"Divine Evolution" is a hybrid theory of evolution that combines what Leonard knows personally about God and what he learned from science. It was written in response to Richard Dawkins' book "The God Delusion." Dawkins, a zoologist, wrote his book not as a defense of evolution, but as an attack on religion. "Divine Evolution" directly attacks Dawkins' assertion that God is a figment of our imagination.
It all started when Steven Colbert interview of Richard Dawkins, and Dawkins stated that cars, computers, and cell phones intelligently designed, but humans were not. That caused Leonard's head to figuratively explode.
Leonard introduces, and discusses at length, four different theories of evolution that are used interchangably: big bang theory, speciation, abiogenesis, and natural selection. He presents his personal God epiphany, his personal experiences with super-natural, unexplainable phenomena that may be God at work, and lends support for abiogenesis.
The thought I find most enlightening is his concept of "God days" in relation to evolution. "Divine Evolution" evaluates evidence found in fossils, and what that evidence means to evolution and God days.
"Divine Evolution" is well organized, well presented, well researched, and profusely end noted.
It is a very good and interesting read, very thought provoking for both the religion believer and non-believer.
