Evolution is the darling of the secular scientific community. Indeed, many scientists who generally subscribe to Christian or other religious beliefs now cater to it. But is evolution really supportable?
Part 1 of this book shows evolution is based on the naturalist assumption; that is, in the educational community the only permissible explanation for observable natural phenomena is natural causes, not supernatural. However, this assumption is itself inconsistent with the ultimate scientific paradigm, the scientific method. In other words, observations, experiments, and established scientific laws are inconsistent with evolutionary theory, and instead consistent with an intelligent design explanation. Following that in Part 2 is a lively debate between the author and an agnostic on not only evolution but multiple other issues debated between Christians and those of agnostic or atheistic persuasions.
