Nehemiah - “You alone are the have made the heavens,The heaven of heavens with all their host,The earth and all that is on it,The seas and all that is in give life to all of themAnd the heavenly host bows down before You. The book is very easily read as the science does not go too deep and there are extensive references for those wishing to go further. I would recommend Ward and Brownlee's "Rare Earth" for the reader wanting to delve deeper into the science. Generally though, "The Origin of Life" will appeal to anyone interested in evolution and astrobiology/5(13).

Schopf's previous book, Cradle of Life: The Discovery of Earth's Earliest Fossils (). Instead I found a rehashing of some of the standard, and in my view time-worn theories about the origin of life -- all of which end up rather /5(8).
The Mystery of Life's Origin is a book that had to be written. There is a critical necessity in any developing scientific discipline to subject its ideas to test and to rigorously analyze its experimental proce dures. It is Lifes origin book ill-fated science that doesn't do so.
Yet, surprisingly. A PDF is a digital representation of the print book, so while it can be loaded into most e-reader programs, it doesn't allow for resizable text or advanced, interactive functionality. The eBook is optimized for e-reader devices and apps, which means that it offers a much better digital reading experience than a PDF, including resizable text and Cited by: About the Book.
The origin of life from non-life remains one of the most enduring mysteries of modern science. The Mystery of Life’s Origin: The Continuing Controversy investigates how close scientists are to solving that mystery and explores what we are learning about the origin of life from current research in chemistry, physics, astrobiology, biochemistry, and more.
Charles Thaxton, Walter Bradley, and Roger Olsen have just released The Mystery of Life’s Origin: The Continuing Controversy, a greatly expanded and updated edition of the book whose first edition had a profound influence on the intelligent design movement.
The new book includes a historical introduction by David Klinghoffer and new. The origin of life from non-life remains one of the most enduring mysteries of modern science.

In The Mystery of Life's Origin, Thaxton argues for "Special Creation by a creator beyond the cosmos", and asserts that Special Creation holds "that the source that produced life was intelligent". He was the editor of the first edition of the Intelligent Design textbook, Of Pandas and People. The book was featured prominently in Kitzmiller :United States.
The profoundest mystery and thus the deepest inspiration is life itself. Discovery Institute Press has just published a greatly expanded edition of the classic of intelligent design science literature, The Mystery of Life’s Origin. Below is the original Foreword to the book by San Francisco State University biologist Dean Kenyon.
Book, Book of Life. The written word was a powerful creation in the ancient Near East. Both Egyptians and Babylonians saw writing as sacred, a direct gift of the gods.
Although Yahweh did not make writing a specific gift to the people of Israel, he did employ writing in his dealings with people. The new book is graced by an updated title, The Mystery of Life’s Origin: The Continuing Controversy. Meyer is of course one of the foremost scholars and ID proponents who have carried on the intellectual legacy of Thaxton and his colleagues.
College professors need to read this book in order to have a balanced view of the different theories regarding the origin of life.
This book is NOT a theological book and does not promote religion. It is scientific to the core and extremely compelling. I highly recommend it to the scientific community and other interested by: The book includes an updated version of the classic text The Mystery of Life's Origin by Charles Thaxton, Walter Bradley, and Roger Olsen, and new chapters on the current state of the debate by chemist James Tour, physicist Brian Miller, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, biologist Jonathan Wells, and philosopher of science Stephen C.
Meyer.5/5(1). About the Book Always a controversial and compelling topic, the origin of life on Earth was considered taboo as an area of inquiry for science as recently as the s.
Since then, however, scientists working in this area have made remarkable progress, and an overall picture of how life emerged is coming more clearly into focus. Origins of Life compels the intellectually honest reader to consider the possibility of a supernatural beginning to life on earth (along with its metaphysical ramifications).
After reading this well-reasoned treatise, only the most dogmatic naturalist will dare dismiss the supernatural origin-of-life paradigm out of hand/5(5).
I would recommend In Search of Cell History: The Evolution of Life's Building Blocks by Franklin M. Harold. This book focuses more on the origin of cells rather than abiogenesis itself, but does address the issue. Any book purely about abiogenesis.
Darwin's The Origin of Species is years old (give or take) and becoming immersed in the world of the 's - 's reminds you how much the world has changed.
In the 's these people were just learning about dinosaurs, and science wasn't even an accepted practice Not only was this a long book, it was an intense book requiring a ton of /5. We now know, for example, that the story of life's origin begins not on Earth, but in the interiors of distant stars.
