Reviews - What do customers think about Biology 2E: Search For Order In Complexity (Misc Homeschool)?
Not what I thought Feb 23, 2010
Old 1977 text, outdated. This was not what was pictured or described. This is no good to me and was a useless purchase. Please learn by my lesson and ensure you are purchasing exactly what is pictured:-(
Christian propaganda Feb 4, 2010
I was looking for a science book not a bible.... This book has way to many unscientific things thrown in just to be godly. For example when talking about how we have made cures for things the line "God created men with the capacity to reason and to do scientific research" had to be thrown in to explain why we found the cures. Other things are stupid too like how they say "success in arriving at correct conclusions unmixed with error requires a disciplined mind guided by gods work". I would highly recommend a book that doesn't have the author putting his personal beliefs in at every possible opportunity and that just has real unbiased facts.
A biology text is no place for the evolution vs creation argument May 27, 2009
I bought this book to review some basic biology and to catch up on new discoveries over the last 30 years brought to the attention of high school readers. I didn't check the publisher beforehand, and only realized it was a Christian publishing house after the purchase. Then, I wanted to see how this text would deal with biology from a Christian perspective. I found it irritating.
It presents the basics of biology as other biology texts I've read, but it sprinkles too often the evolution vs creation argument within it. Albeit the argument is sprinkled, the text is clearly trying to position the Christian viewpoint of creationism by repeatedly stating certain evolutionary ideas are not provable with the scientific method, and the fossil record does not support the particular specific examples it cites.
I find it absurd, even hypocritical, that a faith-based system would try to debunk an evolutionary biology hypothesis as unprovable by the scientific method. This book would have done its intended audience a greater service by attempting to prove their viewpoints with facts, rather than try to debunk with rhetoric. I would have enjoyed, even been challenged by such facts, but none are presented. I've given it 2 stars for the basic biology it does present.

This science book is a very attractive book with a lot of helpful pictures, drawings and charts. There is a lot of vocabulary in the text, yet it is written in a very user friendly manner. I would recommend this textbook to others.
