This lucid work by Dr. Rushdoony examines the faulty premises and messianic objectives of modern science. In the midst of this study, Rushdoony discusses the real basis and the real nature of the evolutionary myth, and the urges that have driven its philosophical development as well as its integration into Christian philosophy and theology.

Recommends it for: Anyone who thinks evolution is a science or wishes to silence those who do.

Read ages ago . Very good.
