Contemporary achievements in physics today happen within the confines of cellular life. Applied micro-biology remains the final frontier where physics discovers the limits of its lofty abstract ideas.
Currently, you'll find the best scientists hovering around the Mid-Atlantic Ridge under the sea. It is this aquatic environment, highly rich in amino acids where scientists apply new techniques in cellular environments.
Orthodox Christians continue to discover the relevancy of the papal encyclical 'Humani Generis', only to discover the very limits that physical anthropologists ignore in their assessment of human origins.
Harry Jaffa had it right: the proponents of militant evolution, inherent in Darwinism, is to reduce or deny man's humanity to the outcome of a blind struggle of material forces. This denies, the very ground in nature and reason, of man's personal, political freedom.
'Your Inner Fish' is the latest attempt to synthesize archeology, biology and physical anthropology. Where Dr. Shubin asks 'why we look the way we do?'
Neil Shubin, the paleontologist and professor of anatomy who co-discovered Tiktaalik, the “fish with hands,” tells the story of our bodies as you've never heard it before.
By examining fossils and DNA, he shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our heads are organized like long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genomes look and function like those of worms and bacteria.
Your Inner Fish makes us look at ourselves and our world in an illuminating new light. This is science writing at its finest—enlightening, accessible and told with irresistible enthusiasm.
