From Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, Senior Scientist (Biology), Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Emeritus, Cologne, Germany:
Darwin’s Doubt is by far the most up-to-date, accurate, comprehensive and in-depth review of the evidence from all relevant scientific fields that I have encountered in 40 years of studying the Cambrian explosion. An engaging investigation of the origin of animal life and a compelling case for intelligent design.
But, as you are no doubt aware from hearing it repeated ad nauseam by Darwin lobbyists — which makes it true, don’t you know that? — ID is not science. It is merely religion, or as Nick Matzke at Panda’s Thumb comments in a shambling 9000+ word “review” of Darwin’s Doubt:
The real problem is when creationists/IDists insert God into the gaps in their own personal knowledge, gaps which have already been filled by scientists.
I hope Mr. Matzke, now completing his graduate studies, will have the opportunity at some point soon to explain his view — a bit more succinctly please, since people are busy! — to the scientists who have praised Stephen Meyer’s book. See here, here, here, here, in addition to Dr. Lönnig, and more to come.
