To create this book, many Christian scientists (of various disciplines) from around the world were asked "Why do you believe in a literal six-day biblical creation as the origin of life on earth?" The fifty best responses ultimately were included.
Sadly, this format makes "In Six Days" less than useful - on any level. The answers provided resemble testimonies rather than useful scientific analyses. Respondents tended to repeat each other, answer too generally, or (conversely) too technically on a single point. Further compounding the problems of the book, the great majority of the scientists refer to points outside their own discipline. If I were looking for serious answers to important questions about a six-day creation, would I want to read a mechanical engineer's musings on organic chemistry? Probably not. This book would be infinitely more helpful if the question had been posed as "What are five discoveries within your field of expertise that point specifically to a six-day creation?" But as phrased here, the original question automatically leads to unfocused answers.
In truth, only about twenty of the respondents provide compelling arguments.Read more ›
The book's biodiversity essay was quite good. We all know from documentaries what happens if you subtract even just one animal from an ecosystem:
-the plants that were fertilized by that animal would die,
- the predators that ate that animal would die, and that predator's other prey would thrive and decimate their food sources and die off,
-the plants that were eaten by the animal run wild and overgrow other plants so that those would also die,
-then the animals that ate THAT plant would then die, ad nauseum.
So that said, how did the first species survive after crawling out of the ooze? What did it eat, and where did its food in turn, get ITS food? The writer continued on to raise further issues in that essay.Read more ›
I'm sure it is poorly written and mostly devoid of any scientific information whatsoever.
I took the book off my shelf, blew the dust off the top and read it.
I was wrong.
It is a well written book by 50 scientists who believe in a literal 6 day creation.
The goal of the book is to state why these scientists, a few were aggressive evolutionists, changed their point of view or found creation to be a more reasonable explanation to our existence.
My opinion is that the negative reviews have more to do with damage control than an open mind inquiring on the facts but that's what I would do if I still believed in evolution.
"...there is an interesting phenomenon among the stars that gives a time scale in agreement with that in the Bible. By watching other galaxies of similar composition to our own, we know aboiut how often there are supervovae explosions in our Milky Way because of the nebula remnants of the explosions. We can calculate that we should be able to detect those nebulae for millions of years before they diffuse and blend into the background. Our radio telescopes can see through the dust with ease and detect many more supernova remnant than we can see at optical wavelengths. How many supernova remnants are out htere in our own galaxy? There are only enough for about 7000, not millions of years of explosions."
And such statements are made over and over again in the book with clarity and punch.Read more ›
