Scott Turner.jpgToday’s the day. Stephen Meyer’s new book, Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, is out and we’ll be following the media coverage and keeping you abreast of developments.

Today Dr. Meyer is on the Dennis Miller Show at 9:15 AM Pacific Time, Dennis Prager at 11 AM Pacific, Janet Parshall at 2 PM, among other things.

Meanwhile, enjoy this further endorsement from the world of science. Dr. Scott Turner teaches biology at the State University of New York. He’s the author of The Tinkerer’s Accomplice: How Design Emerges from Life Itself (Harvard University Press):

Darwin’s Doubt is an intriguing exploration of one of the most remarkable periods in the evolutionary history of life — the rapid efflorescence of complex body plans written in the fossils of the Burgess Shale. In laying out his case for intelligent design (ID) based on this evidence, Meyer has emerged from the “ID wars” of the past decade as perhaps the most thoughtful and engaging advocate of this controversial perspective. No matter what convictions or beliefs one holds about evolution, Darwinism or intelligent design, Darwin’s Doubt is a book that should be read, engaged and discussed.

More dust-jacket blurbs, and more media, to come.
