Summary:

Axe argues that the key to understanding our origin is the "design intuition": the innate belief held by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can only be accomplished by someone who has that knowledge. For the ingenious task of inventing life, this knower can only be God. He explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid, and then uses everyday experience to empower ordinary people to defend their design intuition.
