Stephen C. Meyer Points Out the Inadequacies of Darwinism and Neo-Darwinism in His Book “Darwin’s Doubt”

Stephen C. Meyer is director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture and the author of Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligence Design.

Those of you who are scientifically oriented may appreciate the post All in the Pairing: John Derbyshire v. Stephen Meyer in The American Spectator, which frames a pairing of Meyer’s with a competing view in a recent edition of The American Spectator.  Meyer is forthright and even capable of being understood – at least on the main points – by someone not scientifically oriented.

In the simplest terms, Meyer reports a doubt expressed about the theory of evolution by Darwin himself – a doubt which persists 150 years after the publication of Darwin’s book, and which has only grown in importance as science has made more and more new discoveries including DNA structure in 1953.  If you think evolution is a settled issue among discerning scientists, you owe it to yourself to learn more about people like Meyer.  They are serious scientists, not preachers.
