Darwin's Doubt Steve Meyer’s Darwin’s Doubt has been a depth marker of sorts.

Money-losing Barnes & Noble and private misshelvers tried hard to keep the Cambrian explosion and other information-rich scenes from the history of life stuck in the awful, disgusting goo of the religion-and-science swamp.

Yet it stayed near the top in paleontology for many months, and has garnered 700 reviews (as of about 12:25 EST). The average rating of 4.5 stars suggests that Darwin trolls are outnumbered by people who want serious answers to serious questions:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #10,393 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)


This is another sign of Darwin’s weakening hegemony. People who want serious responses are beginning to insist on them.

Of course, for those who don’t want serious responses, there is always BioLogos, Templeton’s bad investment in, so far as I can see, reconciling Christians to Darwinism and naturalism.

The Paradigm Shifters: Overthrowing 'the Hegemony of the Culture of Darwin' Just when all kinds of people who don’t really approach it in a religious way are saying, huh? What?

Look, it had to happen. BioLogos may be best remembered as the crowd who finally decided to actually review the book before dismissing it, as if anyone now cares what the official religion and science crowd now think.

Great and welcom summery of how this book did. It has cut a swarth through the ranks of the foe's arguments. It should encourage more iD/YEC to do books. The meat and potatoes is welcome by the public relative to what they welcome in science subjects that get more sophisticated in what they are investigating. I say the killer book would be on whether evolutionism EVER had biological scientific evidence as opposed to it having less bio evidence or whatever ID /YEC thinkers say. Something that was never accurate, IN SCIENCE, surely must no have a intellectual claim to scientific evidence UNLESS everything is bio sci evidence if its offered. HMMM. NOOOO. BIO Sci must be real of what is science! Robert Byers
Andre at 1, they mean that someone has eaten all the chocolate pretzels again and the local deli has run out of our preferred brand. This is truly a coffee room emergency that demands our fullest attention, when we get around to it. We are living on No Name pretzels with non-Swiss chocolate. News
Somebody on Prof Moran's blog (could be the prof himself) says the IDiots are panicking. Whatever do they mean? Andre
