A Time To Hate By Robert Greenberger

But their unaccustomed harmony turns out to be caused by a natural gas released by their new home planet -- an effect that scientists now determine will kill them over time. A treatment intended to nullify the long-term damage and danger has catastrophic results, triggering worldwide carnage as long suppressed aggression and rage are suddenly released. In the midst of this maelstrom of hatred and violence is the USS Enterprise-E, on a mission which is going from bad to worse. Captain Jean-Luc Picard -- a man still waging his own personal battle for redemption in the eyes of his commanding officers -- must somehow find a way to resolve the disaster and save the lives of his crew.

The Edge of Evolution By Michael J. Behe
When Michael J. Behe's first book, Darwin's Black Box, was published in 1996, it launched the intelligent design movement. Critics howled, yet hundreds of thousands of readers -- and a growing number of scientists -- were intrigued by Behe's claim that Darwinism could not explain the complex machinery of the cell. Now, in his long-awaited follow-up, Behe presents far more than a challenge to Darwinism: He presents the evidence of the genetics revolution -- the first direct evidence of nature's mutational pathways -- to radically redefine the debate about Darwinism. How much of life does Darwin's theory explain? Most scientists believe it accounts for everything from the machinery of the cell to the history of life on earth. Darwin's ideas have been applied to law, culture, and politics. But Darwin's theory has been proven Only in one sense: There is little question that all species on earth descended from a common …
