"Berlinski knows his science and wields his rapier deftly. He makes great sport with his opponents, and his readers will surely enjoy it."
--Tom Bethell, bestselling author of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science
"A powerful riposte to atheist mockery and cocksure science, and to the sort of philosophy that surrenders to them. David Berlinski proceeds reasonably and calmly to challenge recent scientific theorizing and to expose the unreason from which it presumes to criticize religion."
--Harvey Mansfield, Professor of Government, Harvard University
"Berlinski's book is everything desirable: it is idiomatic, profound, brilliantly polemical, amusing, and of course vastly learned. I congratulate him."
--William F. Buckley Jr.
"With high style and light-hearted disdain, David Berlinski deflates the intellectual pretensions of the scientific atheist crowd. Maybe they can recite the Periodic Table by heart, but the secular Berlinski shows that this doesn't get them very far in reasoning about much weightier matters."
--Michael J. Behe, Professor of Biological Sciences, Lehigh University, bestselling author of "Darwin's Black Box "and "The Edge of Evolution"
"David Berlinski plus any topic equals an extraordinary book."
"From the Hardcover edition."

While Berlinski brings scripture into his discussion, he does it from a layman's point of view. There is obviously more depth and understanding to the Bible than that which comes from a casual reading, or as it may be the case even for most "Christians," what they hear they are supposed to believe.
You simply do not try to shake the ivory towers of theology—be it the deeply entrenched “orthodoxy” of the Christian church, or that of the “First Church of Darwin.” If you are a Christian, you are expected to tow the line. Try to make waves, and you will suffer the consequences from its leaders and devoted adherents. Likewise, Berlinski, being an Atheist, does not buy into the explanations of his peers and he calls them out. The negative reviews of this book make that point clearly.
