References for the beginning & up to Chapter Two Charles-Darwin-Caricature Court Jonesof Darwin Delusion Book One:

These are a mix of videos, science papers and web articles and books. The books have been linked as complete downloads wherever possible. Obviously these references make more sense in the context of the book. However, they are informative in their own right and I hope you enjoy and get a better idea of the research regarding Darwinian theory of evolution with all its flaws and a sense of the newer ideas emerging. I will post the references for the other chapters of the book over the next few weeks, but, this should be enough to be going on with for now.

More references to follow over the next few weeks

I hope you feel better informed after clicking on the links. As the references refer to Book One the Darwin Delusion, they do make more sense in that context.

Take care for now
