Reviews - What do customers think about Life in the Great Ice Age?
bad Science sadly masquerading as history May 9, 2006
I often find that anytime I read a review, in which someone with a 'beef' about the construct of Intelligent Design (i.e., God, and the creation ex nihilo mentioned in Scripture) merely lambasts the author (and/or the readers!) and ridicules those considering such a book, for even 'considering' the book under question, without saying WHY, irks me no end! With such reviews, I 'turn off,' and file that reviewer with the 'cranks and kooks.' Sad to say, I have had to drastically revise my opinion of such reviewers, when looking at this book by Oard, as well as the other book by Duane Gish, often paired with this child's story of the pre-historic eras.
While the premise for the ICR and other 'creation science' endeavors were a necessary counterpoint to the rabid atheistic evolutionists in the 'dark ages' of the late 1960's and early 1970's (when the ICR joined up with Tim LaHaye's Christian Heritage College in El Cajon, CA. while I was a student at SDSU)over the last forty years, advances in both science, anthropology, DNA research and a whole host of other fields now clearly show that the worldview put forth by the author(s) of this book, as well as the whole ICR/'Scientific Creationist' view, are now as myopic and tortured an eisogesis of (reading 'into') Scripture, as the flat-earth people used to do, when dealing with heliocentrism, by pointing to the Scripture that says 'the earth shall never be moved,' when we all know (after Apollo, Neil Armstrong, and the moon walks) that the Earth DOES move, after all! ("Eppure si muovo," said Galileo)
This book purports to make us believe that the Adamic man (i.e., Homo Sapiens- and, from the drawings used to depict such in this book,very European Homo Sapiens Sapiens!) were living simultaneously with the Neanderthals, a feat that is both physiologically impossible, as well as highly unlikely- in that other Creationists, (not tied to a procrustean bed of six days of 'exactly 24 hours each' for the entire fossil history of man prior to Noah) allow for millenniae for fossils to form, for pre-human hominids to appear, flourish, and then die, before Homo Sapiens even appeared on the scene! (I speak of the very good work done by the Reasons to Believe organization, as devout a group of Christian/Bible-believing people grappling with true science as well as true faith, in seeking to have the 'mind of God' on these matters). Not only did the two groups not even live at the same time, even IF we allow for their existence simultaneously,( A BIG IF!) the bestial Neanderthals and the rational creatures that could be called Homo Sapiens would NEVER have gotten along in the 'let's all be friends, even though we are different' mentality portrayed in Oard's book, that is as mired in the sophomoric rhetoric of the 1960's hippie culture, as it is ideologically unscientific, knowing how primitive cultures operate on those outside of the 'in group'!!!
If you are looking (as I was) for a book for your children to read, in which the post-lapsarian Adamic culture came to the forefront of history, before the rise of the ancient Near East cultures (Egyptian, Sumerian, Babylonian) I would suggest at least another viable alternative- one that is more 'fiction' than 'science,' but speaks better 'truth' thereby; Jan Brett has written a charming book about Early Man, and his domestication of the dog, (The First Dog) which conveys much the same 'feel' as this book tries to do, without all the false theology, pesudo-science, and sectarian dogmatism this book pushes; grounded as it is, not in faith in God, in true presentation of the facts that we DO know of early Man; but in fear, and a blindness, that 'seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not hear.' Pass on this book, I beg of you- it is as sorry a 'textbook' apology for Christian worldview, science, reverence for Scripture, or honest portrayal of the world after Adam's transgression, as as I have ever seen. In that it is written for impressionable minds of chilren, such a book is no more or less a 'millstone' around these babe's minds, that will only cause them to lose their faith when they are older, when they have to confront what truths real science can show them- and by that, I mean not the evolutionary worldview of a skewed Darwinism, but the true science that the ICR crowd clearly hates and actively opposes (read "A Matter of Days" for more info on this sorry fighting in-house)..
A Refreshingly-New Way of Thinking About Ice-Age Man Jun 7, 2001
Mike Oard is a scholar who has done much geologic field work. Having done field work with him, I can testify to the fact that he pays careful attention to detail, and is very skillful in separating fact from interpretation. In this work he goes outside the mental boxes of conventional uniformitarian geology, and shows the consequences, upon humans, of a single Ice Age.
Credible history of early man Oct 16, 2000
A fine speculative but scholarly tale of Japethites as they spread accross Europe and face the ice age. Deals with anthropology from a truly Biblical perspective. Appendix is more advanced, dealing with the climatology and geology of the ONE ice age. Great book for the Christian home.
A study of prehistoric man through modern science. Oct 29, 1999
A study of prehistoric man from the creationist perspective. Explaining life in the prehistoric time with scientific evidence, not just from Biblical stories-although it does include Biblical events (tower of Babel) and attributes creation to the creator, God (the God of Moses). Explains where the evolutionary ideas came from and their flaws on a scientific and rational level. Story and illustration are designed for kids up to the 6th or 8th grade level. (although it's great for adults to!)
