Book Description

31 Mar 2000
Compelling evidence that the most important assumptions on which Darwinism rests are wrong. The controversial best-seller that sent Oxford University and Nature magazine into a frenzy. SHATTERING THE MYTHS OF DARWINISM exposes the gaping holes in an ideology that has reigned unchallenged over the scientific world for a century. Darwinism is considered to be hard fact, the only acceptable explanation for the formation of life on Earth, but with keen insight and objectivity Richard Milton reveals that the theory totters atop a shambles of outdated and circumstantial evidence which in any less controversial field would have been questioned long ago. Sticking to the facts at hand and tackling a vast array of topics, SHATTERING THE MYTHS OF DARWINISM offers compelling evidence that the theory of evolution has become an act of faith rather than a functioning science and that not until the scientific method is applied to it and the right questions are asked will we ever get the true answers to the mystery of life on Earth.

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 have not read this book yet. But I have watched many of the videos with Richard Milton explaining the same (TRUTHS) in this book. And going by Richard Milton's videos, he is most certainly right and telling the ''absolute'' (TRUTH)

Of course I am only talking about Richard Miltons research regarding evolution. And not what and where he believes man came from and his belief in God.

Sadly the (TRUTH) is not what most people want to see, read, hear or believe.

I know that for a fact, as I have many friends and even family members who have no interest at all in the truth regarding the evidence that proves the facts, that supports and proves the reliability of the Holy Bible, from the 100's of Bible discoveries.

As for Charles Darwins theory of evolution. It remains a ''theory'' until any one can find the ''MISSING LINK'' If anyone finds it? please let me know, not only will they be very rich, but I promise you I will give up my faith in God and join there, at the moment, unproven religion.

Sad Charles Darwin with his mad imagination, who worked all his life with his crazy theory's to prove to the world that human's are animals and our first dad was an (APE)

Charles Darwin was a liar when he was a school boy. He liked inventing gratuitous fibs to his schoolmates and boasted that he could change the colour of flowers by watering them with certain coloured fluids. He admitted to acting cruelly by beating up his puppy. Later in his life things did not get better he had an absolute passion for shooting birds. It is also said that Darwin himself picked up his hammer and began killing peaceful birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't attack the messenger. 25 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Book of the Video 30 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demolishes Dawkins 23 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and well researched book. 29 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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

By A Customer
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.
