  • Question Who made us Answer 1 God made us Answer 2 Evolution made us Which is it What is the true answer to the age old question of where we came from Is it even possible to know for sure In Finding Darwin s God, Kenneth R Miller offers a surprising resolution to the evolutionism vs creationism debate A distinguished professor of biology at Brown University,Question Who made us Answer 1 God made us Answer 2 Evolution made us Which is it What is the true answer to the age old question of where we came from Is it even possible to know for sure In Finding Darwin s God, Kenneth R Miller offers a surprising resolution to the evolutionism vs creationism debate A distinguished professor of biology at Brown University, Miller argues that the genuine world of science is far interesting than either the scientific mainstream or its creationist critics have assumed He begins by systematically demolishing the claims of evolution s most vocal critics, showing that Darwin s great insights continue to be valid, even in the rarefied worlds of biochemistry and molecular biology As he puts it, evolution is the real thing, and so are we Does this mean that evolution invalidates all worldviews that depend upon the spiritual Does it demand logical agnosticism as the price of scientific consistency And does it rigorously exclude belief in God His answer, in each and every case, is a resounding No Not, as he argues, because evolution is wrong Far from it The reason, as Miller shows, is that evolution is right In this lively, fast paced book, Miller offers a thoughtful, cutting edge analysis of the key issues that seem to divide science and religion As his narrative shows, the difficulties that evolution presents for Western religions are apparent than real Properly understood, evolution adds depth and meaning not only to a strictly scientific view of the world, but also to a spiritual one Miller s resolution of the issues that seem to divide God from evolution will serve as a guide to anyone interested in the classic questions of ultimate meaning and human origins.

    2. Evolution is a tricky subject There are few topics like it everyone has an iron opinion on an issue about which they know so very little With thousands of papers and books written on the subject in the past 150 years, there is no shortage of information, just a shortage of courage God loving folks are genuinely scared of this dangerous theory, and for this reason avoid the literature On the other hand, most of the literature proving evolution also defames religion and undermines faith Thus we ha [...]

    3. Ken Miller is a Christian and a biologist at Brown University, and one of the major anti creationist debaters I really liked this well argued dismantling of intelligent design and other creationist arguments from a scientific perspective His theological reflections weren t as deep as I would have liked, but Conrad Hyers The Meaning of Creation Genesis and Modern Science covers that angle Christians really need to be informed that A evolution is very well supported science, and B it doesn t confl [...]

    4. I chose this deliberately after reading The God Delusion Dawkins pretty clearly thinks that religion is incompatible with science, and I wanted to read the POV of someone who thinks the opposite I didn t get as much out of this book as I d hoped it seems to be aimed at people who believe in God, but not evolution So clearly I am not the audience Occasionally Miller will make dismissive reference to non believers and materialists , but he didn t really address their arguments in depth I think th [...]

    5. In the past 700 years science has had a way of humbling humans and , once we were the center of everything, created on day 6 in the image of God First we learn that everything doesn t revolve around the Earth, instead we circle the sun The sun isn t anything than just one of billions of stars in the Milky Way, which itself is just one of billions of galaxies The earth wasn t created created in 1 day, its billions of years old and humans aren t the first dominant species but instead just the la [...]

    6. Theistic evolutionists get attacked from both sides From creationists they are attacked for compromising with the theory of evolution And from their atheist colleagues they are attacked for joining the religious in believing in God Kenneth Miller spends this book articulating why he believes in both God and evolution.The first half of the book focuses on the theory of evolution it is true, best explaining all the evidence and showing how life originated He attacks young earth creationists as wel [...]

    7. First and foremost, Ken Miller is an excellent science writer, expressing things plainly and concisely in a wholly accessible manner that other science writers should study This is essential in dealing with things like irreducible complexity, which most people haven t even heard of, let alone understand As an evolutionary scientist and Christian, he represents a sorely misunderstood middleground between Christian creationists and atheist Darwinists His arguments against traditional intelligent d [...]

    8. This is the rare book that attempts to bridge the divide between fundamentalist Christians and atheist evolutionary biologists Miller has tendrils iin both camps, being a Brown University biologist and author of the the textbook at issue in the Dover Evolution Trial and a committed Roman Catholic In the first half of the book Miller ably displays the flaws in Intelligent Design while sympathetically attempting to understand what might drive people to embrace it In the second half he attacks the [...]

    9. Overall I thought this book was pretty interesting, and I was amused by how easily and thoroughly Miller dispatches all the intelligent design arguments I wanted a little from the last part of the book, in which Miller explains the compatibility of religion and science, and how science actually makes his faith stronger I suppose what I really want is a conversation with him, so I can ask all the questions his book raised for me but didn t answer adequately.

    10. While I may not agree with all of his views, I found Kenneth Miller s take on the science religion dichotomy very interesting, and fairly thorough in his scientific explanations without being over my head for the most part.This book doesn t delve much into his experiences with his own personal faith, as most of his references to religion are fairly ecumenical But this seemed fitting considering he was trying to take a rather big picture view I think the strongest part of the book for me was his [...]

    11. The author, a scientist and a Christian, does an excellent job of explaining one way his own that there need not be any direct conflict between science and religion.

    12. Published in 2007, Ken Miller s Finding Darwin s God is probably the most up to date thinking on the creation evolution debate I was terribly excited to find it it posed the exact question I d asked does belief in evolution really threaten belief in God He runs through quickly and successfully demolishes in my opinion the arguments for Young Earth Creationism and for intelligent design He also successfully summarises the variants of materialist atheism Dawkins, Dennett, Gould, etc Excitingly, he [...]

    13. Enlightening World view altering I think it is a MUST READ for anyone interested in either science OR religion I love both Enjoyable to read and fun to chew on There is enough science, enough philosophy, enough logical reasoning, and enough religious thought to make one pause, think, and digest however, it is not daunting or intimidating, just thought provoking I liked Jared Smith s 2 3 08 review Evolution is a tricky subject There are few topics like it everyone has an iron opinion on an issue [...]

    14. I have read many wonderful books on evolution and this is, by far, the poorest of the lot, for a multitude of reasons 1 He does not explain evolution itself well He takes shortcuts in explanations and doesn t expound on many concepts properly He does not take the time, as it were, to ask his audience if they understand what he s saying 2 He never does accomplish the aim of his book He finds no common ground to speak of The bridge he attempts to build never even gets off the ground 3 He is positi [...]

    15. This book is not my usual genre so I was surprised to find the continued interest I had in completing it In a community of logic based, rabid atheists the intellectual scientist community , Kenneth Miller has managed to keep his faith and actually feels his study of Biology shows proof that God does indeed exist The first half of the book is an amazing commentary, understandable to anyone with a High School knowledge of the sciences, on evolution, earth dating methods and components of matter, l [...]

    16. I enjoyed this book most at the beginning and decreasingly as it went on, despite the fact that many of Miller s views seem or less right to me It was helpful to see the clarity of the physical evidence for the great age of the solar system, particularly the chart of radioactive nuclides on pp 70 71 If this doesn t mean anything to you, no worries Miller explains it clearly It was also helpful to know that Phillip Johnson is a lawyer, not a biologist, and that some of Michael Behe s examples of [...]

    17. I was pretty impressed with this book It was well written and I think he made his point very clear I appreciate that this scientist is so willing to share his views on both science and religion and I love how he explains how science has strengthened his faith because that s how I feel also For those of you who wonder how a person can believe in God and science and if evolution is trying to replace God, this one is great for you.

    18. Wow What a fun book to read lots to think about I may not agree with every one of Miller s opinions, but he eloquently presents some very intriguing ideas and very often nails the truth right on the head I admire Miller as a scientist, a Christian, a writer, and a person honest and bold enough to say what needs to be said.

    19. I believe he did not provide much evidence of how evolution and orthodox christianity as he calls it can be merged He clearly states that he believes in both evolution and the trinity There isn t too much out there on this subject and I would be interested in reading something like this written by somebody else.

    20. Another book that with style and grace and reason, addresses the issues between the theory of evolution and Christian faith Well done, without insulting either side.

    21. Kenneth Miller, a professor of biology at Brown University, has made a name for himself in communities that are deeply concerned with the intersection of religion and science, both on the atheist skeptical side and the religious side He successfully manages to irritate both camps because he says that supporting evolution and deistic belief are not necessarily contradictory Miller is a Catholic This shouldn t be too controversial of a statement for someone who has thought about the issue for tha [...]

    22. Kenneth Miller is professor of biology at Brown University and a leading public figure in the relationship between science and faith, especially in public policy such as high school education.I approached Finding Darwin s God with the hope that Professor Miller would spend the builk of the book arguing for a relationship between science and religion however, the first half of the book is really of a justification of science Though Miller does an admirable job proving biological evolution to the [...]

    23. I first read this book when it came out in 1999 and thought it quite good then A recent facebook conversation with a creationist led me to reread it to see how well it holds up In the intervening years I haven t really kept up to speed with the Evolution Creationism debates, but I think Miller s book is still quite good.The first part of the book deals with the various shades of creationism from young earth on to nuanced forms of intelligent design which claim that the so called irreducibly com [...]

    25. It was a good book overall, dispelling the myths that creationists have about evolution in a scientific way Such as explaining why the earth is 4.5 billion years old, not couple of thousands only like what s written in the bible The book did not have the intellectual weight that I was looking for, in terms of reconciling evolution with the belief in god The only solid argument that the author made was about quantum physics and its implication The indeterminacy that exist in the building block of [...]

    26. None of anyone s immediate ancestor s died in childhood If they had, they wouldn t be you re ancestors Author, p 14, using Richard Dawkins idea I also do not believe that Darwin s wide influence comes from his patient and groundbreaking observations on orchids or barnacles Rather, it comes from one simple fact Evolution displaced the Creator from HIs central position as the primary explanation for every aspect of the living world Author, p 14 It may seem remarkable that the gas of party balloons [...]

    27. An excellent read for those who consider themselves both people of faith and science Truth is always the objective Truth is truth regardless the source.

    28. Evolution, Creationism, Microevolution, Intelligent Design, Materialism, Science and Religionwhere does one begin to understand what all controversy is about Start with Kenneth Miller s book, Finding Darwin s God.Kenneth Miller is a Catholic cell biologist that clearly explains all of these subjects He begins by taking us through the volumes of evidence supporting Evolution, including the scientific meaning of theory that is often misused by opponents of Evolution He then gives the details of Cr [...]

    29. Overall, I really enjoyed this book I enjoyed his writing style and his wit It was interesting to read about his perspective on science and his Christian faith The book also contains a lot of interesting information about biology as well Some of the information he discusses about physics, however, do not seem in line with what other prominent physicists say This may be because the book is not current.

    30. There is no lack of controversy and debate surrounding the hot topics of evolution and creation Evolutionists will often paint creationists as religious nutcases who deny every shred of scientific evidence given to them and go so far as to want not even a hint of creationist teaching in public schools since they claim it is a violation of church and state On the other side, creationists often consider evolution as a view held only by militant atheists bent on attacking God Himself and thus view [...]
