The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins’ The Blind Watchmaker is considered the most influential work on evolution in the last hundred years. Charles Darwin challenged creationists with his theories. Dawkins takes it one step further, making an eloquent and comprehensible argument for the ultimate question: Why do we exist?

“I want to persuade the reader, not just that the Darwinian world-view happens to be true, but that it is the only known theory that could, in principle, solve the mystery of our existence.”
