This review is from: Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (Hardcover)
For anyone with doubts over Darwin's theory of evolution, and those wanting an in-depth read on DNA coding - this is the book for you. Starting with an excellent history of the discovery of DNA, Meyers then takes the reader through various evolutionary theories that attempt and fail to account for the complexity and specificity of DNA. The book describes in detail the various theories surrounding the origins of life and their inherent failings. Finally, Meyers describes the logic behind 'Intelligent Design' and why it should be considered a scientific theory as equal to if not superior to Darwins solely materialistic evolutionary theories.
I found the tone of voice of the book to be refreshingly clear, cool and logical. The controversial subject of evolution often creates rather heated and malicious attacks from those for and against, while Meyers is wise enough to stay clear of such negative sweeping statements.
A must read for anyone interested in the complexities of the origins of life, DNA and the fundamental flaws of darwinian evolution theory.
Be warned, if you're a fan of Richard Dawkins then you probably won't like this book.
