    Why is this under science?

    More pseudo-science.

    Anyone can follow this one.

    **** It's been said that the two books the devil wants people to read the least are Genesis and Revelation. Many think you can either believe science or the Bible, not both. However, the case can be made that you need more faith to believe in macroevolution than in creation. Take the fact that from nothing comes nothing, the lack of transitional fossils, or the outright lies of Darwinism, among other points, and the reader is left with the truth. To support his case, a variety of theologians and scientists including Michael Behe, Hugh Ross, Norm Geisler, William Lane Craig, and Phillip Johnson, etc. The writing is done in lay terms, or when it's not, explained, so anyone can follow it without problems. It is both interesting and informative, demonstrating that you need not bend Genesis to fit science, but that science supports Genesis. ****

    Awesome book

    Ron did a great job making this a good read. He did have to toture the facts to get the truth out. Thanks Ron for another great book. God bless, William Hollaway.

    Superstition, not science.

    Creationists love to get their work misfiled in the science section of the bookstore, but their occasional success doesn't mean their medieval nonsense is legitimate science any more than Deepak Chopra's weird gibberish should be considered real medical advice. Nothing new to see here, and nothing that was not obsoleted by Darwin in 1859.
