Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock Between Darwin and Design Kindle Edition
Evolution 2.0 is the first book to describe the Post-Darwinian Synthesis in plain English. It reveals experiments proving that, while evolution is not a hoax, neither is it random or purposeless. Changes are targeted, adaptive, and aware.
You will discover:
-Nearly every cell in your body can edit its own DNA, repairing destructive copying errors, charting a path for its transformation (page 82)
-Genes - far from being set in stone - 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 your doctor tells you to never stop taking antibiotics halfway through your prescribed course)
-How bacteria communicate and organize themselves into armies, staging coordinated attacks on your immune system (page 110)
-Brand new species in 18 months, sometimes 24 hours - Through two empirically proven systems of natural genetic engineering (page 146)
-How and when cells generate new information, yes genes that did not exist before - despite what creationists told you (page 150)
-Why DNA, which is digital instructions, is not merely like code but is code, same as 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 advance technology & medicine and fuel our sense of wonder at creation itself.
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... still rarely mentioned in school science curricula.
High priests of scientific establishment actively oppose research that threatens antiquated theories, labeling findings in scientific journals 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 research. As an Electrical Engineer, author of an Ethernet book and renowned business consultant, Marshall connects the dots in a new and refreshing way. He tackles some of the biggest questions about evolution and intelligent design with precision. He makes it clear when conclusions are proven by hard data and when it can only be inferred.
This book will open your eyes and transform your thinking about life and evolution vs. creation. You'll gain a deeper appreciation for our place in the universe. You'll the see the world
around you as never before: adaptive, efficient, and incredibly elegant.
$10 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, similar to the X-Prize, for a natural process that produces coded information. The prize amount is $10 million USD as of June 2019. Details in Chapter 23 and Appendix 4.

Standing on the knife-edge between traditional evolutionary theory and Intelligent Design, this book will inflame both dogmatic Darwinists and Creationists. It's irritating to both because it's friendly to the idea of evolution itself, and because it judges Darwinism too close-minded and reductive. . . . While most scientists submit to self-censorship and dare not question cherished assumptions, the boldest scientists like Albert Einstein, Francis Crick and Stephen Hawking never feared such taboos. Whether agnostics, atheists or believers, they never shrank back from big questions or unconventional solutions. Evolution and design are not either-or, but both-and.
--Jean-Claude Perez, author, Codex Biogenesis and retired IBM Biomathematics and Artificial Intelligence Interdisciplinary Researcher
Marshall is making an invaluable contribution toward more open and honest discussion on the subject of evolution versus creation. The book is well written, often witty, and is extremely thought provoking. . . . It is amazing that this 'non-biologist' has analyzed life phenomena at the cellular and molecular levels to such depth and width by applying information gained by cutting-edge methods in the life sciences!
--Dr. Kwang Jeon, Editor, International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology, and Professor Emeritus, Department of Biochemistry, University of Tennessee
Any person of faith who cares about how creation reveals God--and how evolution is actually a devastating arsenal of evidence against atheism--should add Evolution 2.0 to the extreme tippy-top of their reading list. Evolution 2.0 is equally shocking to both atheists and Christians, a genuine eye-opener in a category of its own.
--D. Bnonn Tenant, ThinkingMatters.org.nz
A very readable book and a devastating attack on the neo-Darwinist orthodoxy that evolution is nothing but natural selection acting on random variation.
--Peter Saunders, co-director, Institute of Science in Society, and Emeritus professor of Applied Mathematics, King's College, London
With considerable wit and amazing insight, Marshall delivers a compelling and forceful synthesis that sets a new standard for discussions about the relationship between science and faith. The result is no less than astonishing.
--Mark McMenamin, Professor of Geology, Mount Holyoke College
The book is wonderfully thought-provoking, as Perry brings a fresh perspective to the increasingly arid (and acrimonious) debate between Intelligent Design and methodological naturalism.
--Crofton Brierley, MS Biochemistry, Oxford University, former department head, Marconi Optical
A remarkable and useful resume of the state-of-the-art of this great problem of science.
--Stuart Pivar, author, Lifecode and On The Origin of Form, and cofounder, New York Academy of Art
I am committed to Young Earth Creationism, and thus cannot agree with some of Perry's conclusions. However, I highly recommend this book to any skeptic who is committed to a purely materialistic paradigm. The science presented here - from the latest research to the most engaging minds on this subject--make this the one book you should read.
--Ray Glinski, MS in Biochemistry, Pastor at Grace Church of DuPage
Evolution 2.0 is a modern philosophical marvel unlike anything I have read in my years of study. It allowed me to put down my guard. The author was not compelling me to believe in an ideology, but rather taking me alongside his journey of self-discovery. I came into this book hesitant. As a staunch creationist I found myself trying to fight with Marshall early on, but his arguments and presentation were flawless and compelling. It was refreshing to see someone examine both sides honestly.
--Marie Sarantakis, Comparative Religion Scholar, Carthage College
Armed with computer science and electrical engineering, Perry fights an uphill battle to unite the space between those who believe evolution is random and those who believe species are designed by God, who in some cases deny evolution itself. . . . Judge this book by the science within its pages--and enjoy the story.
--Andras Pellionisz, Biophysicist, Founder of Fractogene; PhD, Computer Technology, PhD, Biology, PhD, Physics
Sometimes the only way a puzzle gets solved is when someone looks at it with fresh eyes. Perry Marshall is an engineer who started to investigate biology. His book could signal a paradigm shift in the battle between Darwinian evolution and creation/ID. Maybe the war is over. Respond, criticize and debate it . . . just don't dismiss it.
--Justin Brierley, host, Unbelievable? radio program and podcast
Evolution 2.0 is clearly the best book I have read on the topic. It helped me far better understand the fallacy of random mutations and how they are really introduced. This is something I was never taught in genetics in undergrad or medical school.
--Joseph Mercola, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of The No-Grain Diet and Effortless Healing
Evolution 2.0 is engaging, thought-provoking, and challenges us to 'reboot' the riddle of evolutionary biology. By re-examining Darwin, Marshall asks us to reconsider the most important question we face: What is Life?
--John S. Torday, MSc, PhD, Evolutionary Medicine Program, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California-Los Angeles--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
