Harvard professor Stephen J. Gould, on CNN's Crossfire in November of 1999, said no legitimate scientist in the world believes the Genesis account of creation. So the question was posed, Would any educated, self-respecting scientist with a PhD advocate a literal interpretation of the six days of creation? Its hard enough to find a theologian who adheres to such a credo. Mo ...more

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!
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!
One of the best cases for creationism I have yet read
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".
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
It’s a great resource, with plenty of references to additional reading!
