Walter ReMine will
present a scientific alternative to evolution. The alternative -- called
Message Theory -- claims life was intelligently
designed to convey a message. The theory makes scientifically testable
predictions about what should, and should not, be found in life's patterns.
The theory explains the major patterns of biology, including: biologic
universals, Darwin's Riddle, the fossil patterns, embryology, so-called "imperfect
designs," and patterns of "convergence." The theory
turns the tables on the classic evidences about evolution, by showing
that Intelligent Design is a better scientific explanation. Walter
ReMine is a leading proponent of Intelligent Design, and author of
the book, The Biotic Message. (www1.minn.net/~science)

… a bold and fascinating
attempt to state a comprehensive theory, the short of which is that
life is designed to convey a message that
life is the product of a single designer -- as opposed to multiple
designers or Darwinian evolution. The thesis itself is exciting, and
for it provides a fresh perspective on a number of specific issues pertaining
to evolution. .... Original, and stimulating to the mind, and very thoroughly
