Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 24 September 2011
This is a well researched, clearly set out and very readable, succinctly explained work. With so much obvious evidence everywhere for evolution it's puzzling as to why so many people still resist believing in it. The plain truth is that the evidence for evolution is as good as, if not better than, that required to convict someone in a court of law. I particularly liked the chapter on vestiges, embryos and bad design. Unless we choose to believe in and worship a kack-handed god, there's no way that some superior being would have designed so much in such a haphazard fashion. For instance, the author explains that the circuitous path of the recurrent laryngeal nerve in humans is evidence for their evolution from a fishlike ancestor. If we believe that some god or other created us with such a botch-up, such a god is much less adept than, say, a car designer who makes sure to choose the shortest, surest, safest possible route for every function.

This work is one of those that causes the reader to feel happy about the way things are as he/she becomes aware of the inter-relationship of all things. All life is seen as sacred, not just human life. We are no better than any other form of life and, without all the other life forms, we could not survive. We don't have to 'be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth'. We should be humble enough to learn to live in harmony with it. This is a good read and a truly inspiring book. All truth is here. So, why look to the infinite when the truth can be in your hands?
