David Klinghoffer writes at Evolution News and Views:
Stephen Meyer's new book, Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, will debut this coming Sunday in the #7 place on the New York Times hardback nonfiction list. . . .
The Times even has a remarkably accurate summary of what's in the book -- something to which we're not entirely accustomed when dealing with the media:
DARWIN'S DOUBT, by Stephen C. Meyer. (HarperOne.) The theory of intelligent design best explains the appearance of animals in the fossil record without apparent ancestors.
That is referring to the geologically sudden eruption of complex animal life in the Cambrian explosion, about 530 million years ago, a thread that Meyer pulls in the first third of the book and that results in the conclusive unraveling of Darwinian theory in the final two-thirds.
Stephen C. Meyer holds a Cambridge University Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of science and is director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute.
Nancy Pearcey, editor at large of The Pearcey Report and director of the Francis Schaeffer Center for Worldview and Culture at Houston Baptist University, is also a fellow at the Discovery Institute.
Congratulations to Stephen Meyer!
