Here are some quotations from the book:
"Dr. Gish pointed out that it has been estimated, for example, that the Karoo Formation of South Africa alone contains 800 billion vertebrate fossils. He asserted that the available fossil record has become almost unmanageably rich, the only lack being the predicted transitional forms." (Pg. 4)
"(Dr. E.O. Wiley) also rejected the entropy argument, claiming that entropy had no relation to complexity, so that a world of increasing entropy had no bearing on whether organisms were increasing in complexity." (Pg. 14)
"If the primitive earth atmosphere contained a significant quantity of oxygen, however, an evolutionary origin of life would have been thermodynamically impossible, since all substances would have been oxidized to carbon dioxide, water, nitrogen, and other oxidized products, leaving no organic chemical compounds to serve as precursors for biochemical evolution." (Pg. 139)
"Proteins and DNA and RNA do not form naturally and spontaneously, but if they do exist, they spontaneously disintegrate. How then could they ever have formed on the hypothetical primitive earth by natural processes?" (Pg. 148)
"Skeptics have claimed that the (Glen Rose) prints are carvings, not real prints at all. Unfortunately, this charge has some basis; in fact, some enterprising Texans from Glen Rose did make their living during the Great Depression by digging out the best tracks and selling them." (Pg. 197)
"The creation record in Genesis indicates that man and dinosaur did indeed live together... Dinosaurs evidently survived the Flood, either on board Noah's Ark or somehow surviving outside... The main problem of geological interpretation for Biblical catastrophists ... is how could man and dinosaur witness such massive deposition at the beginning stages of the Flood and survive long enough to leave their prints so high up in the geological column? ... It is not at all inconceivable that a few hardy souls, both man and beast, could have survived for many days in the uplift area as the Flood waters relentless advanced. To surmise how they got to the Glen Rose area would not be best, but ... it is possible that by following the ridge or on rafts they made the journey, looking for safety." (Pg. 201-203)
"Unfortunately, when examined by photographic experts, the object in question turned out not to be the Ark. It was many times too large and not at all in the area under consideration as the possible resting place of the Ark." (Pg. 284)
