Overview

This book evaluates the claims of scientific creationism versus materialistic evolution, while examining other scenarios. Consistently philosophical in methodology and perspective, the book is radically interdisciplinary in content, examining data and arguments drawn from natural science, philosophy, and theology. This work challenges the limits of human knowledge regarding every major question touching on human origins.
"Using the tools of philosophy, Professor Bonnette investigates the origin of true humanity. Along the way, he considers the questions of animal intelligence, the philosophical meaning of the species concept, Adam and Eve, and more. His demonstration that the standard human evolution story is compatible with Christianity makes his conclusion that the story itself may be shaky all the more impressive."

    A philosopher looks at evolution, etc.

    Many Christians today believe it is an either/or situation in regard to evolution and the Bible. They do not understand that in adddition to the alternatives of 'young earth scientific creationism' and 'atheistic evolutionism,' there are other logical and scientific possibilities. This study by Dennis Bonnette, professor of philosophy at Niagra University, submits the various theories of the origin of the human species to rigorous critical analysis.The chief value of this book lies in its defense of the historicity of orignal sin. The author argues convincingly that there is nothing in science which shows that there was not or could not have been an histotic fall from God's grace by an original pair of humans from whom we all descend. Bonnette, though, is not a biblical fundamentalist. He presents the alternatives of 'theistic evolution' and 'progressive creationism' as 'philosophically possible and scientifically defensible.' Since so much of the Christian faith depends upon the dogma of original sin, Christians will find in the 'Origin of the Human Species' an important example of reason in defense of faith. I highly recommend this book.
