Evolution: Where Religion and Science Meet for a Showdown in “Evolution: What Dawkins Did Not Tell You” by Olufemi E. Dokun-Babalola.
Did God create life or did it come about by chance re-arrangement of molecules? As improbable as the latter view is, that is the foundation for the theory of evolution. A lot of exhaustive research has gone into this book, as has the thinking of several leading scientists. What is clear to the author, is that macroevolution, just like green men on Mars, is desperate wishful thinking.
The notion that those who are Christians are some kind of flat?earthers who are impervious to reason and evidence-based science is utterly false. For atheism to succeed as an ideology, humanists must find an alternative explanation to creation and intelligent design.
The cover of this book shows the micro-molecular interior of a cell with particular emphasis on Kinesin molecules carrying a vesicle cargo along a microtubule. This is the hyper-precise “internal postal system” illustrating that the cell, tiny as it is, is an extremely complex entity. This complexity cannot have arisen from blind, random, chance re-arrangement of molecules in the so-called primordial sea, as postulated More >
