For all this gushing, quite frankly I thought the book could have been easily twice as long.

Jonathan Sarfati wrote this book to specifically refute some of the claims made by Scientific American, and PBS TV.

Speciation is yes the loss or reshuffling of genetic information but also the gaining of extra parts or functions.

This book should be purchased by anyone interested in the origins debate. Creationists will like it because it is written from a strongly Biblical point of view. Intelligent designers will like it for the broad scope of evidence it provides supporting the ID position. Evolutionists probably will not like it :-) but since this represents close to the "state-of-the-art" arguments on the other side it is a quick way to be familiar with the logic they'll face in any debate type situation. Those who are unsure where they stand should read this with an open yet critical mind, ready to be persuaded. Those not interested in the origins debate should read it to see why they should be - in my opinion the point of view expressed in this book is literally being censored from our classrooms and this should be cause for concern in any society believing in the benefits of pluralistic inquiry.

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).

Analyzes and destroys the claim that all life is a result of mutation+selection with science. Covers fossils, dating methods, genetics, speciation, natural selection lies Dawkins says lies Eugenie Scott says. Great all round summary of the topic.

and really agree with the writer. In fact he doesn't go as far as I would, as the pro-evolve people of the fserries were much more militant. one teacher even screaming in disgust : "No! We cannot teach creation as well as evolution or the students might pick the wrong one to believe!"

Format: Paperback
Jonathan Sarfati wrote this book to specifically refute some of the claims made by Scientific American, and PBS TV. There are three sections corresponding to three claims, and the chapters in the sections are rebuttals of specific arguments.

He is very systematic and logical, as a national chess champion is apt to be. He quotes the claim made for evolution or against creationism, and then step by step refutes it. He also has an appendix listing several arguments that creationists use, that are invalid. If we are going to defend our position, we must get our facts straight!

I enjoyed the book very much. I learned a lot about science and biology, which is usually hard for me to study. Sarfati points out that just because you can demonstrate that micro-evolution occurs, that doesn't prove macro-evolution. The fact that the fittest animals survive doesn't prove evolution, either. Before you can "prove" evolution by showing changes within species, you have to know the origins, and that's what the evolutionists can't prove. Also, he shows that although species do change, they aren't gaining any new information. Even though they may be improving, it's always through a loss of information.

Format: Paperback
After reading both Refuting Evolution and this follow up, the one thing that Sarfati could never be accused of is being objective. There are some interesting points raised regarding the nature of scientific observation and the risk of making over-generalizations but then the discourse falls flat when every single discussion ends with something akin to evolution must
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.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book, embarrassingly exposes the deception employed by the PBS 2001 series "Evolution" and the journal Scientific America. Refuting Evolution is a great rebuke to a corrupt government, society & media that suppress the truth.

Yes that is the same PBS that is facing it's federal funding eliminated for it's bias. Yes the same PBS that fired one of their own liberal stars "Juan Williams" for "yikes" being nervous around people in Muslim garb at airports! Wow why so uptight Juan? Muslims only occasionally blow up airplanes and attack people in airports. Juan don't you realize you can't live forever everybody's got to go some time?

The book is easy to read makes scientific knowledge enjoyable, interesting and understandable to the average reader. Amazing what a boat load of lies evolution is, it is no different deception than Greek mythology only now the lies & mythology are disguised as scientific and not a very good disguise at that. I would say this is a must have book for the creationist. Christian churches & schools should use this book to train their people they would become little Davids, a lot less intimated by the phony Goliath of Evolution.
