blind?luck assembly of the first cell
mathematical improbabilities
the laws of thermodynamics

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Notice anything wrong with the cover?  Mar 24, 2007
Do you see anything wrong with the cover? Anything "funny" about that DNA molecule? If not, then this book might be for you.

But if you have even an inkling of scientific knowledge, then you'd be hard-pressed to come up with a more apt metaphor for this creationist garbage masquerading as a pseudo-intellectual examination of the most well-supported theory in all of science.
 
Unfortunately sloppy presentation ... there are better books.  Jan 23, 2007
There's not much to recommend this book. The author talks about various objections to Darwinism, but usually garbles them enough to undercut the point.

For example, on p 55 he sets up a thermodynamics experiment with two rooms and a door partition and declares that if you can prevent the temperature from equalizing when the door is opened, "... then we'll talk" (about order coming from disorder). Sounds like a bold challenge, but irrelevant. And it sounds like the author has never lived in a house with a basement.

On page 120 he explains the law of conservation of energy as ".. this means that since the event that brought the universe into existence, no new matter has been generated from any other source. It also means you can't make any new atoms and you can never lose the old ones." That's quite wrong. And, indeed, later the author correctly states the principle.

This is the way throughout the book; sloppy phrasing and poor descriptions that undercut the point the author tries to make by injecting error and imprecision into the discussion.

The book reads like an extended posting on the Internet, with the author saying things like: "... I can't think of any off-hand..." (this is a book; you are supposed to research it, readers don't care what you can or cannot think of off the top of your head). Exclamation marks abound. Paragraphs start out "Here it is in simpler terms" or "Here is the main point of all this".

He wastes time critiquing the Drake equation which is something of no importance in the scientific world, being popular in pop science only.

His discussion about SETI describes how electromagnetic signals from the Earth have only travelled 50 light-years out, leading to his conclusion that "... If we are going to detect radio signals from active aliens, they would have to be virtually living on our block." Apparently, he thinks of the signal bubble surrounding the Earth as being the same as that surrounding an ET civilization (50 years).

This is a book that really need not have been written. It's easy for Darwinists to poke holes in and is the sort of thing that makes the subject disreputable. Library check-out at best, not a keeper.
 
Can't we just talk about this?  Jan 21, 2007
Dr. Poppe's books seems to be asking the question in my review title. He presents many facets of the origins debate. He seems to be attempting to start a discussion that should be on going. One of the prime characteristics of the scientific method is the chance of a scientists being wrong. That prospect is excluded from the discussion of evolution to everyone's detriment.
 
Obscurantism at its worst  Dec 31, 2006
Poppe's presentation of evolution theory is a caricature. His thermodynamic and probabilistic "arguments" betray lack of familiarity with the subject as all these "arguments" have been long refuted by experts in thermodynamics and probability. His assertion that a growing number of scientists are abandoning evolution theory is an example of presenting a dream as reality. Tens of thousands of scientists firmly support the evolution theory (the real one rather than a parody offered by Poppe) and have been working hard to further develop and improve it. Attacks upon evolution theory like that by Poppe (who offers nothing beyond the worn out and plainly wrong notions) cannot do any harm to evolutionary biology as they are justifiably ignored by working scientists, but they do a lot of harm to unsuspecting laymen who do not have a sufficient scientific background to see the fallaciousness of anti-evolution assaults. Were it not for the latter harm, Poppe's book could be listed in the category of humor.
 
well written and informative treatment of a controversial subject  Dec 21, 2006
Although die hard believers cling to the false premise of evolution, a growiing body of work by reputable scientists reveal the truth--the blind luck so necessary for Darwinism could never do the impossible. The science just isn't there. Proponents of Darwinism have falsely accused that the acceptance of Intelligent Design will bring scientific research in any field to a jarring halt. But Intelligent Design merely states that the processes which scientists are trying to unlock are too complex and too well designed to be the result of chance.
Using facts and charts, Kenneth Poppe covers all the claims of Darwinism, including the possibility of life on other planets. You won't find many scripture references here,because this is a scientific work clearly setting out the many differences between Darwinism and Intelligent Design.
The reader will come away with a better understanding of the irreconcilable difference between the two. It's a well written, easy to understand book that I'm happy to recommend.
