The question Who Are We? has been asked for thousands of years, usually within the schools of religion and philosophy. But in the 21st century the question becomes a scientific one. Genome analysis reveals new insights into our DNA and the unique structure of the human brain and nervous system that sets us apart from other animals. Since Darwin science has made huge discoveries that challenge the tradition of evolution and is writing new stories. Something happened 200,000 years ago. Was it intentional, was some major act carried out by our forefathers or another worldly intelligence or was it nothing more than a random accident? We are offered a challenge to our baseline beliefs and an opportunity to throw off traditional assumptions about who we really are. Formerly in hardback as Human By Design.
