This edition published in by HarperOne in San Francisco.

Written in English

This book presents a compelling new case for Intelligent Design based on revolutionary discoveries in science. Intelligent Design -- the idea that an intelligent cause, rather than an undirected process, best explains key features of life and the universe -- continues to ignite controversy around the world. In Signature in the Cell, Stephen Meyer shows that digital code embedded in DNA points to a designing intelligence and helps unravel a mystery that Charles Darwin did not address: how did life begin? Meyer tells the story of the successive attempts to explain the origin of life, and he develops a case for intelligent design based on new evidence using the same scientific method that Darwin himself pioneered. - Jacket.
