Product Specification & Summary

Summary of the Book
This book presents Dawkins’ viewpoints on the philosophical concept of a divine creator. He calls out the watchmaker analogy popularized by William Paley in his book Natural Theology. If the complexity of life can be compared to that of an intricately designed watch, and if this design could be credited to some unseen watchmaker, then Dawkins begins to wonder about a simple question. If all life has been made by one being, with one design in tow, then there is a problem. A seemingly simple creation such as the eye, despite functioning well enough for all creatures, exists simultaneously in differently efficient forms. Some creatures see better in the dark, some see better in the water. Some creatures can withstand opening their eyes in the face of wind, while others experience pain. If there is a watchmaker, Dawkins says, this one example should be enough to question whether he himself is blind. And if there was one, why isn’t he already complex? Because to make so many wondrous things, he must already be wondrous. So if the design already existed, why didn’t he copy it? With these and other questions, Dawkins presents a comparison between Natural Selection and Intelligent Design.
