Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Amazing book packed full of good science."

    Great book. Not full of religion as some reviews claim.
    it is full of science and critical thinking.
    in some places it gets a bit heavy on the biology/biochemistry, which I am not sure people will get if they don't have a scientific background.
    As someone with a scientific background I found the book very well thought out and convincing.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Absolute logical evidence for design"

    although a "heavy read" the author does a good job of making a plain case for intelligent design and exposes the atheistic and evolutionist bent against a purely logical theory.

    "Best way to catch up on the ID/evolution debate"

    People should have to read this book before debating origins. So much information packed in!

    "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

    Story
    "Challenging and thorogh"

    This is an exhaustive historical dissertation on comparative hypotheses. I do believe that the case is made, from beginning to end,
    that there should be room to consider design as an option in the origins of life in the universe.
    If one were to utilize probabilities alone in looking at rational conclusions, I believe that it is only a philosophical roadblock that would keep someone from determining that design should be able to have a seat at the table along with other scientific hypotheses around the origins of life itself. The author does a very thorough job at building a case and helping to formulate reasonable thoughts around the subject.
