5.0 out of 5 stars A Christian Praising Futuyma, January 5, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Science on Trial: The Case for Evolution (Paperback)
An excellent work written by a highly-respected and credentialed research biologist. As such, Futuyma easily dismantles and exposes all kinds of special creationist misinformation, misrepresentation and rhetoric as it is most typically presented by religious non-scientists. And, as I have discovered via polling a prominent Christian apologetics programs, most special creationists do not even know this work exists. And for good reason. They rightly fear it. That is, since fundamentalists, by definition, cannot think for themselves. Still, this work is user-friendly for all, while remaining professionally-written and amazingly comprehensive in content throughout. Thus, Futuyma's book is very appropriate for those Christians (and other religionists) who actually desire and seek truth on the issue of biological evolution--as it is objectively/scientifically analyzed and tested. In this vein, a very excellent and scholarly companion or option is "Finding Darwin's God," by Christian research biologist (and theistic evolutionist) Kenneth Miller.
