Readers will find author Kenneth Poppe a knowledgeable, easy–to–follow guide as he focuses on the origin and nature of the species called Homo sapiens—man.
Presented with energy and humor, this up–to–date resource pulls no punches in its conclusion. All aspects of humanity that make us unique among life–forms, argues Poppe, were designed and implemented at the will of a supernatural Being. This is where the evidence points.
With a special gift for helpful analogies, good examples, and clear explanations, the author blows the lid off Darwinian myths surrounding issues like
- evidence for prehistoric man
- structures and behaviors thought to be remnants of earlier evolutionary steps
- the beginning of speech
- the origin of morality
Highly readable for anyone with a general background and superb for students and parents, as well as homeschoolers and educators who wish to present a complete picture of origins science.

This book is really great. I'd suggest that any student of science read it. I really think that for today's home school curriculum it would be a fabulous add. I have a bit of background in science, and reading this book made me wish I could take classes from Kenneth Poppe himself. He does a great job of breaking things down into everyday examples and really showing what he is trying to describe. The miracles of the creation are fascinating how the "coincidences" are endless. This would be a good book for you to share with a friend who is a staunch Darwinist. Maybe their eyes will be opened and a seed planted if nothing else.
Challenging the 'conventional wisdom' is never easy and requires courage. Dr. Poppe has demonstrated such courage a second time. This book is a continuation of the work he began in his first book. He expands and buttresses his arguments without just rehashing his prior book. His tone is warm and conversational. His arguments are hard and sharp as a fine blade. A person looking for a straw man to knock down should avoid this book. A person who is curious about the topic, or just enjoys a well argued point should rush to this book. Hopefully more books in this vain will follow.
