Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock Between Darwin and Design
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Creation Evolution Debate: 150 Years Later, it Still Rages. Both Sides Are Half-Right. And Both Are Wrong.
Meet the opponents:
In one corner - Proponents of Intelligent Design like William Dembski,Stephen Meyer, and Michael Behe. Many defy scientific consensus,maintaining evolution is a fraud. They challenge decades of data in biology, chemistry, genetics and paleontology.
In the other corner - DevoutNeo-Darwinists like Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Jerry Coyne,who insist evolution happens "willy nilly." Strangely, they sidestep the latest science, glossing over crucialquestions and fascinating details. But what if both sides arehalf-right?
What if both sides are missing something important, clinging on to outdated views, theories, and interpretations?
There is a third way. Evolution 2.0 reveals experiments which prove that, while evolution is not a hoax, neither are changes random nor accidental. They are targeted, adaptive, and aware.
You will discover:
-Nearly every cell in your body can edit its own DNA, combating random destructive copying errors, charting a path for its transformation (page 82)
-Genes - far from being set in stone - actually change and adapt to the environment.
-How germs re-engineer their genetic destiny in real time by borrowing DNA from other organisms (page 94) (it's the reason why your doctor tells you to never stop taking antibiotics halfway through your prescribed course)
-How bacteria communicate, organize themselves into armies, then stage coordinated attacks on your immune system (page 110)
-Brand new species in 18 months, sometimes 24 hours - Through two empirically proven, reliable systems of natural genetic engineering (page 146)
-How and when cells generate new information and genes that did not exist before (page 150)
-Why DNA, which is digital instructions for building proteins, is not merely like code but is code, the same way as the software on your smartphone is (page 38)
-How cells switch genes on and off in response to the environment, activating new traits that get passed from parents to kids (page 115)
-Many more amazing, scientifically verified facts that not only further technology and medicine, but fuel our sense of wonder at life itself. If creationism seemed to be leaving out important details, here you'll the missing clues.
You will discover fascinating real-time evolutionary lab experiments by an eminent scientist in the 1940s, whose work was recognized in 1983 by a Nobel prize & US postage stamp, but then... is still rarely mentioned in school science curricula.
High priests of scientific establishment actively oppose research that threatens antiquated theories, labeling results in scientific publications a "media fiasco".
This book explores 70+ years of under-reported evolutionary science. Evolution 2.0 chronicles bestselling author Perry Marshall's 10-year journey of in-depth research. As an Electrical Engineer, author of an Ethernet book and world-renowned business consultant, Mr. Marshall connects the dots in a new refreshing way. He tackles hard questions about evolution with precision, making it clear when information is proven with hard data and when it can only be inferred.
This book will open your eyes and transform your thinking about life, evolution, and creationism. You'll gain a deeper appreciation for our place in the universe. You'll the see the world around you as you've never seen it before: adaptive, efficient, and incredibly elegant.
$3 Million Technology Prize: Origin of Information is one of the central problems in modern biology. No one knows where the genetic code came from; no one knows how the first cell developed. To solve this, the author has organized a Private Equity Investment group which is offering a prize, reminiscent of the X-Prize, for a natural process that produces coded information. The prize amount is $3 million USD as of August 2015. Details in Chapter 23 and Appendix 4.
previously developed a new algebra for genetics in his PhD thesis at MIT (247), pioneered an engineering discipline called information theory. It offered a framework for understanding both computers and genetics. Seen through Shannon’s work, the parallels between DNA and our modern digital world were striking and beautiful. Scientists were finding systems in billion-year-old cells that were the same as technologies we thought we invented 30 or 50 years ago! This was exciting because the parallels
stored in layers: Russian dolls inside of Russian dolls. Here’s what I learned: • DNA nucleotides (ladder rungs in the DNA strand) form codons. Codons are groups of three letters, A, C, G, or T. • Each codon is an instruction to build one amino acid from specific elements. (However, the codons do not become amino acids. This is very important. The codons are not chemical building blocks; they are instructions. A codons gets folded right back into the DNA strand after it is read.) • Amino

As soon as they worked the diagram on the website form, anybody who thought sunlight was a code quickly realized why it wasn’t. (Try it yourself if you’re still not sure.) Anybody who thought DNA was merely like a code and not an actual code, needed only read the spec. They could see for themselves how neatly DNA
need to intervene to keep the Solar System from collapsing. (218) This is an important story because it demonstrates that, wherever possible, we should search for systematic processes, not consign them to the realm of the undiscoverable. Hawking’s story illustrates why many people have a problem with the theological perspective known as “God of the Gaps” (937)—in which gaps in scientific knowledge are taken to be evidence of divine intervention. That is to say, as soon as we don’t know or
