    This is a superb book that is composed elegantly. Gary Parker is a brilliant scientist and an exceptional author. Unbiased, unprejudiced people will love the book, while ideologically narrow-minded people who don’t want to grapple with logic and veracity will reject it.

    A CLEVER DISTORTION OF REALITY

    This book (CREATION Facts of Life) is a glowing example of how our perspective so often determines our reality. Parker begins by describing how he started off life as a rational biology teacher dedicated the fundamentals of Darwinian evolution, which he taught with great fervor. At some point a friend converts him to Christianity and he suddenly finds that his beliefs in evolution are in stark conflict with Biblical contentions that the universe, the earth and all life was created by God a few thousand years ago in a mere seven days instead of evolving over billions of years through natural selection. To resolve this difficult conflict, Parker has crafted a series of carefully prepared arguments in an attempt to convince himself and his readers that everything we see is "evidence "of God's hand at work. His thinly veiled agenda is to debunk Darwinism (evolution) and promote his personal religious belief.

    As the majority of the book reviews on this site show, this book will be very convincing to Christians because it supports their pre-existing Biblical view of the universe. It is pure propaganda though and is very dangerous. In order to present his argument, Parker has been forced to abandon the reality of the scientific method of careful and systematic observation, data collection, publication and peer-review that has revealed the bulk of facts about our universe that we know to be true today. For you uninformed individuals; this scientific method guarantees the veracity of advances in science in modern society and it was developed precisely to PREVENT the kind of thing that Parker is attempting to do in his book. the substitution of facts for beliefs.

    Parker has therefore betrayed his profession by writing this book. TRUTH IS IMPORTANT! Belief is NOT science and his efforts to present creationism as science fall apart under objective, informed scrutiny. Religious people in America have a constitutional right to practice whatever faith they choose but they do NOT have a right to distort facts in order to deceive and grow their numbers. The thinking and aware members of the public will not be fooled by the skill of this man's presentation of his 'beliefs'. In the end, truth will remain truth and fiction will remain fiction, no matter how successful one is at concealing truth behind belief.
