For all this gushing, quite frankly I thought the book could have been easily twice as long. Some sections clearly require thought to flesh out fully the underlying rationale. Relative brevity might be a benefit, however: the main parts of arguments are stated free from what some might view of distracting detail while adequate citations are provided for those interested in digging deeper.
Particularly useful is the section on "Arguments Creationists Shouldn't Use." This is a very needed corrective: such a book as this not only will serve to push evolutionists toward greater honesty but will keep the creationist side more honest as well, both of which should be expected by letting both sides of a debate fully air their arguments (which, sad to say, doesn't seem to be happening to the extent that it should).Read more ›
therefore be impossible and creationism is the only possible explanation.
I used this text and Refuting Evolution once in a course I teach that examines the creationism/evolution public education controversy. With so much of Sarfati's over-simplification of issues and claims regarding evidence, most college students roll their eyes after 5 minutes with the text and none have viewed any of the explanations the author puts forth as even remotely plausible or worth their consideration.
The only observation that students consistently point out is the fanatic nature of author's failure to offer a scientifically credible alternative to any of the issues he raises.
If you are looking for a good example of creationism reasoning (or lack of reasoning), this is your book. I know I'll be using it on regular basis for that purpose.
