In a complex universe where so little is understood, such arrogance is folly.
Just like the witch trials of old, professors/faculty who disagree with the pseudoscience of Darwinism are censured and even fired because they are theists or at least serious thinkers.
So much for freedom of speech, huh? And so much for the concept of higher learning. It just goes to show that sin is real, liars still exist, dictators still exist on American soil..and they call themselves scientists, brites(brights), whatever.
Authors of this mans caliber I applaud and support as he is a real thinker and is will to take on doing real homework to disclose his viewpoint while the Darwinists he challenges are showing themselves to be, yet again, lazy, rhetoric blowing liars because it takes real effort to discuss truth. It takes NO work, no real thinking, no effort to hold oneself accountable to tell partial lies and just spin nonsense.
Accountable? That requires adhering to moral principles that Christianity promote and as we know, most Darwinists are atheists because THEY WANT TO BE GOD and say what is and is not evil. Crush others who disagree with them and coerce all to accept their dogmas. Mmmmm Saddam Hussain tactics perpetrated on USA soil in institutions of higher learning. How poetic.
By admission, the author is not a scientist. Although possessing a good grasp of scientific terminology and language, Phillip Johnson never seeks to portray himself as an expert in biological processes. Therefore, rather than scrutinize the minutia of every part of evolutionary theory, a broader look is taken at the language in which it is wrapped and presented. Much like testimony in a courtroom, the bold proclamations of naturalism are
picked apart for any inconsistencies and logical fallacies. As the book progresses chapter by chapter, the reader is shown the presuppositions that must be readily embraced for evolution to be placed beyond question. Far from being a subject beyond the realm of question and inquiry, the conclusion is reached that critics have a basis for their complaints. Scientists tend to espouse dogma rather than answer true and troubling questions concerning their theory, and this is the reason such widespread doubt continues within the world.
The book largely succeeds in its goal of opening discussion on a topic still steeped in controversy. Although proponents of evolution (both theistic and atheistic) largely dismiss any question as out of bounds, true cracks exist in the theory and should be explored. If truth is the goal then doubts should lead to either a reinforcement of evolution or a deconstruction of it. On the other side, those who hold to a Biblical view of creation should not be frightened of studying evolution for it is impossible to debate things which are not first understood. Believers in Jesus Christ have no reason to be afraid of standing for the word of God, but a conversation is only possible when both speakers know the subject matter at hand. For twenty years this little work has spawned discussions, debates, and a digging for the truth. In that regard, the book is a resounding success.
