In his latest book, The New Genesis, the author aspires to achieve an almost impossible objective, to explain one of the deepest mysteries which man has always wanted to uncover: the origins of life and man on Earth. He asks the question, ‘‘Is life on Earth such an improbable phenomenon and something quite unique?”
The main tenet of this book is to show that life on Earth is so unbelievably complex that it could not have arisen spontaneously, nor could have evolved into intelligent organisms as a result of random mutations. Such life could only have arisen as the result of a purposeful design. The author proposes that intelligent life on Earth was the result of a well planned long term experiment. It was not the outcome of supernatural forces but the product of beings which are very different from us.
The book takes a holistic approach to the genesis of life. It starts with the selection of a suitable planet and the necessary adjustments to its orbit, followed by bringing just the right amount of water to its surface. The development of life went through several stages which are still not plausibly explained by evolution, ending with the incredibly complex human brain. The actual process of genesis was not as described in religious literature. Quite the opposite. It was a very protracted and intricate process lasting about 4 billion years. The book proposes a hypothesis which many may find hard to accept: The beings responsible for the experiment on Earth are supervising it from close quarters.
The book provides convincing evidence of their involvement on Earth. The hypotheses presented in this book are based on current scientific knowledge and support a materialistic world view where no supernatural phenomena are considered. All the arguments presented here are based on the rational analysis of well known events and on proven facts.
This book explains the origins of life and man using rational methodology, and as such should be acceptable to both atheists and believers alike.
