    1. This book is very technically complex with mathematics that went completely over my head. However, the fact remains that evolution does not answer all the questions that neo-Darwinians wished it did. Intelligent design provides that answer. If an arrowhead were found, an archaeologist would study it and classify it as perhaps coming from the Bronze Age. But to then turn around and state that the more highly complex DNA molecule 'just happened' by 'blind, random chance' is a huge leap of faith an [...]

    2. This book is clearly over the heads of non mathematicians, such as myself.Yet even I can see that Dembski shows conclusively the tremendous problem evolutionary theorists must one day confront if they wish their credibility to remain intact.

    3. This guy is a nutcase. He improperly applies mathematical theorems he clearly does to explain to philosophical problems to which they are not applicable.
