A Difficult but Brilliant Book
Dembski shows how the theory of evolution is contradicted by modern information theory (complex, ordered information is produced by intelligence rather than by chance), mathematics (events less likely than the universal probability bound do not occur¿the random coalescence of just one amino acid would be such an event), and physics (according to the second law of thermodynamics, systems increase in entropy [disorder] over time rather than increasing in order, as is posited by the theory of evolution).Was this review helpful?

This book is great if you need to justify your belief in the almighty. If you buy this book and you believe it, great. If you are a skeptic, then this book is not for you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A true lightening rod
Dembski waxes eloquently on the distictions between Darwinism, Scientific Creationism and Intelligent Design. Arguments are compelling and thoroughly thought-out. Takes quite a bit of time to follow some of the logical constructs, but it is worth the effort. It is not a stretch to think that intelligence can be identified. If not, the whole concept behind Mensa is a joke. How do they know that their members are truly smart, and haven't accidentally scored high on the so-called tests? It could be randomness that just happened to coalesce in their favor. Only those bent on intellectual suicide, for their own purposes, could patently dismiss Dembski's arguments. But then again, their whole line of reasoning could be random noise, who knows?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
