When a Light Bulb Went On for Doug Axe

Dr. Axe’s new book, Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed, will turn on a light bulb for many readers. When, though, was his own “Aha!” moment?

He describes it above. It came early on in his Caltech graduate studies:

I suddenly saw this connection between what I had studied as an engineer and biology — specifically, how things are controlled at the molecular level in gene expression. I saw this elegant regulatory mechanism described in a lecture and I thought “Wow! This is engineering at a molecular scale. That’s really when a light bulb went off for me.”

Undeniable is out this week. Early responses are very encouraging. This is just in from World Magazine editor Marvin Olasky:

This is the first in a series of “Conversations with Douglas Axe.” Stay tuned here for more.
