Daniel G. Vintner’s book Some Mistakes of Darwin and a Programmer’s Theory of Life provides a much-needed review of Darwin’s theory of evolution. Whether one holds to creationism and a young earth only about six thousand years old, or sides with evolutionary theory and an earth millions of years old, no one alive today was present to provide a first-hand account of how the universe and all living things came into being. We can say the same for the origin of Darwin’s theory of evolution; none of us was there when it was first written.
Daniel G. Vintner’s purpose begins with a careful examination of Darwin’s theory and the principles drawn from his peers. The author then follows the theory of evolutionary thought through the centuries to discover “how much it has really transformed and how much of Darwin’s original theory has remained intact to our present time.” Along the way, he encourages the reader to think about the questions Darwin and those who followed him failed to answer—problems many modern scientists have forgotten. Regardless of which side of the creationism/evolution debate you stand on, Vintner provides detailed research, sharing his sources for everyone who wants to verify his claims. Some Mistakes of Darwin and a Programmer’s Theory of Life provides readers with a mental workout, requiring stamina to make the journey from start to finish. Yet those not faint of heart will find a well-reasoned reward at the end. Without spoiling the author’s conclusion, readers who do the work to follow his arguments may find themselves convinced of this programmer’s theory of life.
