Darwin's doubt : the explosive origin of animal life and the case for intelligent design by Stephen C Meyer ( Book )
11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Charles Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. In what is known today as the "Cambrian explosion," 530 million years ago many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In Darwin's Doubt Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life -- a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but also because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, Signature in the Cell, Meyer argues that the theory of intelligent design -- which holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection -- is ultimately the best explanation for the origin of the Cambrian animals. - Back cover
Darwinism, design, and public education ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although its implications are not yet fully evident, the advent of a modern scientific theory of intelligent design (ID), and a scholarly research community advancing this theory (the ID movement) has re-energized and is now redefining the character of this controversy. Darwinism, Design, and Public Education examines ID as a science, a philosophy, and a movement for educational reform. In this book, leading design theorists present their scientific case for intelligent design, their criticisms of contemporary Darwinism and their arguments for a pluralistic controversy-based model of science education. They contend that if science education is to be other than state sponsored propaganda it must expose students to the scientific controversies that now exist about neo-Darwinism and other theories of biological origins."--Jacket
