Addressing ordinary readers rather than scientists, The God Lab deepens the discussion, revealing that careful science has overwhelmingly validated Intelligent Design.Douglas Axe argues that the intuitive belief many hold, that life was created by design and not natural selection, is scientifically valid, grounded in “common science”—the lifelong process of building and refining our understanding of the world through everyday experience. We all do science at this basic level, Axe contends, and this science justifies our inference that life was designed.As a scientist and the founding director of the Biologic Institute, part of the successful Discovery Institute, Axe has performed his own research and works with scientists from various disciplines to test the plausibility of Darwin’s theory—and build a more satisfactory alternative. The God Lab offers the most persuasive argument to date to show how science—from the common to the technical—backs up our most basic intuition: that life was created by divine design, not by natural selection.
