why people reject Darwinism Aug 12, 2008
A common assumption is that people reject Darwinism due to religion and this is true in many cases. In many other cases, though, they reject evolutionism due to a study of the scientific evidence. This book includes the stories of some of these persons. One can not help but note the reasons for rejecting Darwinism are many and varied. Included in this book are many of the most well known American creationists, including Drs Henry Morris and Duane Gish. For this reason this book is critically important in understanding the history of the movement as well as the personalities of the founders. Some cases in this book involved persons converted from atheism, others were always Christians but theistic evolutionists, such as Henry Morris, who became persuaded by the evidence, not religion, to reject evolutionism. Others were always creationists and were persuaded by the evidence to remain committed to this worldview position. Not a technical book but a set of human interest biographies, it was an enjoyable read that allows one to understand why the authors made the decisions covered in each chapter.
Follow the money? Not. Aug 10, 2008
Most people follow the money. In the area of origins science the money is definitely on the side of evolutionary research. There is no government organization or major corporation that supports creation research that I know of. Yet, in this book we have stories of people who chose not to follow the money. Instead they followed the evidence where it led them: to belief in God's creation of the earth recently in six days, the fall of the original pair of humans into sin, the judgment of the earth by a worldwide flood, and God's subsequent actions to bring people back to belief in Him. This path does not lead to money and fame but it leads to Truth. This book tells the amazing true-life stories of talented people who, despite the loss of money and possible fame, chose to follow Truth.
Convinced by the facts! Aug 10, 2008
Persuaded by the Evidence is a one of a kind collection of true stories by real people and how the evidence convinced each of them to a worldview of a six-day creation! I know. I was one of them! My story is a simple one, but one that is very real all the same. I was confronted with what I believed to be scientific arguments for evolution as I was growing up, by two older brothers who were really quite smarter than I. At that point in time, I really wasn't sure how to answer their various questions regarding evolution. I gradually began learning the answers to those questions from places most would not perhaps be aware of. The origin of life has never been emperically demonstrated, and the facts of science are totally in favor of creation. I have found that those who believe otherwise to be irrational in their thinking process in one form or another and in most cases to accomodate their behavior and not be held accountable for their actions. You will find an interesting bunch of characters in the pages of this book and one I hope will bring you closer to looking at the world around us and comtemplate why things are the way they are. My two older brothers encouraged me to read some good evolution books and I did. I have read many evolution books through the years. I include very briefly in my story, the evidences that persuaded me to believe in creation and the evidences that convinced me of a six-day creation and a worldwide flood. I thank my two older brothers for sending me on this journey which has shaped who I am, my faith, and how all of this has changed my life. A special thanks to Henry. I never met him, but he was my mentor.
