DARWIN'S BLACK BOX is a devastating attack on traditional Darwinian evolution from a biochemical perspective, a challenge that scientists have still been unable to address during the fifteen years since the book was first published (although Darwinian evolutionists, despite their general disdain for matters of "faith," have complete faith that the solutions will be forthcoming). In places, it's way too technical for me to follow, but the general argument comes through loud and clear. It's well-written and intelligently presented, and yet, seeing as how it makes one of the best cases for Intelligent Design ever presented, it has become reviled by those in the scientific community who find the idea of ID repulsive, old-fashioned, or threatening to their careers (especially those working in evolutionary biology), worldviews, or political notions.
