From the blurb for Intelligent Evolution: An Alternate Theory of Evolution:
Intelligent design is often depicted as science versus religion but this is not always the case. I have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, don’t follow any specific religion, and have come to the conclusion that the complexity of life suggests intelligent design. I believe microbes were designed by an intelligent entity and then released into the cold, vastness of space. Some haphazardly landed on our warm, wet planet and went on to evolve into everything we see here today, including us. This is ‘Intelligent Evolution’ because we evolved from intelligently designed microbes. Evidence of this and how these microbes took our planet from a barren, wet rock to a thriving, rich ecosystem is outlined in detail, essentially rewriting the entire theory of evolution.
From her educational background, Claire Quinn is probably a Canadian (“I have a B.Sc. in Genetics from the University of Western Ontario, a Masters in Physiology and Pharmacology from the University of Western Ontario, and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Toronto.”) Her book is essentially free on Kindle.
Her point of view is usually called panspermia, and has a respectable history, which includes Fred Hoyle and Francis Crick.
