A Meaningful World: Broadens Case for Intelligent Design, Takes on Darwinism, Materialism and Nihilism
A Meaningful World: How the Arts and Sciences Reveal the Genius of Nature is now available at Amazon for direct shipping. Here's what scientists and scholars are saying about it:
"A Meaningful World is simply the best book I've seen on the purposeful design of nature. In sparkling prose Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt teach us how to recognize genius, first in Shakespeare's plays and then in nature. From principles of geometry to details of the periodic table, the authors portray the depth, elegance, clarity, and pure cleverness of a universe designed to nurture the intelligent life that one day would discover that design. A Meaningful World recovers lost purpose not only for science, but for all scholarly disciplines." Michael Behe, author of Darwin's Black Box.
"I am not exaggerating much to say that A Meaningful World is in the same class as the works of human genius its authors describe. It displays rare depth and breadth. Scientists should read this book to regain their justification for doing science, and poets should read it to regain a ground for the meaning of their texts." Astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, co-author of The Privileged Planet.
"Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt have convinced me that from literature to mathematics, physics to biology, the very phenomena of the world breathes intelligence. A Meaningful World is a masterful argument, a tour de force, framed with brilliance and wit." James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door and Why Good Arguments Often Fail.
"A Meaningful World is a wise and witty romp through the fallacies of reductionism. It is illustrated by charming examples that show how literature and science both teach us that we live in a world full of meaning, not the spiritually dead world in which the materialists would confine us." Phillip Johnson, author of Darwin on Trial.
"In a world where materialism fails and where intelligent design is evident, how should we think about ourselves in the grand scheme of things? A Meaningful World masterfully answers this question, ramping up the cultural revolution begun by Phillip Johnson in the 1990s." William Dembski, author of Intelligent Design and The Design Revolution.
"A Meaningful World cleverly integrates the intricacy found in literary classics with the aesthetic beauty of scientific discovery and the unreasonable ability of the human mind to comprehend meaning in both. In this interesting book, we discover that meaning is inherent in nature at every level."
Gerald Schroeder, author of Genesis And The Big Bang; The Science Of God; and The Hidden Face of God
