Wilderness at Dawn - The Settling of the North American Contintent. By Ted Morgan.

Sweeping essay covering pre-history settlements in N and S America by early nomads crossing the landbridge from Asia circa 10,000 BC (ancestor of the American Indians) all the way to the 1700's and into the Revolutionary Period.

My wife just got me Darwin's Black Box by Michael J. Behe, so hopefully I'll get a chance to sit down and open it.


I'm hoping you enjoy this book. Mike Behe was one of my chemistry professors at Lehigh - I had him for a Technical Writing course. I read his book when it first came out many years ago and really liked it. He basically explains from a biochemistry standpoint why complex cell structures and organs in the body such as the eye could not have evolved from simpler systems; the odds are just astronomical against it. He offers you the choice in the book to "skip out" on some of the technical explanations if you choose; unless you have a biochemistry degree you will likely not understand much of the technical jargon. But the bottom line is that he leaves it up to the reader to draw their own conclusions about the origin of man, without forcing religion on you. Although the implication is clear that if we did not evolve from lower life forms, then we must surely have been created by a God or supreme being.

That is the exact stance that I'm intrigued by. This weekend has been crazy for me, but hopefully I can crack it open this week. I have no smarty-pants degree ;-) , but I've done a lot of independant research and a lot of resources that may help me understand a fraction of what he attempts to convey.

Pretty cool to be in the Cafe presence of one of his pupils. ;-D

Nice.. that's a very good one. ;-D

You should all read Dune. One of the most intriguing and intelligent novels ever written.
