CRACKS AMAZON.COM BEST SELLER LIST IN SCIENCE

Signature in the Cell makes 2009 list of top ten best selling science books

SEATTLE, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Despite Darwinists' attempts to suppress the debate over evolution, a new book about the controversial theory of intelligent design made Amazon.com's list of the year's Top 10 bestselling books in science, just as the world marks 150 years since Charles Darwin published his own theory in his landmark book On the Origin of Species.

Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne) by Dr. Stephen C. Meyer is entering its fifth printing in as many months, and continues to sell strongly both online and in stores, according to the publisher. According to Amazon.com, books on its 2009 list of best sellers are "[r]anked according to customer orders through October. Only books published for the first time in 2009 are eligible."

"Darwin is mistakenly thought to have killed the design argument in science," said Robert Crowther, director of communications at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture, which is the intelligent design research program directed by Dr. Meyer. "Now, here's a book about the science of intelligent design that shows how the design argument is being revived with powerful new arguments relevant to our culture."

By using the same method of reasoning that Darwin himself used, Dr. Meyer explains how intelligent design can be formulated as a rigorous scientific argument. In Signature in the Cell Dr. Meyer shows that the digital code imbedded in DNA points powerfully to a designing intelligence and helps unravel a mystery that Darwin did not address: how did the very first life begin?
