Somewhat Informative, but Distorted
Although the author apparently tries to be objective, he nevertheless presents a distorted picture of creationism. He spends too much time on personalities and politics, and largely ignores the scholarly side of creationism. He creates the impression that Steven Austin is the only creationist who is a geologist. This is patently incorrect. There are many others, though most of them are not as well known as Austin. Numbers also lets his prejudices show when he claims that Austin exemplifies the ability to hold on to creationist beliefs, all in spite of scientific training, and solely because of personal Biblical convictions. Actually, Austin and other creationist scientists also recognize that the empirical evidence supports recent special creation over evolution and the old earth.Was this review helpful?
