The DNA Enigma

The Mystery of Biological Information & the Origin of Life

Stephen C. Meyer, PhD

How did life come to be? This eBook will examine the age-old mystery of the origin of life. Stephen Meyer argues that contemporary molecular biology displays powerful evidence of intelligent design. In particular, the mysterious digital code present in the DNA molecule provides a compelling scientific basis for reformulating the classical argument for design. Moreover, this eBook shows that the evidence does not point to a distant God—who created the universe and then left it to run on its own—but rather to the God of theism, who not only created the universe but who has also directly interacted with the natural world.
