Providence Lost: A Critique of Darwinism is an anti-evolution book written by philosopher Richard Spilsbury and published by the Oxford University Press in 1974. The book offers a philosophical critique of the neo-Darwinian view of evolution which Spilsbury equates with materialism. The book claims that the neo-Darwinian view has turned into a scientific dogma and that naturalistic evolutionary theories fail to explain consciousness, free will, pain, love, language, and the behaviour of humans. The book advocates human exceptionalism and uses arguments very similar to creationists. It has been quote mined by intelligent design advocates.
