5.0 out of 5 stars The real facts.
Excellent book for those wishing to explore the real facts of the evolutionary theories of Darwinism. First published in 1992, Milton's well written and well researched work is still a worthy read on the theories expounded by Darwinism. Leave your presuppositions aside and read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Examines and exposes flaws in the science of evolution., 14 Mar. 2002
This review is from: The Facts of Life: Shattering the Myth of Darwinism (Paperback)
Richard Milton is a scientist, not a Christian fundamentalist. He examines the basic principles of the different evolutionary theories and exposes serious flaws. As for the age of the earth in millions of years, he clearly shows the circular arguments and ludicrous anomolies in accepted theories. This book is clear, well structured and completely scientific. Any scientist, student or theologian supporting the theory of evolution should read this and consider how firm the basis of their beliefs really is. This should be on the reading list of every A level science student, and that of every science, R.E. and humanities teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars A journalist examines the evolution debate, 5 May 2010

This review is from: The Facts of Life: Shattering the Myth of Darwinism (Paperback)
I initially picked up Richard Milton's 1992 book (since revised in 1997), on the strength of the title, and as an introductory look at the evolution debate. It goes without saying that at present there are many more books for than against evolution, but for two reasons I was interested in this one. I too, believe evolution as taught fatally flawed, but also read both sides of the argument in order to understand more about the physical world, and also how men choose to present evidence (see 'Darwin on Trial' by lawyer Phillip Johnson). For example, 'All scientists make experimental errors that they have to correct. They naturally prefer to correct them in the direction of the currently 'accepted' values, thus giving an unconscious trend to measured values.. this procedure is so common as to be unquestioned.. it most probably illustrates the desire of individual scientists to be accepted by their peer group and has nothing whatsoever to do with objectivity'. This issue is, I believe, of such importance, I welcome a trained journalist examining it.
Questions covered here date from the beginnings of the debate:
Has life on earth really been evolving into ever more complex forms from a few basic molecules millions of years ago?
Can species really evolve by means of genetic mutation and natural selection?
Is there any proof of `missing links' between man and ape, or dinosaur and bird?
Although Darwin may have expressed confidence further discoveries in the fossil record would substantiate the theory, have they?
Although evolutionists often quickly dismiss examples of complexity in the natural world, the fact remains that such examples could be listed almost ad infinitum, whether physical structures, such as the cell, organs of the body, or complex behaviours including the rearing of young, or inter-species dependence ( see 'Darwin's Black Box' by Michael Behe).
The author is at pains to present his investigations as independent of the tradition of special creation, or the current speculations of creationists. He does say that where he believes there is a scientific basis for their arguments, or the current case for intelligent design, he will examine such arguments with an open mind.
There is something to be said that today's creationists are still using the illogical reasoning of early evolution critics such as Bishop Wilberforce in the famous 1860 Oxford debate with Thomas Huxley (discussed in the book). Is it not sensible to look afresh at creation as originally presented in the Bible, and dispense with what we may think it says, and religious dogmatists ( for example, a literal six day creation) insist?

This review is from: The Facts of Life: Shattering the Myth of Darwinism (Paperback)
This is a very clear, precise, powerful description about how the world is so different from what is presented to us, by the official authorities in science. The title is self explanatory, this is scary to see how we can be made believe anything, and how far we are from truth.

Firstly, it must be pointed out that Richard Milton is not a scientist. He is a journalist with a poor grasp of evolutionary theory. The myths he claims to expose in this book turn out to be nothing more than misunderstandings about modern evolutionary thought.

Milton does not understand his subject matter. He seems sincere in his doubts about evolution and certainly does not appear to be preaching a creationist agenda. However, I found all of his arguements against neo-darwinism to be based not on deficiencies of theory itself but on deficiencies in Milton's understanding of the theory.

This is not a scientific book, and has little but curiosity value.
