Reviews - What do customers think about Uncovering the Mysterious Woolly Mammoth?
Garbage for children Mar 26, 2010
I came across this book in a seach for books about wooly mammoths. My kids love the idea that these huge creatures once lived where we do now. I was shocked when I read the description of this book! Someone has merged a story in the bible with natural history? If this were a novel for adults, it would be one thing. But this is meant to be an educational book for children. Do people really want their children to believe this stuff?
Excwllentn creationist book Apr 9, 2009
This is a great book for young earth creationists. The evolutionists have tons of books for children to promote their faith. There are many fewer for those of us who belive in the literal interpretation of the Bible. So don't begrudge a good book that promotes our views. If you choose to put your faith in evolution then just skip this book. Those of us who put our faith in God will be glad to have another book to help us teach our children.
Confusing the kids Apr 2, 2009
Disguised as "adventure story science", this book tortures both Holy Writ and science in a desperate attempt to force them to agree.
Even the Catholic church has realised that this approach is a dead end and, after centuries in denial, has accepted both Galileo and Darwin. If the author had only added that the mammoths fell off the edge of a flat Earth, the joke would be complete.
The real outrage of this travesty is that it is clearly aimed at children, who may not have the judgement or experience to see through the pseudo-science. Of all of the developed countries, this kind of rubbish only seems to be common in America. Hopefully, the new President will put some money into improving the education system.
Not only do these kind of books confuse kids about science, they do no favours for religion either, as the deep symbolism and moral metaphor are lost in the simple-minded attempt to prove a literal truth in what was only ever meant to be taken symbolically.
Creationist Publishing Nov 20, 2008
If you find the so-called Creationist view of the cosmos, you might like this book. If you find science and Darwin and the theory of evolution valid and rational and to the point, I would recommend you look elsewhere. This is not science. What it is an odd mish-mash of the Bible and science and pseudo-science. Rather like a prominent public figure saying she believes dinosaurs were around some three thousand years ago, this book has the science and facts flowing from the Bible, rather than letting the scientific method present us with facts and evidence. Take your pic.
