A great read

I just finished reading Nature's Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe by Michael Denton, and it's a wonderful exploration of the incredible complexity and integration of life on earth. It's a bit technical, but not beyond anyone who's had high school biology and physics. If some of it gets a little thick, just skim past it - it's worth the effort. By the end of it, Darwin looks to be on pretty shaky ground. It was published in 1998, but is still available, and will definitely expand your awareness of just how amazing the physical underpinnings of life are.
