Very simple and easy to understand.
Even if you have read up on evolution in the past I think this is a worthwhile book to study to bring you up to date on the research now available.
Briana M. Jeffers
Dr. Ashton's book presents substantial evidence against the Theory of Evolution that you may never have even known existed.

I have read 'Evolution Impossible' from cover to cover and found it a most thorough and soundly documented exposition of the impossibility of evolution. On noting Thomas Bloom’s comment about it not being fit for print, I felt compelled to reply in defence of this well written, comprehensive study.

The attack made by Bloom on Ashton’s credibility fails when the scholar’s professional standing and achievements are reviewed. He is an Adjunct Professor, which in Australian universities is a very senior peer reviewed position, and holds this position at two Australian Universities. Furthermore, he is an elected Fellow of The Royal Australian Chemical Institute, which is a peer reviewed recognition of eminence in chemistry, so it is highly unlikely his work would be easily refuted in these circles. Additionally, the endorsing foreword of the book is by Professor Warren Grubb, an eminent microbiologist whose speciality is the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Readers should carefully note what he says about Ashton’s book.

True to the form of the whole evolution hoax, Thomas Bloom has misrepresented Dr Ashton’s comprehensive, sound and thorough work mischievously. This reflects the ongoing campaigns of indoctrination by the media and western public education systems in support of the undue authority and influence exerted by sections of the scientific community determined to bombard and shape the attitudes and values of the public worldwide. By brainwashing millions into believing the theory of evolution is fact when it is an unproven and unprovable theory, a singular mindset about human origins and the present and future conditions of humanity is being developed, endangering many human rights, including free speech and freedom of expression.

Dr John Ashton uncovers the facts that validate a young earth and the fraud behind evolution. He demonstrates that there is no evidence or mechanism behind evolution. The circular reasoning of these "sciences" is shown to be the foundation of their approach. In Darwins' day and the simple cell you could get away with such foolishness. Today we know that the simple cell contains over 40 factories that must be simultaniously working for the cell to live. John goes on into the math done on this subject by many scientist that shows that there is not enough time in the universe (if you believe 15 billion years) and not enough materiel in the universe for even one aminoacid group to form never mind DNA etc.

As a Christian with scientific training, I had high hopes for Ashton's book. He does a good job bringing together many of the scientific/mathematical/practical arguments against evolution BUT it gets two stars because he should have stopped there. It is a logical fallacy that if evolution is false a literal reading of Genesis must be true. Not even Christians agree on how literally to read Genesis so he had no business bringing that up. Arguments for the existence of the supernatural, the identity of the supernatural, and a literal six day creation are irrelevant to the subject of "Is evolution a valid scientific theory?" Ashton really muddled his arguments by not sticking to the original question.

I enjoyed this book a great deal. I do not subscribe to Young Earth Creation. All I will say is that I don't accept the scientism of Naturalism and Materialism. However, the author gives twelve reasons why evolution can't be true. He isn't talking about adaptation, what evolutionists call microevolution. He says that Macro evolution isn't true and he gives facts that are scientific and not chapter and verse out of Genesis. I learned, for instance, that soft tissue had been found in some of the dinosaur fossils.by Dr, Mary Schweitzer in 1997. Of course, the response was that it was contaminated. She found some more and had funds to do all of the analysis needed to show that it wasn't. The significance of the find is that under normal conditions(the temperature of the earth where the fossil was found is 10 degrees C), the soft tissue should have disappeared in 20,000 years. So, that fossil, the soft tissue not being a contamination, was deposited less than 20,000 years ago. This is orders of magnitude more recent than the Paleontological meta-narrative of 65 million years. There are severe scientific implications, especially for the evolutionary narrative. So, that's a fact to consider. There were other examples given. I also checked out some of this on Google avoiding blogs. There were credible sites that were willing to consider that she was right. This is one example of some of the facts he gives to support his claims. It was very enlightening, but world views are tough to overcome.

Evolutionists won't really like this book but I found it enjoyable, fast paced, well-documented and informative. If you want a fairly non-technical excursion into the other side of the story, this book may be for you.

Today, so many are being taught the false idea that this world is millions and billions of years old. However, not a lot of thinking people give it much thought and just assume that evolution actually happened. However there is a Strong Delusion over minds today, in that many ignore the fact there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE FOR EVOLUTION anywhere at all. They don't hear the truth here, or chose not to hear it. Thus John Ashtons' book will certainly help enlighten the enquiring mind as to the fact Evolution IS IMPOSSIBLE. Learn the facts!!!!

There is so much evidence to the contrary if people would just look. Read this book and be enlightened , as to the TRUTH!
