To create this book, many Christian scientists (of various disciplines) from around the world were asked "Why do you believe in a literal six-day biblical creation as the origin of life on earth?" The fifty best responses ultimately were included.
Sadly, this format makes "In Six Days" less than useful - on any level. The answers provided resemble testimonies rather than useful scientific analyses. Respondents tended to repeat each other, answer too generally, or (conversely) too technically on a single point. Further compounding the problems of the book, the great majority of the scientists refer to points outside their own discipline. If I were looking for serious answers to important questions about a six-day creation, would I want to read a mechanical engineer's musings on organic chemistry? Probably not. This book would be infinitely more helpful if the question had been posed as "What are five discoveries within your field of expertise that point specifically to a six-day creation?" But as phrased here, the original question automatically leads to unfocused answers.
In truth, only about twenty of the respondents provide compelling arguments.Read more ›
As regards Religion and Origins, I think a fundamental error is made when secular scientists attempt to pontificate about religion, as if science has anything to say about it, and when religious experts attempt to pontificate on science using the Bible as source. God did not direct the writers of the Bible to educate future readers about science or engineering. For a less controversial example, where did the Israelites get the weapons of war that they used in battles with the Canaanites after 40 years in the desert? They had very few weapons indeed when they left Egypt. That is a very interesting question, and modern researchers have some interesting answers, but the Bible does not concern itself about such matters because they have no bearing on the spiritual message of the Bible.Read more ›
I'm sure it is poorly written and mostly devoid of any scientific information whatsoever.
I took the book off my shelf, blew the dust off the top and read it.
I was wrong.
It is a well written book by 50 scientists who believe in a literal 6 day creation.
The goal of the book is to state why these scientists, a few were aggressive evolutionists, changed their point of view or found creation to be a more reasonable explanation to our existence.
My opinion is that the negative reviews have more to do with damage control than an open mind inquiring on the facts but that's what I would do if I still believed in evolution.
The book's biodiversity essay was quite good. We all know from documentaries what happens if you subtract even just one animal from an ecosystem:
-the plants that were fertilized by that animal would die,
- the predators that ate that animal would die, and that predator's other prey would thrive and decimate their food sources and die off,
-the plants that were eaten by the animal run wild and overgrow other plants so that those would also die,
-then the animals that ate THAT plant would then die, ad nauseum.
So that said, how did the first species survive after crawling out of the ooze? What did it eat, and where did its food in turn, get ITS food? The writer continued on to raise further issues in that essay.Read more ›
