A level headed presentation of micro biology
on 5 February 2009
I find it refreshing that Behe avoids the extreme dogmatism at both ends of the evolution/creation debate. He is a scientist, and approaches the topic in a scientific manner, by working within what is known and can observed to be fact.
For the open minded, this book is definitely worth reading. For the lay person (like myself), it will greatly enhance one's understanding and appreciation of how living organisms function. By means of well chosen illustrations and argument, biological systems (glibly glossed over by some) are shown to present the evolutionary theory with all sorts of problems.
Behe also takes the opportunity to answer crticisms levelled at his previous publication (Darwin's Black Box).
Behe is non-comital on the identity of a Creator, which no doubt is viewed as a weakness by evolutionists and creationists alike. But if you wish to be informed, not preached at, then read this book.
