    Glenn brought this book to my attention and it sounds like a good one. I’ve read the Kindle sample portion of it. The central tenet or issue is this:

    If it is true that one can elevate the proposition “No information chain can exist without a mental origin” to a natural law — never proven (as with any other natural law) but never at odds with any evidence uncovered thus far — then philosophical materialism/naturalism (not to mention neo-Darwinism) is all but dead. (And it wouldn’t do a hell of a lot for the religion of Atheism either.) This case for this proposition is not made by clever and selective story-telling, as is the case with neo-Darwinism, but by cold, hard logic.

    This book centers on understanding information and in formulating theories regarding the source of information. Central to the gist of the book is that never has there been found a source of information that was not dependent upon the mind. If this holds up (and there is every reason to believe that it will), it is the same sort of proposition contained in any of the “natural laws” such as gravity which states that an apple will always fall down, not up. One day we could find an apple falling upward, but so far we haven’t. One day we could find information being created by some “naturalistic” process, but so far we haven’t.

    I just got a copy of “God’s Undertaker” and as you recommended – it’s a page turner. It’s hard to keep up with you guys but I’ll have to add this one to my list too.

      I do think that is a good book to start with. If you go for a second, make it Behe’s The Edge of Evolution. That book gives you a very good overview on genetics as it exposes the problems with neo-Darwinism in terms of explaining macro evolution. I may write an article soon that gives a condensation of the issues as objectively as I can given what I understand to be true from the seven books I’ve read on the general subject.
