Inside the Human Genome

A Case for Non-Intelligent Design

John C. Avise

Here is the first book to examine the philosophical question of why, from the perspectives of biochemistry and molecular genetics, flaws exist in the biological world. Distinguished evolutionary geneticist John Avise offers a panoramic yet penetrating exploration of the many gross deficiencies in human DNA--ranging from mutational defects to built-in design faults--providing a comprehensive treatment of recent findings about the human genome. Avise also shows that the scientific evidence for genomic imperfection provides a compelling counterargument to intelligent design.
