The third view

There is a new book out by the name of “Beyond Darwin and Creationism”. The author, Peter Hertli, is a Ph.D in experimental psychology, a member of MENSA and has been studying evolution and creationism for years now. He looks at both sides of this very volatile debate from a dispassionate, third view (if there is such a thing) and puts forwards his own debunking of both theories and offers his ideas on quantum mechanics and parallel universes. He debunks both Creationism and Darwin for their reliance on miracles and violation of natural laws.
Are we to assume then, that miracles were always miracles, and natural laws existed as they do now, since the beginning of the universe and time?
This sounds fascinating. I’ve been interested in this debate though I haven’t read that much about it. One thing I do remember reading a long time ago was about a trial in rural Tennessee, where one of the attorneys was the famous Clarence Darrow. This particular trial came to be known as the “Scopes Monkey Trial.”
Anyone who reads the Peter Hertli book, comments welcome.

My knowledge on Darwinian and other creativism theories is very limited. But one thought always bothers me n this may sound v weird: How did humans come into existence? OK, slow evolution that started with maybe very tiny atoms and molecules. Where did they come from? OK, there was a big bang and so on. Who created that basic compact structure that exploded?? Maybe, GOD!! And, who created God??? I mean theres got to be a starting point, right? Where did that starting point come from? Out of nowhere??

I'd suggest actually reading Darwin first, rather than someone who disagrees with him on account of some imagined miracles. Or maybe I shouldn't suggest anything, since then be trying to make you more like me? OK, but seriously which part of Darwinism is unacceptable?
