Evolutionary Bias May Be More Dangerous!
December 3, 2013
There are several interesting topics covered; however, the parts on fossils and dinosaurs are basically a lesson on macro evolution, for which there is NO evidence. It recounts the idea that everything is millions and billions of years old, that things began in a primitive form and evolved to other advanced forms, that dinosaurs evolved over several periods, eventually dying out as a result of a meteor strike in the Gulf of Mexico or evolving into birds (yet it admits that these "dinosaur birds" were actually like bats, which are not birds at all).
A great resource to view if you are unsure on this topic is the brief, but powerful, film "Evolution vs. God" by Ray Comfort, which interviews modern-day evolutionist apologists and university professors to show that macro evolution is truly a belief system with no scientific evidence to support it.
When I consider what is most dangerous to my children, it is the idea of teaching them to believe the lie that they are simply the result of chance, evolving from pond scum, living with no eternal purpose and no ultimate accountability, and thus no need for God. I kept the book, because my son had fallen in love with the title, but I did use up my white-out pen erasing the pervasive lies of evolution throughout those chapters.
Additionally, the final list at the back of the book, "Books Every Boy Should Read," includes books that are not from a Christian or God-honoring perspective. Some recommended authors include The Harry Potter series by Rowling and Stephen King's books, among others.
