Rethinking Darwin: A Vedic Study of Darwinism and Intelligent Design is an intelligent design book written by Hindu creationists Leif A. Jensen and Michael Cremo with contributions from intelligent design advocates William Dembski, Jonathan Wells and Michael Behe. It was published by the ISKCON Bhaktivedanta Book Trust in 2011.[1]

Overview[edit]

Leif A. Jensen (Lalitanatha Dasa) and Michael Cremo discuss the Hindu view of creationism whilst rejecting evolution. They claim that a cosmic mind (Brahma) accounts for the design in nature whilst Dembski, Wells and Behe reject evolution and give arguments for intelligent design from biochemistry, the fossil record and biology.[2][3] The book also contains chapters on consciousness studies, reincarnation, paranormal phenomena, and ends with a final chapter proposing a Vedic understanding of how life began in opposition to naturalistic processes.[4]
