THE BLIND WATCHMAKER: Why The Evidence Of Evolution Reveals A Universe Without Design

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Richard Dawkins Blind Watchmaker
clearly shows the use of a very

My logic is superior and complete,
and in constant development !:

At times some of the some concepts can be tedious when read by an evolutionist, but quite compelling to a novice.
