Outstanding survey of creationist personalities and politics
This is a well-researched, well-written and reasonably unbiased survey of the personalities and power behind the creationist movement of the latter 20th Century. Numbers provides an excellent resource that helps us understand the motivations of what is, in the end, a POLITICAL movement (not a scientific movement - there is no science to creation 'science'). It's amazing that I see reviews of this book that talk of how it concentrates too much on personalities and politics, but that and religious motivation (particularly American christian fundamentalism) are what creationism is all about. This book is an outstanding resource for anyone interested in the subject of creationism and the creationist players in the war against science and reason. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?
