I got this book from a student being homeschooled. Once again Ken "The Scam Man" Ham has pulled off an enormous fraud on gullible Christians. The only question that remains is does The Scam Man really believe this nonsense or is he just laughing all the way to the bank. And what about the poor kids that are being forced fed with this stuff at home. How will they ever learn critical thinking skills.

All of the authors of the essays in this collection love to use the letters "Dr." before their nam

Evolution is a fact. It happens. The theory of evolution explains how it happens.

This book is filled with misinformation, distortions and outright lies.

It's not a science book, it's a work of fiction. It's the author's and audience's delusion. It's not an attempt at the truth, but to distort it to protect their fairy tales.
I already reviewed the first edition (which was excellent), but this version has the added bonus of containing updated material, new chapters not found in the earlier editions, and hugely improved cover art. If you don't believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, then this book will probably drive you crazy, but it definitely does a great job of showing how science aligns with the Bible so much more than most people suspect.

Complete garbage meant to protect a world view that is so silly even a child sees through it as you can tell be the questions they ask.

This is a good book and I found it very informative. Most of the information is easy to understand and made me think about the origins of the world in a way that I had not thought about much before.

As a product of the public schools, I was raised to think that evolution was fact instead of just the THEORY that it is. I think students need to be taught that evolution is a theory and be shown that there are other valid theories out there, too. We need to remember that there is a difference betwee

This book is aimed at Christians who accept the historicity of the Bible, and wish to understand how modern cosmology, geology, and biology can support a biblical worldview. Not all the chapters deal directly with creation or evolution; some are about biblical historicity, theological implications, and proper translation of Hebrew texts. I don’t think it would be convincing to non-Christians; even though it sometimes uses logical and scientific arguments, it’s full of Bible verses and relies hea ...more
I want my time back however I would recommend this book to all gullible and Stupid people out there.If you hate your kids and/or you hate yourself this can be a book that is an "Essential catalyst of blissful Ignorance".
who would even consider such an absurd ...yeah I'm done spending time on this.

Review title: Facts, filters, and worldviews

Answers in Genesis is an organization dedicated to support and search for scientific evidence in support of the Biblical Genesis account of

creation in a literal six days
A "young earth" 6 to 10 thousand years old
a catastrophic global flood
creation of species with natural selection driving only evolution within kind, not generating new species

Ken Ham is the editor for this collection, the first of three, of questions and answers about creation, evolu

In this book, I was hoping to see the "young-earth creationist" (YEC) view of each topic brought up. However, The authors decided to prove that evolution has many holes in it and that YE creationists have discovered other ways to explain science rather than evolution.
I have several problems with the theology and understanding of the Bible in this book, but I won't mention them here.
I found the book not to be written boringly, however, some of the chapters were disorganized, which sometimes lead
Feb 21, 2014 Stephen rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This detailed book by Ken Ham offers in-depth discussions and answers to many tough and common questions that even the most faithful Christian will ask.

Through this book Christians will be able to see for themselves that the Word of God, the Bible, is completely accurate in its teachings and be assured of their faith
This was a good book on the basic evidence for pro-young earth creationism. Since I am more acquainted with an old earth perspective it was good to hear the other side.

Poignant Quotes

…everything that has a beginning requires a cause. The universe has a beginning and therefore requires a cause. But God has no beginning since He is beyond time. So God does not need a cause. There is nothing illogical about an eternal Being who has always existed even though it might be difficult to fully understan

This is one of the 3 Answers in Genesis "Answers" books that help people to understand the real answers behind life's biggest questions. All from a biblical perspective. Wonder where dinosaurs fit in? Evolution? Is there a Heaven/Hell? Look no futher than this 1st book in the series. If you are a Christian, this book helps you with Apologetics, and a way to defend your faith and answer questions from a biblical perspective. If you are not a Christian, if you keep an open mind while reading this, ...more

I appreciated the scientific information provided to support the authors' views, especially when sources were provided so that I could look them up. They point out some valid flaws in current scientific theories, but sometimes an author will take a more extreme interpretation of a modern scientific theory than is the common view or focus on miniscule issues in a theory. Information was generally presented logically, although one might not agree with their starting assumptions. Many of the author ...more

The Principia of Blasphemy. The worst fiction book I've ever read in 20 years.
Mar 06, 2012 L8blmr rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
I found much of this book, that offers alternatives to evolution and old earth theories, fascinating. Some of it I felt was "glossed over" to add credence to the author's beliefs without being more than his own interpretation of the Bible.

Everyone is, of course, entitled to their own opinion and I have found that one can debate much more intelligently if armed with as much information as possible on BOTH sides of an issue. This book contains a lot of ammunition.
Pick up at Chapter 13.

Loved it. Even if you don't agree with all Mr. Ham's viewpoints, he presents some very interesting arguments and backs up much of what he says with research. Darwin's "change of kinds" evolution is NOT a proven fact so it is a shame alternate viewpoints are taught in school these days. Highly recommended for non-believers and believers alike.

We really like this book and the New Answer Book 2 by Ken Ham. Amazing refutation of evolution and million-years age theories. Some answers are incredibly technical and may cause your brain to explode. Some answers seem to require a degree in physics. But there are plenty of other answers for the rest of us to go around.

Good book that answers such as Why Shouldn't Christians Accept Millions of Years, Hasn't Evolution been proven true, Does radiometric dating prove the earth is old, Doesn't carbon dating disprove the Bible, Don't creationist deny the laws of nature, was there really a Noah's Ark and Flood, etc.
Apr 09, 2014 Abigail rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This book was ok. It is good for a starting point for answering some of the tough questions, but because it is geared toward those who need a simple explanation I do not believe it goes far enough. It does however give a good list of strong sources that I will have to start checking out.
Feb 25, 2008 Crystal rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Clear, concise, scientific answers to questions about dinosaurs, the flood, ice age, and more. Any good scientist ("a person learned in science and especially natural science : a scientific investigator") should read this... if they truly are an "investigator" of science that is.

A worthwhile read, this collection of essays did answer the many questions used to challenge creationism. However, it also made me realize that evolutionists probably won't be swayed or converted by mere argument. It's a faith choice either way.

Most of the "information" in this book is misinformation. Ken Ham distorts, misquotes and outright lies. Look up his sources and read them for yourself.

Not really the sort of book you want to read cover to cover, it get's rather repetitive after a while, especially if you've ever heard Ken Ham speak.

A good 4.5. Explores questions concerning creation, evolution, and the Bible. Good for children or the common lay person.

An excellent book that answers many of the questions that you may be asking in the creation versus evolution debate.
