“Signature in the Cell is a defining work in the discussion of life’s origins and the question of whether life is a product of unthinking matter or of an intelligent mind. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate. For those who may be sympathetic to ID, on the fence, or merely curious, this book is an engaging, eye-opening, and often eye-popping read” — American Spectator Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling book from Dr. Stephen C. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design (ID), based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way, Meyer argues that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID. If you enjoyed Francis Collins’s The Language of God, you’ll find much to ponder—about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design—in Signature in the Cell.

Signature of Controversy is a response to the 2009 bestseller Signature in the Cell by Stephen C. Meyer, a book recognized as establishing one of the strongest pillars underlying the argument for intelligent design. To call Signature in the Cell important is an understatement. The critical response that followed the publication of Stephen Meyer's book was fascinating, but the fact is that few--if any--of the critics really grappled with the crux of Meyer's argument or with the substance of intelligent-design theory. This is remarkable and telling. In Signature of Controversy, defenders of intelligent design analyze the hostile response using the critics' own writings. Edited by David Klinghoffer and including essays by David Berlinski, Casey Luskin, Stephen C. Meyer, Paul Nelson, Jay Richards and Richard Sternberg.

Why is there something rather than nothing? Was there a beginning to our universe, or was it always there? Everything around us winds down; was the universe wound up? Is there evidence of design in our universe, or was it the result of dumb luck? Are there other universes besides ours? Is life common in our universe? Did life on earth start spontaneously from inanimate matter? Is there evidence of intelligence in the living cell? Is there enough evidence for evolution? Did all life have a universal common ancestor? Does thinking emerge from brain complexity? Does the self exist, or is it just an illusion? Can science explain our consciousness? Can the soul or self be separated from the body? Is there any evidence for an afterlife? Is there any positive evidence for the existence of God, or is it all inferred? Is proposing the existence of a creator pseudoscience? Does survival of the fittest imply a malevolent creator? Why all this pain and suffering in life? Is there any meaning to life? Do heaven, hell, and purgatory exist; where are they? Is God a Reality? is a lifetime study of these questions by a scientist.

When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the “Cambrian explosion,” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In Darwin’s Doubt, Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. During the last half century, biologists have come to appreciate the central importance of biological information—stored in DNA and elsewhere in cells—to building animal forms. Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, Signature in the Cell, Meyer argues that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, are best explained by intelligent design, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes.

This book contains an edited selection of papers presented at the International Workshop on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI Systems held October 6-7, 1988 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Our thanks go to all the contributors and especially the members of the program committee for the difficult and time-consuming work involved in selecting the papers that were presented in the workshop and reviewing the papers included in this book. Thanks are also due to the IEEE Computer Society (in particular, the Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing and the Technical Committee on VLSI) and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst for sponsoring the workshop, and to the National Science Foundation for supporting (under grant number MIP-8803418) the keynote address and the distribution of this book to all workshop attendees. The objective of the workshop was to bring t. ogether researchers and practition ers from both industry and academia in the field of defect tolerance and yield en ha. ncement in VLSI to discuss their mutual interests in defect-tolerant architectures and models for integrated circuit defects, faults, and yield. Progress in this area was slowed down by the proprietary nature of yield-related data, and by the lack of appropriate forums for disseminating such information. The goal of this workshop was therefore to provide a forum for a dialogue and exchange of views. A follow-up workshop in October 1989, with C. H. Stapper from IBM and V. K. Jain from the University of South Florida as general co-chairmen, is being organized.

This volume explores the genomics of cancer. Contributions explain how advances in biomedical research in the 1990s launched the genomics era - we are no longer satisfied to study a gene or gene product in isolation, but rather we strive to view each gene within the complex circuitry of a cell. In rapid succession, this mindset has invigorated the analysis of all molecular entities, from the genome, to transcripts (transciptome) and proteins (proteome).

This book presents a strong case for the Christian faith by using scientific evidence and philosophical reasoning. Although an abundance of Christian apologetic textbooks exist, most are not easily accessible because they offer long and scholarly treatments of subject matter that may not appeal to lay readers. This book differs in two ways. First, it presents the case for Christianity in a friendly scholarly prose, which enables readers to plainly understand each reason to believe. Second, these reasons are concisely structured so that within minutes, readers can quickly examine each argument in light of the evidence presented. 101 Good Reasons to Believe is essential reading for theists who wish to strengthen their faith in God and for nontheists who desire to critically investigate the truth claims of the Bible. This book includes topics such as: astronomical evidence for the existence of God, evidence for creation and intelligent design, refutation of Darwinian evolution, the historicity of Jesus, why there is human suffering if God exists, the accuracy of the Bible, and evidence for heaven and hell. The 101 reasons presented make thought-provoking and compelling reading for scholars and non-scholars alike.

If you think atheists have reason, evidence, and science on their side, think again! Award-winning author Dr. Frank Turek (I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist) will show you how atheists steal reason, evidence, science, and other arguments from God in trying to make their case for atheism. If that sounds contradictory, it’s because it is! Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain. In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing from God exposes these intellectual crimes atheists are committing and then provides four powerful reasons for why Christianity is true.

Combining the disciplines of biological, physical and chemical science, microbial forensics has a rapidly rising profile in a world increasingly troubled by the threat of ‘biocrime’ and ‘bioterrorism’. This valuable resource is a major addition to a body of literature reckoned to lack sufficient breadth. It presents a variety of phenotypic and trace signature methodologies associated with cultured microorganisms that, despite being genetically identical, may be characterized by differing cultural environments. One of the central challenges faced by those working in this field is the sheer diversity of potentially harmful agents, which in themselves total more than 1000 viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoan parasites. Their numerous additional variants render the process of ‘fingerprinting’ biological agents notoriously difficult, especially when the limitations of genetic analysis are factored in. Attribution of crime is relatively easy through human DNA, but lacking the genetic individuation of humans and animals, microbial forensics has to complement phylogenetic techniques with chemical and physical ones. In the best case, genetic analysis in the ‘biocrime’ sector can exclude sources, narrow the population of possible sources and support associations with potential sources. To complement these genetic techniques, chemical and physical methods can be used to compare ‘signatures’ imparted to microbial samples by environments in which they are grown and processed. Collating a range of microbiological fingerprinting techniques in one volume, and covering everything from statistical analysis to laboratory protocols, this publication furthers the aim of forensic investigators who need robust and legally admissible forensic evidence to present in a courtroom.
