Antony Latham was weaned on Darwinism, and by age 13 he had learned the rudiments of evolutionary theory. Through his teen years, university, and life as a doctor, he was a skeptic of religion and enjoyed disputing Christians about evolution. Then, in his third year of being a doctor in a remote area of Kenya, he became a Christian. This began a ten-year journey of reevaluating the evidence for evolution: "I have looked long and hard at the empirical scientific evidence for evolution in the areas of cosmology, paleontology, genetics, biochemistry, anthropology and psychology�. You will find that I come to a clear conclusion that the appearance of life in all its forms is not accident."

In the preface, Latham states that his book is not written primarily for Christians: �It is for anyone who genuinely wants another scientific view on nature.� I am rather tired with the bland and patronizing statements we receive from various experts in the media. I believe strongly that the story of how we got here is the property of the human race�not of a few scientists. I want here to de-mystify some of the facts, take them out of the ivory towers, and allow you, the reader, to make your own mind up.�� Over the next 14 chapters he reviews the evidence from cosmology to fossils to genetics and convergence.� The information presented is not new, but it is a great summary that is both scientifically accurate and written to be accessible to the lay audience. What is new is his final chapter in which he deconstructs Richards Dawkins� The Blind Watchmaker chapter by chapter. It is a fitting end to a great book from a medical doctor in the UK, for as he points out �because if I cannot out-argue Dawkins then there is not much point in spending time writing all of this.�

About the Author

What People are Saying about The Naked Emperor

�In The Naked Emperor Dr. Antony Latham showcases the powerful scientific argument that the universe and life were purposely designed. His deconstruction of Richard Dawkins� reasoning is made even more compelling by the fairness and the moderation of his critique�
--Michael Behe, Professor of Biochemistry, Lehigh University
