About the Author

Dr. Safarti studied science at Victoria University of Wellington. He obtained a B.Sc. in Chemistry with two physics papers substituted (nuclear and condensed matter physics). His Ph.D. in Chemistry was awarded for a thesis entitled A Spectroscopic Study of some Chalcogenide Ring and Cage Molecules . He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals on high temperature superconductors and selenium-containing ring and cage-shaped molecules. He also had a co-authored paper on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22. In 1999, his first book was published Refuting Evolution, which countered a teachers guidebook by the National Academy of Sciences, Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science, which had been widely circulated and publicized. Refuting Evolution now has 450,000 copies in print. Later that year he was a co-author of the updated and expanded Answers Book [note: now entitled The Creation Answers Book], answering 20 of the most-asked questions about creation/evolution. He later wrote Refuting Evolution 2, countering the PBS Evolution series and an anticreationist article in Scientific American. In 2004, he wrote Refuting Compromise, defending a straightforward biblical creation timeline and a global flood, and answering biblical and scientific objections, concentrating on the errant teachings of day-age/local flood advocate Hugh Ross. It has been acclaimed as the most powerful biblical and scientific defense of a straightforward view of Genesis creation ever written! In 2006, he co-authored 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History with Don Batten, as a concise reference guide for Christians, including pastors and theologians, why Genesis can be trusted as real history of Creation about 6000 years ago and a global Flood. In 2008, he finished By Design: Evidence for nature's Intelligent Designer the God of the Bible. This demonstrates many examples of design in many areas, shows why chemical evolution can't explain the origin of first life, and answers many objections to the Intelligent Design movement by invoking the biblical Creation-Fall model.

These are the questions about the hypothesis of evolution that no one seems to be willing (or allowed?) to ask in high school and university biology classrooms. I got through a high school science program and two university science degrees, and evolution was merely ASSUMED throughout. NONE of the important questions asked in this book were ever entertained. A very important work here, if anyone wishes to critically examine the scientific issues surrounding the evolutionary paradigm. Highly recommended.

Sarfati is a great communicator. He is very concise and defines the problem well. I recommend this book for creationist and evolutionist alike - the science is solid but not so in depth to intimidate the layman. This book cites facts unlike many evolution books such as Dawkins, "God Delusion" which is a book of philosophy an rarely if ever presents any irrefutable facts for evolution unlike Sarfati's work.

Dr Sarfati absolutely smashes evo-mumbo jumbo. When asked for evidence for evolution, most evolutionists produce examples of natural selection. When it comes to actual protozoans to people evolution THERE IS NO EVIDENCE! None from the fossil record, none from the lab, none observed in nature... So, what's the evidence for evolution??? Anybody? Even Lenski and his 50,000 generations of E coli could produce nothing but citrate up take...an ability E coli already possess.
Good bye evolution. Hello Creation.

As a youth pastor I am constantly looking for resources to help youth to gain a better understanding of scripture and also to be able to tie it into real life and the sciences. This book does a nice job of that but is diverse enough to cover several different key questions.

This is an amazing book. You may find some naysayer who listen to circular reasoning or cannot get past their belief that there cannot be a God because that would be absurd. Just use common sense and read this short book. It is amazing! Easy to read - easy to understand. (This is another one of those must read books.) May change the way you look at the world and whats in it. Jake Sorenson

I have recommended this book for years now. It is very informative and it is written on a lay-level. I must admit that it is a little hard for me to justify buying it anymore since it is avaiable to read for free at Creation Ministry International's website... but regardless, it is worth reading whether it is online or the book.

In my opinion, while every chapter has great information, I believe the highlight of the book are Chapter 1: "Facts & Bias" and Chapter 9: "Is the Design Explanation Legitimate?" The book is short, but I realize some people don't enjoy reading. So if you have the book (or are looking at it online) and don't feel like reading the entire book, at least read the 1st and 9th chapter.

Refuting Evolution is a great book for all Christians, especially those who are struggling with evolution.

This book should be required reading in high schools and colleges, especially where students are being indoctriinated in Darwinian fantasy. An honest scientist has nothing to fear by exposing his students to the facts of science as presented by Dr. Sarfati.

Sometimes you can tell a book by its cover. The illustration gives everything away. A menacing hammer labeled "SCIENCE" is crashing through a glass window that represents evolution. Implicit in the image is a promise totally unfulfilled by the contents of this book - that 'science' (as mangled and misused by the author) somehow refutes evolution!

Cynically intended to separate uncritical creationists from their money and the actual facts, this aggressively mediocre publication is typeset in a large 'Weekly Reader' font and format that keeps your fingers constantly busy flipping from page to page. Which is appropriate since "Refuting Evolution" is essentially content-free.

If Jonathan Sarfati has any honest cards to play in the seemingly endless game of whack-a-mole that scientists are forced to play with Young Earth Creationists (YECs for short), he should write them up and submit them for peer review in a credible scientific journal. He won't because science is hard work and Sarfati can make an easy living by taking unfounded pot shots at evolution.

The threads of error woven into Sarfati's tapestry of nonsense are numerous and perverse. Here are a few highlights:

Sarfati postulates that a lack of helium escaping from the atmosphere of the earth supports its 'youth.' He deliberately ignores the evidence NASA, and many others, have accumulated on helium escape that deflates this lighter-than-air YEC balloon.

He also trots out the discredited canard about ocean salinity supporting a young earth interpretation. Unfortunately this creationist gambit conveniently omits well known mechanisms, such as basaltic lava quenching, that removes sodium from the ocean.
