The founder of evolutionary theory didn’t know that the function of every cell and every system in your body follows an intricate DNA blueprint. In fact, he didn’t know much about the human body at all.
Drawing on the most recent research as well as years of clinical work, Geoffrey Simmons tells the real story about your amazing complexity:
The brain resembles a continent swept by electrical hurricanes and chemical tidal waves that somehow makes sense out of reality.
A fertilized egg makes a journey as complex as the path of a golf ball that rolls 30 miles and lands precisely in the 18th hole of a course it’s never seen.
The immune system contains multiple defenses that confine trillions of microorganisms to your skin, like passengers innocently sunning themselves on the deck of cruise ship.
Dr. Geoffrey Simmons has studied the human body and evolutionary theory for more than 40 years. He received his M.D. in 1969 and now practices medicine in Oregon. What Darwin Didn’t Know is his seventh book.
