“Only a Theory” by Kenneth R. Miller

KENNETH MILLER’s new book, Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America’s Soul, is now out and available. Here’s the Amazon listing: Only a Theory.

Professor Miller was a star witness in the celebrated case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.

This is an excerpt from the review by Publishers Weekly at the Amazon site, with bold added for emphasis:

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative, this new book by Miller, [author of] Finding Darwin’s God, a Brown University biologist and leading proponent of evolution, dismantles the scientific basis of intelligent design piece by piece. He does this by taking seriously the claims of intelligent design (though with tongue often in cheek), such as irreducible complexity, and looking at the biological facts and the dubious conclusions ID concepts would lead to.

This is from another review at that same site, this one by Francis Collins, Director of the Human Genome Project:

In this powerfully argued and timely book, Ken Miller takes on the fundamental core of the Intelligent Design movement, and shows with compelling examples and devastating logic that ID is not only bad science but is potentially threatening in other deeper ways to America’s future. But make no mistake, this is not some atheistic screed — Prof. Miller’s perspective as a devout believer will allow his case to resonate with believers and non-believers alike.

There are other reviews by professionals, and the readers’ reviews are starting to pile up. There’s nothing for us to add. Professor Miller’s talent and reputation speak for themselves. This is an important new book.
