Evolution: A Third Way? work in progress….

  The above image is the front cover, in the making, of my physical book about alternatives to Darwinian evolution - hence the title: Evolution: A Third Way?   I was inspired by Prof. James Shapiro's way of viewing evolution - a third way between the extremes of Neo-Darwinism and Creationism.
