Signature of Controversy: Responses to Critics of Signature in the Cell


Discovery Institute Press 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Published in 2009, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design is recognized as establishing one of the strongest pillars underlying the argument for intelligent design. To call the book fascinating and important is an understatement. No less interesting in its way, however, was the critical response and it is with that this book is concerned. Despite Signature in the Cell being written about in print and online by numerous friends and foes of intelligent-design theory, few—if any—of the critics really grappled with the substance of Meyer’s argument. This is remarkable and telling. In this book, defenders of Signature in the Cell analyze the hostile response.
