Design and origin of man

Stuart BurgessSKU: DOM3928 ISBN: 9781846253928



Have humans descended from apes, or was man specially created? Do humans have unique characteristics and abilities that set them apart from all the animals? The answers to these crucial questions determine whether man is just an animal or a special spiritual being. This book shows that there is overwhelming evidence that man has a Creator. The book has many diagrams and includes: explanation of similarities between humans and apes; unique characteristics of humans; unique beauty of humans; archaeological and fossil evidence; the importance and relevance of the origins debate.

Good read

"convincing & well illustrated"

Burgess conjures up a sense of the sophistication of the human body by comparing it with that of the ape. Writing from a background in mechanical engineering the strength of his approach is his appreciation of the singularity of designed products, & his recognition of that same uniqueness in living species, particularly humans. Some of Burgess' ideas are challenging, for instance the suggestion that certain animals are 'designed' to make good sacrifices. However most of his arguments are convincing and well illustrated. He does much to retrieve from the clutches of evolutionary theory a longed-for sense of human dignity. GoodBookStall Review 07/01/05 Mark D Nicholls
