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.

The Thousand Year Book

I believe this book is the most important written in the last thousand years. Beautifully read by Derek Shetterly. Dr. Meyer makes a remarkable, tremendous, exciting and excruciatingly thorough argument, scientifically and mathematically, to usurp Darwin from the crown of evolutionary understanding and re-introduce our Fine Designer. The logic of Dr. Meyer’s argument is driven by our present day exceptional understanding of molecular biology, of what life truly is at the nano-level and what it takes to have something “alive”. We can truly appreciate life only when we read or hear details like those provided in “Signature in the Cell”. While Dr. Meyer is completely prepared to run his critics over with a proverbial “Mack truck”, he goes through pains, at an almost fantastical level of thoroughness, to cover and examine his critics arguments in extraordinary detail. Indeed, this book is as much the examination and dissection of opposing positions to ID as it is his elaborate, exceptional argument. It is wonderfully written. If you enjoy an exciting detective novel, a mystery novel, a history lesson, with the marvel of life‘s complexity all enveloped within and a conclusion delivering your own spiritual renewal, then please, download, and buckle up. It’s no overstatement to make: This book will one day prove to have brought a new, lasting, long sought after light in an up-til-now darkened tunnel, and a fresh hope for the revival of humanity’s relationship with The Divine.

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.

Surprisingly Rigorous

When a friend recommended this I expected a hokey, half-religious argument that wouldn't be sourced much deeper than the book of Genesis. Instead, it was rigorous, detailed, logical and well sourced. The chapters discussing information theory and probabilistic resources alone had more fresh ideas than most books I've read. The arguments are compelling enough that anyone seriously interested in the origin of life will have to grapple with them. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an open mind and an interest in the philosophy and history of science.

ESSENTIAL in the truest sense

I was only somewhat aware of Stephen Meyer before reading this. I wanted to find the most fundamental or important ID book, and finally become fully aware of the ideas. I was pointed in the direction of this book several times, and I so I gave it a listen.

It did not disappoint at all. I think every human being in our time should know this essential knowledge about the code that is in our blood. It is thorough and definitive of what ID means. ID has so many applications, but this has been one of the most exciting and meaningful discoveries, and I feel like a more complete thinker and person for having read it.

phenomenal!

This material must be taken in by every person interested in origin science and every scientist researching the cure of any disease. It is the key to freeing the mind from 150 year old false assumptions about origins that have retarded the human race's ability to progress.

Thorough

Interesting how evolution is deconstructed in the most forthright, honest manner. This is no religious argument, but a detailed expose of the current state of science, including historical and philosophical developments.

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.
