In Darwin's Doubt, Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life and makes a compelling case for the theory of intelligent design as the best explanation for the origin of the Cambrian animals and the biological information necessary to produce them. With a new epilogue that responds to critics.

The Disease Delusion By Jeffrey Bland chats with Dr. Alvin

Jeffrey Bland Click To Here For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms.

While advances in modern science have nearly doubled our lifespans in only four generations, our quality of life has not reached [...]

The Age Of Radiance By Craig Nelson chats with Dr. Alvin
