    A great application of critical thinking

    Unlike some of the other works I have read (against and some who were for) this book displayed a surprising clarity of thought. The author set out to make a claim and did it well. He makes the case (with the backing of years of meticulous research apparently) that Darwin's theory of evolution, while a great theory in the abstract, doesn't add up when applied scientifically to biology or the geological record. One thing I was unaware of before eading this book was all of the denominations of Darwinism. If your a die hard Darwinist, I challenge you to read this book. I was a bit distracted by a disappointing rant in the later chapters as he tried to lump proponents of free market economies into the same box as 'neo-Darwinism'. Some sort of right wing, political take off by the Darwinists trying to use the theory in economic policy. The author probably would have been better served to have taken these types of arguments to another forum.

    Easily read, yet intellectually stimulating

    Milton presents a well-reasoned case against several key tenants that Darwinists use to explain evolution, and takes time to explore alternative theories and evidences that are largely ignored or unfairly attacked by mainstream research and publication bodies. I would add that the critic cited from Library Journal has, at best, only skim-read Milton's writing if he can honestly claim that this book is filled with 'twisted logic' and a 'morass of falsehoods'. Milton's own readable prose and respectable volume of academic citations give testimony to a well-researched, well-reasoned argument that the reader should consider BEFORE reading the volume of messenger-shooting that has been subsequently targeted at Milton.
