Rethinking Darwin: A Vedic Study of Darwinism and Intelligent Design is written for any lay scientist or general reader interested in Darwinism and its alternatives.
Rethinking Darwin may be the first publication of its kind for the BBT. The book is authored by Danish devotee and science writer Lalitanatha Dasa (Leif A. Jensen), but contains chapters from some of the world's leading scientists in the field of Intelligent Design -professor of biochemistry Dr. Michael Behe, professor of mathematics Dr. William A. Dembski, and professor of biology Dr. Jonathan Wells. And the BBT's own Drutakarma Dasa (Michael A. Cremo of Forbidden Archeology, among other titles) contributed a chapter on human origins and the archeological record.
Rethinking Darwin discusses:
- the history and failure of evolutionary theory
- the fossil record
- the origin of life
- the amazing biochemistry inside our cells
- the philosophy and history of science
- how to infer intelligent design from nature
- the features in living organisms which cannot be explained by evolutionary theory
- cosmology, evolutionary theory, and Intelligent Design
The book also contains chapters on the latest in consciousness studies, reincarnation, paraphychology, and paranormal phenomena, and a final chapter proposing a Vedic understanding of how life began. This last chapter shows not only that Vedic knowledge can replace Darwin's materialistic theory of evolution, it can also explain, in a simple, elegant way, the many anomolies Darwinism sweeps under the carpet.
Easily accessible yet written with a serious, scientific tone, readers interested in the life sciences, evolution, or the debate between Intelligent Design and Darwinism will find food for thought in this book.
Contains several new illustrations by Origins magazine artist Rama-prasada Dasa.
