How we view ourselves and the world we live in - our religious convictions - govern our thoughts and our actions. So when we subscribe to Darwinism, we MUST see the world as a dog-eat-dog place, a world of selfishness - a game of “us against them” - and we must behave accordingly. But what if that is not true - what if the explanation for what Darwin saw is altogether different?
This book is written by a spiritual, retired university scientist who in search of Truth slaughters enough holy cows to create a massacre of sorts: if our understanding of us and of our world is built on false beliefs and misunderstandings, that foundation must be shattered and replaced by a better one. The process began with a journey to the South Pacific - James Cook’s old territory: hence the name of the author. It was also a journey to Darwin’s old territory where the seasoned scientist realised that the story about evolution, genetics, and natural selection must be fundamentally rewritten. To not make it an unbearably hard and boring exercise, Truth is served piecemeal in the shape of essays that combine to create the full image within a reasonably short, and hopefully equally accessible, book.
