The book is well written and easy to understand and apply.
Matthew Linkletter
It gives you a rudimentary understanding of logic that will equip you to face the worse skeptics out there and show them their worldview as opposed to yours.
laura merrone
The Ultimate Proof of Creation is a book that is really about defending Christianity at its most fundamental level, the worldview proposed by the Bible.

My pastor gave me a copy to frame our old vs young earth discussions, and I'm glad that he did. Dr. Lisle's book deserves to be read, primarily because it should make you think. It made me think.

The proof:

(1) If biblical creation were not true, we could not know anything. (2) We can know things (3) Therefore, biblical creation is true.

Belief in biblical creation is the source of knowledge?!?!?! (read: Belief in Literal Biblical Genesis 7 days of creation)

Piffle: GOD is the source of knowledge, not his act of creation. Knowledge existed before creation. The book should rightly be called "The Ultimate proof of God".

Let me rephrase:
(1) If God didn't exist, we could not know anything. (2) We can know things (3) Therefore, God exists.

This reformulation is more in line with the information science theorems he put forth (though I quibble with those - add a comment if you'd like to know why)

I appreciate the attempt of the book to make a certain perspective as "the only rational view", because I understand and respect the twinges of the slippery slope argument. I simply disagree with it.

So, am I splitting hairs with respect to the literal interpretation of Genesis, since God created? No. Why? The Astrophysicist in me cannot ignore

1. The Copernican Revolution
2. The distances to the stars.

Both provide a rational basis for questioning a literal interpretation of Genesis. Is it proof? No. Could I be wrong? Of course.

I think the book falls short, but makes some interesting points. That's my review, but keep reading if you'd like to read my musings on the Copernican Revolution and the distances to stars.

This shows how you as a Christian can argue for Creation. It gives you a rudimentary understanding of logic that will equip you to face the worse skeptics out there and show them their worldview as opposed to yours. I wish I had read something like this 30 years ago so that whenever an atheist "bullied" me I could show them the ultimate proof of creation. I recommend this to all who have to deal with a person or group that views the Bible as just another book and not the Word of God especially when it comes to science and origins. You could show them that they have a worldview influencing them just like we Christians have a worldview influencing us.

When arguing for the veracity of the Bible, many Christians appeal to “universal” logic. It is as if the Christian sets aside his relationship with God and invites the unbeliever into the court room where they critique the Christian and secular worldviews. The worldview that passes their analysis is then accepted as the truth. Is this the Biblical—and logical—approach to apologetics? In his book The Ultimate Proof of Creation, Dr. Jason Lisle, PhD astronomer and research director at ICR argues, no.

In fact, Dr. Lisle argues, any approach that does not begin with the Author of logic contradicts itself in arguing with a method whose origin it cannot explain. Only the Biblical worldview can explain the existence of logic, human morality, and uniformity of nature while being internally consistent. Since an intelligent, personal God created the world and revealed himself to man; man can argue rationally, have a moral compass, and expect nature to be consistent enough for science. The empiricist (who states that all things must be proved to be known) disproves his own theory since he must assume the laws of logic in order to prove anything. The evolutionist has no explanation for logic, morality, or uniformity of nature in his worldview. Unbelievers thus either arbitrarily assume these three foundation stones or they inconsistently borrow them from the Christian worldview.

Evidence is always interpreted according to one’s worldview. Therefore, an evidence-first apologetic approach is not only ineffective (as each worldview uses rescue devices to explain evidence that appears inconsistent with it), it is also reflective on a secular, empirical worldview. Marshalling logical reasoning and Biblical examples, Dr.

I'm an intellectual, and I don't accept something simply because a teacher, professor, or someone else with a degree tells me it is so. I grew up in church, knew the Christian side of things, and chose to reject that faith as a young adult. Now I have lived both sides of the fence.

That being said, I found this book intriguing. Some reviewers say that this book has terribly flawed reasoning. Au contraire. To my chagrin, I found the exact opposite to be true. After reading this book, I played devil's advocate with some of my friends, taking the author's side for the moment, trying to get feedback from my peers. We were all pretty vicious about it, because I didn't like this book's arguments any more than they did. As an intellectual and all-around deep thinker with a knack for arguing, I'm pretty skilled at supporting whatever it is I wish to support. But while using his basis for logic and reasoning, my friends could not maintain a logically consistent rebuttal to any of the points made. They could make rebuttals, but there was always one frustratingly persistent flaw or inconsistency in the rebuttals we came up with.

The only way we could rebut any of the arguments was if we moved his arguments away from his foundation, at which point we could easily strike them down, just like others attempt to do in their reviews here. But when we moved his arguments away from his foundation, we essentially set up a straw man, rather than fighting his real argument as-is. We simply had a semblance of his real argument, divorced from his foundation, which was then silly and easy to refute. But defeating a straw man is really no victory at all, and we weren't satisfied. Some people are happy to beat up a straw man and think they have victory, but I'm not that vain.
