Intelligent Design (ID), the idea that a sentient cause, rather than an undirected process, best explains key features of life and the universe, continues to ignite controversy around the world. In Signature in the Cell, nationally recognized scientist Stephen Meyer shows that the argument for ID is not based on ignorance or "giving up on science," but instead on our growing scientific knowledge of the information stored in cells. Meyer takes readers on an odyssey of discovery as he investigates current evolutionary theories and the evidence that ultimately led him to back ID, arguing that digital code embedded in DNA helps to unravel the mystery of how life began. Signature in the Cell is a major contribution to the ongoing debate over the validity of Intelligent Design. Dr. Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute in Seattle. In 2004, Meyer ignited a firestorm of media and scientific controversy when a biology journal at the Smithsonian Institution published his peer-reviewed scientific article advancing Intelligent Design. Meyer has been featured on national television and radio programs, and has been featured in the New York Times. "Meyer has provided no less than a blueprint for 21st century biological science ... After this book, readers will wonder whether anything more than sentimentality lies behind the continued association of Darwin's name with modern biology." -- Dr. Steve Fuller, professor of sociology of science, University of Warwick, and author of Dissent from Descent--Dr. Philip S. Skell, member, National Academy of Sciences, and Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus at Pennsylvania State UniversityBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Stephen C.
