Over the years, I have read many books and watched videos on evolution vs. creation. Most of the time, evolution is defended by a PhD researcher in some area of science from a prestigious university. Usually, a pretty credible sounding person. On the other hand, creation is usually defended by a theologian or lay person who uses nothing but the Bible to refute the scientific findings of the researcher. As a Christian, you might say “The Bible is all the proof of creation I need.” While that is a great testimony to your faith, the Bible is not enough to prove creation in scientific terms to people with little or no Christian background.
A month or so back, I received a copy of Evolution: The Grand Experiment after chatting with my friends over at New Leaf Publishing. I was inquiring about resources that presented proof of creation from a scientific point of view. My kids and my science students are bombarded with evolution in every science and nature book they read and documentary they watch. In all instances, the theory of evolution was presented as fact and the idea of divine creation was either never mentioned or spoken of as a myth. I wanted the kids to know that there is scientific evidence for creation and that there is not enough scientific evidence to bring evolution out of the realm of theory. I want to arm them with the knowledge they will need.
Evolution: The Grand Experiment is one of the best creation resources I have ever read. It actually presents creation from a scientific point of view from credible scientists. It examines evolution strongholds like the geological column, fossil records and transitional species. Experts from both sides of the argument are consulted and the facts are laid out. The book shows there is more evidence for a divine creation than for evolution. The information is given in clear, everyday language that is easy to understand, with lots of photos and illustrations support the text.
This is a must have resource for anyone teaching science or anyone who has children taking science courses where evolution is stressed and creation is looked over. Evolution: The Grand Experiment is a great resource for homeschool, family study or small groups.
