Product Description

For a century the reigning scientific view has been that God is not necessary to account for the existence of the world and of life. Evolutionary theory is said to be all that is needed to explain how we got here. In addition, many theistic evolutionists contend that God likely used many of the mechanisms of evolution to achieve his will. In this book J.P. Moreland and a panel of scholars assert that there is actually substantial evidence pointing in a different direction. First, they consider philosophical arguments about whether it is possible for us to know if an intelligent designer had a hand in creation. They then look directly at four different areas of science: the origin of life, the origin of major groups of organisms, the origin of human language, and the origin and formation of the universe. Experts on this panel were: Stephen Meyer, William Dembski, Hugh Ross, Walter Bradley, Charles Thaxton, Kurt Wise, John Oller, John Omdahl, John Ankerberg, and John Weldon.

Publisher's Description

Is there evidence from natural science for an intelligent creator of the universe? For a century the reigning scientific view has been that God is not necessary to account for the existence of the world and of life. Evolutionary theory is said to be all that is needed to explain how we got here. In addition, many theistic evolutionists contend that God likely used many of the mechanisms of evolution to achieve his will. In this book J. P. Moreland and a panel of scholars assert that there is actually substantial evidence pointing in a different direction. First, they consider philosophical arguments about whether it is possible for us to know if an intelligent designer had a hand in creation. Then they look directly at four different areas of science: the origin of life, the origin of major groups of organisms, the origin of human language and the origin and formation of the universe. The team of experts for this work includes a philosopher, a mathematician, a physicist, a linguist, a theologian, a biophysicist, an astronomer, a chemist and a paleontologist. Their data and their conclusions challenge the assumptions of many and offer the foundation for a new paradigm of scientific thinking.

    Willam Lane Craig made a statement at one time that you never convince an evolutionist of his fallacy if he isn't open to reasonable hypothesis. I have read this book once and am reading this book again. If your going to be a critic Stephen based on the critque of the dogmatic naturalist, your the one with a closed mind. JP Moreland, and the article contributors to this volme are well qualified, and experienced in both observation, philosophy, and sound reasonable logic. If your going to read this book with an already closed naturalistic point of view don't bother. If your ready to read it with a teachable mind, your getting a point of view that is logical, easliy understood with thought on your part, and a good understanding of what creation is and what it is not. Evolution is not a fact it is the dogmatic stance of God haters.

    In response to Stephen from Pasadena, Yes, "Experts" indeed. Many, such as Stephen use the typical irrational, emotional attacks against Design Theorists. The scientists in this book have the credentials to give any open-minded, non-obscurantist a very thought provoking study. This book is a great addition to other well-respected scientist/authors such as; Polkinghorne, A.E. Wilder Smith, Henry F. Schaefer III... After studying this book, you will conclude that the possibility of the universe coming about by pure chance from nothing, or that living matter can spring from dead inorganic material, would be an incredible leap of wishful thinking. The FAITH of the atheist would be exposed.

    "Experts" indeed. That is, none to be found in this work (as is the case in virtually all "creationist" literature): No credentialed, respected scientists whatever in dealing with issues of paleontology, biological evolution or anything else covered for that matter. Just lots of mis-information in regards to scientific method, inquiry, and data (as well as necessary conclusions in terms of Christian theology!). Hence, it is this kind of "information" that fortifies Moreland's assumptions when he himself critiques evolutionary theory contra "creationism." However, if one enjoys old arguments of this nature rehashed and restated perhaps this work will not disappoint.
