Do not buy this book. Most of this material can be found online on various blogs and forums. Once you find these essays, you will see they are nothing but unsubstantiated rants and unsupported opinions from someone with almost no background in evolutionary biology. The only evidence presented consists of quotes from biologists active in the 1920s and 1940s, and even these don't contain information of any kind, just more unsubtantiated opinion. The author's (John Davison) own "theories" are also pure speculation and fiction, with no evidence presented, just calls for someone else to prove his ideas wrong. This book is fine if you are looking for a somewhat humourous compilation of anti-Darwinian quotes from the early 20th century. No matter what your feelings on evolutionary biology are, if you you want information, look elsewhere.
Is there no alternative to Darwinism? Is there no crack in the scientific armor of that explosive mix of ideology and the biological sciences? No alternative but to throw up our hands and dismiss the natural sciences from the discussion of speciation? John Davison’s semi-meiotic hypothesis is the only specific alternative on the table. Since his adversaries have chosen to freeze him out instead of engaging his ideas and working through the logic and the necessary experiments, Davison’s hypothesis cannot progress as it deserves to; nevertheless for anyone who takes an interest, it opens the door to a natural explanation for the origin of species, in the context of the reflections of a thoroughly respectable array of scientists from across the spectrum of the life sciences. Their lives and conclusions span the entire century and a half since Darwin’s time; they are a host to contend with. In this book, we have Davison’s updated essay on evolution – a real, but past event, in his view –... More > followed by some reflections on the persistence of Darwinism, the witnesses against Darwinism, several other issues of great interest, and a few that seem (to me) tangential. Because Darwinists deny not only the answers but even the questions and, if they could have their way, the existence of all their adversaries, it is all the more important for us to know the names of this invisible alliance, and how find the information that cinches the scientific case for life after Darwin.

John Davison is essential reading for anyone interested in combating the errors of the Darwinians. I strongly recommend reading John's unpublished evolution papers. Jerome R. Corsi author Senior Staff Reporter, WND
I am rating this book a five star, although I do not even have a copy of it in my hands yet. The reason I can do this with perfect confidence is that I have followed Prof. Davison's work for many years, and believe I have read all of his papers, essays and writings as they were written. This collection is a MUST READ for those that currently fall into any of the several nexus of thought regarding origins. Prof. Davison will stimulate you to think about the issues. He may challenge your ideas, or he may help you to refine and define them, but you will absolutely not be unaffected by the thoughts of this innovative thinker that is so rare in this time of lock-step Darwinism. Do not miss this!
