Probably. But, this would have to be a reason:
Just the knowledge that Darwin denial exists could be a problem for some in authority these days to advise you never to read a Darwin-doubting book.
Doubting the establishment version of evolution is a big problem for Darwin’s tax-funded, tenured dullards. Whom you will support to the end of your days.
Look, I was there at Cornell in 2011, when the papers noted above and now published so you can read them were delivered.
People, hear me: I have heard every lie and dealt with Darwin’s thugs, and fended off many attempts to obfuscate the issues.
I have personally (D O’Leary, b. 1950,Canada, d of JP O’Leary) been a victim of atheist smears and slanders which tell you more than anything else you might wish to know about what Darwinists’ further influence in public affairs will mean. Whether they claim to be Christians or not. If they misrepresent their position to Christians, more shame to those Christians who are willing to believe it, instead of consulting more responsible authorities.

This book on your link looks very good Ms. D O’Leary:
I agree with everything that is stated in the above paragraph. Although I think they severely underplayed statement #3 in relating just how inadequate evolutionary mechanisms are to explaining the information of life. In my few years of debating neo-Darwinists, I have yet to see even one example of evolutionary mechanisms generating any information above the non-trivial level. Despite abundant confidence and bluster on the neo-Darwinists part that there theory is a FACT FACT FACT, every example put forward by them has, upon closer inspection, fallen completely apart as an example of ‘upward’ evolution. The book sounds honest and sincere in its assessment of the situation within biology, and the last sentence seeking to push science forward out of the Darwinian rut sounds like cutting edge science to me.,,,
Of related note, I heard Casey Luskin debating some history student who had led a movement to try to gut the law that presently protects academic freedom in Louisiana. I was struck by this history student’s continual insistence that to criticize Darwinism is to criticize science and is to allow ‘religion’ in schools. ,,, I find his claim amazing because I have recently learned that naturalism, upon which Darwinism is based, if it were true, would render science, which he supposedly cherishes so much as a history student, impossible (See Plantinga’s Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism). Moreover, besides the epistemological failure that would result if neo-Darwinism were true, on the empirical level, down in the nuts and bolts of science, advances in quantum mechanics have rendered the reductive materialism, upon which neo-Darwinism is built, invalid as an explanation for what we find in life. Basically neo-Darwinism is shown to not possibly be true on the empirical level, and on a epistemological level neo-Darwinism has the seeds of its own destruction sewn from within:
OT: Another Remarkable DNA Rescuing Machine (Elucidated) -June 4, 2013
Excerpt: Some of these are composed of four strands that form stable structures called G-quadruplexes or G4s, so named because they tend to be rich in guanine. They are not uncommon,,,,
,,there is a machine that can unwind these G4s quickly and efficiently. Called Pif1 helicase, it is conserved from bacteria to humans.,,,
Pif1 is “highly conserved, from bacteria to humans,”
(Thus, at least to me, suggesting important functionality for G4s though precisely what that functionality may be is not known yet).
Of note as to how fast the pace of discovery is now moving in molecular biology, Four-strand DNA itself was just recently discovered:
Four-strand DNA structure found in cells Unusual nucleic-acid structure may have role in regulating some genes. – Alison Abbott – 20 January 2013 – with picture
‘Quadruple helix’ DNA discovered in human cells – January 20, 2013
Excerpt: In 1953, Cambridge researchers Watson and Crick published a paper describing the interweaving ‘double helix’ DNA structure – the chemical code for all life. Now, in the year of that scientific landmark’s 60th Anniversary, Cambridge researchers have published a paper proving that four-stranded ‘quadruple helix’ DNA structures – known as G-quadruplexes – also exist within the human genome.,,,
Physical studies over the last couple of decades had shown that quadruplex DNA can form in vitro – in the ‘test tube’, but the structure was considered to be a curiosity rather than a feature found in nature. The researchers now know for the first time that they actually form in the DNA of human cells.
“This research further highlights the potential for exploiting these unusual DNA structures to beat cancer –,,,
“It’s been sixty years since its structure was solved but work like this shows us that the story of DNA continues to twist and turn.”,,,
While quadruplex DNA is found fairly consistently throughout the genome of human cells and their division cycles, a marked increase was shown when the fluorescent staining grew more intense during the ‘s-phase’ – the point in a cell cycle where DNA replicates before the cell divides.,,,
It’s a philosophical question as to whether they are there by design or not – but they exist and nature has to deal with them.,,,
“The ‘quadruple helix’ DNA structure may well be the key to new ways of selectively inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells. The confirmation of its existence in human cells is a real landmark.”
