An important contibution on the Science/Religion debate,
This review is from: God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? (Paperback)
A well-researched and thought-out argument for Intelligent Design that makes its case in a rare logical, scientific methodical and scholarly fashion.
Arguments range from challenging the philosophical a priori assumptions made by evolutionary naturalism, to questioning the evolutionary potential of natural selection, to rebutting the mathematical logic of a materialistic, random/blind origin of life theory, and finally to showing how irreconcilable the Darwinistic model is to the growing field of information theory in terms of the origin and organisation of the genetic code.
Meanwhile, the book takes time to address many of the misconceptions that the scientific community share concerning the Intelligent Design theory. In this, the author elegantly addresses the "God of the gaps" notion, the decry of theism (and in particular, biblical theism) as incompatible with Science, and the assumption that an atheistic naturalism can be the only honestly rational outcome of scientific discovery.
John Lennox has provided the Origins debate with a substantial defense of Biblical Theism that definitely merits to be brought to the table.
