Description

Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling audiobook from Dr. Stephen C. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design (ID) based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way Meyer argues that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID.

If you enjoyed Francis Collins' The Language of God, you'll find much to ponder - about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design - in Signature in the Cell.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Magnificent explanation of an alternative theory.

This book deserves to be understood as it contains the bases for a new future in humanity's history.

Intelligent Design vs Chance

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in the origin of life. Meyer makes an extremely good case for the Intelligent Design hypothesis. This is not just all hype & no meat, he goes into several leading theories and makes a good argument for why Intelligent Design is the best based on current knowledge. Even if you disagree, this book would at least give you an understanding of why some scientists believe in it and what critical points would have to be explained to over come their conclusions. Great read in my opinion.

Who knew 'science' had such zealous orthodoxy?

Eye-opening! Eureka maybe? Maybe in distinction to the 'multiverse-of-the-gaps' this intelligence/design paradigm could be the next epoch creating solutions in science.

buries darwinian evolution

you will shake your head in disbelief at how so many people have been duped by the absurdity of Darwinian evolution. This book elucidates just about every aspect of intelligent design and is a compelling obvious correction of how intelligence was necessary to create the information in life and DNA.

excellent Treatise on intelligent design

Steven Meyers does an excellent job explaining the history of science, and how no secular materialistic description of the beginning of Life can explain the information in DNA. this is an excellent book for anybody who wants to try to understand the true debate and get past all of the red herrings and straw man arguments propped up by Dawkins and all the other unthinking so called "science" parrots. highly recommend

Darwinism in light of the human genome project

Prior to the discovery of germ theory in the late 19th century, there could be no understanding of how diseases were caused or cured.

Prior to the discovery of DNA and its encoded information, there could be no understanding of how the origin of life occurred. Were Darwin alive today, I believe he would not have postulated "chance alone" as a mechanism for life due to the complexity of DNA.

I was in search of a modern review of Darwinism in light of the recent discoveries in genomics and Steven Meyer provided the scientific and philosophical approach I was looking for. His work was very up-to-date and relevant to answering the question of Intelligent Design's role in the formation of life.

Objective, and thought provoking!

Dr. Meyer does an excellent job detailing the historic and modern challenges to neo-darwinian theory. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in micro-biology, mathematics, evolution, or intelligent design. My only critique is repetition, particularly in certain chapters where it becomes a little distracting. The narrator did an excellent job.

A good read for anyone with a scientific bent

Stephen Meyer does an excellent job presenting his case for why Intelligent Design Theory, in his opinion, presents the best case for the design apparently present in living things. He does a fair job of presenting both sides of the argument (methodological naturalism or neo-darwinian evolution VS ID) and why he feels ID is the best theory based upon evidence available. He addresses issues which are brought against ID being a scientific theory and refutes them well.

The book is a scientific book written for folks without a scientific bent (I think it tends to be more scientific/technical than the average reader) and is also a long presentation.

No matter which side of the discussion/debate you fall on, this is enlightening and well worth the read.

A must read!

This book was an excellent listen. If you listen with an open mind, it will certainly help you to see the weakness of the Theory of Evolution. Mathematically it simply does not add up. I read and listen broadly and it helps to reason with others in this divisive issue. It would benefit us all if we could reason and discuss instead of getting emotional and arguing. In all your other reading and listening on this issue, listen to this!

A powerful defense of intelligent design.

If I can condense Stephen Meyer's thesis into a single sentence, it would be this: intelligence is the only known source of specified, organized information in the universe, and as such intelligent design must be considered not only a theory but the leading theory of the origins of specified, organized information in DNA and human cells. Meyer delivers this thesis is a rational, even-handed manner that begins with the then-legitimate reasons Darwin believed what he believed, and continuing through Crick, Watson and Wilson to the present age. The underlying subject matter, including the extreme and unimaginable complexity insider every living cell, is presented in a manner that both boggles the mind yet is easily digested. DNA, mRNA, ribosomes, amino acids and proteins are examined in detail, and reveal self-replicating, homeostatic, hidden factories of exquisite complexity inside every living cell. Imagine a factory millions of times more complex than anything created by man, and condensed into a microscopic spot. And these factories not only keep you alive, they are you.

The Signature in the Cell is a must listen for every person of every philosophy or paradigm. Creationists, material naturalists and everyone in between will be astounded by the complexity of the human genome and the objective proof that it could not have created itself from mere randomness. Everyone needs this book.

Great book!

Very informative and scientific. Not theology and anyone who claims it is does not understand science (or changes the definition of science in order to disregard it as such).
