4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 16 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On the Origin of Species: The Illustrated Edition (Hardcover)
This is a "coffee table" sized book i.e. on the large side which is a bit of a shock if you are expecting something you can carry easily. However the plus side is the fantastic colour plates and the addition of supporting material from the Beagle voyage, Darwin's autobiography and journals. A book to enjoy whilst sitting comfortably at home rather than on public transport.

Dr Matt says:
You either haven't read the book or have read it without understanding. Maybe you would care to explain how, after and if indeed you have read 'On the Origin of Species', you feel qualified to say that you "cannot imagine that evolution is enough..." and "It does not seem possible that creatures can change and develop into new species, even over millenia". Whilst the theory of evolution is exactly that, a theory; nothing discovered or researched since does anything but further strengthen the hypotheses proposed by Darwin.

I agree with Dr Matt's comments regarding your seemingly naive (mis)understanding of Darwin and more generally of science. I recommend you read "The Beak of the Finch", available via Amazon and others. This is a fascinating account of evolution and how environmental factors alter a colony of finches, not over millenia but a few years. Once you've read that you may want to re-read your comments "It does not seem possible....".

@Ramsey Tupper

I've seen this post copied and pasted into the reviews of several evolution-related products. You haven't even bothered to tailor it to the thing you are commenting against. Must try harder.

Darwin's 'theory of evolution' is not really a Theory.. more a catch all metaphysical idea. But I am splitting hairs. :)
