More Biologists Endorse Darwin's Doubt: Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lonnig

From Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard L�nnig, Senior Scientist (Biology), Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Emeritus, Cologne, Germany:

Darwin's Doubt is by far the most up-to-date, accurate, comprehensive and in-depth review of the evidence from all relevant scientific fields that I have encountered in 40 years of studying the Cambrian explosion. An engaging investigation of the origin of animal life and a compelling case for intelligent design.

But, as you are no doubt aware from hearing it repeated ad nauseam by Darwin lobbyists -- which makes it true, don't you know that? -- ID is not science. It is merely religion, or as Nick Matzke at Panda's Thumb comments in a shambling 9000+ word "review" of Darwin's Doubt:

The real problem is when creationists/IDists insert God into the gaps in their own personal knowledge, gaps which have already been filled by scientists.

I hope Mr. Matzke, now completing his graduate studies, will have the opportunity at some point soon to explain his view -- a bit more succinctly please, since people are busy! -- to the scientists who have praised Stephen Meyer's book. See here, here, here, here, in addition to Dr. L�nnig, and more to come.
