Did man evolve through blind chance, as a result of random mutations? People often assume that Darwin's explanation of our origins is proven beyond doubt. But, as D Lowsley shows, this is very far from the truth. 'The theory of evolution,' he writes, 'accepts all that fits and ignores all the facts that don't.' Can Darwinism, for example, explain how new species evolved, how fins turned into limbs and wings, and how the eye, with its extraordinary complexity, appeared? And how did life appear in the first place? Lowsley's fascinating conclusion is that every step of our evolution points to purpose and intention. What exactly, though, is this purpose? 'In the human race,' he writes, 'the finishing line is not even in sight.'
