Customer Reviews

Yes, there is a and always has been a Creator!!!!
R. Potter
This fact in itself should make investigating what this book has to say by anyone with an open mind who really wants to know what the facts are a good idea.
Kirk Hastings
I doubt that there is an argument presented in this book which is not addressed and shredded by means of scientific evidence on that website.

Format: Paperback
"In Six Days", for those wishing to understand "young earth" creation theories, provides thought-provoking questions and answers. As with any book that looks at a highly charged issue, it is important to come to it with an open mind. That many reviewers here on both sides of the issue cannot keep from vehemently pointing fingers at each other says nothing about the actual content of "In Six Days", unfortunately, so I hope this review can find some middle ground. Rather than making this review simply another in a line of rabid apologetics for one side or the other, I hope to relate whether the book succeeds in accomplishing what it intends.
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.

After reading all the negative reviews I thought to myself - wow, this book is a complete sham (I had this book at home for years and never read it).

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.

Format: Paperback
First let me say that Darwin died even before the discovery of electrons. People who haven't asked serious questions about Darwinian evolution since 5th grade science class should not even be allowed to write reviews. (The same goes for people who haven't asked questions about Genesis since Sunday school.) Darwin never had the benefit of basic knowlege we take for granted, such as DNA, which was discovered long after his death. Imagine if you walked through an entire museum filled with greatly varying sculptures, paintings, and photos. Then you discover that under a microscope, all the brushstrokes and clay are done in such a way as to form tiny letters: "GACTCTAGTAA." Darwin never got to see that a code, the same programing, was the underlying thread running through the animal kingdom. So open your mind a crack and say, "Let's not rush off to church, but perhaps it's time to stop trying to patch up the Darwinian model?"

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.

Format: Paperback
Many of the reviews here focus on relatively minor points (such as the comments by the various scientists overlap to some extent, the book is a little hard to read in places, etc.). These are minor format problems. The point of the book is, there are at least 50 intelligent scientists (and there in fact are many more) with PhDs who find more than enough scientific evidence to believe in young earth creationism and reject the idea of long-ages Darwinian evolution. This fact in itself should make investigating what this book has to say by anyone with an open mind who really wants to know what the facts are a good idea. It wasn't written to entertain, like a video game -- it was written to educate and enlighten. And it does both to anyone who is willing to be educated and enlightened. For those who are not willing -- no amount of evidence will convince them to change their minds anyway.
