New Book Finds Scientific Evidence for Darwinian Tale of Human Origins Severely Lacking

Science & Human Origins, the provocative new book from Discovery Institute Press, boldly addresses some of the most popular evolutionary arguments pertaining to controversial claims that humans and apes are related through common ancestry.

Science & Human Origins

In Science & Human Origins three scientists challenge the claim that undirected natural selection is capable of building a human being. The authors critically assess fossil and genetic evidence that human beings share a common ancestor with apes, and debunk recent claims that the human race could not have started from an original couple.

“The research of leading scientists in this field has empirically shown that the Darwinian mechanism is severely limited in what it can produce, especially in higher organisms like humans,” says one of the authors, Casey Luskin.

The three scientists—molecular biologist Dr. Douglas Axe, developmental biologist and geneticist Dr. Ann Gauger, and earth scientist Casey Luskin investigate some of the most pressing questions in the human origins debate.

“Dr. Gauger concludes on the basis of population genetics that the genetic evidence is quite compatible with the view that humans are descended from an original pair,” explains Luskin.

The debate over common ancestry and human origins is in full swing in the scientific community. If you want to fully understand this issue, you need to read this book.
