More About the Author

Richard Milton is a writer, journalist and broadcaster on a wide range of subjects. He currently freelances for The Daily Telegraph and other papers. He is the author of six books including "Bad Company", which The Sunday Times made its Business Book of the Week, and which sets out to explain why large corporations sometimes behave in self-defeating and even insane ways. His controversial "Alternative Science" examines how and why good science is sometimes thrown out with the bad.

His novel "Dead Secret" is a mind-blowing paranormal thriller that has just been published on Kindle. His latest non-fiction title "Best of Enemies" looks at Anglo-German relations through two world wars and charts the origins of modern propaganda.

His controversial "Shattering the myths of Darwinism" has caused some members of the scientific establishment to start chewing the carpet and foaming at the mouth, by daring to demand real empirical evidence in support of their Darwinian beliefs, in place of conjecture and pseudoscience

I first came across Milton in a video interview. Although the book is a few years old now I still found it challenging and helpful. Mr Milton is very articulate ans sees through the weaknesses of Darwinism. A book to be recommended.

Richard explains in some detail how his book and ideas have been received by some in the scientific community. I was immediately struck by just how similar his experiences were to the way in which climate change sceptics are vilified and insulted by much of the established climate community. I am not a geologist nor a biologist, however I can understand and appreciate the very relevant points that Richard makes about the lack of robust science buoyed up by dedicated Darwin followers in spite of serious shortcomings in many areas. It is obvious that the planet is very old and that evolution by natural selection is very likely and indeed probable, however there are serious question marks in many areas of the science which should be investigated and resolved rather than covered over. Having read the book, I'm not sure my opinion has changed significantly, but I am now more open to scepticism in respect of evolution and the history of the planet. Personally I think that is a good and healthy thing. It's a shame more scientists don't have the courage to stand up and be counted.

I attended a lecture by this author a few years back, held incidently under the auspices of Mensa. Rather than being the 'rant and raving' approach suggested by some reviewers he presented his approach in an orderly, factual manner. The thrust of his lecture was to look at the FACTS - and base our understanding on these rather than just theories and conjectures. The book seeks to do this. The writer is a lifelong Scientific journalist and has researched a lot of facts known by but hidden from public view by the evolutionist lobby. The problem is that instead of looking at subject with an open mind we approach it (evolution etc.) with pre-conceieved ideas moulded in many cases by manipulative teaching and journalism based not on facts but theories and conjectures.
The book is a very readable attempt to encourage readers to consider that there are very concrete facts which go against the accepted views of evolution.
Approach the book with an open mind and you will find it challenging and thought provoking. Approach it from the point of view that the writer is 'ranting and raving' and you will totally miss the point of what he is tying to get across.
Having listened to the author I got the impression that he did a lot of research on his subject and approached it with an open mind and came to his conclusions after looking at the facts rather than from a mind set fixed and unwilling to look facts honestly.

I just simply could not put this book down!! At last someone willing and eminantetly abe to present a clear and compelling case for the re-evaluation of the dark arts of neo-darwinism. We must take a long hard look at this subject right now and truely hope that Richards book is the catalyst thats needed to start the prcess.

Excellent read well done 5 stars

Format: Paperback
Richard Milton's "Shattering the Myths of Darwinism" is an anti-Darwinist book, which earned the writer a brief notoriety after a series of conflicts with world-leading evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Apparently, Dawkins persuaded a British newspaper not to publish an article by Milton, and wrote a scathing review of his book. Among other things, Dawkins called Milton a creationist ally or dupe.

Milton doesn't call himself a creationist. He's not a Christian fundamentalist, and seems to lack religious affiliation altogether. He even claims to believe in evolution. However, most of his arguments seem to be taken from creationist sources. Since these arguments are anti-evolutionary, they tend to contradict Milton's claim that he does believe in evolution, after all. This in itself was quite enough to anger the Darwinists. By contrast, the creationists were soon distributing Milton's book - I actually bought it from a young earth group in Sweden.

But there's more. Milton liberally makes use of arguments from the works of Melvin A. Cook, without mentioning the salient fact that Cook was a Mormon creationist. This explains one of Cook's more curious arguments: that the matter making up our planet might be over 4 billion years old, thus explaining the radiometric dates, but that the Earth might still be very young. Milton rehashes this argument, apparently without realizing that it's based on Mormon theology. The Mormons believe that matter is eternal, but that the gods didn't fashion the Earth out of this eternal matter until about 6000 years ago. Thus, Milton isn't even sure whether the Earth is old, making it even stranger how he can believe in evolution.

The clearest picking apart of the theory of evolution that I've read. Read this book twice and enjoyed it even more the second time round. Don't be fooled by so called brilliant scientific minds like Richard Dawkins - who avoid some of the simple questions that this intelligent writer poses.
