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

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

A zoologist/author (The Selfish Gene) defends Darwin with passion and elegance, but fails to wholly persuade. Troubled by the persistent resistance to orthodox Darwinism from creationists, revisionist scientists, and the general public, Dawkins sets out to show how Darwin provided "the only known theory that could, in principle, solve the mystery of our existence." He begins by identifying three ... Read full review

I'm a theistic evolutionist and a fundamentalist christian, yet though I must admit, for all my disagreements with Dawkins, he writes science very, very well. He doesn't understand much philosophy, yet he certainly understands Biology. There are certainly drawbacks, yet there are with every work of science

Richard Dawkins Blind Watchmaker
clearly shows the use of a very
convincing logic to those not used
to thinking much, nor used to the
art of the meaning of words, much
less used to analyzing clearly a
situation !
Nature's beings clearly do have a
reason to be alive and survive !
Otherwise they would not be !
But we do not know it nor do they !
To delegate this as being only
circumstantially "blind" in it's
origin, is really ignoring all or
most the underlying problems !
My logic is superior and complete,
and in constant development !:

Kindly,

Dr. Dawkins does a great job of describing and explaining the truth about natural selection. Dr. Dawkins mixes logical arguments, science, archelogical facts, and his passion for truth to dispell the creationist theory of Intelligent Design. At times some of the some concepts can be tedious when read by an evolutionist, but quite compelling to a novice.

User Review  - Alethea Bothwell - Goodreads

Excellent. Clear explanations, good analogies, wonderful logic. I GET IT! The one slight criticism I have is that sometimes he goes on a bit longer than I think is necessary answering objections and responding to alternative "possibilities." But he is just being thorough, I guess. Read full review

Like The God Delusion, the book is impressive in it's scope and the depth it covers its topics. And like that first book, both the scope and depth exceed my interest in the topic. There were many ... Read full review

I've got reviewers block. To overcome this, I'm going to write a page of absolute garbage that may only be tangentially related to this book. In other words I'm going to do what I normally do anyway ... Read full review

Review: The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design

User Review  - Adam - Goodreads

An excellent and engaging start. For some reason it became a bit harder to get through in the second half. Overall though, it's a fantastic explanation of evolution and how it's the only possible answer for how we got here. Read full review
