Is Earth merely an insignificant speck in a vast and meaningless universe? On the contrary: The Privileged Planet shows that this cherished assumption of materialism is dead wrong. In this provocative book, Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards present a staggering array of evidence that exposes the hollowness of this modern dogma. They demonstrate that our planet is exquisitely fit not only to support life, but also to give us the best view of the universe, as if Earth were designed both for life and for scientific discovery. Readers are taken on a scientific odyssey from a history of tectonic plates, to the wonders of water and solar eclipses, to our location in the Milky Way, to the laws that govern the universe, and to the beginning of cosmic time. The Privileged Planet contains astounding findings that should lead any individual to reevaluate and even to reconsider our very purpose on what so many have dismissed as nothing more than an accident of cosmic evolution.

    " Author Jay Richards is head of the ID movement and Discovery Institute of Seattle. They go into great detail explaining just how our planet is fine tuned for carbon-based life form to exist. To much detail in 300 or so pages..I couldn't stick with it. "

    " Contains lots of scientific evidence but I was lost on the significance of the chief point they were trying to make that Earth is so suited for observation. I think the weighting is in the wrong place. "

    " I thought it was a good book. But once the author discusses life forms he assumes that all life forms are like us and most (but not all) life forms found on this planet. Carbon based, Aerobic, need the sun (and moon). Which I am not convinced that is the only forms of life possible. "

    " Very dense, and, of course, very scientific. If you're into that kind of thing, it is a very interesting arguement for intelligent design. "
