Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant, deep and engaging the battle at the front lines - classic Sarfati! --Dr. David Catchpoole, PHD

When master logician/scientist Jonathan Sarfati takes on another front of the creation/evolution battle, his fans know they're going to experience an intellectual feast of cut-and- thrust philosophical swordsmanship with the opponents of Genesis creation/ID. But readers are in for an additional treat, too - his passion (not revealed in his previous books) for digging into the details of life's breathtaking designs. --Dr. Carl Wieland

About the Author

Dr Jonathan Sarfati was born in Ararat, Australia in 1964. He moved to New Zealand as a child and later studied science at Victoria University of Wellington. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry with two physics papers substituted (nuclear and condensed matter physics). His Ph.D. in Chemistry was awarded for a thesis entitled A Spectroscopic Study of some Chalcogenide Ring and Cage Molecules . He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals on high temperature superconductors and selenium-containing ring and cage-shaped molecules. He also had a co-authored paper on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22. In 1999, his first book was published Refuting Evolution, which countered a teachers guidebook by the National Academy of Sciences, Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science, which had been widely circulated and publicized. Refuting Evolution now has 450,000 copies in print. Later that year he was a co-author of the updated and expanded Answers Book [note: now entitled The Creation Answers Book], answering 20 of the most-asked questions about creation/evolution. He later wrote Refuting Evolution 2, countering the PBS Evolution series and an anticreationist article in Scientific American. In 2004, he wrote Refuting Compromise, defending a straightforward biblical creation timeline and a global flood, and answering biblical and scientific objections, concentrating on the errant teachings of day-age/local flood advocate Hugh Ross. It has been acclaimed as the most powerful biblical and scientific defense of a straightforward view of Genesis creation ever written! In 2006, he co-authored 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History with Don Batten, as a concise reference guide for Christians, including pastors and theologians, why Genesis can be trusted as real history of Creation about 6000 years ago and a global Flood. In 2008, he finished By Design: Evidence for nature's Intelligent Designer the God of the Bible. This demonstrates many examples of design in many areas, shows why chemical evolution can't explain the origin of first life, and answers many objections to the Intelligent Design movement by invoking the biblical Creation-Fall model.

Jonathan Sarfati takes a look at some of the remarkable properties of living things,simply letting the evidence take him to where it leads. I always felt that this is how real science works: go with the evidence and not some predetermined philosophy or bias. What he shows the reader is that evolution can't explain the existence of many of the systems and materials in organisms. They seem to be designed by an intelligent designer. When scientific evidence points to a designer, is it fair to sweep it under the rug or dismiss the information as religion? (The fact that there may have been a designer does not mean one has to embrace any religion or specific designer, remember.) Regardless of your philosophy, this book really is a wonderful presentation of how living things are made, their color, senses, ability to fly, etc., a real lesson in biology.

Excellent work showing the impossibility of many, many structures in biology having evolved because they are far too complex. Many structures, and more as we can study at the sub-cellular level, have complex inter-dependencies, each piece of which is marvelously complex, but utterly useless without other very complex structures. Even if even one of these structures had evolved, they would have been selected out, because on their own, they are at best useless, but are often harmful or at least energy draining without the other components.

This is a great creation book, maybe a little on the technical side but, well worth reading.

Over all nice, and proves its points, but in several places you have to be better educated than I am to understand it.
