The Creation of Life: A Cybernetic Approach to Evolution

£14.99

Product description

Published by H. Shaw (1970). Hardcover. First Edition.

Arthur Ernest Wilder-Smith, more commonly known as A. E. Wilder-Smith, was a British organic chemist and young Earth creationist. He published The Creation of Life: A Cybernetic Approach to Evolution which defended William Paley's design argument with computer calculations of the improbability of genetic sequences, which he said could not be explained by evolution but required "the abhorred necessity of divine intelligent activity behind nature," and that "the same problem would be expected to beset the relationship between the designer behind nature and the intelligently designed part of nature known as man." His research and writing were influential in the formation of the intelligent design movement.

CONDITION: Boards are clean and very good. DJ has some small tears, scuffs and corner bumps. The text is clean and unmarked except for a neat, contemporary dedication. (see Photos)
