Fascinating! Yet somehow I'm left with more questions than answers.

It isn't a take-down of Darwinian evolution, but then it doesn't intend or pretend to be. Rather, it is simply a critical look at some of the most well-known examples that are given as evidence for evolution. It makes the excellent point that though these examples have been known to be incorrect or at the least inconclusive for quite a number of years, they continue to be placed into textbooks and taught to students. Some are still thought to be accurate by virtually everyone outside of very specific fields of biology. An interesting read, however, the book's format and layout left much to be desired. Illustrations and their captions were handled in a most clumsy and confusing way. Several times I had to flip back and forth across pages to figure out which text was to accompany the illustration and which was the actual narrative of the book. On the whole, worth reading if one is interested specific points in the debate over evolution, but not if one is looking for broad handling of the debate as a whole.… (mer)

I’ve always been a bit skeptical of evolution. Call it a religious upbringing and continued belief in what the book of Genesis tells us or just a healthy questioning of science, but evolution has always seemed a bit inconsistent with me. I also tend to question things when I’m told not to question it like strict evolutionists will tell you (as well as Al Gore and his global warming crowd). That makes me question it even more.

This book, while not proof of the falsehood of evolution, does take what the evolutionists take as truth and show us how it is misleading and at times flat out false in the light of new evidence, but unfortunately these untruths are still being taught in our schools to our children in the name of science, but what has really become the “religion” of evolution.

Anyway, sorry I went up on my soapbox for a moment. This book can be a dry read if you’re not interested in the subject matter and even if you are, it can be a dry read. Took me some time to work through this one, but there is really some good and interesting information here. Will this change your mind about evolution one way or the other? Not likely, but if you come into this one with an open mind, which seems to be lacking at times on both sides of this debate, you may come away with a new appreciation of the issue.

What I liked best about this book is that it provides a different, scientific, look at evolution. Too often the public is steam-rolled into believing there is only one viewpoint with no room for debate. Certainly there is so much room in science for continuing discovery.
