Axe and Undeniable — What the Scientists Are Saying


Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed was published yesterday by HarperOne. What do scientists say about this remarkable new book by Biologic Institute protein chemist Douglas Axe, demonstrating the scientific validity of the “design intuition”?

The comments are coming in and they are excellent.

From biochemist Michael J. Behe, Lehigh University, author of Darwin’s Black Box and The Edge of Evolution:

Roses, dogs, birds. From childhood everyone directly grasps that life is designed — until they’re talked out of it by a culture saturated with materialism. This excellent book clearly and concisely explains why your first understanding was exactly right. Using the latest science on the molecules of life, molecular biologist Douglas Axe shows why you don’t have to be an expert to trust your firm knowledge of the wonderful design of life.

From Marcos Eberlin, Professor of Chemistry at Brazil’s University of Campinas, and a member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences:

Undeniable is a marvelous book, both engaging and convincing — a true masterpiece.

From J. Scott Turner, Professor of Biology, State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry:

That life is designed has long been an uncontroversial idea, but starting about a century ago, to be “real” scientists, biologists now had to think like physicists: reductionist, materialist, and mechanist. In Undeniable, Douglas Axe performs a remarkable act of intellectual jiu-jitsu, finding evidence of design in the uttermost molecular details of life and evolution, those very details that were supposed to banish antiquated notions of design from our thinking. No matter what side of the design debate you happen to be on, Douglas Axe’s thoughtful book Undeniable is worth reading, engaging, and debating.

Much more to come. Congratulations, Dr. Axe!

Undeniable offers every thoughtful reader the tools to confirm the reality of intelligent design. Get it now!
