For example, I have before me a book titled DARWIN IN THE GENOME, by Lynn Helena Caporale. She holds impeccable credentials, with a Ph. D. from the University of California; in addition, she has taught at New York University, Kettering Cancer Center, and Georgetown University.

However, no where in scientific writings do I find scientists and skeptics requiring her to explain where or how life began before the evolutionary process that she describes, could take place. The very first sentence of her PREFACE reads: "Long ago, consciounsness began to emerge within life on earth. The first sentence of her PROLOGUE states: "There was a moment in time when the dust itself edged, in slow motion, over a boundary into life."
Therefore, even though many skeptics accuse the believer of not offering good evidence and reasons for their belief in a Grand Designer, Dr. Caporale launches into her sermon on the evolutionary development of genes without a trace of evidence that dust can become alive though the magic of time. She offers no reason and no support for such an Alice-In-Wonderland position.

I her latest book Darwin in the Genome , Lynn Caporale offers an exciting new theory that sees past both the ideas of a purely random model of evolution, and the alternative of the action of an external designer, to reveal a more comprehensible mechanism at work. A mechanism that looks startlingly strategic and purposeful, and yet is consistent with the basic Darwinian framework. Simply put: Not all mutations are random accidents. In the struggle for survival,from pathogens to flowers, birds to orangutans, baker's yeast to human beings,the fittest genomes become effective strategists, responding to, and in fact anticipating, challenges and opportunities in their environments.
In brief, Dr. Caporale examines the effect of Natural Selection on the very mechanisms that underly evolution, which generate variation as genomes are passed from one generation to the next. The result, she explains, is that the ability to evolve itself will evolve.
Writing with elegant clarity and rigor, Lynn Caporale describes the emergence of genomic mutation strategies, spelling out some of the more profound implications of these insights, including the possibility of bold new directions for medical research, and the inherent dangers of attempting to fix perceived "errors" in a human genome, all the while stressing the importance of human diversity, and biodiversity, for survival in a world in which each of us shares 99.97% of our DNA with every perfect stranger on Earth.
