Overview

Few scientists are willing to uncover the problems with evolution. Fewer still will boldly reveal the evidence that exists for the creation account. In this book Dr. Brad Harrub blows the lid off of the usual evolutionary dogma! This neuroscientist boldly details the evidence that exists for Christianity. Having walked through the halls of academia, Dr. Harrub knows first hand the evolutionary icons and indoctrination practices used in the classroom. He has turned his scientific training against the very evolutionary theory that many defend as their own religion. This is a comprehensive book begins with the question of whether or not there is a God—using arguments of logic and reason to prove His existence. The book was professionally laid out, and was printed in full-color throughout. It contains multiple pictures, graphs, and tables to make it easy to understand. Not only does this resource cover the foundational principles like the existence of God, inspiration of the Bible, the deity of Christ, and creation vs. evolution, this book also covers topics that have received very little attention. The author declared: "After years of careful and deliberate study and research, there is one thing I know for certain. Not only am I convinced... I'm convicted!" Brad Harrub, Ph.D.

    Posted May 21, 2011

    It is all explained below.

    This has been such an amazing book, it has impacted my life so profoundly that I have no real words to describe it. Never have I seen such a vast store of bulls*** all in one place, and it inspires me to rethink the world and the extremes of religion. I'm so impressed.
    With its flawlessly ridiculous use of the Bible as evidence (after trying to give scientific proof as to why the Bible can be used as evidence) and vague insults thrown in to opposition without any proper argument behind them, Convicted reveals just how much credibility it truly deserves.

    With all its attempts at justifying intolerance and terrible off-topic analogies to supplement it ('After all, where would we be if George Washington had tolerated the British troops?' I kid you not. That example was in there. And others. I have no words. I don't see how anyone could possibly compare tolerating religious beliefs that can and do coexist peacefully to THAT. What is this.)


    With all its trying to disprove evolution (by using the Bible as evidence...What?) and leaving me wondering what his argument against it actually was, because I couldn't for the life of me glean that from the whole section dedicated to it. With all this and more, Brad Harrub has succeeded like no man before in making a complete and total fool of himself. OMG READ IT!



    *Disclaimer: This is not meant to be a serious book review. Although most everything said are my true thoughts and reactions, you should in no way, shape or form completely believe everything I say, because this is simply a joke. In fact, read the book and find all the contradictions for yourself! It is extremely enlightening.

    **Disclaimer for the disclaimer: Please don't quote me on anything I have said thus far.
