It is generally assumed that evolution originated with Charles Darwin, the one-time-divinity-student-turned-naturalist atheist. That this assumption is false will shock and surprise many.

Considered to be a classic work, The Long War Against God by the late Dr. Henry Morris, long an opponent of Christian Compromise with evolution, presents in riveting detail the very old p

Morris had a nice idea, but sometimes he goes too far. This book tries to explain how throughout history, particularly that of evolution, there is a consistent hatred for God behind all the science. While this element by itself is true, he then sees the root problem as being evolution-and he even tries to implicate that it is was conceived under demonic influences and that the devil himself is an evolutionist! This last point would be impossible to prove, and it mistakes a branch for a root. Evo ...more

Evolution is not based on good science. It is not based upon that which is testable, repeatable, verifiable.

This book goes to the heart of the matter.
It deals with this is simply part of the long war against God. And that it is a false teaching and world view that can be traced back thousands of years.
See the fact that regarding the attacks on the truth, indeed there is nothing new under the sun.

If you question evolution this is the book you have been waiting for.
This is not an argument against evolution it is the history and devastation that it has left it its wake. The proof that evolution is not science but a religion (Pantheism - God is everything and everything is God, or "Go hug a tree today"), is written on the pages of this book.

"The Long War Against God" by Dr. Henry Morris is a “reference book” meant to be used to look up certain subjects and names of people for reference, instead of being read all the way through as I have. It's a classic for Creationists, very academic. It has two indexes, one for names of important people involved in evolution/creationism and one for subject matter and topics. It is essential for Creationists and Creationist Scientists everywhere, truly a classic and highly recommended for its in-d ...more

I agree with most of what he says, but not everything. For example, he goes on and on how important it is to take the Bible literally and recognize that God created the Earth in six days and rested on the SABBATH, the seventh day. He also mentions the pagan corruption of the Catholic church via Roman and Greek pagan beliefs etc. But he never specifically speaks against those pagan corruptions, such as most of the christian world worshiping on Sunday instead of Saturday. You don't get to pick and ...more

An excellent history of the debate that rages between those who believe what the Bible says about how the world came into existence and what the atheistic evolutionary theory says.

Quite the read here.

Morris establishes his arguments by first pointing out the ubiquitous saturation of practically the entire modern culture in evolutionary thought: not just science, but law, politics, the arts, and education have each become claimed territory in the evolutionary framework. As if this wasn't enough, many of the Juedo-Christian institutions of the day have capitulated to the idea, either by flat-out rejecting the Genesis account as myth or allegory or establishing a kind of syn

The Long War Against God, by Henry M. Morris, explains in great detail the convoluted history of the evolutionary movement. Morris starts by explaining how when you break it down Evolution was behind most of the major ideological movements in the past hundred years. He did a very good job pointing out it doesn't just permeate Communism, but also is the motivating theory behind Nazism, Colonialism, and racism.
Next Morris describes the men preceding and contemporary with Darwin who really paved

This was at times a difficult read, especially the first few chapters. At times I felt like I was walking uphill to understand some of the points, at others times it was exciting to read. Darwinism was nothing new, the author goes to great length to explain this. We can date many of the tenants well past 2,500 years ago. I was amazed just how anti-christian many of the naturalist from Darwin on back were, they were looking intentionally for a working theory that didn't need a creator. I also hav ...more

The author traces evolution all the way back to the Garden of Eden, but he does so in a convincing way, at least as far as the ancient Greeks. There are quotes by ancient Greek Epicureans/Stoics that sound like they had read Darwin!
It's a big book with a lot of information, but it is well researched, by a man with impeccable credentials.
Think about it, Lucifer never actually saw God create himself, he only had God's word that it was so, and he chose to believe God was lying from the very beginni

I struggled with rating this one. I love the author as a champion of biblical creationism and loved the concept and most of the content. His execution, however, isn't as smooth as I would have hoped, and it gets a little repetitive at times. That said, if you're looking for a well-researched (though slightly dated) discussion on the history of darwinian and marxist evolutionary theories and their disastrous effects on the last 150 years of human history, it's a good one.

The author tracks evolution all the way back to Lucifer's rebellion, claiming that anything that rejects God is evolution. Not sure how to wrap my brain around that one! Is there a name for a belief that Satan was the first evolutionist?

A very interesting read. I found reading about the history of evolution fascinating. Finally, someone who compiles all the evidence and presents it in a logical and well thought out format. Some of Dr. Morris' conclusions raise intriguing questions. I'd recommend this book to everyone I know.

The authors message is very well documented, very interesting, and covers a wide range of support, though it fails miserably to flow - reading it felt like a burden - upon completion a burden was lifted... ahh, freedom!

Great resource book.

Lots of good information on the history of the theory of evolution, showing it didn't at all start with Charles Darwin.
