|I've also read recently, the excellent books "Evolution: A Theory in Crisis" and "Nature's Destiny" by Michael Denton.|
Didja happen to notice that the latter book walks back from the position taken in the former book?
Not really. In the first book, he doesn't really give us an alternative hypothesis; all he does is point out the many deficiencies of the currently held evolutionary theory.
In the second book, he starts to give us his own alternative: a designed universe and directed evolution.
I see no conflict.
