Item Description...
The first, major scientific argument for Intelligent Design by a leading spokesperson within the scientific community.

Publishers Description
Meyer tells the story of the successive attempts to solve this mystery of DNA and argues that fundamental objections now exist to the adequacy of all purely naturalistic or materialistic theories. The book then proposes a radical alternative based upon developments in molecular biology and the information sciences: it proposes the design hypothesis as the best explanation for the origin of the information necessary to produce the first life. SIGNATURE IN THE CELL will not merely provide a critique of evolutionary theories. It also shows that, based on our uniform and repeated experience-the basis of all scientific reasoning about the past-there is a strong positive case for intelligent design. From our experience we know that intelligence alone produces large amounts of information. Thus, the book shows that the argument for intelligent design from DNA is not based on ignorance or a desire to 'give up on science,' but instead upon just the opposite: our growing scientific knowledge of the inner workings of the cell and our experience-based knowledge of the cause-and-effect structure of the world. For just this reason the argument for design can be formulated as a rigorous and positive scientific argument-specifically one called 'an inference to the best explanation.' The book shows, ironically, that the argument for intelligent design from DNA is based on the same method of scientific reasoning that Darwin himself used.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book  Feb 3, 2010
A leading scholar shares evidence (much of which has been known for many years--but not widely publicized). The book deserves widespread serious consideration.
Great book!!  Feb 1, 2010
This book uses all the same information you can find in any general biology book and is scientificially accurate. As stated on pg. 21 of the text, "Metaphors reign where mystery resides." Classic quote to the many metaphors that evolutionists use when "trying" to explain where life comes from.
Kryptonite for Darwinists  Jan 30, 2010

The practitioners of materialistic science have long portrayed their theories of the origin of life as invincible. Darwin of course, is their "Superman". No matter how many unanswered questions these theories leave, we are assured that the answer is out there, and the answer is naturalistic.

Stephen Meyer has now written the equivalent of "kryptonite for Darwinists". The mystery of the origin of life is identical to the mystery of the origin of biological information. Meyer documents the failure of Darwin's defenders to account for this feature of all living things. More importantly, he shows that only one cause we know of can produce large amounts of specified functional information; conscious intelligence.

The worst thing that could happen to the Evolutionary establishment is for the public to read this book. This is a game changer. Evolutionists need to explain the DNA enigma. If not, then maybe it's time to allow a real contender into the public arena.
Comprehensive And Intellectually Honest  Jan 28, 2010
I was truly impressed by the fair and open minded treatment of the various theories surrounding the origin of life. I am an engineer and a technologist with a masters in electrical engineering and with a fair amount of understanding in nuclear engineering, software engineering and computer architecture. Based on the explanations provided in this book around the structure of DNA and RNA as well as the processes of coding transcription, gene expression and protein manufacture, one cannot help but notice an exquisitely designed nano-CAD/CAM system. Wow!

Stephen, I'm not a big fan of chemistry (as I had my interest in the subject squashed by an angry nuclear chemist teaching freshman chemistry), however, you made this a very interesting read. Thank you! I learned a lot from you.

I guess it takes so-called scientists who have blindly embraced materialistic philosophy to look at a sophisticated design and say it is not designed. They have wasted 50+ years in trying to explain away intelligent agency.

Perhaps it is high time to turn this work over to the engineers, who recognize a great design when they see it, so we can actually get some work done :^)

I also took a look through many of the comments. I noticed that most of the 1-star ratings were from people who didn't read the book or didn't want to cloud their thinking with facts. How pathetic.

I bought the Kindle version of this book. The table of contents and footnotes did not work, otherwise I would have given the book 5 stars. I guess I'll have to invest in the printed version as well.
Required Reading for an honest debate  Jan 27, 2010
This book should be required reading for anyone who believes they understand neo-darwinian evolution and is open to see another point of view. The author has provided a great resource for understanding the challenges that exist in the case for natural selection and random chance as the cause of the information rich systems of all living cells. And the the author has done a clear and very comprehensive study, explanation and case for intelligent design based on information-rich DNA. It is a long read and the reader should expect to take some time to pause and contemplate many of the complex concepts presented and chase down some of the many, many references.

This would be an excellent book for a book club to read and debate.
