Reviews - What do customers think about Science and Evidence for Design in the Universe (The Proceedings of the Wethersfield Institute Vol. 9)?

Several good essays  May 23, 2008
There are getting to be a pretty good pile of well written books out there about ID. Even if you arrive at different conclusions it is difficult to argue that the authors are very bright (as are their opponents), and that they make some very cogent points. Since there are a lot of these books out there it is probably helpful to have a guide to determine their relative merits. While this won't be a comprehensive guide by any stretch, I think I've read enough of the key ID books of late to at least give you something to compare with.

To begin with, this book is a compilation of several essays written by what most would say represent some of the key voices in ID. If you want a synopsis of Behe's Black Box (in my opinion the most significant ID book) this is a good place to get it. You can get a good explanation of his notion of irreducible complexity with the added benefit of him having time to respond to some of the arguments from the Darwin faction.
The other essays are worth the read as well, and one you may find unusual concerns the potential for theology and science to learn from each other. This is a grossly oversimplified synopsis, by the way, but he takes a potentially uncomfortable and awkward theory and manages to illuminate with some potential examples that don't seem contrived at all.

In summation, five stars may be a bit high, but with all the one star reviews from non-readers I feel justified in adding an extra half star here. I'd probably read some of Meyer's and Dembski's and Behe's other books (especially Black Box), but if you want sort of a survey that is still detailed, this isn't a bad place to go.
intelligent design  Jan 12, 2008
This book goes to the foudation of life. Puts the facts & the misconceptions on the table. I give irrefutable Evidence of Intelligent Design. A must for those thirsting for Truth & knowledge. A most Excellent book.
As "scientific" as astrology  Dec 27, 2007
Co-editor and author Michael Behe claims that Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, by his own definition of "scientific".

However, under oath on the witness stand in Kitzmiller v. Dover (2005), Behe admitted that by his definition, ASTROLOGY is also a "scientific theory".

So why pay for this book, when you could turn to your newspaper's horoscopes and get something just as "scientific" at a much lower price?

No-one can serve two masters, and the contributors to this tome chose the side of religion against the side of science.
Finally, a scholarly yet accesible counterpoint  Nov 10, 2006
Taken together, Science and Evidence for Design in the Universe and Darwin's Black Box make up the best challenge to currently accepted theories I've read. It is about time we stop protecting theories, and start exploring the vast new evidence being uncovered by the expanding frontiers of science. That is what these books do. They point out the new discoveries in several areas of science, which challenge the long-held Darwinian explanation for the beginnings of life. Shouldn't we be willing to see where the evidence takes us? Frankly, Christian faith has nothing to do with evolution vs. creation - as I recall the first few verses of Genesis talk about the earth existing as "chaos" before creation, how do we know what that means? Evidently, challenging the theories of Darwin is rather threatening to many of the very scientists who should be eager to see where this new evidence leads us.
Get the book, read it - it is not an "easy" read, but it IS accesible to anyone who did well in general education science - and then read it again.
Behe whipped by 'the flagellum'  Oct 27, 2006
In Behe's chapter he states that the bacterial flagellum contains 40 protein parts and that this structure is irreducibly complex. However, a recent paper in Nature Reviews Microbiology by Pallen and Matzke show that Behe made a sweeping generalization by saying "the flagellum" (there are literally thousands of flagellar structures; not one)and many of the flagellar structures require far less than 40 proteins!!!! So much for irreducible complexity. The DI apparently did not do their research. An accesible critique of this is at the Panda's Thumb by Nick Matzke, or the ID to the future podcast comments.
