Scientist Exposes Evolution’s Weaknesses in Politically Incorrect Book About Darwinism and Intelligent Design
August 2, 2006
SEATTLE— "This book is going to upset defenders of Darwin's theory, because it exposes just how weak the evidence for it is and how irrational their criticisms of intelligent design really are," says biologist Jonathan Wells author of the controversial new book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design. The book will be published on August 21st by Regnery as part of their popular series of “Politically Incorrect Guides.”
In clear, non-technical language, Wells explains who is fighting whom, the root of the conflict, and the evidence for and against Darwinism and Intelligent Design. He also explains what is ultimately at stake for liberals and conservatives, Christians and non-Christians, educators, policymakers, and scientists.
Discovery Institute will host a book release party for The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design on Thursday, September 7, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Rainier Square Atrium, 1333 Fifth Avenue, Seattle. Copies of Wells’ new book will be available at a discounted rate, and the author will be signing books at the event.
Wells is probably best known for his unveiling of some of the most common and most unsupported so-called proofs of Darwinian evolution in his groundbreaking 2000 book, Icons of Evolution: Why Much of What We Teach About Evolution is Wrong,. Wells has received two Ph.D.s: one in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and one in Religious Studies from Yale University. He has worked as a postdoctoral research biologist at the University of California at Berkeley and the supervisor of a medical laboratory in Fairfield, California, and he has taught biology at California State University in Hayward.
Discovery Institute will host a companion website at www.darwinismandid.com, which will be officially launched after the book's release and will include (among other things) internet links from the book's endnotes, websites the Darwinists don't want you to visit, and books the Darwinists don't want you to read.
