The Mystery of Evolutionary Mechanisms
Darwinian Biology’s Grand Narrative of Triumph and the Subversion of Religion
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Maybe, just maybe, Darwinian evolution has been a bit oversold. Luther College religion professor Robert Shedinger dives into contemporary documents as well as the historical record to show that the theory’s impressive public facade is belied by frank private admissions that even top scientists are unsure of what is the mechanism of evolution. The implications for religion scholars are immense."
—Michael J. Behe, Author of Darwin’s Black Box
“As a neuroscientist who had, for all my adult life, taken the Darwinian theory of natural selection as the absolute basis of evolution, I found that reading The Mystery of Evolutionary Mechanisms was like reading a thrilling detective story . . . This is a very compelling read and an eye-opening history regarding the making of a scientific theory, particularly by how theory-making can be influenced as much by the belief structures of a current scientific culture as by the evidence of their research.”
—Marjorie Woollacott, Prof. Emerita of Neuroscience, University of Oregon
