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.

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.

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 !:

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.

It was kind of hard to review this book. It's so polar that it's astonishing. I mean, in one point, you'll be so interested in what the author is talking about, that you'll forget time as it passes by ... Read full review
