Editorial Reviews

About the Author

This book is the result of a promise that eleven-year-old K. D. Koratsky made to himself thirty-eight years ago. Not being able to accept that faith can lead to truth, and recognizing that faith has produced at least as much war as peace, he declared that someday he would write a book that could describe truth and rules of interaction based on a standard of evidence alone, which could gain the consensus of and unite the world s various peoples. Nineteen years ago, with engineering and systems degree in hand, and career underway, the time had come to begin researching the project. To find direction, the history of religion was chosen as a starting point, as the related institutions tend to claim a monopoly on greater truth and morals. After more than thirty thousand hours of time and effort over nearly twenty years, the result is presented in Living with Evolution or Dying Without It.

I have two Science degrees and am currently working on my PhD. A masters in Molecular Genomics and Evolution, a Bachelor in Genetics, and a PhD relating to Human Genetics and Virology.
A friend lent me this book for light reading. I thought it would be amusing. I was very very wrong! This book is racist, misogynistic and vastly inaccurate. Although there are vague scientific themes that the author plays on - the book as a whole is pseudoscience.
I would NOT recommend this book. If you are look for some KKK science fiction - then this is for you. If you want some actual science - I suggest you look elsewhere.

The author of this book is a non-Scientist who promotes conspiracy theories attacking Science on web forums (posted on Yahoo 7 Sept. 2014):

"The scientific community has been corrupted, funded by government and corporate cronies that have a distinct Agenda (21). However, academics are largely willing to go along because they too place ideology over facts in most cases. Academics generally and scientists specifically BELIEVE in the religion of the Left (as evidenced by academics voting around 90 percent Democrat in the US)--that a utopian existence built of social equality is key to human peace and success. This is justified (in the typical academic's mind) by the postmodernist thinking that holds we humans are so smart and technologically adept that we can, or at least soon will be able to, rise above or go beyond any laws of nature that we find distasteful.

As the author of Living With Evolution or Dying Without It: A Guide to Understanding Humanity's Past, Present, and Future, I can assure you that there are many laws of mathematics, physics, economics, and, especially, evolution theory that will not and cannot be overcome no matter how much faith a true believer has. "

Format: Hardcover
The approach, accuracy and style of this book are impeccable: this is evinced by the reviewers, whom I join late. My focus is on its value and principles as applicable to the situation where we, as advanced forms of humanity, stand today. In setting out these positions and values Mr Koratsky offers directions that do not oppose further evolution. It warns against present attitudes, tendencies that could counter or (in one interpretation) effect a reversal in evolution.
On Evolution, many books have been written in the last half century. And on a wider range of man's inquiry on the life he is born into - which includes propositions that hold that, while evidently there are related species, these rise in steps and not slopes; and some say there are no races - much is being discussed in the new debating arenas: ranging from TV discussions, interviews of media-enhanced individuals, to blogs.
There is a need for solidly based books, of printed kind, to establish firm positions. This book, written in clear but precise language, using a battery of terms (as other authors now do) from technology and warfare - for Evolution has to deal with enemies - is an excellent tower overlooking quicksands.
Arena describes the present situation appropriately: arena means sand, a fine if gritty word whose origins are Etruscan. There, used for gladiator fights and for sports. Theirs a fine, tough, longlasting culture that was the foundation of the spirit that would spread across Europe after sevenhundred years, placing firm bases of knowledge, discarding sand as a basis for theories and discussion.
Earlier, the stepping stone that was Crete in the Mediterranean traffic of knowledge, also had arenas for the combat of athletes and bulls.

This is a fascinating new approach to Evolution, looking upon everyday things, people, and events from an evolutionary perspective. The book represents a lot of research and contains a lot of varied information. It is very readable for the general audience, and I recommend it strongly. M. Patrick O'Meara MD

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone interested in the broad aspects of evolution and not just science. And its such a timely book since we Americans seen to have a majority of citizend hell bent on taking us back to the Dark Ages and not to an age of Enlightenment.

For me it was the last chapter and beginning on page 56o The Final Firewall that is a must read, because we can see where we have been, but also need to ponder where we are going.

'Another possible scenario is that the West will remain in a stupor long enough for Islamic civilization to finally achieve global domination as part of a 1400 year project, creating an alternative by which top-down totalitarian control would be established under sharia law instead of relativistic principles. Indeed, while having fallen far behind the West in most respects, the Islamists have never abandoned their long-term outlook. And the fact that Islamists still both understand and adhere to Total War theory, remining highly attuned to the combat SVU in this regard, could give them a considerable edge as the West continues to disarm both economically and militarily. Clearly, if this were to play out the Enlightenment ideals would likely fall out of favor for a longer time, perhaps centuries'.

This this book is timely. And should be read by anyone who does NOT understand that evolution is not just about where or how we came to be, but is also about how the earth evolved via population, religion, government and the overall big picture.
