Reviews - What do customers think about Geology Book w/Study Guide?

Call it...theology...please.  Sep 12, 2007
The reviewer herein tagged as "a reviewer" is quite correct in his/her assessment of this book. I was looking for a basic geology science book, and since I have known the Morris family, I thought I would find an objective science book. Wrong. This book is targeted to children.

What I find remarkable is the comment by another reviewer, a "Brown," who makes the following remarkable observation in favor of the book: "Also, to the reviewer that commented that this book belongs in the "religious section," if that were the case, then any book trying to present the case for evolution would belong there as well. In order for anything to be accepted as scientific fact, one criterea is that it has to be observable. Anything beyond that is restricted to the area of theory and (yes, even for an evolutionist) faith."

Now, if what this reviewer says is true, then Dr. Morris, take note. In fact, pp. 73-75 (chapter 8) describes "the future earth", according to the Bible, of course, but then within the context of a dispensational, pre-millennial theological context (theology is not science). If what Brown (above) says is correct, that true science must fall within the realm of the 'observable' (which I would agree), then we have a real problem with Dr. Morris' book as he jumps from the observable, within the limits of the Bible (which is apriori assumption) to the purely spectulative in chapter 8, which is purely deductive reasoning.

Sadly, this book and most of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) is essentially what I call a "Tinker Tank" (not Think Tank) for creationist theology, and not a genuine think-tank for real creation science. These folks spend their time antagonizing low-level evolutionists into "debates" which they edit to favor their worldview, and little, if any, core time in the field or laboratory. Here again, Philip Johnson, Michael Behe, et al., make the scientific case for creation within a more unblemished scientific context. You may wish to wet your appetite with the excellent DVD, "The Privileged Planet." I wish I could give more than one star to this book. I truly wish that these folks would enter the scientific arena without theological assumptions, and provide honest research, as others have, and not stand on the shoulders of theology. Writing about science does not science make.
Good Book  Apr 5, 2006
For openers, I'd like to add to the previous review as a Baptist by saying that we also still believe in the young earth view.

Also, to the reviewer that commented that this book belongs in the "religious section," if that were the case, then any book trying to present the case for evolution would belong there as well. In order for anything to be accepted as scientific fact, one criterea is that it has to be observable. Anything beyond that is restricted to the area of theory and (yes, even for an evolutionist) faith.

Now, onto the book itself.
The illustrations were indeed excellent, and the content was well written. It would probably go over the head of a first grader (unless the first grader can read words like "radioisotope" and is at least familiar with the periodic table of elements.) The book reads like a textbook, and isn't one I would picture a kid reading just for fun, unless he or she is deeply interested in geology, (but if they are, they'll get alot out of this book.) I'd recommend it as a homeschool textbook, or for a school library.
writing it doesn't make it true  Mar 5, 2006
To the 1-star reviewer on July 15th,
I am a member of the Presbyterian Church of America. So very sorry to dissapoint you but we do indeed embrace a young earth view.
Great book!  Feb 22, 2006
This is a great resource for elementary science with full color photographs and interesting text. Fortunately it is not hysterical like the opposition below. The creationists usually stick to reasoned arguments while the others rave and call names. You can disagree and argue, but do so in a gentlemanly manner. The author of this book is a trained and practicing geologist.
Lots of creationists are not fundamentalists, and many are scientists who researched their way right out of old earth thinking, independently of Henry Morris and ICR. Right or wrong, they are independent thinkers, of which we need more. If so many people disagree with ICR then why do their books sell more than Hugh Ross'? The church and many scientists disagreed with Galileo and Copernicus, but who was right? They were creationists, by the way, and Isaac Newton was an ardent 'young earth' creationist who did lots of historical research as well as physics.
Since when do church leaders get to decide on scientific questions anyway? Let the scientists fight it out like they should. All the arguments evolutionists use to 'debunk' creationists have been debunked right back in the literature. It's not like creationists are afraid to argue since they hold debates and answer critics regularly. Read and make up your own mind!
Geology basics  Nov 18, 2005
This book is wonderfully written and helps the reader to assertaine the facts regarding science and the assumptions made regarding the facts. Example: Fact: the earth is made of miles and miles of sediments deposit. Assumption 1:these formed over millions of years of gradual sediment deposit. Assumption 2: these formed rapidly during a worldwide flood. This book helps the reader see that in regard to the evolution/creation conflict, the facts themselves are neutral and are only interpreted based on previously held beliefs. This book also helps readers see that there are many scientists with PHD's in all fields who do not believe in the religion of evolution.
