REVIEW: Michael Denton adds much to the growing gads of proof against Darwinism

Denton’s book is different from other books refuting Darwinism, in that the author examines the history of the matter as much as he examines the actual science. And though Denton’s scientific refutation of Darwinism is unimpeachable, this brief historical examination is what really sets this book apart and makes it worth the read, more than a lot of others. For Denton reminds us–or in my case actually apprised me–that even 19th century non-creationist scientists, such as the esteemed Georges Cuvier, wanted nothing to do with Darwinism and found it highly flawed in terms of the actual science behind the hypothesis. How come nobody ever told me that before??

I see any form of the Darwin hypothesis as hanging from a precipice at this point in time–and at some point in the not-so-distant future the whole thing is going to lose its grip and break apart. And here Michael Denton, with this work, has effectively stomped on the knuckles of the precariously dangling hypothesis of Darwinism. The populace at large has already abandoned it; inevitably the pompous magisterium of academicians will eventually follow suit.
