Item description for War of the Worldviews: Powerful Answers for an "Evolutionized' Culture by Ham Menton, Bodie Hodge & Gary Vaterlaus...

There are two competing worldviews in America today; one is based upon the infallibility of God's word, and the other upon a humanistic view of mankind. When we face the battles looming today, Christians need a rock solid foundation upon which to defend their faith; a foundation which evolutionary theory is destroying. How are we then to respond to the arguments for evolution? How do we explain to our children that what their schools and universities are teaching isn't always reliable? Within these pages, you'll find the answers you need to fight the good fight; evolutionary arguments are dissected and explained, Christian 'compromise' postitions elaborated upon, and a call for absolute biblical authority given.

Publishers Description
There is a war being fought in our culture--a war between two worldviews. One view is based on a biblical understanding of history, the other on pure naturalism. We witness the battles and skirmishes in our schools, our courts and our homes. All around us are casualties of the warfare taken captive by an evolutionary philosophy.

Reviews - What do customers think about War of the World Views?

Weird Worldview Declares War  Sep 6, 2006
What do aliens, dinosaurs and gay marriage have in common? Absolutely nothing at all - unless you're a member of the tinfoil-hat brigade on the lookout for black helicopters or SpongeBob SquarePants conspiracy theories and prefer a second Dark Age fueled by fundamentalist neo-medievalism to The Learning Channel.

The accidental comedians at Answers in Genesis (AiG) are back with a new book. All of the authors have signed a "Statement of Faith" that includes the following:

BASICS ARTICLE 3: "The account of origins presented in Genesis is a simple but factual presentation of actual events and therefore provides a reliable framework for scientific research into the question of the origin and history of life, mankind, the Earth and the universe."

GENERAL ARTICLE 6: "No apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record."

Practically speaking this means: "We are absolutely certain that our preferred creation myth holds the ultimate answers to the question of life, the universe, and everything."

On how firm a foundation, indeed...

This tract invents an idyllic past that never existed, claims that modern society is corrupt, and blames a gentle naturalist named Charles Darwin (religious fanatics, not scientists, fly airlines into buildings and behead hostages, all in the name of God and his infallible book). It moves on to misrepresent scientific origins of life research. Lowlights include a caricature of information theory and the misapplication of the 2nd law of thermodynamics, along with feeble attempts to refute experimental results. Sophistry is then employed in an attempt to prove that all mutations are bad and only result in a loss of information. The facts and science argue otherwise. Finally the creationist arguments of personal incredulity (I can't possibly imagine how that happened, therefore it didn't) and low self-esteem (I didn't evolve because that would make me an animal) are merged into a mindless mélange.

"Biblically correct" astronomy and cosmology are covered next. Ignore every passage describing the Earth as flat, immovable, and the center of the universe. Forget the whole solid firmament thing and that stars are small nearby objects that can literally fall to Earth - but yes, the Earth is only 6,500 years old (plus or minus a few obscure genealogies). Fictional chronologies and flood geologies only look ridiculous, even in the context of the other arguments presented in this book.

Sectarian squabbles take over with a self-righteous rebuke of "progressive creationists" who question the six day creation hallucination dogma that AiG vacuously parrots. At least the progressives attempt to consider science and reason. Intelligent Design (ID) undergoes an inquisition that attempts to answer the vexed question "Is the Intelligent Design Movement Christian?" The Kitzmiller v. Dover decision settled this question - the answer is yes. This book answers no. So much for the facts and legal precedent. The Auto de Fe carnival then considers whether or not creationists can be "real" scientists. The correct answer is no; creationists can't be real scientists because they explicitly reject the scientific method which is based on methodological naturalism. No supernatural causalities need apply. To get around this difficulty AiG redefines science to demand divine intervention. In this alternate reality only Christians can be "scientists."

Absurdity triumphs when gay marriage is blamed on evolution. AiG also blames evolution for Poodles (I am not making this up). This organization clearly has serious issues - none of which are addressed when a "proof of creation" based on supposedly "inerrant" presuppositions is offered. They place the creation of the universe 2,500 years after the Babylonians and Sumerians learned how to brew beer. This is seriously inebriated inerrancy.

The conclusion is a shallow apologetic for AiG's catechism, which also happens to be the conceptual framework for AiG's "Creation Museum" floor plan. This monument to folly features, among other silliness, a dinosaur restoration complete with a saddle.

If you want to experience instant-onset Alzheimer's read this book. Just remember to back up your mind first!
