Darwin's On the Origin of the Species was originally released in 1859, and by 1872, the sixth and last edition was published, becoming the defining text for evolutionists. This controversial work has become the foundation of modern textbooks for scientific studies in origins, though Darwin himself expressed deep doubts about his own speculations and suppositions.
Secrets of the Sixth Editionby Randall Hedtke exposes the critical flaws of this landmark book by using Darwin's own words against him.
- Provides an examination of Darwin's research and the faulty basis of his scientific writings
- Filled with extensive documentation looking at the fatal flaws in Darwin's assumptions
- Addresses strategies for possible changes to curriculum to address weaknesses in the evolutionary hypothesis.
Take an insightful look at Darwin's work and its inaccuracies from a fresh and logical perspective. You will discover the often ignored reasoning behind his own abandonment of some of the core mechanisms of evolution later in his life, though they remain unchallenged pillars of unquestioning science today. This informative and easy-to-read study boldly declares the powerful truth that only biblical creation can explain.
Randall Hedtke has read, written, and taught about the controversy of creation-evolution for decades. The basis for much of the Secrets of the Sixth Edition were originally formed in a series of essays originally published in the Creation Research Society Quarterly.
Who is Randall Hedtke? With a Master's Degree in curriculum and instruction, Hedtke is a retired biology teacher who continues his work in research and lecturing about evolution from the Christian worldview. The contents of The Secrets of the Sixth Edition come directly from essays written for the prestigious (or infamous, depending on which side of the evolutionary fence you stand) Creation Research Society Quarterly. Hedtke has debated evolution vs. creation many times and on his website refers to the persecution this has garnered. A science scholar, teacher, and researcher, Hedtke knows his subject well, capably passing his information on to those of us who need it explained in understandable terms. Quoting from the National Education Association, Hedtke points out the basic education right to have "access to varying points of view" (p. 8). He has gone a long way towards this with his vocation and with this book, The Secrets of the Sixth Edition. An interesting sidelight about this book: it was chosen as one of the books to donate to clergy during this year's National Clergy Appreciation Month. Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
