Safe to say I've given up such delusions and I'm sorry, but I have no respect for science deniers.

I was afflicted with this book as a "free bonus" from an ebay seller when I bought three science text books from her. I suppose she hated the thought that someone would prefer unalloyed reason and sanity and truth, so she tossed in this insane superstitious occult nonsense as a kind of virus to try and make me sick with ignorance. I am glad she did, however, and I am glad I read the absurd drivel, as it is an excellent example of Creationism at its best (which is to say, its worse).

This book is a rehash of fraudulent claims and out-right lies that have been debunked and exposed for decades: some have been known to be false for over 100 years, and it is a gross insult to the reader to be subjected to them.

The writers would have their victims believe that evolution is not an observed fact (which it is); they they proceed to offer bogus and fraudulent "knowledge" and "information" and "discoveries" that pretend to refute the "belief" that evolution did not and does not occur. Worse yet, they clearly demarcate between evolution and evolutionary theory in some of their baseless assertions, and then deliberately confuse the two in a few of their other false claims.

Worse by far, the book makes false assertions under the pretense of asking scientists "questions," and then attacks those assertions as if scientists had made them. This is known as a "strawman attack:" the writers do this because they know that the positions supported and defended by scientists are unasailable, so the writers must create false positions that scientists do not support and defend, and then attack those. It is far easier for Creationists to destroy positions that nobody is defending.

All in all this book is extremely insulting. The book assumes the reader is an ignorant uneducated superstitious savage living in the 8th century, with no access to valid information.

Format: Paperback
In Evolution Exposed, Roger Patterson, aided and abetted by publisher Answers in Genesis (AiG), explicitly denies the last two centuries of biology, geology, and paleontology (among other scientific disciplines) and attempts, without success, to debunk popular biology textbooks. Unfortunately for the Young Earth Creationist (YEC) cause the only thing that Patterson manages to expose - with about as much subtlety as a bladder heavy drunk outside a bar - is his profound ignorance and misunderstanding of evolution and the overwhelming scientific evidence that supports it.

Evolution Exposed is not about the science. It can't be. It is about ideology and dogma, in this case a convoluted and unreasoning strain of Christian fundamentalism, that abracadabra's the cosmos and all living things into existence about 6,000 years ago - the ultimate just-so story.

Folly is fast-tracked when "baraminology" the "classification of living things through the biblical concept of the created kinds" is offered as a superior alternative to phylogeny and taxonomy. We are breathlessly told about "a group of creation scientists called the Biology Study Group" who are "currently attempting to classify animals within created kinds ... based on several criteria, including genetic information and breeding studies." No results from this group are presented - hardly unexpected since creation science (a functional and intellectual oxymoron) faux-research programs and faith-based agendas are limited to quote mining and the deliberate distortion of mainstream science. Phylogeny, based on comparative anatomy, paleontology, and phylogenetics is a vibrant discipline that has given humanity extraordinary insights into the relationship of all life on Earth, past and present.

This is a great book. For those that gave it a bad review, it is most likely because they don't like anything that goes against their view of evolution. For the one stating gene duplication adds new information should really learn what information and gene duplication is. If I am reading a book and it has a duplicate page (rare)is that new information. No. Watch the video about evolutionist favorite Dawkins can not even answer this question, because a true example can not be shown.

Format: Paperback
EE is a book geared toward high-schoolers and its authors advocate openly challenging evolutionary theory in the classroom. The authors help provide techniques and tactics by analyzing four of the most popular high-school college biology textbooks at the time and attempting to show the claims that students can object to. So, the books audience is fairly limited and that was a bit of a strike for me. Since it is aimed at teenagers, some of the material and the way it's presented isn't quite to my fancy, and actually, some of it might seem a bit corny to high-schoolers, but I'm unsure of that. That's not said to deprecate EE, just to note that church things have a tendency to get a bit corny at times.

So, a lot of the book is spent outlining the claims of these biology textbooks, graphs of what they say, page references, etc. In fact, this makes up maybe a third of the book or so. The rest of the chapters breakdown by summarizing what these biology textbooks say and then they write a defense of their own position and cite articles to help students look up sources near the end of each chapter. Their method of defense is what is known in Christian apologetic circles as 'presuppositional'. Basically, the overarching thrust of their argument is that modern evolutionary theory and many of its conclusions have too many unverifiable assumptions and presuppositions that have to be assumed in order for evolutionary science to even take place. Thus, by attempting to discredit or at least challenge some of these presuppositions, one can argue that evolutionary science is questionable in many respects.

This isn't a bad book. It's just not for me. It's geared toward teenagers and the arguments are geared towards keeping it simple for their audience.
