Darwin had it all wrong as contemporary science shows more clearly every year. Nine PhD scientists explain the flaws of neo-Darwinism and its scientific pretensions. Adaptation occurs. That everyone agrees on. Extrapolating adaptation to explain all life on earth is preposterous any way you look at it. These nine scientists look at Darwinism from nine different perspectives and it is wanting in each of them, most particularly in statistics and biochemistry, two of the most precise, most revealing areas of science and knowledge, compared to the archaic notion of "survival of the fittest." The significance of all knowledge is how it is interpreted and applied. Consider the president of the Royal Society in 1895, Lord Kelvin, when he said, "Heavier-than-air human flight is impossible." Two uneducated bicycle mechanics flew just eight years later. So much for the argument from authority.
It is a shame that Darwinism has such a stranglehold in public schools. If students were exposed to this book, (or a modified version omitting the Biblical and Creation references) there is little question that most normal to bright students would recognize Darwinism to be the farce that it is. This book is a very logical refutation of Darwinism (Macroevolution) and exposes the slight of hand used by Darwinists to take normal adaption within a species (microevolution) and extrapolating it to pretend that it proves goo to you evolution of one species to another (all without leaving a trace today that it allegedly happened.) Once that it is understood that Darwinists are mostly atheists who have an agenda to explain life without any reference to a Creator, then it is a lot easier to understand why they will not give up the silly notion of evolution, regardless of the evidence and logic against it. Intuitively, most ordinary people do not accept Darwinism as simply illogical, and contrary to common sense as they observe the differences in animals and people as they exist today, (claiming something happened over millions or billions of years does not make something virtually impossible possible or improbable probable) but this book adds an additional strong basis for rejecting Darwinism. The chapters on First Life and Genetics were particularly convincing. Although I was an anti-Darwinist before I read this book, it buttressed my opinion with some very strong arguments. Well worth reading and providing to your school-aged children.
This book tackles the most difficult and relevant questions facing evolution. It takes head-on the arguments that are supposedly the most compelling arguments for evolution/naturalism and breaks down their shortcomings in a clear, objective, scientifically sound manner. It is written by respected, credentialed PhD scientists in a wide array of disciplines. This book is for anyone who truly wants to understand the issues at hand rather than buying into propaganda or straw-man arguments that run rampant in most discussions about the shortcomings of molecules-to-man evolution and naturalism as an origins model. If you're an evolutionist who truly wants to understand the potential arguments against your worldview, this book is for you. If you're a creationist who wants to defend your worldview against the constant attacks that purport the debate as science vs. religion or fact vs. faith, this book is for you. There's also a companion DVD for those who learn better with visual representations.
This book is very well written. It covers many issues and topics related to the creation/evolution debate, such as genetics, geology, astronomy, and ethics. The level of science is very high, and I learned a lot from it, even though I have a PhD in biology. This book really shows the scientific inadequacy of evolutionary theory on all fronts. I cannot recommend this book enough, since it contains the latest cutting edge arguments against evolution. Reading comments about it on an atheist website, it has atheists in a disorganized scramble to respond.
If you are looking for a book to refute Darwinism, this is a great place to begin, or continue. Each scientist in the book is a well known, highly reputable PHD in a given field who identifies and explains why Evolution does not stand up to critical review in his particular branch of science.
Written by nine different PhD's debunking in depth and through the use of scientific data the supposed theories of evolution. Some of the technical jargon is over my head but the findings seem well supported and are explained on a level easy to understand.
This book is a comprehensive and technical refutation of the tired and worn out ideas of Darwinian theory. Big Science is losing credibility as the self proclaimed intelligentsia continue to pedal falsified theories, especially in light of the latest research. Great work, CMI.
I liked the way the book was written, not to technical, and easy to understand. I used it in my studies on evolution vs creation. Darwinian theory of natural selection and random mutation has been in serious trouble since 1900 and this book helps to explain why.
