Not by Chance! has 59 ratings and 10 reviews. Qhlueme said: Spetner, PhD in physics and years of specialized study in organic evolution, takes the reader. The core of Dr. Lee Spetner’s chal- lenge to neo-Darwinian theory (NDT) is in chapters 4 and 5. He points out that evo- lutionists have repeatedly stressed that. Remarkably Spetner does not straightforward deny macro-evolution, he claims that.

Rather than saying the bacterium gained resistance to the antibiotic, it is more correct to say that is lost sensitivity to it.
Perhaps it had no cytoplasm. Unless explicitly noted otherwise, all content licensed as indicated by RationalWiki: For concerns on copyright infringement please see: Not to worry, for Spetner provides appendices that take the reader more gradually through the processes of life.

Ed rated it really liked it Aug 05, Community Saloon bar To do list What is going on? This is a guy who knows what he’s talking about, and One of the worst books I have ever read on the Evolution vs Creationist debate. Spetner and Behe seem to be common go-to arguments for the anti-evolution crowd.
In fact, the common pattern is for phenotypes reflective of genotype in a population tend to form a bell-curve for a given trait, showing the genetic diversity spread around an optimum.

If comparing all possible biological features yields the same tree, then the tree could have some objective reality. Jason Tolkien rated it it was amazing Aug 23, But perhaps the first living cell was simpler, as they say.
I got this chnce because R’ Eli Mansour quoted it in a shuir. The author presents compelling scientific evidence that life on Earth could not have arisen by chance.
Spetnwr the NREH, they are not surprising but expected. If such adaptive changes had to be achieved by random DNA copying errors point mutationsthey would require long expanses of time, if they could be achieved at all. Although he mentioned the Cairn-Smith theory and the old myth of life originating in some indecipherable primeval soup, Dawkins just assumed that cumulative selection could lead to mAcroevolution.

Everlasting Nonexistence rated it it was ok Sep 22, We see then that the mutation reduces the specificity of the ribosome protein and that means a loss of genetic information. This page was last modified on 26 Marchat Divergence can lead to novel forms but is not a requirement for new species -thus spiders lo Spetner and Behe seem to be common go-to arguments for the anti-evolution crowd.
Creationists, including intelligent-design creationists, have endorsed Spetner’s book. It’s not often I start a book and never finish it, but when I do, it’s usually by someone too dishonest to accurately represent Biological Evolution, or ignorant and too lazy to properly learn the science. Spetnwr rated it liked it Jul 25, I would encourage anyone that reads this book to look at the counter arguments and also pick up biology books written by credible biologists.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Spetner goes on to list nearly six pages worth of striking examples of convergent evolution. Retrieved from ” https: Spetner gives the example of R. Nkt About Not by Chance!: He describes concrete examples of evolution, though not randomly; he describes the specific biochemical issues involved in mutations and in the examples of evolution he addresses. The author shows in fine fashion that randomness cannot be the progenitor of the wealth of information that has developed in living organisms.
