SEATTLE, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Making a compelling case for intelligent design landed Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design by Dr. Stephen C. Meyer at #7 on the New York Times non-fiction best seller list. It also opened at #10 on the Publishers Weekly bestseller list, and #4 on the Los Angeles Times list.
Discovery Institute is hosting a national book party for Dr. Meyer on Saturday, August 10th at 7:30pm in the Seattle Art Museum's Plestcheeff Auditorium. Attendees will have the chance to celebrate the book's release at the book party and hear from the author about how the book was received by both supporters and critics, followed by time of Q&A and a book signing.
The book has been praised by both scientists and celebrities:
- "An excellent book and a must read for anyone who wants to gain understanding of the very real—though often unreported—scientific challenges facing neo-Darwinism." – Dr. Russell Carlson, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Director of the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, University of Georgia
- No matter what convictions one holds about evolution, Darwinism, or intelligent design, Darwin's Doubt is a book that should be read, engaged, and discussed." – Dr. Scott Turner, Professor of Biology, State University of New York
- "[Darwin's Doubt] is destined to be one of the most discussed, most important, most revelatory books of the year." – Michael Medved, national talk radio host and author
- This book—and his body of work—challenges scientism with real science and excites in me the hope that the origins-of-life debate will soon be largely free of the ideology that has long colored it . . . a wonderful, most compelling read." -- Dean Koontz New York Times bestselling author
