Michael J. Behe makes a compelling case that, contrary to Darwin's argument, the process of evolution is not random; in fact, his research shows that most of the mutations that have defined the history of life on earth have been nonrandom. Providing a rigorous evaluation of the evidence from a wealth of research, Behe finds that the "edge" of evolution - the line that defines the border between random and nonrandom mutation - lies far from where Darwin drew it in his description of the mechanisms of mutation and natural selection. Although this is a controversial and stunning result, it fits a general pattern discovered in recent decades by other branches of science. From physics to cosmology to chemistry to biology, life on earth stands revealed as depending upon an endless series of unlikely events. The conclusion is clear: The universe was designed for life.
