorithms that are called natural selection by Darwin. Dawkins is at pains to describe how life evolved in many of his books including The Ancestors Tale and The Greatest Show On Earth and my favourite THe Blind Watchmaker. Read them and at least learn what neo-darwinists think happened.
