Item description for Truth Be Told: Exposing the Myth of Evolution by Kyle Butt & Eric Lyons...
Overview Truth Be Told is a compilation and refutation of the most commonly taught evolutionary ideas. It was written and designed to prepare and equip students to deal with false evolutionary assumptions that often make their way into many science books used in schools. This book will excite, encourage, and inform students who want to know the truth. In the end, that truth leads the honest student to the fact that this magnificent universe did not evolve, but rather was created by an all-powerful God.

A must read Nov 3, 2008
I have taught both evolution (micro/macro) as well as creation science. This book in its format is concise and easy to read. I like the chapter review questions. Excellent teaching tool.
Wonderful, logical,scientific book,disproving evolution. Oct 12, 2008
This is a great book and easy to follow and to understand. It is important to realize that not all scientists believe the evolutionary theory, though this is not widely published. The theory of evolution has many holes in it and is based on many assumptions. Like any good scientist or student we should ask questions instead of accepting statements at face value. This book offers explanations and knowledge of proven facts, using science to restrain science from lapsing into fantasy; or should I say,"from evolving into fiction"?
Awesome book! Sep 2, 2007
This book is right on for exposing Evolution for what it is...a Myth. Anyone who would give this book only one star is probably an evolutionist who doesn't want to be reminded that there is a God. Evolutionist need to hold on to a god-less theory and don't want to see their theory debunked.
This book is great! It is written for kids (4th grade-middle school). I bought this book for my daughters and also read it myself from cover to cover and learned a great deal from it. My children are in public school where Evolution is taught as fact. This book is a great reference for students. My daughters will often come home from school and look up what they were taught regarding evolution (ie. Ice Age, Cave Men, Dinosaurs etc.)in their Truth Be Told book. I wish every child could own this book to learn about all the loop holes in the theory of evolution that they aren't going to tell you about in the media or public school.
I actually came back to this website to order two more of the books and read the bad review listed. There was a reason the reviewer's nephews (in the previous review) were reading this book...because it contains the truth and their parents must have known that. He (the reviewer) most likey became upset when he saw them reading this book because he doesn't have a relationship with the creator of this earth.
Yes, if I were an evolutionist and wanted to pretend God didn't exist, I too, would be angry and give this book one star but, as someone who believes that God created this world and everything in it, I give it five stars. We need more books like this to counteract the myths being fed to us and our children.
You've got to be kidding? Jun 17, 2007
I first ran across this book when I was at my brother's house. I was shocked to find that my nephews were reading this book. For fundamentalist Christians who believe the Biblical stories, naturally, the overwhelming evidence of science is causing much embarrassment. Books like this one are designed to tell Christians what they want to believe.
This book is meant to be a "science" textbook at the grade school level. There are even questions at the end of each chapter to reinforce the "correct" thinking. While I liked the illustrations, I had to give this the book the lowest possible rating because the reader will end up being more confused, and knowing less, than when he/she started. It angers me that children are being deliberately exposed to this dribble. The only good use for the book is for students of critical thinking to try to find the lies, distortions, deletions, generalizations, bad science, bad logic, and propaganda techniques throughout the book. Even then, it would only be useful for beginning students, because the problems are all too obvious.
The authors are promoting Young Earth Creationism, which is basically that the earth is about 6000 years old, and the simple answer to any science question is: "God did it". The book also promotes the myth of Noah's global flood. Most Young Earth Creationists depend on the flood to explain away geological problems like erosion, fossils, sediment layers, and continental drift. For YEC's there is also the problem of the dinosaurs: Dinosaurs obviously existed at one time, and the Bible says that two of every kind of animal went on the ark, so therefore, dinosaurs must have been on the ark also. And not only did dinosaurs survive the flood and live 4500 years ago. People even tamed them (there are illustrations in the book showing dinosaurs pulling carts).
So after the flood (within the last 4500 years), the book purports: 1) Most of the dinosaurs were hunted down and killed (although they claim that there may still be a few around). 2) 250 million years of continental drift and mountain forming happened right after the flood, so that the continents got to where they are today (but then the drifting suddenly slowed to a snails pace). 3) The last ice age (and all the ice ages) advanced and retreated. 4) All of the millions of species that we have today evolved from the relatively few "kinds" of animals that could fit in the ark. This also includes all the species that have since become extinct (like "birds with teeth"). 5) All of the fossils that we find today were from animals buried in the flood. 6) All of the coal in the world was formed after the flood
For a "science" book, the amount of bad science and bad logic is staggering. Some highlights: 1) They say that matter cannot be created or destroyed, even though they mention in a later chapter that the sun converts 8 million tons of matter to energy every second (I don't think they found that in the Bible). By the way, I don't know where they got 8M tons per second, it's about double the usual estimates. 2) They say that there is no proof of evolution - but "drug resistant bacteria" is only one example of many. 3) They are 50 years behind in their knowledge of radiometric dating. 4) They say there are no examples of transitional forms of species - archeologists claim many (the "birds with teeth" are good examples) 5) They say that evolution is about changing from the simple to the complex - evolution is about no such thing. It is about a species changing to, or being replaced by, a better adapted species. 6) They point out that amino acids could not have formed in the early primordial soup (to form life), because oxygen in the air would have prevented it - but there wasn't any free oxygen in the air until long after plant life was already well established. 7) They claim all the Neanderthal skeletons were just people with arthritis. 8) Early hominoids were just apes - (who happened to walk upright?) 9) They speculate that if you turn on a garden hose and it erodes away a 1" deep channel of mud in one minute, in twenty minutes it will have eroded a channel 20" deep. 10) They state that the Milky Way Galaxy is 100,000 light years wide (from the Bible?), but don't they know that since it's only been 6000 years since God created the universe, that we still couldn't see to the center of our own galaxy yet? In fact there wouldn't have even been a single star visible for the first 4 years after creation.
There is also a large amount of propaganda techniques used. Some examples: 1) They claim that because science can't answer every question, it's bad. The authors can answer every question - God did it - so they are better. 2) There have been a number of science hoaxes, so science can never be trusted. 3) Science keeps changing its answers (like revising the estimates of the age of the earth), so science isn't reliable. 4) Science contradicts the Bible, so it's wrong (and bad).
Anyway, I could go on and on, but you get the idea. My own thinking is that people can, and do, lie to themselves all the time, but we should not cripple children with books like this.
