Item description for Evolution: The Grand Experiment: The Quest for an Answer (Evolution The Grand Experiment #1) by Carl Werner & Debbie Werner...
Overview Letting evidence speak for itself. Evolution has been dogma for so long, now many people consider it a foregone conclusion that life arose by random processes. Evolution: The Grand Experiment takes the unusual step of bringing together scientists on both sides of this cultural divide to present their findings. The reader is allowed to make up his or her mind as to which view is supported by the evidence.
Intended for a general audience, the book is comprehensive, easy to read, and the conclusions are startling.
Publishers Description "A BOOK THAT CHALLENGES YOUR VIEWS AND DEMANDS A VERDICT."
If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. -Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species
Darwin's book on evolution admitted that "intermediate links" were "perhaps the most obvious and serious objection to the theory" of evolution. Darwin recognized that the fossils collected by scientists prior to 1859 did not correspond with his theory of evolution, but he predicted that his theory would be confirmed as more and more fossils were found. One hundred and fifty years later, Evolution: The Grand Experiment critically examines the viability of Darwin's theory.

Finally - scientific FACTS to debunk all the lies being presented to students Mar 7, 2010
Visually and intellectually stimulating, Evolution: The Grand Experiment is sure to delight readers of all ages. My 13-year-old daughter grabbed this book off the counter as soon as I brought it home and stayed up all night reading it. I would have started reading it the next day except that my 11-year-old son then scurried away with it. They both said it was one of the best books they've ever read and I agree! The author does not simply state that evolution is a theory in crisis. He systematically presents the THEORY of evolution and debunks each point with current scientific proofs, including astoundingly beautiful photographs that mesh perfectly with the text.
Evolution: The Grand Experiment should be required reading for every late elementary science student. Society has done a wonderful idea of squashing any true investigation of the false beliefs of evolution because many school environments don't even allow students to question whether or not evolution is true. There is no such thing as testing scientific hypothesis anymore. Now students are told to accept it as fact without testing and proving the theory, which is actually contrary to scientific theory itself. Whether you believe in evolution or intelligent design, this book will answer many of your questions and leave you with concrete answers instead!
I can't recommend this book highly enough. If I had the money, I would seriously purchase a copy for everyone I know.

Questionable science Mar 4, 2010
To take only one example, Werner debunks the idea of dinosaurs with feathers as imaginary, an artifact dreamed up by evolutionists keen to prove that birds evolved from reptiles. Unfortunately for Werner, evidence continues to accumulate that at least some dinosaurs did have feathers:
The realization that dinosaurs are closely related to birds raised the obvious possibility of feathered dinosaurs. Fossils of Archaeopteryx include well-preserved feathers, but it was not until the early 1990s that clearly nonavian dinosaur fossils were discovered with preserved feathers. Today there are more than twenty genera of dinosaurs with fossil feathers, nearly all of which are theropods. Most are from the Yixian formation in China. The fossil feathers of one specimen, Shuvuuia deserti, have even tested positive for beta-keratin, the main protein in bird feathers, in immunological tests. ^ a b Schweitzer, Mary Higby, Watt, J.A., Avci, R., Knapp, L., Chiappe, L, Norell, Mark A., Marshall, M. (1999). "Beta-Keratin Specific Immunological reactivity in Feather-like structures of the Cretaceous Alvarezsaurid, Shuvuuia deserti Journal of Experimental Zoology Part B (Mol Dev Evol) 285:146-157
Werner is after all, not a biologist or a paleontologist, so gross errors in someone well outside his field of expertise should surprise no one. He is a committed creationist, not a scientist, and it shows.
Statements in the bible should not be construed as correct science. For example, the bible states that the earth is immobile: Psalm 93.1 The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. NIV
Ps 104.5 He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.

Fossil Discoveries Revealed Feb 1, 2010
A brief review: This publication reveals aspects of evolution that are not generally known, esp. the total quantity of fossils found world wide and more specifically the number found in subcategories such as bats, turtles, etc. What this book does reveal is that all evolutionists specializing in these subcategories, such as bat evolution, are all still in the process of pursuit for the "missing links". After 150 years of Darwinian evolution we remain in the employ of these link searches. In my opinion, one has to concede after all this time and 200 million fossil finds later (total number of fossil discoveries at this date world wide in all the museums and educational institutions) that these so-called "missing links" existing in the lineage of various biota may not in fact exist.
The author presents the evidence (or lack of it) to let the reader determine his own opinion concerning evolution. There is no offering of alternate theories, just that evolutionary theory appears to be lacking the critical evidence we expect of valid scientific theories.
If you find this book to your liking, I suggest that you also purchase part 2 to complete this revealing discovery that is difficult to acquire anywhere else.
The usual 'Christian' disinformation Nov 15, 2009
Werner, whose acolytes boast of his supposed 30 years of "study" of evolution, churns out ignorant nonsense like this:
"If jawless fish are the evolutionary predecessors of other fish, one would expect them to be extinct, according to the idea of survival of the fittest."
That one sentence tells me that Werner either never bothered to actually learn anything about evolution during his 3 decades of study, or is actively involved in spreadinng disinformation about it, for 'survival of the fittest' would indicate no such thing.
What is worse is the fact that this book is targetted at people who will not know any better, and will swallow his nonsense without question. Such is the world of creationist 'scholarship.'
Beautiful and Compelling Oct 19, 2009
Carl Werner started out attempting to find proof for the theory of evolution. The author is medical doctor and he was fully convinced of the evolutionary belief system. But he started to have doubts when he searched out in the field (see the numerous startling pictures he supplies)and dug deep into books on geology, Darwinism, and the diversity of living things. He wondered if the grand evolutionary story is fallacious. "Surely with over 200 million fossils in museum collections around the world, it will be easy to prove that evolution is true," Carl pondered. Nonetheless after visiting 60 museums in numerous nations in tens years he became skeptical of macro-evolution. And he tells this story in the words and the amazing pictures provided in this superb book.
Additionally I would insist that macro-evolution (evolutionary advancement from a single-celled organism to John Milton) is not just an "amazing story," but a fable to supply a grand myth for non-believers. The theory of evolution provides mystery and produces religious-like declarations among the popular atheist fundamentalists (Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens). This is a wonderful book to display in your living room and a great teaching tool.
