Reviews - What do customers think about Design and Origin of Birds?
bible bashing contempt for science & some pretty pictures Mar 8, 2006
Where to start! Firstly it is more than obvious that the author of this book is an artist of high caliber & that his knowledge of modern birds in immense. However the pretty pictures are a ruse as the meat of this book is the author's belief in the bible as the undisputed word of a god & his belief in biblical creationism. Anyone who has had the misfortune of reading a creationist book will know what to expect. Once again the author bombards the reader with the same old creationist range of pseudo -science from nonsense about Ernst Haeckel's embryo diagrams to entropy & of course the obligatory out of context quotes. The author relishes in the building up of the usual creationist straw man version of evolution, which the author can then cast down in a seemingly scientific way. If you are a bird lover should you buy this book? Well unless you like pretty bird pictures mixed in with creationist pseudo-scientific nonsense, out of context quotations from notable scientists, bible quotations & an utter contempt for the process of scientific investigation the answer in a big no. There are many better published bird books available from this site & other bookshops which are wholly about birds & not a stealth attempt to delude the reader with creationist, bible-bashing nonsense. If however you are infantile enough to already be a creationist then you already know every nonsensical argument printed in this book as gospel. So all you get is pretty pictures! So even creationists should save their money & avoid. Maybe they could use the money saved to buy a proper book on evolution instead & grow up! 1 star for pretty pictures only.
