How a little book can have such an impact... just by analyzing the overwhelming evidence of how the facts of creation is validated by the fossile register, how the different evolutive theories got to be taken as facts, and other amazing revelations no one tells you about at school.
A real mouth closer, this one.

1. The earth free-floats in space, affected only by gravity. While other sources declared the earth sat on the back of an elephant or turtle, or was held up by Atlas, the Bible alone states what we now know to be true.

Job 26:7: He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

2. The earth is an orb or sphere. At a time when many thought the earth was flat, the Bible told us that the earth is spherical.

Isaiah 40:22: It is He that sitt

This book is filled with scientific errors. Even worse, it takes quotes from many scientists out of context and even quotes people who are not scientists while implying they are. I actually contacted some of the scientists quoted via the internet about this because I found it hard to believe, but it was true. Several in-depth reviews of the book exist on the internet, one of which is extremely detailed and points out the inaccuracies line by line.

I'm actually quite surprised this book is on here considering its a book ued by Jehovah's Witnesses in the kingdom hall. It's obvious people who do not understand or respect the religion will have alot of negative thing to say but this book being posted here is almost like posting the bible on here.... I personally LOVE this book. But the fact that this book is on this site and is being judged by people other than Jehovah's Witnesses upsets me.

A most amazing collection of misquotes, stupidity, and outright lies. I suppose it was easy to confuse people with this stuff in 1985 when this was written. JWs have never been allowed higher education or to think critically. Before the internet was available it was out of our reach to verify the ridiculous claims in this book.

The ""scientist"" Francis Hitching is quoted 15 times in this book as proof that there is dissent within the scientific community regarding the factualness of evolution. L

Aug 04, 2015 Travis rated it it was ok
I find these little books both fascinating and deeply sad.
There is a huge effort here to give the appearance of deep scientific research, but it's only here to back up an already chosen result : 'God did it.'
It's an elaborate pretense that a hypothesis is being tested and serious research was done.

At no time will the book actually apply all this science to question that idea, only to re-enforce it.
The book picks at every detail it can find to debunk evolution, but none of that effort is put into

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. I read this book during my christian period. I can simply conclude that this book is very bad. Listing everything that is wrong with it would take for ever. Therefore I better point at the few things that I liked about this book.

Unlike most other American militant creationists, this book doesn't claim that the Earth and Universe is only 6000 years old. It doesn't present fake artifacts, like dinosaur wall drawings or traces of leaves of T. rex teet

I started re-reading this book a few weeks ago. I figured that most, if not all, of the scientific information would be slightly out-of-date. Some of it is, but some of it still puzzles people today. The debate over evolution or creation will probably not go away anytime soon, and this book is a good introduction to the concept of creation. Note: I am not discussing intelligent design or creationism, but rather biblical creation. References to the scriptures are included in each chapter, and the ...more

Terribly inaccurate information about even the very fundamentals of biological evolution. Everyone that gave this book 5 stars, shame on you and your ability to reason. No thinking person could take this book seriously.

0.5/5 - I will admit I skim read the last quarter of the book and skipped the chapter titled 'The Bible - Can We Trust It?' I was really looking forward to an argumentative text but it was just extremely bias.

A ta książka nawet przyćmiła poprzednią przeze mnie przeczytaną. To znaczy głównie nadal zachwycam się tym jak opisano ogrom wszechświata, ale też inne ciekawe rzeczy. To bardzo ciekawa książka głównie przez te takie małe ciekawostki o życiu roślin i zwierząt. I muszę przyznać, że rzeczywiście dała do myślenia. Że teoria ewolucji jest w istocie tylko teorią, to nie jest jakaś oczywista prawda i ma masę dziur. No tak, tak jest i ja się z tym zgadzam, oraz nawet jej zwolennicy się z tym zgadzają, ...more
