Private Eye 26 Nov, 2004
Your reviewer of Richard Dawkin's latest literary fantasy The Ancestors Tale (Eye 1118) was correct to point out the religious aspects of Dawkin's effusions. Evolutionism is certainly more a faith than a science. There is still no fossil evidence. Recent advances in molecular science have shown the incredible and irreducible complexity of cell structure and programmed information that rules out any evolutionary progression. Evolutionists now cite cell mutations as a possible means of evolution — yet in all mutations studied genetic information is always observed to be lost, ie what we observe taking place is actually the opposite of evolution. Discerning Eye readers not yet taken in by this false religious belief will wish to investigate the following more scientifically-balanced books: Evolution: A Theory in Crisis by Michael Denton or Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution by Michael Behe.
