Denton does a good job unmasking the weaknesses in Evolutionary Theory. If you dismiss the possibility of sudden, miraculous, creation (ie Genesis),and if you believe that however life developed, it took place within some kind of natural order, then you are left with the belief that every living thing was by necessity born of another living thing (remember, no miracles allowed)and therefore the first human being must have, by logical necessity, been born of a non-human being. And so, presto, you are left with having to believe in the fact of Evolution. But Denton convincingly shows that the theory explaining Evolution is completely vacuous. The fact is, we don't know how life got started, and we don't know how it developed, and these things are as much a mystery today as they ever were in the past. As Denton points out, we are not forced to decide between Neo-Darwinian Evolutionary Theory and Biblical Creationism. A simple "I don't know" demands more respect than either one of those theories.
