DR. HENRY M. MORRIS (1918-2006) (B.S. Rice University; M.S., Ph.D. University of Minnesota) is widely recognized as the founder of the modern creation science movement. For many years he was the president of the Institute for Creation Research, San Diego, California. Dr. Morris wrote extensively on creation science and evolution, producing definitive works such as "Some Call It Science, Biblical Creationism, Science and the Bible Scientific Creationism," and "The Biblical Basis for Modern Science." In 1963, Dr. Morris and nine other creationists founded the Creation Research Society. At the age of 87 and after a full life devoted to the defense of the gospel, Dr. Morris entered into the joy of the Lord in 2006.
Reviews - What do customers think about Many Infallible Proofs: Evidences for the Christian Faith?
"MOST COMPREHENSIVE" !! Mar 9, 2003
29 years after it original release this work is still at the "TOP" among "CHRISTIAN EVIDENCE" works, primarily because of it comprehensiveness. It's only short coming, as a prior reviewer mentions, more documentation could have been used (in some cases) in the chapter on fulfilled prophecy. However even here more than enough evidence (at least 7 Historic Prophecys, plus the Messianics) are presented to prove the Authors point. "Mazzaroth" or the constellations (in the Bk of Job), the "GOSPEL IN THE STARS" which is primoral revelation was handled well. It's almost impossible to find someone who knows &"Understands" this Primative truth who doesn't accept it ! Also exceptional in the field of Apologetics "EVIDENCE THAT DEMANDS A VERDICT" and Grant Jeffrey's "SIGNATURE OF GOD"... here the advanced medical information presented is "Astonishing". Jeffrey's is excellent for "Apologetics", but should be avoided in "Eschatology"......
Great reference leading to deeper study. Dec 9, 2002
Mr. Morris has jump started me many times with this wonderfully referenced work. It's a great book to return to when seeking fact based information on the infallibilty of the Bible. It covers many areas such as prophecy and fulfillment including examples and statistical data, history, astronomy, geology and many other topics. It also contains some good data that clashes with mainline evolution. It clearly is not intended to be in-depth on each topic but is an easy read with an index and references for deeper study in many of the topics.
Other books that deliver mounds of factual evidence showing the absurdity of standard evolutionary beliefs include In Six Days, written by 50 well-accredited scientists (many who are reknowned), Starlight and Time, Search for the Truth, In the Beginning, and Darwin's Black Box.
Many Fallible Errors Jul 25, 2002
This is unfortunately one of the worst apologetics books on the market. I loose more respect for Morris with each publication like this I come across! What is wrong with this book? ALOT. I can't expose every single error in his reasoning but I can highlight several errors just to drive my point home. Where do we start? Well, let's start with the slightly bad and save the worst for last.
The first blunder is on the reliability of the Old Testament. Morris uses the biblographical test to support the OT's reliability. Okay..nothing wrong with that. But Morris also uses a appeal to authority. One of the authorities? Christ himself! Question-begging, unfortunately, and constructing a circular argument! It only goes downhill from here. Morris has a chapter on biblical prophecy. He goes on to list the course of empires and other civilizations that were subject to biblical prophecy. But Morris doesn't describe in exact details how these prophcies were fulfilled. Morris doesn't give the dating of the prophecies, the dates and places of the fulfillments! How are critical/skeptical readers interested in Christianity suppose to verify the fulfillments!?
Morris also blows it when it comes supposed scientific case for creation. He doesn't try to explain away the traditional case for evolution ( homology, vestigial organs, nested heirachy, fossil record) but instead relies on a bogus argument about the alleged law of biogenesis( kind begats kind that was supposedly demonstrated by Louis Pastuer). He also argues that mutations are extremely rare and harmful and also another argument about the interconnected-ness of genes and characters and implies that mutations cannot cause evolution without some form of saltational change through the whole genome of the organism!
The worst chapter was on the "Fact of God". Here Morris employs a "First Cause" argument that originated with Aristotle and popularized by Thomas Aquanis. Morris argues that the first cause of life must be living and the first cause of love must be loving, etc. There are MANY flaws in this argument. Morris assumes that there is a direct causation (and not a chain of causation).Example: the first cause of life must be living. To argue this is begging the question that there was a first cause for life to begin with and not a chain of causation like a series of chemical reactions to form the first life form over time such as a cell.
Morris also assumes that each effect has the nature of the first cause ( first cause of love must be living) but what if we consider the first cause of the opposites? Is the First Cause of life also the first Cause of death? Does this mean that the First Cause is both living and dead? Is the First Cause of love also the first cause of hate? Why not? Morris also seems to assume that all these first causes are the same identitical identity. But why conclude that? Why do we have to conclude monotheism and not multiple first Causes? And what about the First Cause of unlimited space? How can we infer omnipresence from this? ( Not to mention that it begs the question that space is infinite..especially when we lack a quantum theory of gravity.)
This is just a tip of the iceberg in terms of faulty logic and questionable conclusions. In short, I think the EPA should sue Morris for wasting so much paper in the form of books like this! I would not recommend this book even as to help hold a coffee table up!
Morris should have stopped writing books long ago Jun 19, 2002
I think that Henry Morris genuinely desires to serve God and will go to Heaven when he dies. Unfortunately, Morris feels compelled to write about things he really doesn't understand, and as a result he's done more damage to Christianity than almost anyone else presently living. Morris started his career as a "creation scientist" arguing that the Earth is really 6,000 years old. He then went on to merge Fundamentalist Christianity with astrology (his "Gospel in the Stars") and numerology, and embraced the idea that the King James Bible isn't just a translation, but a divinely-inspired revelation that overrides what the prophets and apostles actually wrote. I'd stay away from Henry Morris' "proofs" of the Bible. If you want to read real apologetics by a knowledgeable Christian, try "The Case for Christ" and "The Case for Faith" by Lee Strobel, anything by C.S. Lewis, and check out "Intelligent Design" writers like Phillip Johnson and Hugh Ross if you have a burning interest in the conflict between evolutionary biology and the Bible. Morris may have good intentions, but more often than not, they pave the road to hell....
Morris is the intellectual fountainhead of preachers like Peter Ruckman, G.A. Riplinger, David Cloud, Jack Chick, and others who distort the Gospel and merge it with cult and even occult ideas. Don't give his stuff to impressionable minds.
Great information, but a bit dry Nov 30, 2001
There is so much information in this book that you will walk away with a head full of Christian proofs and Creationist arguments against evolution. In the earlier chapters, we (we used it for last year's Bible study - yes, we took the whole year!) found holes in some of his arguments and hypotheses, but these were pretty much inconsequential and irrelevant to the overall purpose of the book. The origins and reasons for Creation sections are very well thought out and believable. The "anti-evolution" sections offer great data that anyone could use in a Creation .vs. accident/Evolution discussion. There may be a few items and arguments left out, but it is a great resourse that you will reference many times.
And, the chapters at the end on numerology and (I forget the other...) - they're presented strictly as interesting tidbits, and are separated from the rest of the book as appendices.
I recommend the book. It can get dry at times, but, then again, are you reading it to be entertained or educated? If the former, buy Strobell's "Case for Christ", which is also very good, but lacks the scientific nature and in depth analysis of Creation found in Infallible Proofs. If the latter, get it and soak it all in!
