I recently voiced my opinion to a pastor that I (like Billy Graham) had no problem accepting that God could have used evolution and that I might be descended from primates. He was surprisingly shaken and disturbed by this comment and a little while later he gave me this book to read. The title of the book seemed interesting so I agreed to read it.

From early in the book I became frustrated with the style of writing. Instead of engaging in a discussion looking at two differing points of view the author sets out with an agenda to try fabricate scientific confusion about evolution. At times I wondered whether the German author is perhaps unfamiliar with the term evolution which can be used in English to refer to biological/Darwinian evolution, or simply gradual development over time. When people refer to the 'evolution of computers' clearly gradual development over time is implied but Gitt pointlessly raises strong objection to this.

The author proceeds to present a large number of mostly obscure or poorly backed up arguments against evolution. I read the book slowly and carefully trying to find any solid arguments which could lead me to change or soften my views on evolution. Sadly all the authors claims about information theory (his area of expertise) were little more than an expression of his own incredulity of the complexity of life and in no way challenged me to re-evaluate the scientific validity of biological evolution.

I highly recommend this book for those who are truly born again Christians and tend to or outright believe in evolution. Some very serious thought needs to be given to the question: How much do you trust the Word of God. This book will give you much to think about.

Just the other day I finished reading Darwin's first edition of "On the Origin of Species" and while his theories did not sell me on "descent through modification", I could see how his observations of natural life throughout the world influenced his theory.

Before reading this book, I would say my beliefs about Creation lay a little closer to Theistic Evolution.
What a difference this book made.
Dr. Gitt pretty much demolishes evolution (plain or theistic) in 106 pages where it took Darwin almost 500 to build it up.

Dr. Gitt's strongest arguments, in my opinion, are his observations on death and how information is transferred. If information is mental or spiritual in nature, how can it be created by matter or energy? He also gives a few strong biological arguments: How would nature "just know" to make it so that male and female reproductive organs fit a certain way? What difficulties must have already been solved in order for an aquatic creature to crawl onto dry land and actually survive more than a few seconds?

Though he makes a good case for six literal, 24-hour days of Creation, I am still on the fence for a couple reasons that were not brought up:
1) From an etymological standpoint, people can only describe things with their current vocabulary. Whoever the author of Genesis was, though "stage" or "phase" may have been a better word-choice from God's standpoint, how could He expect man to use a word that may not have been coined yet?
2) There is still the problem of 2 Peter 3:8, where one day with God is as a thousand years, and vice versa.

Going into this book, my biggest concern was that Dr. Gitt would toss aside evolution, only to offer weak arguments (if any!) for literal Creation.

Pretty straight forward. It's short, but it's packed with info (no pun intended). Gitt shows that the entire problem with evolution is around a concept that completely defies everything we know (and know must exist) about information for it to be...information.
