Refuting Evolution by Jonathan Sarfati, Part V

[Other parts of the review] No book by a creationist would be complete without an obligatory reference to Michael Denton's infamous book, Evolution, a Theory in Crisis: Michael Denton points out that 97.7 percent of living orders of land vertebrates… more »

Refuting Evolution by Jonathan Sarfati, Part IV

[Other parts of the review] Sarfati spends quite some time on transitional fossils. It is in fact one of the main rallying cries of creationism that there are no transitional fossils. It is not difficult to see why this would be a sticking point with… more »

Refuting Evolution by Jonathan Sarfati, Part III

[Other parts of the review] We continue on with "Contrasting the Models". Now, he starts off with a reasonable diagram of the evolutionary picture as a "tree", though he can't help but interject that the common ancestor "itself evolved from non-living… more »

Refuting Evolution by Jonathan Sarfati, Part II

[Other parts of the review] "The Basis of Modern Science" aims initially to show that a whole pile of very useful scientists were creationists. The list is a little laughable in that many of the members listed predate even Darwin's birth, but… more »

Refuting Evolution by Jonathan Sarfati, Part I

[Other parts of the review] I picked up this book at a charity book sale for the SPCA out in Cochrane. It is morbidly fascinating to see books that purport to take down an entire scientific edifice. I took a pencil with me when I first started reading… more »

The Great Theft : Khaled Abou El Fadl

The tagline for the book, "Wrestling Islam from the Extremists", caught my eye, as did a quick flip through the book. We don't tend to hear a lot from moderate Muslims in the public square here, so there are a lot of questions that run through our… more »

The Counter-Creationism Handbook : Mark Isaak

I was moved to pick this up when I saw a book-signing in the front of the bookstore I was walking into, and got close enough to realize they were peddling mystical garbage. I ended up in the science section just to shake off the willies from such close… more »

Testament : Akedah

DC's Vertigo line is a pretty reliable source of intriguing, dark, mythology-based graphic novels. Douglas Rushkoff and Liam Sharp's Testament is no exception. The approach is intriguing. The landscape is a 'twenty minutes into the future' type take,… more »

The God Delusion : Richard Dawkins

I think it's a sign of the times that the number of books professing frustration with religion are on the rise. In Dawkin's case, the times are ripe for a book like this. As an evolutionary theory promoter, he has witnessed galling inroads of attempts… more »

Misquoting Jesus : Bart D. Ehrman

The subtitle on this book: "The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why". This is an extremely interesting book, all about the changes, intentional or otherwise, that occurred in the New Testament and in the source materials for the New Testament,… more »
