Excellent book.It helped me to realise that God did just what His written Word said He did in Genesis.I like to read articles that tell us how big the Universe is anyway.You learn facts like this for example:like how long would it take ...with our current technology and with enough engines etc. just to get to the first star, not our own sun but the star called Proxima Centauri , the star that is roughly 4.3 light-years away.They estimate that it would take 150,000 years to get there.150,000 yea ...more

OMGSH!!!!!!! This book was so amazing, I loved it to death, I plan to read it over and over again. You just can't believe how many scientist don't believe in creation. Everything is right there it should be a duh. It was unbelievable!

Read this in 2013 to preview for a skeptic friend. First few chapters are pretty interesting; after that, the reasoning starts to repeat and it gets a bit dull. To me, what's important about this book is not its content but its very existence. Many skeptics believe that biblical creation is an irrational school of thought, the sole province of illiterate fundamentalist fanatics. When you hand them a book in which 50 scientists assert otherwise, that might occasion a bit of rethinking - maybe eno ...more

Just like the title says. Some scientists here have written their responses specifically for this book, others are obviously taken from other articles. Either way, the weight of evidence and logic weighs throughout to show the requirement for design, intelligent design, creative power and design beyond human comprehension.

The cumulative impact is impressive.

When I wrote my review, among the suggested tags were "bad science" and "creationist crap." Some reviewers apparently struggled in applying

The scientists chosen to write essays on this topic do an excellent job of presenting evidence for Biblical creation and pointing out obvious holes in the Darwinian theory of evolution. The only down-side to this book is the fact that many of the writers cite similar facts, so once you have read half the book you are re-reading much of the same information. Still a great resource!

Very good. If nothing else, it makes you think about creationism vs. evolution.

One of the best cases for creationism I have yet read
Sep 09, 2009 Molly rated it really liked it
The reason I found this collection of essays interesting is that the writers not only believe in intelligent design, but in a six-day creation. The essays are by scientists who have found, in their own work or the others' research, evidence of creation. Specific examples range from agricultural evidence and biology to astronomy and physics. More philosophical evidence is also given. I found this book very comforting, as Christianity is commonly accused of being anti-science.

This was a very thought provoking book. It successfully shows that not all scientists view the concept of creation as incorrect nor wholly believe evolution. The scientists’ faith is visible, especially in putting their names to a publication which could diminish their standing with the wider public. However, as a non-scientist, the arguments presented were at times too technical for me and I was not in a position to accurately verify their beliefs.

Recommends it for: everyone - believers and non-believers alike
Recommended to Jessica by: me
I loved this book. Some essays were better than others and it is clear that not every author was writing for the exact same purpose, but each essay had something important to say. I learned a ton about faith and science and I feel that this book as helped me to deepen my faith in a way that no other book, sermon, etc. has before.

Great! Repeatedly through out the book was the testimony of many men who once held to belief in evolution that eventually crumbled under the weight of the evidence. So much for young earth creationism only being the belief of those "wacky fundamentalists" who do not know anything about "science".
Jun 02, 2012 Grace rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Had to really concentrate and read one chapter at a time; All 50 scientists who contributed to this book, through faith and scientific fact came to the conclusion that God's Word is true and everthing had its origin not so very long ago, in the beginning, in 6 days
